Menu Monday 2nd August 2010

I had a realization this weekend; I feel so much better when I sleep properly.  I know this is common knowledge but I have figured out that I get more tired as the week progresses.  I have two evenings when I get home especially late then go to bed later than normal after cooking and cleaning up so I have decided that the way to go is to plan two super easy, quick to make dinners.  These fast meals might include leftovers.

The other idea I have in my plan to make week nights easier, is to cook at least one major ingredient over the weekend to use during the week.  This will most probably be a slow cooker item but you never know.

Weekend Cooking – Easy Ratatouille and chicken stock in the slow cooker

Monday – Quick salad with pear, Serrano ham, blue cheese and greens

Tuesday – Pasta with peppers and mozzaralla

Wednesday – Ratatouille with pan fried fish

Thursday – Mushroom risotto with homemade chicken stock

Friday – Omelette filled with ratatouille and goat’s cheese

Saturday – Black beans ( from the freezer) with chilli and honey coated pork steaks

Sunday – Family day out so no cooking

  1. I just rip the ham into small pieces. The sweet pear goes really well with the salty ham and blue cheese. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Oh yes, sleep is so important, the foundation I think. Hope you find a solution that helps with finding some extra rest that you need!

    Sandwich and soup night? Let us know what works for you!
