Need some dinner inspiration for this week?

Struck dumb at the thought of another week of hungry mouths at dinnertime? Amazing how quickly Monday comes around and I’m left wondering, “What the hell am I going to feed everyone this week?” Which is weird, considering I’ve now published two cookbooks and three e-books on the topic and have around 200 recipes up my sleeve.

Still, being excited about making dinner EVERY SINGLE NIGHT is a battle for me too. Surely, SURELY, a night of air wouldn’t hurt while I have my feet up and my kindle (loaded with a crappy bodice-ripper) in hand? Alas no, pesky kids want actual food. So I’m trawling for meals that make me happy and inspired. Perhaps one of these will tickle your fancy this week too…

    We did out our menu plan this week and have some yummy stuff on it – mexican chook, pasta, beef stirfry and roast lamb πŸ™‚ I love rice paper rolls… might have to squeeze them in for lunch haven’t had them in ages!

    Thank you πŸ™‚ Is nice to know I’m not the only mum who would love a night alone with my Kindle LOL.
    I menu plan as well – and even so its hard to not get stuck in a rut. Especially with limited time to cook and clean up after, plus a small and fussy eater.
    Thanks for the inspirations.

    That is the second rice paper roll I’ve seen this week and I still have my packet in the pantry. Time to make my first batch i think.

    I am in the same boat. A tonne of healthy, yummy recipes to call on but no inspiration to cook them! Dessert on the other hand…

    Doing chicken rice paper rolls here this week πŸ™‚ I was going to do your Jerk Chicken tonight and use the leftovers in the rolls tomorrow, but my mini blender has seen its used by date, bits of plastic started falling off the inside where the blade turning bit goes through the lid 😦 So alas, I have fudged some herby, sweet chilli marinadey thing, will see how it goes.

    Also doing shepherds Pie and Vegie and chick pea strudel and a meal at my MILs. I think I will do the Witches Stew and Vegie Slice over the weekend. It really is soup weather here right now.

        On Wednesday hopefully. Can I ask what brand yours is?
        Maybe check yours too if it is similar to what mine was. I had no idea until I was fishing little bits of plastic out of some hummus.

        I’ve got a Braun. It’s been good but is also now on its last legs. Just trying to build a relationship with kambrook so I can get some giveaways.

    Rice Paper rolls are a quick and easy staple here too.
    Love the fresh garden mint in them.
    I am a last minute dinner preparer also.
    Thank goodness for my Thermie πŸ˜‰
