Meal Plan Monday: Rain!

It's Spring and in the Greater Vancouver Area, Spring means RAIN! and this week is proving that point!
The weather man has called for rain all week.
I like to plan dinners to match the weather, I know it sounds crazy but hear me out. There's nothing worse then BBQ-ing in the rain, or eating hot soup on a hot day. And on the flip side, there is nothing as comforting as a nice warm soup on a cold rainy day, or comfort food on a dreary miserable evening and for those reasons on Sunday nights, I'm surrounded by flyer's, recipe books, and the weather report.

Monday:
Ham and Provolone Cheese Sandwiches, with yogurt, granola and frozen raspberries.
 Stuffed Roasted Chicken: When we truss the chicken we add a couple pieces of Bacon to the top, it keeps the chicken super moist and extra . . . bacon-y. Brussels Sprouts, Carrots and Yams.
Tuesday:
Chicken Salad Sandwiches (using the leftover chicken).
Corn and Red Pepper Chowder (hands down my favorite soup!)

Wednesday:
Salad, with Tuna and a hard boiled Egg.
We call this dinner "IKEA DINNER" we make meatballs, gravy, mashed potatoes, lingenberry sauce (from Ikea) and Carrots.

Thursday:
We make extra meat balls and Lee has Meatball Sandwiches (made with bottled organic tomato sauce).
Chicken Curry, usually Yellow Curry, Curry warms you up more then Soup on a cold day :)

Friday: (the one day this week we might have a tiny amount of sun)
Leftover Curry for Lunch for Lee (Curry taste way better on the second day)
Hoisin Salmon with Bok Choy and Wild Rice.

This week will be a lot of cooking for me, we also ran out of bread this weekend and I swore to myself that I would bake a couple loaves from scratch . . . wish me luck!

Tomorrow's Post is the inspiration behind our new Living Room Chairs and, of course our new Living Room Chairs :)

  3. Ashli,
    you know, this is something Josh and I could do better...let's be honest, do at all. we are very bad at meal planning! We don't really know 'how'...it was a new year resolution and we haven't followed through with it yet...

  5. As a Sweede, I wouldn't call it an IKEA dinner. I would call it just dinner ;) Hands down my favourite dinner!
