Monthly menu plan - August/September


We're already in the tail-end of August? And it's nearly September? Once again the year is slipping by. Soon it will be summer, and all I'll want to eat is cool tomatoes and juicy mangos, but there's still a few chilly days left yet until that happens. So - to the plan: I've snuck in a few wintry favourites. Got to enjoy them while I can still can!

Week One:
Monday - Chilli tofu and vegetable stir fry on brown rice

  1. I started following your blog for the sewing, but I am loving your monthly meal plans! You have inspired me to vegefy my meal plans - for health and sustainability. Thanks!

  2. If only I could be as organised. I have a vegetarian daughter so it's great to get some menu ideas.
