meal planning monday.

it's been a while! and it's not that i've not been meal planning... i just haven't been posting (meal plans or anything really at all...)

but i'm back! with some inspiration from this gal!

no christmas dinners this week (i think i might still be recovering from this plateful to be honest, so much christmassy food!)

tonight, we had meatballs with spaghetti. i had some pork mince leftover from a meal i never got around to last week (thanks to an unforeseen moving expedition... 40 degree days and moving do NOT mix. fyi), so i whipped them up into some meatballs, made a tomatoey sauce and chucked it over some pasta. i have much to learn about meatball making... they weren't great...

tomorrow night, i'm intending to cook up some steaks, fresh from the butcher, with a mountain of salad.

for wednesday, i've got some chicken, oh and there's some satay sauce in the freezer. satay chicken with hokkien and garden fresh snow peas? don't mind if i do!

thursday night, i'll grab some of the many containers of delicious bolognaise sauce, out of the freezer, and put some pasta on. easy. delicious. slowly emptying out our overflowing freezer. ticks all of the boxes ;)

friday. i'll get to using one of the spice mixes bb's mum gifted us from christmas and whip up a green chicken curry. can't wait!

saturday night is burger night. i watched an old episode of american masterchef last week and they made these super delicious burgers at a truck stop. that'll be happening over here on saturday night. yeeha!

and sunday, well i think sunday calls for a roast. maybe lamb? it's been a while...

what are you cooking this week?

I'm vegetarian so no meat for me. I make lots and lots of soups! And tonight had a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, carrots, chickpeas and feta cheese with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and garlic powder. Yummy! Have been making spicy pita chips every day, too. Nice to have something crunchy. Have a good week. Tammy
