Week 5 (Use it Up!) Meal Plan:
Brunch: Milk rice and chicken curry - I had half a can of coconut milk in a jar in the fridge, that needed to be used up before it spoiled. I used most of it for the milk rice and added the rest to the chicken curry I already had in the fridge to make more gravy.
Dinner: Rice, chicken curry, the last serving of cooked green beans,
Brunch: French toast
Dinner: Rice, chicken curry (if there is any leftover)
Lunch: Rice, garbanzo beans curry, curried cabbage (finishing up leftovers); the first peach from the tree!
- I remembered to put the chicken to thaw, but, almost forgot to cook them! I only remembered when I saw Anne (Cooking and All That Jazz) post a recipe for a Buffalo chicken casserole! Then, I quickly broiled the drumsticks and ate one for my efforts! LOL!
Dinner: Salad, broiled chicken drumsticks
Planned baking for the week: zucchini muffins, maybe bread pudding
I didn't make bread pudding, after all, because I ate several sandwiches during the week and ate most of the bread I had kept in the fridge (a few other slices were frozen).
This has been my attempt at meal planning during the month of May. I am not sure if it was successful or not, because I made so many changes to the planned meals. I am also not sure if I will continue to meal plan in June.
However, today (Monday, June 1), I had milkrice with fish curry for brunch, followed by a peach. Dinner was going to be pasta with meat sauce, but, the ground beef still hadn't thawed, so I finished the last piece of grilled chicken.
I have a little bit of curried green beans and a serving of fish curry left in the fridge to be finished this week, and the package of thawing ground beef needs to be cooked - if I make the meat sauce, then, I can see myself eating pasta with it for several meals, this week.
Do you meal plan on a regular basis? Or, do you decide on a daily basis, depending on what you feel like eating?
