meal plan mondays: 25 – 30 june 2012

as an inaugural post, i decided to put up my meal plan for the week. i generally use mondays to compile a list of recipes i would like to try as well as a grocery list since (at least as of now) i have mondays off from work.

this is what my plan for this week looks like:

monday - chicken adobo & roasted greens with beets & garlic 

tuesday - slow cooked rump roast (crock pot!) with sauteed veggies + baked sweet potato

wednesday - citrus-mango spicy tilapia & kale

thursday - 5-spice slow cooker ribs with roasted zucchini fries*

friday - pakistani kima - i haven’t tried this before but am thinking it would be tastiest with lamb. i’ll let you know how it turns out!

saturday - out to dinner to celebrate my glorious return from natty guard training? olde pink house, i’m looking at you!

as you all can see, i am still at the paleo stage where i copy other people’s recipes rather than make my own. until i progress to that level of mastery, i will continue thieving from my favorites (sarah at everydaypaleo, julie at paleomg!, melissa at clothesmakethegirl, etc.) and linking to their pages for each recipe.

*that being said, i do have a decent recipe for roasted zucchini (or any other veggie) fries! 1) cut your veggie of choice into strips resembling fries, 2) toss “fries” with oil of choice (i prefer coconut) & spread in an even layer on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, 3) sprinkle seasoning of choice (i like old bay, but any combo works!) over the entire sheet, 4) roast at 450 for ~ 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown, turning halfway thru. be careful not to over-oil or you may end up with a sad soggy mess like i did the first time i tried this out.

what does your menu for the week look like?
