Menu & Supermarket Adventures


It is that time of the fortnight again. Above is a photo from Flickr Creative Commons (click for all of photostream) of a typical Australian supermarket. My favourite actually, but one very far away from here.

Here are some interesting recipes I came across recently:

Ranch Style Ham & Beans
Sausages with lentils & polenta
sweet plum pork skewers
carrot fritters

I didn't make up a 14 day menu last week, so I have added in the first day.

Wednesday ~ Low fat korma curry
Thursday ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise
Friday ~ salmon zucchini and corn
Saturday ~Mushroom & Pancetta Spaghetti
Sunday ~ Lentil & Chickpea Soup with Chorizo
Monday ~ Singapore-styled Sausage Fried Rice
Tuesday ~ Polish Sausage Bigos
Wednesday ~Pork Schnitzel with Sweet Potato Chips
Thursday ~ tuna and mushroom spaghetti
Friday ~ Red Curry Beef & Bok Choy
Saturday ~ Toad in the Hole
Sunday ~ Spicy Sausage & Bean Hotpot or Sausage Casserole
Monday ~ wombuk salad & BBQ chicken
Tuesday ~ Sausage Rolls & Mashed Potatoes
Wednesday ~ Cauliflower & Bacon Macaroni Cheese

Today I found the ingredients for Mandy's Wombuk Salad. I even bought a carvolo nero plant, sound at least be able to taste it for one meal. I stocked up on kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass in a jar. It is not something you have to buy often. Amazingly, after my pantry challenge last fortnight I spent under what I usually do for food. However, I have a small list for my husband to get at the local shop to make up this menu.

BBQ chicken
sandwich meat cheap
stout or guiness 400-600ml
curly pasta
bacon
vintage cheddar 250g
2 cans lentils
2 leeks
2 zucchinis
parmesan

AWESOME store. The store I shop at....
-the isles aren't near as wide
-the shelves aren't as high
-this store is really clean
-they have such wide carts it's hard to get 2 down the isle at once

Great menu planning.
Oh wow you eat so well ,such yummy dishes...

We don't have any Coles here, and it is a much different experience with wide aisles.

Thanks CC.

I'm flattered that you like my photo, and you're more than welcome to use it -- but it's not Creative Commons just because it's on Flickr. Just FYI.

I will have to make sure the search box I use is on the creative commons page. I used to be able to go straight to it, it is a bit misleading. Thanks for allowing use of the photo this time.
