When daylight saving starts I do a little happy dance (in my head - I would never traumatise you by actually dancing) and not just because I love the lighter evenings. No, my favourite part of daylight saving is that Wayne takes over the cooking, or most of it, on the barbecue.
It makes me smile to know that most of what we'll be eating for the next five months will be cooked outside, leaving the cooktop and oven clean. Oh joy, oh bliss! No more cleaning cooking messes for the summer!
Of course that means that I need to adjust the meal plan to meals that are easily cooked on the barbecue or on the rotisserie, and you'll see that reflected in future meal plans for the summer.
This week's menu has four meals that will be cooked on the barbecue: the Sunday roast, Tuesday's stuffed drumsticks, the mini meatloaves and the Thursday night pizzas.
This week we will be eating:
Sunday: Roast Lamb, baked vegetables, broccoli, gravy and mint sauce
Monday: Wellington Loaf, mash, veggies
Tuesday: Stuffed drumsticks, baked veggies
Wednesday: Mini meatloaves and salad
Thursday: MOO Pizza
Friday: Fish'n'Chips, coleslaw
Saturday: Sausage rolls and salad
