The next two weeks are going to be super busy getting the boys ready to go back to school (my first year with two lots of school books to cover - ugh!), so I'm actually just giving myself a bit of a leave pass and taking it easy until school goes back. After all, it is holidays!
Even in holiday mode though, we still need to eat and I still find it easier to menu plan than fly by the seat of my pants. We're also trying, like many people, to pull our spending heads in a little after Christmas, so I'm using up the stores of meat in our freezer and also choosing some less expensive meal options.
So, here's what's on our menu this week:-
Monday: Tenina's Five Spice Meatballs from Dinner Spinner, which are a big hit in our family and have been on our plates regularly since we first tried them.
Thursday: Corned Beef Hash Cakes, made from the leftover corned beef, served with salad.
Friday: Quirky Cooking's Beef Fajitas. I love this recipe and love the fact that making your own tortillas is so simple and delicious!
Saturday: Mr MLT will be making Omlettes. This is our usual Saturday night fare on the nights when I work an afternoon shift (and thanks to our lovely chooks, we usually have an endless stream of beautiful eggs to use). This Saturday is my final day at work, so I think I'll be having a little champagne with my omlette!
I do have a plan to finish my Newsletter this week and get it sent out, before too much more of January elapses! I'm also back to demo's this week, so the holiday is coming to an end. However, it's stinking hot here today so I think I'll go and jump in the pool and make the most of the last few days of relaxtion while I can.....
