Menu Plan Monday

Monday - roast chook, veges etc
Tuesday - Nasi goreng
Wednesday - Lamb chops, spuds & greens
Thursday - Chicken tortilla things
Friday - Beef skewers and fragrant rice (yeah yeah I know, but I like 'em)
Sat/Sun - flexiplan meals i.e. I haven't decided.

Last week's plan went well, the party went well and a good time had by all. I made a lot of stuff prior to the day so that meant I didn't have too much to do on the day. The birthday cake wasn't such a success though because I didn't entirely follow the instructions.

Making DH's birthday cake seems to always cause me grief! Kids cakes and every day baking cakes don't seem to be an issue. I don't know why but it seems of all the cakes I've made him in our 9 years of married life, so far only one has been a cake I've been entirely happy with! I always seem to do something wrong. One year I left out the sugar. How stupid was that?!

My darling FIL has been toiling all day today fixing up our windows. He discovered my kitchen windows were rotting in several places so he's been scraping, gouging, treating, bogging, sanding and painting to get them fixed. He's up on a ladder - the kitchen is up on the second level - and it gives me the heebee jeebies to see him perched up there with concrete below doing all this work.

Mum and MIL have spent the day hitting the shops and both of them have had it! LOL! But it was all successful anyway.


  1. I'm glad the party went well, Penny.
    Your FIL sounds like a handy person to have come and stay!

  2. yipppe for wonderful birthday celebrations, how odd about the curse of the dh birthday cake, lol. FIL is a handyperson to have roun. Aww how cute about mil and your mum being exhausted from shopping.

  3. Tasty sounding week. I am yet to cook Nasi Goreng, it still sitting on my list of dishes to try.

  4. Can you send your FIL to me?

    We have 2 parties this month (both kids) and I am currently pondering an army cake...hmmm...
