Jayne of the Barefoot Kitchen Witch chose Coconut Butter Thins this week and they sound delicious. Nothing too fancy but golden, buttery, some nice flavours. I think I would have liked them. Oh well. Make sure you visit her blog for the recipe!
What I have been doing this week is some menu planning. The aim being to eat a fairly varied diet over the next few weeks and also to build up our frozen meal supplies for the babymoon:
Monday 30th - Apricot Chicken with Herbed Couscous
Tuesday 31st - Macaroni and Cheese with Sautéed Mushrooms and Bacon (Doubled for Freezer)
Wednesday 1st - Tomato Soup with Toast
Thursday 2nd - Hamburgers with the lot
Friday 3rd - Roast Chicken with Vegetables
Saturday 4th - Homemade Curry (Doubled for Freezer)
Sunday 5th - Tacos
Monday 6th - Fish and Chips
Tuesday 7th - Chicken and Sweet Potato Casserole (Doubled for Freezer)
Wednesday 8th - Lamb Steaks with Greek Salad
Thursday 9th - Tuna and Caper Pasta Salad
Friday 10th - Steak and Guiness Pie (Doubled for Freezer)
We also did minor bathroom renovations this weekend because I couldn't stand the 70s yellow walls anymore and I organised my baking cupboard.
Just on that issue, I have 16 muffin trays. Why would any sane person need so many muffin trays? Sure there are minis, regulars and texas sized pans, some have 12 holes (and therefore don't even fit in our oven here) and some only have 6. But still. I hardly ever make muffins. I shall have to remedy that.
