We’ve never been much into planning weekly menus. But a month ago we decided to give it a serious try. Every Sunday morning after breakfast I look through my cookbooks and browse the net for inspiration. After discussing back and forth with my husband we decide the meals for the coming week. A grocery list is written and then we go grocery shopping.
I have to say that so far we’re sticking to the plan pretty well. It’s great to only have to go shopping once a week, in some periods we’ve been planning for only 1-3 days ahead and that was quite stressful and time consuming since we had to shop quite often. To make it more fun we’ve bought a blackboard and a liquid chalk pen so we can put the menu on display. I want to believe that it actually helps us to stick to the planned menu and it makes you look forward to the meals as it reminds you every time you pass by.
This week we’re eating:
Mon: Spicy lamb patties in pita bread with salad and yoghurt.
Tue: Tom Ka Ga with duck ( with roasted duck left overs from Sunday).
Wed: Spicy chorizo potatoes with fried egg.
Thu: Homemade pasta with tomato sauce.
Fri: Take out.
Sat: Chicken skewers with amazing satay sauce.
Sun: Teriyaki Salmon. Polish apple pancakes (racuchy z jablkami) for dessert.
