Le Menu

I'm trying to plan my week's meals in advance on Sunday so that I don't end up spending a mini fortune on unhealthy take-out. Here are my dinner plans for this week:

Monday - Spicy corn on the cob, spinach sauteed with garlic, brown rice & seasoned black beans

Tuesday - Whole wheat cappellini avec fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil & parmigiano reggiano, steamed asparagus

Wednesday - Korean ramen + Momma's kimchi, leftover asparagus

Thursday - Nachos! Made these last night and they were DELISH. Blue tortilla chips, shredded cheddar, shredded jalapeno jack, refried black beans, sliced jalapeno, and corn salsa. Served with guacamole and sour cream. (Especially delicious with a bottle of Mexican coke!)

Friday - Je ne sais pas!

This week is abnormal for me in that I don't have any dinner engagements. Normally I have something or another going on, but since last week was particularly crazy (stuff every night after work), I made it a point to clear out this week. I need some down time, yo.
What are y'all eating this week? Anything particularly scrumptious??

Tonight I threw together some whole wheat penne pasta with fresh spinach and some sauteed zucchini from the garden. Mixed it all up with some pesto — delish! Tomorrow is Thai Chicken Satays with pineapple, coconut lime jasmine rice, and sweet asian style cucumber slaw! Yummy!!

I always feel better and eat healthier when I plan ahead too but sometimes its so hard with everything else going on!

Here's my weekly menu thus far (courtesy of lots of veggies from our CSA share!): Grass-fed ribeye steak + smashed potatoes + beet salad, Chili scallops on bed of mizuma + Thai red lentil soup, Chard frittata (Alice Waters' recipe) + turkey bacon, Kale-aloo + madras lentils, LEFTOVERS - cuz I'm all outta ideas after that!!

Lots and lots of veggies - I need to detox after my insane weekend of eating and drinking too, too much!

I'm a sucker for Indian food, but it can be super-expensive and greasy in restaurants. But the spice pastes like Patak's in the supermarket are incredibly easy to use, and with low-fat plain yogurt in place of cream it is easy to get all those lovely creamy curried sauces without all the usual fat. Throw in a bunch of random vegetables and it's almost as fast as stir-fry. Plus, with frozen naan bread and some cucumber chopped into more yogurt with cilantro for raita, I have a whole meal in less than 20 minutes.
