Every Monday I link up with Menu Plan Monday at The Organising Junkie. Because I don’t actively menu plan, I found that posting the plan retrospectively works for me. So my menu plans involve what I ate over the last week.
This week I had a bit more time, and so could experiment with some new recipes, including grilling lamb chops (instead of taking the easy option of slow-cooking) and making butter chicken, which I’d never had before but liked.
I also finally made kale pesto, and have a lot of it. I expect it to feature heavily in this week’s meals.
Tuesday – Butter chicken (based on this recipe) made with tandoori chicken, zucchini and red capsicum (above).
Wednesday – Grilled lamb chops with grilled zucchini, red capsicum and red onion and a baked potato topped with sour cream.
Friday – Fish and chips out with friends to celebrate a friend’s thesis review.
Saturday – By the time I got home after the election I was too tired to cook, but ate some homemade chocolate mousse.
Sunday – Grilled lamb chops with kale pesto, lacto-fermented ginger carrots and lacto-fermented garlic. I was getting a nasty cold to tried to bump up my immunity with the garlic and carrots.
What was on your menu last week?
