Whatchya Got Cookin’?

I’ve decided to start a new blog segment, semi-inspired by my friend Talia over at Cooking for Two.

Each fortnight, I’m going to share my menu plan with you, and if anyone is interested in any of the recipes, or even our fortnightly shopping list with the ingredients required to make all of these meals, I’ll be more than happy to share!

This fortnight is a little bit of a lazy menu plan, we’re usually a little more exciting. If you’re wondering, the reason there are less than 14 meals is because we usually have slow-cooked meals for two nights since they usually turn out to be huge.

I shop and cook on a budget, so you can be sure that all of my menu plans can be done on around $100-$120 per fortnight, and when I cook these meals for the two of us there is often enough left over for lunch the next day also.

So here we go, menu plan for this fortnight:

1.Vegetable Lasagne (layers of pasta, eggplant, capsicum, zucchini & pumpkin, with a ‘white sauce’ of cottage and ricotta cheeses). [for us this is enough for 2 nights]

2. Spaghetti Bolognaise

3. Home-made fish & chips + salad

4. Burritos

5. Chicken, green bean & broad bean soup. [enough for 2 nights]

6. Slow cooked lamb roast with roast potatoes, carrots and steamed greens. [makes enough for 2 nights]

7. Slow cooked corn beef with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables and white sauce.

8. (left over) corned beef and white sauce pie, with home-made shortcrust pasty.

9. Meat Lasagne

10. Slow cooked ‘sticky sausages’
