This was the plan for the first week in October, based on what I had on hand; but, then, I did a grocery pick up on Thursday.
Leftover milkrice, seeni sambol, with chicken curry from the freezer (Monday)✔
Egg salad sandwiches✔
Leftover sauteed chicken and salsa rice✔
Chicken curry and leftover salsa rice✔
Spaghetti with ground turkey (and vegetables - zucchini, carrot, etc.) sauce
How did it work?
Brunch: milkrice, seeni sambol, and chicken curry
Dinner: Leftover sauteed chicken and salsa rice
Brunch: Toast and peanut butter
Dinner: Last of the salsa rice, chicken curry, cucumber slices; cake (from neighbor S for dessert!)
Brunch: Egg salad sandwich
Dinner: Chicken curry, rice, peach chutney
Brunch: Freshly baked frozen Pizza
Dinner: Pan sauteed frozen hamburger patty on bread ends "bun"; fresh mango and chocolate wafers for dessert
Brunch: Egg salad sandwich, banana
Dinner: Mild Italian sausage, corn, broccoli, mango
Dinner: Soup, mango
Dinner: Pizza (compliments of neighbor S) and doughnut!
Well...I had two of the brunches that I had planned and four of the dinners! I'll take that as a success!
Onto October Week 2! The meal plan options are:
Scrambled eggs on toast
Leftover turkey-vegetable soup
Pizza from the freezer
Keema curry made with ground turkey with rice or roti
Or something entirely different!
How is your meal planning coming along?
As we are off to Scotland at the weekend, I want to eat up all tye fresh stuff. I cooked a large chicken on Saturday and that's providing the basis for our meals this week. The carcase went into the slow cooker and has made a rich stock for soup.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a very good plan to me, Angela. One large chicken can provide lots of meals. :)Delete
Your plan was a success and you ate what you felt like eating on the day, sort of what I do so don't make a plan for the week.ReplyDelete
Yes, I did eat what I felt like eating on each given day, but, sometimes, the leftovers dictate what I eat during the week! And this week, the leftovers say I must finish the turkey soup! :DDelete
In short, not very well :) Although I do have a delicious curry in the slow cooker, all ready for when I finish work this evening. I must remember to put together a plan later. XReplyDelete
I like the idea of your slow cooker curry. Hope the rest of the week's meals will be easy to plan and prepare. :)Delete
I don't see food from S in your plan. :)ReplyDelete
LOL, mustn't count on it, June, but, between you and me, there might be some home-dipped chocolate covered strawberries coming my way, later, today! :DDelete
Thank you, Regine. :)Delete
Oh my goodness, your meal plan just reminded me that I have a stockpot with turkey remains down in the old fridge in the basement, and I have to deal with it, taking off the meat and throwing out the bones and skin and making soup with the stock and meat! Turkeys seem to go on forever and ever, but at least I did get as far as taking off the rest of the meat and simmering the bones.ReplyDelete
As long as the turkey remains are in the fridge, it should be fine for a day or two, Bushlady. :) I'm enjoying my turkey and vegetable soup. :)Delete
I started on a meal plan but got distracted so need to get back to it! There's enough in the freezer to keep me going so I'm not too worried.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you can wait for a week or so to get back to meal planning. :)Delete
I like the "something entirely different" category. You can't be off plan with that as an option.ReplyDelete
Keema curry is new to me - I had to look that up and I see it is a ground meet curry. It sounds very good.
Ha, ha, I thought it was a good category to add to the meal plan! :D I like keema curry - you make it with any type of ground meat (or, even a vegetarian version, if preferred). It's a good way to stretch ground meat! :)Delete
