Menu Plan Monday - 26th May

Review of Last week's menu -

* The Swiss Steak was nice - Master 5 didn't like it because it had "sauce" all over it - he's not a sauce or gravy fan lol
* Pork Stir Fry was a bit bland to be honest. Don't think I'll bother with this one again.
* Continental Frankfurt bake - this was the surprise of the week - DH liked it! Again Master 5 wasn't fussed because it had sauce! It would also work really well with the spicy sausages that our butcher makes. I served it with this One Hour French Bread recipe I found on another blog - very delish!!

To use up this week:

Menu Plan this week:

I love how you include your garden in your menu post and I've been doing that a little bit too. Thank you for the idea!

I made the Swiss Steak too and everyone except the 6 year old liked it.
