Menu Planning Monday

It was a busy weekend in the Snapshot and Snippets household as we had two birthdays in the family to celebrate - my nephew is now two and my brother is now the big 4 0. Hopefully I will be able to pull together a coherent Menu Planning Monday menu today !!

If you don't know much about Menu Planning I have a post all about it HERE and you can read more about it and find more menu's at I am an Organizing Junkie  
So Here is this week's menu. 



I found gammon Steaks at the supermarket the other day - they make a quick and easy dinner when I am in a rush and I know my daughter will eat them. 


For those days when you have a lot on the slow-cooker is a brilliant I can fill it in the morning and thanks to a timer plug i can get it to switch on when I like and cook all day so I come home to a wonderful dinner - My slow-cooker Chilli recipe is available here


Bacon and Chorizo gratin is one of the earliest recipes I shared and is such a great comfort food without piling on the pounds - I love it. The recipe is available - HERE


Thursday in our house is always Pizza night to give me an easy option on shopping night - making pizza is easy if you make the dough in advance and store it in the freezer - the recipe for the pizza dough is HERE


Thanks to Aldi's special meat offers last week I have a selection of fish in the freezer and I am making Fantastic Fish Pie - it is such a great recipe to get fish into kids - mine love it. 


Sometime you need an easy recipe on the weekend something so you can relax and enjoy the day without slaving in the kitchen and this Carbonara recipe couldn't be easier or tastier - the recipe is available HERE


Sunday is roast day - a day of indulgence of sitting around the table as family and what could be more indulgent for dessert than Chocolate Fudge cake ? Get a printable recipe and instructions HERE

Well that is this week's Menu I hope you enjoy it and don't forget to tune in every week for more ideas.
