Time to post a tentative meal plan for this week; it's anybody's guess if we will follow through with it, though! I am starting off the week with some leftover sauteed chicken in the fridge.
Once again, I am listing options:
Breakfast/Lunch Options for the Week:
- Scrambled eggs
- "Chow Mein" (stir fried chicken and garden vegetables with leftover pasta noodles)
- Leftover milkrice
- Boiled mung beans
- Egg salad sandwiches
- Garden salad with chicken
- Leftovers from dinners
- Leftover sauteed chicken with rice and broccoli
- Salmon, rice and vegetables
- Leftover salmon, rice and vegetables
- Ramen noodles with chicken and vegetables
- Coconut roti with chicken curry
- Fried rice with leftovers (maybe)
- Pizza (maybe)
Of course, everything is subject to change as we might decide to have something else quite different!
Are you meal planning this week?
I want to try making the milk rice. I am always wowed by your exotic meals!ReplyDelete
I hope you will try making the milk rice, Anne, and I hope you will like it. You can eat it with a curry for savory or with palm sugar for sweet.Delete
Your meal plan for the week would suit me better than a daily meal plan and looks good to me. It's sort of what I do when I place my weekly online grocery order, a week's worth of meals but in no particular order.ReplyDelete
I like the concept of having a set meal plan for the days of the week, but, try as I might, it doesn't work that way for me. Having a list of options seems to work better. It gives me more flexibility. :)Delete
I usually go for a list of options instead of a set plan for every day - it just seems to work out better that way. I haven't bothered at all this week though as I'm picking meals from the freezer every day so I'm just choosing whatever I fancy at the time. I'll be having a takeaway when L is here tomorrow and that will mean leftovers for at least one extra meal, if not two. It's an easy week as far as meal planning goes!ReplyDelete
The list of options works well for me, too. I thought that having a set menu for each day would help me be more organized, but, that doesn't seem to work that well, either, because I keep rearranging the day's meal plans!Delete
Sounds like you have an easy week with your meals this week because you have already done all the work of preparing your meals! Well done with that aspect of meal planning!
I also like having a weekly plan, with options for any day. Ive made daily plans, but never followed them so I stopped bothering! I don't like rice pudding, so I don't think I'd like the milk rice. But Im sure I'd like the seeni sambal and curries you make! Some day I need to make the sambal (auto correct keeps messing with sambal!). CelieReplyDelete
The weekly options seem to work best for me, too, Celie. I don't like rice pudding, either, unless it is kheer, which is Indian rice pudding (Asian Indian), which has cardamom and other flavors. But, I like milk rice, which has a different texture than rice pudding (more solid). Have you ever had Thai sticky rice? It is quite similar to our milk rice, except it is presweetened. If you like spicy food, then, you will like the sambol (don't worry about autocorrect - sambal is the Thai/Indonesian word for sambol and it is the better known word in the West). :)Delete
I do like sticky rice. So I will try milk rice, someday! CelieReplyDelete
It's OK if you don't like it, too. I actually prefer sticky rice to milk rice! :DDelete
These are some good choices for meals.ReplyDelete
I sort of do it this way - in my mind though lol. You are more organized then me having a written plan.
I think about what meals I'm going to make based on what's on sale, what we have in the pantry, what we have that I need to use up, leftovers etc. Then I keep it in my mind as the week progresses.
Thank you, Debra. I find that I tend to forget meal possibilities unless I write things down! This way, it's easier for me to look at the list and then decide what I feel like having. :) All this week's meals are based on what I have on hand; I might go grocery shopping this weekend or even next week.Delete
You have such wonderful varied meals.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lyssa; there will be less variety when I am on my own! I find that I am more inspired to cook when my daughter is home! :DDelete
