All Out of Lentils

Pantry, Green Gables Home, Prince Edward Island, Canada


This picture is called Pantry, Green Gables Home, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Monday sees some left over bacon that we made into soup Cabbage, Bacon & Potato Soup

A bit rough this menu, but also a pantry challenge. We had some things left over from last week, which is amazing really. Probably something to do with the gifted turkey and having left overs again after going back to a five person family this Monday after our son went back to the city after his break. I may buy mince and small amount of steak for the Japanese pancakes and the canned corn, eggs and ham, or go through the menu again and fine tune it.

Tuesday ~ Tuna Casserole
Wednesday ~ Left-overs
Thursday ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise
Friday ~ Mince Chow Mein
Saturday ~ Possibly Mediterranean Grilled Polenta with fish & salad
Sunday ~ Red Onion & Green Pea Fritters with Braised Beans needs fresh tomatoes & lemon juice or wombuk salad
Monday ~ Japanese Pancakes (uses cabbage)
Tuesday ~ Cabbage with Split Peas if not having chow mein and Japanese pancakes or Spaghetti with Tuna Sauce
Wednesday ~ Mushroom & Caper Pasta
Thursday ~ Mung Bean and Vegetable Soup
Friday ~ Tomato & Borlotti Bean Soup
Saturday ~ Possibly Noodle Omelettes uses canned corn, eggs & 100g ham or cauliflower
Sunday ~ Lucy's Adzuki Croquettes & Spicy Sesame Sauce
Monday ~ Spicy Azuki Bean Risotto

Swap recipes: Greek Bean & Silverbeet Stew
Italian Vegetable and White Bean Soup

Have tabouli mix for salad if we have a tomato in the garden.
