We’re deep into winter now and I finally think I’ve adjusted. I’ve got the right amount of blankets on my bed. I know how to get the house warm super quick, and have red wine and a list of great shows on hand for when it’s too miserable to head outside. plus, I’ve got a decent list of winter favourites I’m rotating.
This weekend has been so crisp, sunny days becoming cold nights and I just don’t know why I’m never prepared for this level of winter. Every year I’m all like, ‘I don’t remember it being this cold last year’, when clearly it was. And for al of you that live in places that are actually cold. I’m only talking single digits celsius that I’m struggling with. There’s no snow or actual cold. Just me dressing inappropriately, as a fairly constant state of affairs. But man is it making me crave hot food for every meal.
This weeks meal plans are continuing along that waste less theme. The recipes have cross over ingredients but different flavour profiles and should leave you with enough for lunches if there’s just 2 of you! This is how I cook at home, using ingredients form one recipe to create the rest.
This weeks meal plans have arrived and they’re delightful! I’ve included notes on how to cut down on waste by adjusting the recipes, such as using green cabbage for both recipes that call for cabbage this week. I’m all for adapting recipes to suit your needs, and the contents of your fridge.
This week has been a fun one in the kitchen, with delicious cakes, yummy curries and even more things to come next week. The meal plans this week definitely reflect this as well as my continuous push to wasting less food and using similar ingredients across the week, but don’t worry this doesn’t mean everything will taste the same!
Braised things, broths, immune boosting flavours that’s what I’ve got planned for you this week! I’ve been in Queensland this weekend so didn’t get this finished for this morning – sorry!
This week has been full of fun things with some great new recipe son the blog, naturally I’ll be including them in this weeks meal plans! One of them is my favourite thing I’ve made in a long time because it uses one of my favourite ingredients… noodles!
Week 20? How did that happen?! I guess how it always happens with the whole world turning time passing thing… Well this week I’m staying on that quick and comforting food cos it’s getting a little chilly in Melbourne. I hope you like the ideas, and there’s other good news…
