what's for dinner, week 43

what we had for dinner, week 42

Monday: Sunday leftovers 
Tuesday: something from the freezer; homemade soup (red lentil or broccoli/kale) or homemade pizza

I'm off for work and studies the rest of the week, so Sølve will have to make dinner all by himself.

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 - often just based on what ever is in our fridge, freezer and cupboards
- 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

I always wonder, does anyone find these dinner menus/dinner ideas useful at all? They are at least very useful for myself. I find that we eat a lot better when we plan dinners ahead. By the way, I planning to share some thoughts on dinner planning and grocery shopping. Hopefully soon...
