Meal Plan for the Week

July 30th, 2013 at 09:58 am

The plan is to use up what is in the pantry and fridge. I am vegetarian. D eats chicken everyday - he cooks it in the most basic way possible - he just roasts it! Sometimes, I go crazy watching him eat chicken the same way over and over, and when he is cooking, I will add some spices or toss in some veggies. He says he likes it when it is cooked like that. But, when he cooks the chicken himself - it's always plain and roasted. Weird how someone who enjoys flavor can so easily forget to toss in a few spices that are on hand!

Here are a few things that we will eat this week (apart from the plain roasted chicken):

* Cabbage Stir Fry w. Spiced Rice
* Barley-Lentil-Vegetable Soup
* 7 layer dip
* Cheese Quesadillas
* Zucchini Stir Fry w. Rice
* Coconut-Mint Chutney
* Pizza (have signed up for Secret Shop)
* Baked Potatoes
* Salads - lots
* Yogurt - lots
* Fruit Salad and ice-cream for dessert

    Yum! Coconut-mint chutney sounds really interesting -- do you make that yourself?

  2. IndianGal Says:

    The mint chutney is really easy to make - I just take a handful of mint, about a 1/4 cup of grated coconut, 2-3 chilli peppers, a big pinch of tamarind pulp, and a dash of salt and grind it up in my Magic Bullet with a splash of water. It's an Indian chutney - and goes well with rice and curry as a condiment on the side. There are no preservatives in it, so it won't keep for more than 2-3 days in the fridge. This amount will serve 2-3 people. If you make it, I hope you like it. :-)

    Ooh, I'll try to remember this the next time we make curry. Smile Is tamarind pulp a dry ingredient? I know we have tamarind concentrate in the fridge, it's kind of a goopy liquid.

  4. IndianGal Says:

    That should work too. Tamarind pulp isn't really dry - it's a bit mushy, but not liquid like the concentrate since there is no added water. Both work. :-)
