Weekly Meal Planning-- what's on your list this week?
« on: November 04, 2017, 11:37:36 PM »
I am feeling less than inspired lately so thought maybe it'd be fun to share our weekly meal plans. Anyone wanna play?

This week I have planned so far:
Chili Bar featuring this chili: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/01/best-vegetarian-bean-chile-recipe.html

Panang curry: I do kind of a riff on this one but I used jarred curry paste and do my own veggie combo https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/panang-vegetable-curry-367766

Mexican salad: a riff off this recipe https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/mexican-chopped-salad-with-honey-lime-dressing-230154

Vietnamese Salad Roll Salad: this one I just make up as I go.

Then probably either a stirfry, taco salad, or ranchero eggs... but I'm not sure yet. I usually plan 3-4 meals and add as necessary.

I cleaned out the fridge freezer yesterday.  made two big things of chicken noodle soup from the stock and frozen chicken I found.  froze one, other for eating.

today I'm roasting a chicken for tonight so that will be good for another meal/lunches. 

chili at some point.

bacon and eggs.

pasta.

maybe homemade pizza.

It's hard to balance health with picky kids! :D

I made a batch of curry sauce tonight (from my friend's spice packet) but only used half of it on some shrimp so later this week will be some kind of curry over cauli rice.  I also baked a paleo stuffing and there's enough leftover to eat with a protein maybe tomorrow night.  And I have ahi tuna thawing in the fridge, probably for salad nicoise on Tuesday night.

Kenyan will be out on Monday so I'm going to make a batch of funeral potatoes for dinner that night and lunches the rest of the week. I'm also planning to try this Honey Bourbon Chicken to see how we like it. I'm looking for freezer meals that I can assemble in advance and cook from frozen in the Instant Pot, and this would fit the bill. We'll probably also have tacos and spaghetti this week.

tonight: leftover boeuf bourguignon
later in the week: the end of the beef in a hash or perhaps with tortillas or arepas, indian-spiced cauliflower soup with toasted walnuts, mackerel with horseradish something, veg chili or curry depending whether we soak chickpeas or black beans

Quick notes, start the potatoes for a good ten minutes first, then add chicken, then green beans. There is no need to use that much butter.

recipes please?


the cauliflower soup I cooked from memory (so, imprecisely) from a lost cookbook... but this looks similar: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/indian-spiced-cauliflower-soup-2/944e2f2c-0453-46c8-9228-17ff13a5b1c2 except no coconut milk... also a couple handfuls of walnuts sauteed with the onion and cooked in the soup plus another handful toasted and tossed hot with garam masala and used as a garnish


the mackerel plan is still very conceptual... we have some whole mackerel in the freezer and yesterday I dug up and processed our horseradish... we've gotten as far as deciding we should do something with mackerel and horseradish...  :d  I suspect we will grill the mackerel and serve with roast beets and a horseradish cream sauce (i.e. some of the grated horseradish currently sitting in vinegar, mixed with cream or creme fraiche)

Italian sausage roasted with broccoli rabe and grapes

Some sort of chicken thigh dish

Pork loin with apples of some sort

These last two are just in their planning stages!   :D

omg - i made this last night and it was DELICIOUS.

https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1012849-sauteed-chicken-breasts-with-tarragon

i served it with mashed parsnips.

edit: make twice the amount of sauce - i did so in order to spoon it over the parsnips.

How it actually turned out:
Mon - leftover boeuf bourguignon
Tue - split pea dal
Wed - great big spinach salad
Thu - the end of the boeuf bourguignon in sandwiches, w/cucumber & red onion salad
Fri - cumin-crusted pork chop w/ smokey polenta and salsa fresco
Sat - steamed cod & spinach on fried leftover polenta
