Menu Monday 19th September 2011 - The Lean Times


Sep 19, 2011 Menu Monday , , , , , , , 2 Comments

I did not have much office work last week so money is a bit down therefore I am going to try live extra lean this week.  I am working four days this week and a full week next so I need to do some serious planning as I bring my lunch everyday. We are going to eat a lot from the freezer and make extra so I can bring leftovers for lunch.

Monday – Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic with rice, green beans and french bread to soak up the lovely juices

Tuesday – out for the evening  – freezer chili when I get home

Wednesday – Pan fried duck breasts (bought on sale) with Israeli couscous with roast butternut squash and preserved lemon. I will put pomegranate seeds in too. Making extra take for lunch with some rocket.

Thursday – Rocket (arugula) spaghetti with lemon and percorino romano cheese

Friday – cheese burgers with potato latkes and salad – our new quick go to meal. The latkes (small potato cakes) are 2 for 1 at Tesco.

For more menus pop over to OrgJunkie.  Have a great and productive week.

I have written a definitive guide to buying on eBay over at Totally Money.  Come over and have a look.

    Great menu. I would love to try to make the 40 clove garlic chicken sometime!

    You should try it, the garlic comes out very mellow and turns almost into a paste so you can spread it on bread. This recipe is sometimes called Mother In Law’s chicken.
