Weekly Meal Plan: Week 11
Continuing with my new mission, which is to share with you every weekend, our family’s Weekly Meal Plan. I will post a dinner recipe idea for Monday through to Friday and will suggest some possible week-end meals and throw in a few breakfast, snack, or dessert ideas too! I hope you will find these posts helpful and feel free to mix things up if you like. You don’t have to make every single recipe…or on the exact day. I certainly don’t! I’m often swapping days around depending on circumstances. For example, you may want to make Monday’s recipe on Friday, or you may only want to make one of the recipes during the week, that’s cool – the weekly meal plan is a guide not a rule!
I would love to know if anyone followed any of the suggested recipes and if you have any mid-week meal suggestions of your own. Please use the comments box below.
Happy cooking! gx
Monday: For Meat Free Monday this week we will be making these Easy Falafel Burgers with Pita Bread. I will probably opt for store bought pitas’ today as I’ll have too many things to catch up on after a week away.
Tuesday: Leftover Chicken Pie – Hopefully some of you had a roast chicken meal over the weekend and will have some leftovers. If so, this will be easy for you! By the way, did you know last week was British Pie Week?
Wednesday: Korean Short Ribs – This recipe is delicious, make sure you buy the short ribs cut and the Korean pear is more commonly referred to in Hong Kong as Asian pear. Serve with your favourite Chinese greens and rice.
Friday: Hairy Bikers Fish Pie – Fish for Friday! Keeping my fingers crossed it won’t be too hard to find smoked haddock this week. Unfortunately, it’s not always readily available in Hong Kong and you really can’t make a fish pie without the smoked haddock. If you cannot find it in your local supermarket then Oliver’s or City Super usually stock it.
At the weekend:
Get some baking done! This chocolate brownie recipe by Nigella Lawson is my go to brownie recipe. I make them several times a year. The recipe yields 35-40 little squares – they are so rich that all you need are little squares! They also freeze well, so I freeze half the batch and periodically put them into the kids packed lunches straight from the freezer – by lunch time they are thoroughly defrosted and ready to eat. Happy kids!
