Lush Living Made Simple

Menu Monday 4th October 2010 - The Lean Times


Oct 4, 2010 Menu Monday , , , 4 Comments

I don’t have much to report this week except for feeling as though I am not getting enough done.  I hate not living up to my own expectations.

Monday – Roast chicken with roast potatoes, parsnips and broccoli. My beloved is cooking for me, so I don’t have to yipee!

Tuesday – Gnocchi with homemade meat sauce

Wednesday – Curried Rice with shrimp

Thursday – Spice rubbed pork chops with black beans and yellow rice

Friday – Slow cooker Italian Wedding soup– made with stock from Monday’s chicken

Saturday – Mushroom risotto – I will hopefully find some wild mushrooms in the market. I will also be using my slow cooker chicken stock.

Have a wonderful and productive week!

    These days I just accomplish what I can and leave the rest for the next day. Of course if it’s time sensitive those things get done ASAP.
    You have a delicious menu planned for the week.

    Hi Rona, Thanks for commenting, I was doing really well on productivity when using Mark Forster’s Autofocus method. I wrote about it in this post but nothing works if you don’t do it and I seem to have let my eye go off the prize.

    I am so happy you liked my menu. Vxx
