Menu Plan October Week 3 & 4

So you remember those shaming photographs of my pantry - well for the next two weeks (and probably the rest of the year) I am going to try to use up all the stuff in there.

Here is a reminder:

This menu the ingredients I am going to try to use are red lentils (which are actually in a glass jar in another part of the kitchen!), tortillas, rice paper, rice noodles, and some beans.

Here we go:

Monday: Pasta bake with olives and pesto

Tuesday: Chops/Quorn with corn and asparagus

Wednesday: Grandma's for dinner

Thursday: Beef/Bean Burritos

Friday: Leftovers/Frozen dinner

Saturday: Fresh Spring Rolls - based on Janella Purcell's recipe (from her book Eating for the Seasons p16)
Sunday: Red Lentil Dahl (again from Janella p172)

Monday: Mexican bean burgers in lettuce cups

Tuesday: Quiche

Wednesday: Grandma's for Dinner

Thursday: Vegetable Stir Fry (page 29 - Janella)

Friday: Prawns in Chilli Oil and Turkish Bread and Salad

Saturday: Leftovers/Baked Eggs

Sunday: Healthy Fried Rice and leftover something

Menu Plan October Week 1

I have just looked at my last posting date and realise that it is July - oh my. 

While shamelessly ignoring my blog - I still have been menu planning and so thought I would slowly get back into it with a menu plan post.

Here it is:

Mexican Monday:Nachos - I know it's no real Mexican food - but it's a great way to use up leftovers in the fridge!
Tuesday: Lamb chops/Harissa tofu with corn and asparagus
Wednesday: Family dinner at Grandma's
Thursday: Red curry beef/vegetable with lychees
Friday: Pizza
Saturday: Omelettes with haloumi - based on Annabel Langbein's Fresh Herb Omelette recipe
Sunday: Leftovers

Mexican Monday: Tacos - bean/beef
Tuesday: Prawn and Mango Salad - based on Annabel Langbein's Prawn and Duck Salad recipe  
Wednesday: Family dinner at Grandma's
Thursday: Vegetable Quicje
Friday: Leftovers
Saturday: Salad with hot smoked salmon and a Caesar dressing
Sunday: Vegetable Soup

I used Annabel Langbein's Free Range in the City to plan this menu.

The next menu plan I am hoping to only have to do a shop for fresh items as my pantry is being to look a bit hoard-y - here's a few pictures to help me do it:

Yes, that is 5 packets of tortillas!

You cannot even see the top shelf!
