I went grocery shopping yesterday, and even though I spent what seems like an exorbitant amount of money at the grocery store (is it just me or is food getting really expensive?) I got a lot of inexpensive and healthy food for the next two weeks. As ever, I planned our menus after I went shopping. Here’s what we’re going to eat for dinner over the next two weeks (lunches are leftovers).
- Spaghetti with spinach tomato sauce
- ‘Asian’ noodles with chicken and julienned vegetables (I use spaghetti, and cooked the julienned veggies with it. Then I toss the drained noodles with soy sauce, and a bit of peanut butter, and add the cooked chicken.)
- Chicken in molÃ© sauce, over corn and red pepper cornbread
- Baked salmon, with rice and peas
- Chicken noodle soup (there’s a lot of chicken on the menu because I got a good deal on two whole chickens. I’m roasting them in the crockpot and will use the meat for a variety of dishes.)
- Rice and Beans
- Vegetable soup, with cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, potatoes etc
- Zucchini in peanut sauce, served over sticky rice
- Quenelles Luckily I can find them already prepared- if I had to make them myself, I would never cook them!
- Hamburger patties with homemade coleslaw and potato salad
- Tuna noodle casserole
- Baked salmon patties, using leftover potato salad for filler
- Potato leek pie, with homemade tomato soup
- Veggie curry and fake samosas
What’s on your menu for dinner?
