Menu Plan Monday

Ooh it's been ages since I posted! Things have been chaotically busy recently but all good. I missed last week's menu but we actually ate well and finally had those Rosemary Lamb Skewers which were really good.
In other news Jacob is sleeping through the night from around 9.30pm to 7am and this weekend moved into his cot. He had no problem with the transition and has taken to sleeping with his arms straight out to the sides which he couldn't do in the bassinet. He's also sleeping in a sleeping bag which he's been doing for a few weeks and seems to love it or maybe it's Mummy that loves it; very easy, he can't kick it off and I don't worry about covers over his face. He was almost busting out of the bassinet and looked huge but now seems so tiny in the big cot.
Any way here goes this week

Tuesday - Beef Nachos with refried beans, avocado, sour cream and a green salad

Mummy and me

I realised a couple of weeks ago that since those initial first photos in the hospital that there are very few photos of me and Jacob and hardly any of just the 2 of us. So I asked Luke to take some and these are a few of the results.

Menu Plan Monday

Well once again things didn't go quite as planned so a few things have migrated, those lamb skewers do not seem to want to make an appearance. I am looking forward to them though as I love BBQed meat.
Hopefully Thursday's restaurant visit with enfant in tow will go well - fingers crossed.

Monday - Quick Chicken Florentine with pasta and salad
Tuesday - Roast Chicken served with coleslaw and roasted vegetables
Wednesday -Roasted Chicken and Couscous Salad
Thursday - Valentine's Day - we're going out for dinner!
Friday - Lamb Cutlets with Tabouleh Couscous
Saturday - Rosemary Lamb Skewers with Spiced Yogurt, couscous and salad
Sunday -
Fettuccine Boscaiola served with a green salad

Menu Plan Monday

Well last week went well although we did succumb to takeaways on Friday night, I was exhausted and even though I'd spent the whole day at home and we were having a very easy salad I just couldn't do it, so we had pizza instead.
We resurrected the tuna salad for Sunday night and we're having the Massaman curry on Thursday as my father in law is coming to dinner Wednesday and Thursday and hopefully he will enjoy it.

- Greek Chicken Pasta served with a green salad
Tuesday - Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day - Egg & Ham Crepes with Gruyere served with a green salad
Wednesday -Ash Wednesday - Fish Burgers with salad
Thursday - Massaman Beef Curry served with jasmine rice and stirfried green beans
Friday - Felafel with pita bread, hummus, relish, yoghurt and salad
Saturday - Rosemary Lamb skewers with spiced yoghurt, couscous and salad
