12/30 Menu Planning
I guess it is that time of year, time for the sickies to hit! Last Winter brought just about every possible illness with me doing clinical rotations in pediatrics and a toddler in multiple activities, no one was spared! So far we have been luckier this year, until now! I think this is the first time all three of us have been hit this hard at the same time and it is awful! But I think (hope) we are on the road to health. Last week was not too fun, lots of time sleeping and I think we had our first real meal last night.
Menu planning this week will be a lot of recycling from last week since we had a lot of soup and toast, linking up with Jill and Laura.
Sunday: Pad Thai
Monday: Butternut Squash White Bean Risotto & Tiramisu
Tuesday: Coconut curry veggie rice
Wednesday: Lasagna (leftovers frozen from Christmas dinner)
Thursday: Chipotle Squash Mac N Cheese
Friday: ?? Dinner out
Saturday: 4 bean quinoa chili & corn muffins
2 tbsp tamarind paste
1 tbsp. palm sugar
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp. rice vinegar
Chili Flakes to taste (or omit)
2 cups shredded veggies
1-2 eggs or 8 oz tofu
1 pkg rice noodles
2 green onions diced
In hot pan add tamarind, sugar, lime juice and vinegar and cook until dissolved, add chili if desired. Add in shredded veggies and onions until soft, push aside and scramble egg(s)or tofu. Meanwhile cook rice noodles according to package. Add noodles to pan toss to cover with veggies and sauce. Top with nuts and serve.
Now for the other aspect that didn't go as planned last week; workouts! I was so happy to be back out for a run (very slow) yesterday, it was nice even though I coughed through much of it. I needed this even though it was not what I had planned for this week, it mentally made me feel great.
