Weekly Menu Plan - W/C 14th November 2011

Monday 14th November
Lasagne with Steamed Veggies in Varoma 

You will need - Bolognaise Sauce  and  White Sauce, Lasagna Sheets, Grated Cheese and whatever vegies you'd like to steam. 

Using a lasagna dish, put a little Bolognaise sauce down, then pasta sheets on top, then white sauce - repeat same process until lasagna dish is filled - usually can repeat about 3 or 4 times.   Always end with white sauce and lots of grated cheese.  Bake in hot oven (200 degrees) for about an hour - or until golden and cheese is melted.

Fill bowl with 1 litre of hot water and place veggies of choice in your Varoma - steam for 20 minutes or so or until tender.  Remember you can put your faster steaming vegies on the top tray and just slip that tray on top for the last 5 minutes or so.

Tuesday 15th November
Zucchini Slice with Garlic Bread

Zucchini Slice 

Garlic Bread - I just use some sliced Bread  or any bread recipe and top with butter and lots of fresh garlic chopped and a sprinkle of  herbs - bake under grill until butter is golden

Wednesday 16th November
Chicken Schnitzels  with Roast Veggies 

Chicken Breast cut in half (so they're thinner)
Old Bread
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour
Assortment of veggies to roast - Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Onion etc. 

Using old bread to make breadcrumbs makes GREAT schnitzel crumbing......
Put bread into bowl and set on Closed lid position - Turbo 3 times

Lay veggies in baking dish and drizzle with oil (even throw in some garlic cloves if you like) place in preheated HOT 200 degree oven and bake until crunchy and cooked through
Dip chicken into flour then egg then breadcrumbs - repeat until all chicken is coated.
Shallow fry in oil until chicken in cooked through and crumb is cooked and golden
Serve with Roast Veggies
We don't have gravy often - but this would goes nicely with schnitzels if you're a gravy lover.....if someone could share their favourite recipe that would be great....

Thursday 17th November
Moroccan Lamb

Served with Sweet potato peas and corn - my kids LOVE Sweet potato - we almost eat it every night

Friday 18th November
Creamy Pesto Pasta
A favourite of mine for a very long time - even before TMX - except now I don't need to buy pesto - what a huge saving this is.....
