The best Idea ever!

Playing along with Cheryl.
 My word girls, this is the best idea ever! This is a special edition magazine by Ideas/Idees magazine and was published on the 16th of August. I have not been able to find out if it was also published in English. The magazine features a menu with recipes for every weekday of the year, starting in January and right through to December. Every week has a selection with a vegetarian option, fish meal, pork, red meat and chicken. Some weeks even has a shopping list. Now I am the first to admit that some of the meals will not be a hit with my almost 3 years olds, but hec, with the amount of recipes you just swop out with another week for that night. I have made quite a few - all have been easy, relatively fast and tasty. This is really amazingly brilliant. And so makes my Monday - this week we will be eating a week from this mag.

To all my dear blogging friends, an apology. I am not getting around reading blogs like is used to. Work is hectic, time at home is limited. Especially the overseas girls with time differences - I still sometimes get around the local time ones as I see updates while working, but there's no way that I get around reading all the updates in one shot. I will get to you, I promise. And thanks for your kind comments.

I also have a new book review up at Cat's Bookclub - The Road Home


  1. I MUST have that magazine. Hope they have it in English as by the time I translate I could have cooked the meal :)

    Cat, on the bright side, at least there's nothing wrong in your life, right? :)

  2. I also try eating a week of what's inside this magazine every month. Makes the menu of dinners more interesting. Enjoy

  3. I hope that is out in English. I am going to have to keep a look out.

  4. Thanks for explaining as I did wonder what had happened to you ~ I do visit your blog and the other day could not comment and felt so bad as I didnt want you to think I was not visiting cause you were not visiting!
    I also try keep up with you on twitter, I hope u see my messages there as well as your blog.
    Germany is the same time as SA and when we in winter and you summer we an hour behind only.

  5. Am sure this would have come out in English - will have to squizz when next in EL. I recently hauled out all my Low GI cookbooks and have been cooking up a meal from them daily. Does require planning but the health benefits far outweigh the planning issues!

  6. What a clever idea! I must see if I can get my hands on a copy as well.

  7. what a great idea!! It seems we are either making the same thing all the time or at a loss of what to make with what we have on hand. I used to plan a weekly menu but got out of the habit and haven't gotten back into it yet!

  8. Oh! If they DON'T have this magazine in English I sure hope they do soon!

    Hang in there with all the drains on your time...know the feeling well...wishing you some happy moments of repose and rest, sweet Cat!

    Thank you so much for playing along with Makes My Monday!

  9. Looks like a wonderful idea and magazine. That would make my year not just my day. Now if only we can get someone else to prepare the food for us we'd really be flying high. LOL


So what's on your mind?
