Here's how last week's meal planning worked out:
Week 2 Meal Plan (2/7 - 2/13):
Brunch - Egg salad sandwiches
Dinner - Garden salad - Japanese purple mustard greens, purple mizuna, chard, Japanese spinach, baby beet greens, all from the garden, with bottled salad dressing (I found the purple mustard greens to be a little too peppery to eat raw in a salad; they are not that peppery when cooked)
Pork gyoza (potstickers) - appetizer
Leftover salmon and green beans (from Sunday's dinner), sauteed mixed garden greens, rice
Brunch - Boiled mung beans, with katta sambol
Dinner - Spicy Ground turkey
laab, stir fried vegetables (peapods from the garden, carrots, sliced broccoli stem, frozen corn, and peanuts), rice (daughter; I had a slice of whole grain bread, much later)
Brunch - Leftover mung beans; toast and
scrambled leftover egg salad
Dinner - Assorted leftovers: Salmon, rice, green beans, eggplant, sauteed greens, chutney
Fried rice Leftover egg salad on toast (me); leftover sardines on toast (daughter)
Dinner -Daughter - Leftover chicken curry,
cucumber salad, rice, chutney, sauteed greens;
Me - leftover fish curry, rice, eggplant, and sauteed greens (me)
Tuna salad sandwiches Koththu roti with leftover chicken curry and sauteed greens added to it
Dinner - Leftovers from
Thursday's Tuesday's dinner
Brunch - Sauteed chickpeas
Koththu roti Daughter - kuftha from the freezer; me - soup
Cinnamon rolls for dessert!
Dinner: - Roast pork, vegetables
Well, that didn't turn out too badly, did it? We ate mostly what was planned with a little tweaking to use up leftovers and what we felt like eating (koththu roti instead of tuna salad sandwiches; waffles instead of pancakes)
Here's the plan for this week (February 14- 20) -
Brunch: Fast food! Hamburgers and fries from the drive-thru!
Dinner: Leftover pork roast and vegetables, salad
Brunch: Leftover spicy chickpeas or fried rice
Dinner: Sauteed chicken thighs with broccoli and carrots, rice
Brunch: Salad with shredded chicken
Dinner: Chicken curry, rice, cooked greens, cucumber salad, etc.
Brunch: Scrambled eggs and toast or leftovers
Dinner: "Homemade" pizza using ready-made pizza crust; salad
Brunch: Muffins or toast
Dinner: Leftovers - either sauteed chicken or chicken curry and sides
Brunch: ??? Ramen noodles???
Dinner: Koththu roti to use up leftover chicken curry, etc.
Dinner: Salmon, rice, stir-fried vegetables
This week's meal plan is based on what I have on hand in the freezer and pantry, as I haven't planned a grocery shopping trip for this week although, daughter's half & half (coffee cream) seems to be going off sooner than the best by date on the container, so I might have to make a grocery pick up sooner than later. I have taken out a tray of chicken thighs to thaw and plan to cook it two ways and friend R gave me a ready-made pizza base, so I will have daughter make us a pizza, mid-week.
How is your meal planning coming along?
