Menu Plan Monday - the comfort food edition!

It must be something about the cooler weather. Or the delicious recipes I have been reading in magazines lately. Or even just the feeling that life in a country town moves slower, and gives you more time to enjoy things like home cooking. Whatever it is, our menu this week is packed full of comfort food.

Chicken, sweet corn and tarragon pie, baked potato and veg (new recipe)

Homemade pizzas

Lamb and bean casserole with rosemary dumplings and mashed potato

Homemade sausage rolls, corn fritters and veg

Cottage pie, cauliflower with cheese sauce and beans

Roast chicken with baked vegetables

Spanish omelettes with bacon and toast

Spaghetti bolognaise with zucchini, pumpkin and carrot

Kimberly at Raising Olives commented that she does a weekly menu plan, but doesn't allocate specific days. That sounded nice and flexible to me, so that is what I plan to do.

Brad told me tonight that he wished we'd moved to a small town ages ago, as his palette is definitely enjoying the delicious meals I am serving up! What a sweetie.... little does he know, it just takes a plan, and a shopping list.

Don't forget to head to Organizing Junkie, for more great menu plans.
