Menu Planning Monday 10th-16th May 2021


Last weeks menu plan went down well as Craig did not know in advance what we were having so he could not say anything to make me change it. I am going to do the same this week and see how we go.

On the Menu
Monday -Mushroom Bourguignon with mashed potato
Tuesday - Creamy Chicken pasta bake
Wednesday Salisbury Steak with green beans and roast potatoes
Thursday - Cajun Spicy Rice
Friday - Donner style kebab fakeaway
Saturday Lamb Rogan Josh
Sunday- Shredded Buffalo Chicken

The Weather

Not really the weather we would expect at this time of year. Not sure if I am going to be able to get out and do my garden project this weekend. I might be able to make a start but it will take a while to do.

On my to do list
As well as starting the garden project I am also going to finish off another craft project by the end of tomorrow. I also need to wash the curtains in the craft room and my bedroom as well as removing Penny's nose art from the craft room window. I am also looking for inspiration on a design that I can make on my Cricut for a clear phone case I have ordered.

Around the House
I managed to organise and clean the cupboards in the kitchen last week so this week the focus is my bedroom. I need to empty and clean my wardrobe, sort through my clothes and do a switch out. I will also need to get Matthew to try on his clothes. He is growing like a bean at the moment and I cannot keep up with buying jeans for him. I haven't even really looked at tops and t-shirts with being in lockdown he has lived in his pyjamas as he wasn't going out.

What I am creating

I am still working on my courthouse steps blanket but would also really like to get the Tigger part of the Disney Cross stitch sampler finished this month. I have recently received my latest issues which is issue 34. I am still working on issue 1. I have got a lot of catching up to do.

Wishing you all a good week.

Looking forward to seeing what Katy Kicker has on the menu this week.


  1. Sorting and switching clothes is on my list for this week as well. Of course, every time I think I'll put winter away for good, it gets cold again! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't tell what is on the menu until it's time to eat. I find it's the best way to cut down on food waste.

    Hope you have a good week and are able to get some projects done.

    1. I agree, but if Craig doesn't want to eat it then I am sure the dog will thoroughly enjoy it.

  3. Nice to read your poste. Have a great week

  4. Your meals sound great esp the shreded chicken

  5. Your meal plan sounds amazing! Thanks for linking up, I hope you have a great week ahead!

  6. Your menu sounds so good. Thankfully my husband and kids don't ever talk me out of whatever I'm cooking hahahah

    I just washed my curtains in the dining room, and put on some pretty lace ones. It immediately gives the room a new look.

    Hope you're having a lovely week so far.
