what's for dinner, week 44

what we had for dinner, week 43

Monday: (my birthday) pan fried salmon, blanched asparagus and homemade hollandaise sauce (it was absolutely perfect, the it split - aaargh!)
Tuesday: a salad made of leftover chicken from Sunday, brown/wild rice, cantaloupe melon, pineapple, spring onion, green bell pepper, fresh coriander and sweet chili sauce 
Wednesday: (Sara's birthday) a salad made of beef, tomatoes, red onion and kale pesto 
Thursday: baked salmon and apple avocado salad 
Friday: my very sporty family - Sølve, sister Mari, brother-in-law Hallvard and dad - are running half marathon Saturday morning, so they have ordered pasta for dinner

What we actually had for dinner last week (pictured above):

Monday: Sunday leftovers pasta bolognese 
Tuesday: something from the freezer; homemade soup (red lentil or broccoli/kale) or homemade pizza pasta bolognese leftovers 
Wednesday: (in my hotel room at Stord) ham and cheese sandwiches 
Thursday: a scrumptious four course seafood meal at Brygga 11
Friday: homemade pizza (from the freezer)
Saturday: (Sølve's birthday) steak, roasted potato wedges and homemade aioli

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
