Yesterday was less than ideal, in terms of avoiding eating out. We met a former colleague of CodeMonkey's for lunch, and met my parents, who were in town for dinner. So that's 4 of 42 meals this week eaten out. I didn't pack CodeMonkey lunch today. Make that 5/42.
Menus for the week:
M: Chicken soup, chicken chow mein, stir fried string beans
T: Miso soup, salmon teriyaki, rice, broccoli
W: Lhaksa over rice noodles with chicken and hard boiled eggs
T: Chicken soup, chicken stir fried with string beans, broccoli, rice
F: Cheese tortellini with pesto, chicken and broccoli
S: Paneer or chicken tikka masala, naan
Coconut milk for Lhaksa
Lhaksa spice packet
Spices for tikka masala
The Indian food is a new cooking project for me; I've never cooked Indian before. We had fantastic cinnamon ice cream this weekend at Serendipity 3 and we were thinking of making some this weekend, so we might have that with Saturday dinner.
