Menu for Five
Our weather is humid, but not too hot to cook on the stove. We are slowly getting used to our new family size, but I think it will be awhile yet.
Tuesday ~ Beef & Broccoli Almond Stirfry
Wednesday ~ Japanese Pancakes
Thursday ~ Impossible Quiche (Chorizo)
Friday ~ Singapore-styled Fried Rice
Saturday ~ Pink Salmon Patties with Zucchini, Corn Cobs & Green Beans
Sunday ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise
Monday ~ Stir Fry Beef & Vegetable Chow Mein
Tuesday ~ Pork Chow Mein Noodles (pork mince)
Wednesday ~ Sausage Casserole (chipolatas)
Thursday ~ Stir Fry Noodles with Pork & Boc Choy (pork mince)
Friday ~ Tacos with Chicken & Beans
Saturday ~ Tuna & Mushroom Spaghetti
Sunday ~ Tuna Casserole
Monday ~ Vegie Patties with Chips
We were supposed to have Vegie Patties last time but made these instead:
Onion Pancakes with Vegetables & Chilli Sauce
The things that went well were the Tomato Onion Salad with Tamarind, definitely a keeper, the Japanese Pancakes were just as delicious with beef strips rather than pork mince, and Pork Chow Mein Noodles (we had them already) are absolutely gorgeous even without the special Chinese wine in the sauce, and with more plain vegetables. They have a similar taste to each other.
We had a mince dish that was a hit too (hamburger). I grew up on savoury mince and I thought is was lovely. Char-grilled Vegetables Savoury Mince with creamed corn rather than corn kernels.
