I shot this video late at night and edited late night as well. Funny story, one of the edits got missed and the video starts with a bang. It’s definitely funny to see the missed edit. You’re welcome to laugh! 🙂
Here I am sharing what I plan during weekday night to prepare for next day cooking. I hope you find it useful.
This week’s menu is quite different from our family’s regular menu for a reason. It’s going to be a loong week and I decided to simplify the already simple menu to survive the week 😉
Where I come from, lentil rice is a staple meal that’s made quite often. None of my little family members like it and I’m finally making it just for me.
Have you guys tried sweet Thai coconut sauce from Costco? It’s my most favorite salad dressing and I’m eating more salad lately just for the dressing.
You guys, mom left already and I’m back to meal planning for the week.
Above is my menu for this week. It makes my cooking so much easier and at least I don’t have to get takeouts on weekday nights.
We bought jackfruit this weekend and I made curry out of the nut today. Not bad for the first attempt.
Tomorrow, I’m making gongura pappu for lunch. It’s going to be my first attempt as well. I have gongura leaves cleaned, washed, and stored in the freezer. It shouldn’t take more than few mins of prep in the morning before I dump everything in the Instantpot for Gongura puppu. Let’s hope it will come out good
Moment of truth:
It’s been few weeks since I did a complete menu planning. The reason being, mom is visiting us and she is taking care of the lunches while I cook dinners. So I have been planning only my dinner plans all the while.
Finally, this week mom wanted me to plan the complete menu as she realized she has to think about what to cook for lunch every morning. She kinda goes back and forth on this. I really don’t want to push her to follow something unless she wants to.
Above is my weekly menu for this week. If this is the first time you’re seeing my menu planning, here are some facts about our menu:
- We eat a lot of roti during weekdays
- We also made a number of changes to the diet such as switching to brown rice completely, early dinners, relatively heavy breakfasts, evening smoothies etc.
- I didn’t include our snacks and smoothies in this menu. I probably will do after my mom leaves. Now that she is here, she has been a great help in handling some of my work
