Menu Plan Monday - Nov 26th
Big Monkey was finally well enough to go to kindergarten today. Life can start to get back to normal.
I'm sure I would have gone crazy with her at home for such a long time just a few weeks ago but although the last two weeks have been very tiring it's been OK. It is such a relief that she has finally accepted her brother and doesn't spend all her time annoying him any more.
She's also started getting dressed (even by herself) without long tantrums. She doesn't take her clothes off all the time any more. She stays with me most of the time when we go out.
She's a reformed character - finally out of her terrible twos phase (it only lasted 3 years!) Everything has suddenly got much easier for all of us. She's very proud of herself - as you can see in the photo (dressing-up at her best friend's house)
Little Monkey is, of course, now reaching the terrible twos! But he is generally more reasonable, doesn't scream all the time and I can normally understand what is annoying him. I hope it stays that way.
Anyway, to my menu plan. I'm very late posting this Monday so today's meal has already been eaten.
MONDAY - Speedy Potato and Cheese Bake (prepared by P.!)
TUESDAY - Tofu sausages, broccoli, sweetcorn, carrots and cottage cheese.
WEDNESDAY - Stuffed spinach and mushroom pancakes.
THURSDAY - Lentil curry (this has been on my plan for weeks and somehow always forgotten!)
FRIDAY - Baked potatoes with aubergine puree, hummus and salad
SATURDAY - Left overs (time to empty the fridge and restock)
SUNDAY - Pasta with vegetable sauce (from the freezer)
