what's for dinner, week 5/2013

the first course of the fantastic Saturday dinner at our friends' place 

Monday: what ever is in the fridge pureed vegetable soup (squash, leek, celery, parsley root, parsnip, garlic, fresh parsley, a tiny bit of chorizo, creme fraiche, stock cubes, black pepper and ground cumin)
Tuesday: chicken tortilla soup (one of the first dinners I learnt to make - I will post the recipe soon)
Wednesday: pan fried cod filets, spinach and chickpeas (side dish inspired by the recipe on page 34 in this Rema 1000 leaflet)
Thursday: beef stir fry
Friday: salmon sashimi

What we actually had for dinner last week:

Monday: a salad made of chicken leftovers from Sunday + mixed lettuce, mango, red onion, snap peas, sweet chili sauce and rice
Tuesday: vegetable soup salad leftovers from Monday in tortillas
Wednesday: white beans, tomato and feta salad pasta bolognese
Thursday (at my parents' place): this cusk dish
Friday (at my parents' place): fresh shrimp sandwiches
Saturday (at our friends' place): a fantastic four course dinner with tuna, mojito granita, duck and an ice cream kind of dessert + Champagne, of course!
Sunday: homemade meatballs, roasted potato wedges and store bought fresh tortellini filled with spinach and ricotta

about this project

- every Monday I post the week's menu
- I also post what we actually had for dinner the passed week (because it is fun to see if we actually followed the plan)
- there might be links to recipes, but the menu will mostly just be basic ideas for the dinners
- Saturday and Sunday dinners will often not be planned ahead because we have a habit of buying whatever looks good in the store when we are out grocery shopping Saturday morning
- each post will be illustrated with one of my food related photos, either from my archives or a new one
