Thermomix Menu Plan – January 16

Oops. I’ve seriously neglected the blog this week. I have a couple of recipes from this past week that I absolutely must blog sometime soon (including the most delicious and more-ish slow-cooked lamb shanks). But we’ve just moved, and now my phone is MIA and I’ve lost the food photos that were on there. I’ll get there eventually.

However, one exciting and very relevant thing I did this week was to purchase a menu planner from Kikki.K. Honestly though, I’m in two minds about it. It’s not wipe-off; you use one page every week. That seems pretty wasteful to me. However, it is seriously cute and has a handy magnet on the back so I can easily whack it on the fridge. I’m thinking I’m going to laminate a few of the pages, and that way they will be transformed into instant wipe-off menu plans! Hooray! And it has sections for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks – so hopefully my menu plans will get a lot more detailed so I don’t have empty spaces on my menu plan sheet. Double hooray!

    It was very yummy! Worked really well with the mushrooms, too. It was only a really subtle taste, it didn’t overwhelm the whole dish. Tyler practically inhaled it, and asked for seconds before I’d finished my own serving – so yeah, I’d say it was a hit!! :)
    I’ve also put it in shortbread and in cinnamon scrolls, but I’m still working on the exact proportions. It’s pretty good stuff!
