Meals during daughter's last week at home evolved around leftover Thai food (it lasted practically all week!) and some of daughter's favorite homecooked meals: chicken curry and parathas (Thursday dinner), salmon with rice and broccoli (Friday), shrimp curry, chard, and rice (Saturday). Leftover chicken curry, salmon, and shrimp curry were frozen and sent with daughter. On Sunday (yesterday), I finished the last of the Thai leftovers (fried rice), and had the fish, rice pilaf, and cabbage slaw that neighbor S brought over for my dinner.
Today, I cleaned the fridge; I am sorry to say that I had to toss out a few things including some produce that had spoiled before I could cook them, but the fridge is now nicely cleaned and organized. Then, I did my meal plan for this week, based on the leftovers I still have!
Brunch - Leftovers from Easter dinner - rice pilaf, fried fish, cabbage slaw
Dinner - Leftover chicken curry with lavash bread (a bit of Sri Lankan/Armenian fusion cuisine!)
Brunch - Egg salad sandwiches (using the Easter eggs)
Dinner - Leftover fried fish, corn, cabbage slaw

Dinner - Chicken fried rice (leftover sauteed chicken, leftover rice)

Brunch - Pancakes
Dinner - Soup? According to the weather forecast, it is supposed to be cold and rainy!
Brunch - Leftover pancakes
Dinner - Leftover soup

At least, that is the plan and plans are always subject to change!
