M- Honey ginger glazed chicken breasts with steamed cauliflower and carrots
T- Italian seasoned roast pork loin au jus with succotash of onions, zucchini, button mushrooms and tomatoes
W- Vegetarian chili with a fresh garden salad
T- Nasi goreng (using leftover pork loin) made with brown rice and green salad
F-Usually our take-out night so probably ordering stir fry or sushi.

I'm dieting again so everything is made fresh each day. Also no bread allowed.

After Easter and before my holiday in early September, I am in my "summer" mode with lighter meals such as salads and sandwiches.

My main meal of the day is usually lunch unless I go out for an evening meal.

This week's lunch:

M - salad with shredded ham
T - roast pork sandwich with sliced gherkins, rocket and sliced cucumber; plus a few baby plum tomatoes, radishes, sliced bell peppers and grapes on the side
W - shredded ham sandwich with sliced gherkins etc..
T - Avocado and crispy bacon sandwich etc...
F - roast pork sandwish as Tuesday
S - nothing much as I am going out for dinner
S - Ribeye steak with pan-fried mushrooms, oven chips, onion rings and a side salad

My "winter" mode consists of homemade soups, stews, chilli, ragu, curries.

I cook in larger quantity and freeze what I do not eat in tubs, so that I have a selection to choose from during the week.

Typical lunch would be something like this:

M - Soup as I normally make one on Sunday with a couple of slices of bread or toast
T - Chilli with rice and vegetable
W - Pasta with a creamy cheesy mushroom, spinach and chicken sauce
T - More soup and bread/toast
F - Lamb curry with rice and vegetables
S - I usually go out for lunch or dinner, otherwise I may have a take away
S - Steak dinner as before, stir-fried vegetables instead of salad

Grilled meat of some kind
Roasted or steamed veg
Salad
Quinoa or quinoa and rice blend, or sometimes a sweet potato.



I premake meals. I usually make four day's worth of lunches and dinners at one time. This is how I keep myself from eating out three or four days per week. It's boring but it works.

I'm loving dinners now that they're provided by DH's employer, we don't need to cook, and mostly, I don't need to clean. Mostly the last part.

M: seafood spaghetti (squid and shrimp), and turkey breast + asparagus
T: tri tip
W: pan seared ahi tuna and mustard? i think? sauce
Th: german sausages,sauerkraut
F: Korean barbecue ribs, japchae (glass) noodles, kimchi fried rice




I'm getting so fat. I swear, I've gone up a whole ring size in the last month.

This year, I removed a few things, gave a few more options, and now have SIX weeks of meals. I am VERY proud of this as I detest cooking dinner especially because I'm tired and don't want to try to think. :D Here's our six weeks...we are on the Meatloaf week. :D CP is Crock Pot.

I love this! So many different recipes. Cozystiches, I am interested in a couple of the same recipes as already requested.

I have discovered that for pork and chicken I am willing to pay more to have a butcher do a lot of work for me. I love chicken breasts pounded thin with a pan sauce (Marsala, piccata, whatever you like) but HATE HATE HATE the mess it makes. Since it is just DH and I most nights I have the local butcher do this for me. Saves me a lot of prep time. I have realized that long prep time dishes just do not get made in our house often, so I am always trying to cut down prep time. Most dishes we make have actual prep time of 20 minutes or less. Cooking time can be REALLY long. I have no issue with letting things cook for a long time. And I hate the crock pot.


We also have this wonderful brand of Indian Curry sauces here that Costco carries (Maya Kamal). And it makes the easiest dinners with either paneer cubes (buy at Costco as well) or chicken thighs. So I do those pretty often (every couple weeks) as it saves us $$$ from eating out at an Indian restaurant.

Aside from Lasagna and other Italian dishes of that sort (and Mousakka, which is just so much freaking work) DH will not touch casseroles.

I make chili every so often. I love pot roast, but DH doesn't so I discovered braised short ribs (I buy the boneless ones for me and bone in ones for him) make the best pot roast type dish ever and that is our compromise.

You can't tempt him with Osso Bucco or French casseroles like Cassoulet? You can really tell the people who have kids versus those who don't by the menu's above and yeah I am one with a fussy kid and I can't eat wheat so..... :roll:

Haven't really tried. Tried the braised short ribs, had that work, decided to quit while ahead. :lol:

You can tell who has kids and who doesn't. Absolutely.

Dh and I were both raised with very little accommodation for our palates as kids though. We ate what the adults ate or we didn't eat. It made him flexible as an eater (in general) and me the opposite-- I hate people dictating what I can eat and I am a moody eater.

That's why I always have a stocked pantry and fridge so that if I crave something that isn't on the planned menu, I can usually switch with ease to accommodate that.

I have a head of cabbage in the fridge just sitting there because I was planning, ambitiously, to make stuffed cabbage leaves. Well that didn't happen. So now I made something else with the ground chicken and ingredients. Now I have to figure out what to do with the cabbage.

I want to make borsct, but need a good recipe and patience. So I will probably end up roasting it in the oven or grilling it.

Hi PS Friends! I generally make a large batch of something over the weekend, which might be a stew or shredded up chicken that can be put on salad or eaten with tortillas as an example. Then throughout the week, I eat salads for lunch and leftover weekend meals for the evening. I'll usually cook fresh veggies though with the dinner since it is quick.

I just wanted to share as it looks like there are other people out there who like to cook. I started taking culinary classes for fun at a local community college. There isn't Cordon Bleu anymore (went out of business) but I found that it wasn't affordable and you couldn't do it part time. I currently work full time and take 1 class a semester. It's hard work but it's been really fun. Better than those cooking classes at Whole Foods, which teaches you more about the recipe than a general technique. Anyhow, just thought someone else might be interested in it as well!

