As you may have guessed from my lack of posts recently, I have been rather busy both physically and mentally. There is a lot going on at the moment and I had dropped the ball as far as menu planning went. We have still been eating meals – almost all cooked at home but I have been throwing them together without a lot of thought.
Today I decided that I needed to refocus and get organised. Here is the plan for the week
Sunday – Beef stroganoff with mashed sweet potato and green beans
Monday – Stuffed mushroom slice with coleslaw
Tuesday – Sausages and salad
Wednesday – Chicken and green bean stir-fry
Thursday – Nachos with refried beans and guacamole
Friday – Cheese omelette with bacon and avocado
Saturday – Rissoles and salad
We have green beans and avocadoes from the garden and the remaining fruit and vegetables that I need were bought this afternoon. By having a plan I make sure that I use the food on hand, wastage is reduced (hopefully to zero) and I can do some preparation the night before.
The other thing that I like to plan in advance is the clothes that I am going to wear. Here in south-east Queensland we are into some seriously warm weather with the maximum temperatures forecast for this week ranging from 26C up to 32C so my footwear each day will be my very comfortable strappy sandals with a small heel. Here are my planned clothes for the week.
Monday – white cotton drill 3/4 pants and blue/white striped collared shirt
Tuesday – sleeveless cotton dress – black with white spots
Wednesday – skirt – cream with black spots and black sleeveless t-shirt
Thursday – Pink/red/white floral, sleeveless dress
Friday – skirt – navy with white spots and white sleeveless t-shirt
It can still be cool in the mornings and also the office is air-conditioned so I will wear a red 3/4 sleeve cardigan with all of these outfits as required.
I will try to take and post a photo of my outfit each day.
What do you plan in advance?
