Both me and the H are foodies – we love trying out new types of food and spend a lot of time making our food from scratch… But at the same time we are not always the most organized people – and end up with a lot of dinners with meat as the main focus point. So we have decided to start planning our food making week by week – to see if it can cut down on food expenses and also make us focus more of our food around vegetables and fruit. Since it is a sea of great food inspiration out there we have sat down and created a list of food for this week… Went on a crazy food shopping spree today – getting all the basics and the not so basics for this week.
This is the list this far:
Snacks and for freezing (so we’ve got something to take out for lunch etc.):
Whole wheat persimmon and ricotta scones – recipe here.
Homemade gnocchi – recipe here:
Then over to the day-to-day list:
Super-eggy scrambled eggs with homemade pesto – recipe here. Made this today – remixed the pesto a bit – and it was insanely tasty!
Roasted butternut penne with homemade pesto – recipe here.
Egg salad sandwich – recipe here.
Lemon salad + salmon – recipe here.
Herb cream cheese scrambled eggs – recipe here.
Mediterranean quinoa bowl – recipe here.
Egg salad sandwich.
Lasagna Bolognese – our own mix-up.
Breakfast panini – recipe here.
Rice noodles + peanut and lime chicken – recipe here. (We might just do it warm)
Whole wheat pancakes with yoghurt and berries – our own mix-up.
Italian pizza – our own mix-up.
Something from earlier in the week…
Glazed beet + carrot salad – recipe here.
Then in between we will have leftovers and whatever we have around the house as lunch and snacks…
I’ll post some images as the week goes by – if the results are what we hope them to be!