I cook so much less than I used to. Pretty much only when DH is home and sometimes not even then.

Last night he cooked ribeye steaks (grass fed and finished) roasted cauliflower and grilled zucchini
A couple nights ago I made spaghetti squash with sausage, mushroom, and onion marinara sauce.

Every week I cook a big batch of smoked chicken thigh fillets, some kind of grilled beef, Sabatinos chicken, gouda and artichoke sausages and ground beef with taco seasoning. That is for salads and quick dinners with whatever veggies I have. That is pretty much how I cook any more.

We try to eat healthy during the week, and then the weekends are a shit show (of deliciousness) haha.

M- leftovers/cereal/something small
T - Salad greens from the garden (cooked or raw), chicken breast
W - Roasted veggies, chicken breast
T - Stirfry to use up whatever veggies picked that week, probably chicken breast LOL
F - H cooks. It's his only day off. Something like braised short ribs, pulled pork, brisket, etc. You get the idea. Meat, that cooks a while. Lots of wine.
S - If its nice out bbq. Grilled flank steak w/ chimichurri, roasted veg. Lots of wine. If its not nice out then something inside. Soup, coq au vin, roast.
Sun - Something easy. Maybe a noodle stirfry or just bbq steak + potatoes. Or left overs if thre was lots from sat.

I always crave fish because we eat it so rarely, but its hard to find good fresh fish here :(

We're usually quite boring during the week (as you can tell), and weekends I like to try new recipes. I have an absolute TON of parsley in my garden right now (its literally the size of a small bush!) so I've been making chimichurri and gremolatas like crazy trying to use it up. Sometimes I will just google an ingredient that I have and find an interesting recipe for it. Example, I have a ton of swiss chard, and found a lentil recipe that uses it. So ill try that tonight.

Hey Gypsy (and others as well)! Do ya'll portion it out where you only cook enough for dinner and not have left overs? Or are those left overs being eaten for lunch the next day? I'm sooooo impressed with the ability to eat something different every evening.

I have tried to be better at meal planning. One thing that helps is occasionally doing a Blue Apron week where we get some meals delivered. We don't do this every week since it's kind of expensive, but it's helping me learn new recipes.

M - was terribly tired so we did Chipotle
T - Carbonara made with fusilli
W - Chili, most likely (tonight), or possibly a spinach salad with grilled shrimp
Th - our Blue Apron box arrives, so I will make whatever appeals most from these three: Mexican beef quesadillas, seared chicken and fregola sarda, or seared salmon with miso soba noodle salad.
F - one of the Blue Apron meals
Sat/Sun - we often eat at least one dinner with my parents, or we wing it and do leftovers or sandwiches. I like making what I call "fancy sandwiches" on either ciabatta buns or bagels, with nice cheese, avocado, turkey, spinach, any other veggies we have, plus some kettle chips on the side.

M: Often takeout
T: We do our own thing, I have boxing. So I drink protein shakes.
W: I either cook steak and a side, or we go out, or I figure something out that is low carb. Wing it basically. It varies.
T: Same.
F: Boxing, so either protein shakes or we go out to a late meal that is often breakfasty food.

I USED to cook most weeknights. Since boxing started last Feb, cooking the other nights has been sporadic, and DH has also gotten involved in his own stuff, which means we wing it.

Neither of us are good with leftovers unless it is a soup or something like that. So I do limit the portions to one meal generally.

I love this. I fell far off the meal plan wagon this summer..we have mostly lived out of our garden with meat as an afterthought. I did buy a round of beef to make a pot roast this week (with a chicken alternative for the chicken eater)It's just been too warm to doing anything besides grill and eat summer salads (my excuse). Kids are back to school now so it's time to plan meals again. We have a teen that only eats chicken and fish, so I've been dreading planning.
Last night I made a lobster stew, which the kids fussed about and ate rotisserie chicken instead with cucumbers.
The night before was rice, and chicken and zucchini
The night before that was leftovers from the BBQ we had over the weekend, tomato basil mozzarella skewers, chicken, hot dogs, garden salad and potato salad.
Sadly this is about what we eat. Chicken. Salmon, ground turkey, repeat. That's why I'm pumped about the roast. Veggies are tomato, zucchini, cucumber, eggplant and peppers. .

This is slightly off track in that it's not our week's dinner list, but for anyone looking for quick tasty meals I would highly recommend the Jamie Oliver 30 minute meal book. There was a big trend in the UK a couple of years ago for quick recipe books, I think to try to encourage people to cook from scratch using fresh ingredients rather than buying lots of pre-done, processed food from supermarkets. His sausage cassoulet and chicken pie in particular are really quick and tasty, although admittedly what might take him 30 minutes generally takes me longer!

Nigella Lawson did a similar book called Nigella Express and the chicken cacciatore in there takes about 25 minutes in total (20 of those are cooking time where you don't need to do anything) and is delicious. My husband would also happily sell his soul for her Greek lamb chops, which also take only about 5 minutes prep time then an hour or so in the oven where you don't need any involvement whatsoever - amazing with crusty bread and green salad.

I have children at school and do a lot of running around with them for swimming clubs, music lessons, etc so I rely on a lot of casserole/cassoulet/chilli type dishes that I can cook in the day and just take the time to re-heat and cook some veg to go with them once we're home. I find winter a lot easier in that respect as casseroles generally taste even better re-heated. Summer is harder in our house as neither of my two boys will eat salad leaves, and summer salads look a bit sparse without the leaves!

What is "Cowboy Stew"? I saw a "cheater's recipe" above, but don't know how one would combine the ingredients. Is it like Shepherd's Pie?

ETA: Just reread. See how it is made!

Wow... sounds delicious. I wish I paid more attention to my mom cooking during my childhood days. I never got used to that bitter melon though!
