Meal Plan Monday


Curry Night
One of my favourite ways to share food with friends. Everyone brings a dish to share. On the menu tonight:
  • Lamb Samosas
  • Yoghurt & Mint Raita
  • Cashew Butter Chicken
  • Paul's Lamb Kofta in Spicy Tomato Sauce
  • Simple Pilau Rice
  • Gulab Jamon


 Perfect Pasta




Coconut Curry Fish with Steamed Jasmine Rice


Casual (store bought!) Hamburgers on the BBQ


Garlic Roast Lamb with mixed roast vegetables
This recipe is from the Donna Hay Autumn 2013 Magazine


Get Ahead Sunday

  1.  Lunchbox baking. Allow to cool, cut into individual servings and freeze in a large airtight container.
  2. Make the tomato sauce for the Chicken enchiladas on Sunday. When cooled, store in an artight plastic container (or even a large zip-lock bag!). Store for 2-3 days in the fridge or, if you need longer, freeze. Just don't forget to take it out of the freezer the morning you want to have it for dinner!
  3. If you want to make your own pasta, do this on Sunday too. Pasta dough does not keep very well though (the fresh eggs start to turn green! Eeewww!). So allow your noodles to dry a little then freeze in a zip-lock bag or airtight container.

Mmm that roast looks so good! And I love the idea of the curry night! Would be a great way to try different dishes and would be awesome if you share recipes too.
