I don't have a menu plan but tonight I'm cooking beef and garlic enchiladas with capsicum, tomato, lettuce and grated cheese. We use the Old El Paso kits. Easy and tasty!

Jambalaya tomorrow night. We had pumpkin and silverbeet soup last night. Going to have oven roasted chicken legstuesday night with veggies and mash.
I get a lot of recipes from Budget Bytes. Beth's menus vary a lot and she also has great recipes for basics and cheap but filling stuff. She does use American measurements and terminology, and some of it is quite spicy, but it's a great jumping off point.

Tonight is pumpkin ravioli with brown butter. I filled the ravioli yesterday, using gow gee wrappers I bought at the supermarket. So all I need to do tonight is brown the butter.
I'll probably have the same thing tomorrow, as my husband is interstate and won't be partaking of this meal I preprepared just for him.

I brought some precrumbed chicken tenders from Aldi which will hopefully be okay as am very mistrusting of chicken nowadays. Have Lebanese bread, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, cheese and Greek yogurt and planning on making them into wraps.

Will make a spag bog sauce before I leave for work. Most un-inventive, un-inspiring meal.
Hubby can cook pasta when he gets home.
It is quick, I can pack veggies in that they cant pull out. And they eat it. Winning.
havent planned for the rest of the week yet. But trying to use up meat in the freezer.

I made chicken roast last night, tonight is thai green curry,Tues - Beef wraps and salad, wed - toasties (because we have tae kwon do and everyone is tired), That is far as I have this week.
I wouldn't mind doing a stirfry with loads of veg by Friday though, or something equally delish!

I did my fortnightly plan yesterday and now I'm at work and don't have it on me, but from memory it included:
Quiche, chips & salad
Crumbed chicken, potato bake & veg
Pork chops & salad
Beef fajita wraps
Beef stroganoff with pasta
Sticky baked pork chops
A few more things that I can't remember
I am trying to use up what is in our freezer and stop spending so much money at the supermarket. I was pretty happy to do a shop yesterday for the above plan and only spent $110!
I will have to stock up later in the week on fresh fruit for school and milk/bread but so far the budget is happy

Tonight we had okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes), and tomorrow we'll have mini pizzas on sliced bread to use up the leftover veggies.
And it's all vegan. Thaaaaat's right. EB turned me vegan, and I haven't looked back since that thread about cows' milk. Thanks a bloody lot, EB!
