or at least me and DH liked it. The kids less so.
Had a hilarious attempt at baking soda bread to go with it. I forgot to put in the baking soda, and it looked like a brick.
I’m trying to eat less bread, but I was impressed by the bread on Masterchef. So I thought I’d have a go, epic fail. Hilarious. Made me laugh anyway 1 month ago
and DH even took leftover pasta in to the office for lunch.
Looked very professional in plastic takeaway containers (from the Chinese).
Side issue – am I turning into my mother, she has an outrageous plastics cupboard, of all descriptions.1 month ago
They save fuel and cut down on cooking time.
DH always buys himself expensive toys, so he’s taken a look into it, and the answer is of course to buy a really got cooker. The Swiss ones look good.
They’re not crazy money, but if you buy a decent pot, I suspect you’ll use it for years. 2 months ago
But I will settle for not wasting any food.
Tonight I cooked enough Spaghetti Bolognaise for three more meals and froze the rest. 2 months ago
I write on it what we’re having for the week as I order my groceries for the week online. Best way for me. I tried doing it on my cell phone, but that wasn’t as good as the “in your face” white board way. 3 months ago
planning a few days in advance. That gives me a loose plan that I can be flexible with. BUT this loose planning has me running to the grocery store more often than I like. I’d like to plan a whole week in advance, do one big shop a week plus a smaller trip to the farmer’s market or whole foods and that’s it!
Minestrone & quesadillas
Brown rice & bean burritos
Mushroom burgers with rolls & salad
Fish & veggies & bread from the farmer’s market Thurs
Homemade pizza or calzones with veggies from farmer’s market Fri
Leftover night or if its all gone, then Dinner out!!!
Muffins: zucchini chocolate chip
Dessert/treat for the week: Mocha brownies
Sunday appetizer night: layered dip, homemade potstickers, apple crisp & vanilla ice cream 8 months ago
I think I really need to buckle down on this goal. I have let myself slip away from this goal. I will occasionally plan our meals in advance for a few days but I’d like to do this for an entire month. I would also like to mix it up a bit and not include so many of the same recipes..I tend to do that a lot. I did actually do this goal back in November last year but I did not stick with it like I want to. Now is the perfect time for me to start working on this again. I have an unfinished chart on Excel that I will attempt to finish so we can use it for March. I think if I had a menu like this every month it would save me a lot of time and money on fast/already prepared foods. Time to get started! 14 months ago
Now I just have to stick with it. I find myself grabbing a salad/wrap that is already pre-made when I am out and about instead of waiting to come home to eat. I’ve done this a few times since I’ve made the “menu”. 18 months ago
of all organic brands that I buy and favourite veggies/fruits. I also compiled most of my recipes for the menu. This will help me mix it up so that there is a wide variety for the month. 19 months ago
with Microsoft Excel. I downloaded a template for a meal planner/calendar. I have started on it for the next few weeks starting with next week. If I have some free time tomorrow I will work on a meal plan for the entire month of November. 19 months ago
