I’m pretty excited to participate in Menu Plan Monday. Because we are trying to save money, I am cooking at home more…not such an easy endeavor when we both commute to other states (husband does it five times a week, I do it twice). I’ve got a choir rehearsal on Monday nights, and a night class on Thursday. I’m taking advantage of the fact I have this Tuesday off. 🙂 As the weather gets colder, I get more and more reliant upon my slow-cooker. That takes more planning when you have 6-8 hours of cooking time. This week is rather meat-heavy for us, so I’ll have to plan some vegetarian meals next week.
Menu Plan Monday: My First!Published October 13, 2008 Blog Catalysts & Challenges 2 Comments
Monday – Leftovers OR Curried Shrimp in Coconut Milk; salad (SOURCE: The Cook’s Encyclopedia of Thirty Minute Cooking by Jenni Fleetwood). I couldn’t find yellow curry paste at the store and I don’t have time to make my own, so I am cheating with an equivalent store-bought simmer sauce.
Tuesday – Leftovers or Monday’s meal, depending on how Monday goes.
Wednesday – Hungarian Goulash (SOURCE:Fix-It-and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting With Your Slow Cooker); egg noodles; cabbage. We’ll see how this goes…I’ve had goulash IN Hungary (many times), so I’ll be a tough critic, LOL.
Thursday – I have a late class, so husband and I eat on our own (he’ll probably eat leftover Goulash and I’ll catch a bite to eat downtown…most likely a salad here.
Friday – Go out to eat/take-out
Saturday – I have no idea yet (I plan on Saturdays).
