I sat down this weekend with a new to me cookbook and pulled out four new to me recipes. I tend to pick out 4 meals that are for sure and then the other 3 days fall back on basics like eggs or easy sandwiches or leftovers, so my menu plan is only for four nights. I also don't decide which meal is for which might until I go to cook, and see how my day went.
Here's the four things we are going to try this week, all of them are from the cookbook A Flash in the Pan: Fast, Fabulous Recipes in a Single Skillet.
Chicken with sweet peppers and balsamic vinegar (p. 18) with noodles.
Red Curry chicken saute with coconut and lime (p.27) with Jasmine rice.
Salt and Pepper Cube steaks with smoky red onion (p.71) with mashed potatoes.
Tunisian eggplant and chickpea ragout (p. 150) with couscous, I think.
I'd love to see how you plan your meals for the week, if you do. Don't worry about it being on Monday or fully fleshed out, just let me know what you're thinking about making.
