Plan it - Don't Panic menu plan week 5

For this week's menu plan, I actually listed out the contents of my fridge, freezer and pantry so I would have an idea of what needed using up. 

The entire menu is based around food we already have in the house, so I shouldn't have to do a big supermarket shop this week.

I'm trying to get into the habit of doing big fortnightly shops at our local Pak'N'Save, on the same night I pick up our raw milk. It saves petrol if I make the trips together, since both spots are near to each other. It also means I can go by myself, while Paul stays home to mind the girls. 

It's so much easier grocery shopping without kiddliwinks!

This week I'm giving Paul a break from slow cooker meals, since that's what we've been living on for the last fortnight.

This week's menu plan

Monday - Lamb and potato curry on rice.

Tuesday -  Lasagne. (Use leftovers for lunches.)

Wednesday - Butter chicken on rice, sautéed cabbage.

Thursday - Roast beef and vegetables.

Friday - Grilled pork slices, potato gratin, side vegetables in a homemade honey mustard dressing.

Saturday - Pumpkin, peanut and kumara soup with homemade dinner rolls.

Sunday - Soaked tortilla wraps with Mexican mince and salad fixings.
