Jubilee Meal Planning Monday…..
Cakes, Sandwiches, Fish and Barbecues!
I am LOVING the Diamond Jubilee feeling…….there has been a palpable feeling of pride and patriotism and for me, an excuse to treat myself and some house guest to lovely food and drink, all in the name of the Jubilee! So, this week’s meal plan is JUST a little decadent and frivolous! Despite the weather I am planning a barbecue or two, and I am also baking and concocting lovely treats for the Jubilee tea time table. My meal plan is a LITTLE loose for some days…….and I may not stick to it, but I love the idea of a “framework” on which to plan my meals, and it does make it easier sometimes, although I often “rebel” against my own ideas and change the menu! So, here we go…….here’s my Jubilee Week Menu Plan, and with a BIG thanks to Mrs M who is kind enough to host this weekly blog challenge. Karen.

My back yard is my neighborhood street party. we do best with about 8 guests at a time, but can fit 12 when needed. My wife has caught Jubilee fever and has our DVR set for a few of the specials. One of our history specialty channels did a retrospect of the Royal family during WWII and I was captivated. Nice to see her getting her well deserved honors.
Thanks Dave! I HOPE your wife enjoyed the jubilee on the TV! I LOVED every minute of it and felt so proud to be British!
