Well last week, in terms of my menu plan, was a bit of a disaster.  My freezer was ‘accidentally’ switched off when we were preparing for a storm (many things get unplugged to prevent damage, but not usually the freezer!).   Of course, this meant I ended up with quite a bit of defrosted foods to play with and try and use up.  Fortunately, only the top basket (it’s a chest freezer) was completely defrosted, the bottom section remained largely intact.

The main ingredient I was left with was bacon.  I always buy up in bulk when it’s on special and freeze it.  Such a buy up had recently occurred so there was plenty of bacon to get rid of.  Two of my favourite recipes came to the fore – Bacon & Egg Pasta (my version of Pasta Carbonara) and Zucchini Slice.  It was actually really nice to have both of these again, it’s been a long time.

This week is going to be a very hot one according to the weather gurus, so I plan on keeping it mostly light and cool.  I also plan on starting my Christmas cooking – the cakes and puddings.  Here’s the plan for the week:

Monday – Barbecue Chicken & Salad
Tuesday – Lamb & Noodle Stir Fry
Wednesday – Fish, Chips & Salad
Thursday – Kangaroo Tacos
Friday – Pizza Pie
Saturday – Barbecue Hamburgers
Sunday – Spaghetti Bolognese

Extras – Christmas Cakes, Christmas Puddings

Have a great week!
