We’re still winding down to pesach… three more weeks of eating regular stuff, and then a week of chametz-free eating (for those of you just joining us via Menu Planning Monday, chametz is the Hebrew word for leavened foods – passover is in three weeks and at that point all leavened foods must be gone from my kitchen.) I’ve already figured out dinners for the week of passover, but I’m still not sure how much I should be buying for the coming weeks. I’m going to err on the side of under-shopping so that I don’t end up having to throw out a whole lot of stuff. Also, the meal plan may look weird as we start to use up everything in the house.
(is three weeks in advance too soon to stop buying new chametz? when do you all start just depleting the pantry instead of shopping?)
Monday – Chicken and veggie stir-fry over basmati rice
Tuesday – spinach & feta quiche (from the freezer), crusty bread, Israeli salad
Wednesday – tacos (we have tons of canned beans and salsa; might as well get rid of ’em)
Thursday – baked chicken, rice, some kind of veggie
Friday – dinner chez parents
Saturday – pasta with meatless sauce (from the freezer)
Sunday – homemade pizza, bean salad, baby carrots
Monday – moroccan chicken breasts, citrus-nut couscous
Wow. So the only things I really need to buy are chicken breasts and some crusty bread. And produce.
So, what are you eating this week? Still don’t know? Pop over to organizing junkie and see what others have planned!
