Menuplan week#6, 2013, with recipe

It`s been a while since I posted last time, and my blog wil definately not be the most updated one. It just has to be that way when you have two boys, one of them with special needs, one husband with his own firm, and so many redecorationideas, homeschooling ideas and selfsufficient ideas in your head at the same time.

But this week I got around and planned a menu. Sooo.

Monday: Lentil and tomatosoup with roasted chickpeas (se recipe down under)
Tuesday: Homemade fishpudding with spinach and shrimps in, served with herbsauce and greens
Wednesday: Mushroom soup with leek
Thursday: Cod with eggbutter and carrot/greens (we are not found of potatoes)
Friday: Wholewheat pasta with tomatosauce and a big green sallad
Saturday: riceporridge (my kids all time favourite) and homemade pizza for the evening.
Sunday: Not planned

My kids loved the octopus and crab sausages from my last blogpost, and this week we are also thinking about making some pig in a blanket for them too.

So for the recipe of Lentil and Tomatosoup with roasted chickpeas

You will need: 
1 can tomatoes (400grams) or you could use fresh
1 onion
250 grams of red lentils
1 liters of vegetable bulion

Dice the onion, fry it untill ligth golden, have all the others ingredients in the pan, and let it simmer for 25 minutes. Add salt and peppers, and herbs to taste. You could also put in chillipepper, but I will leave this out since my boys are not found of hot food.

Roasted Chickpeas
You will need:
Soak 1-2 dl of Chickpeas, or rince and drain one can. Dry them
Add them to a bakingplate, add coockingoil - I will use coconutoil, and spices for your choice. I`ve seen this been done with lots of diferent spices, like the hot chillis, to the mild salt+pepper. We wil probably go for something with garlic and thyme since those are my favourites.

Menuplan monday week #2, 2013

What a lovely week! I am bursting with inspiration to redecorate, organize and fix stuff in the home. I wil have a post about that and the progress in my Simple living Challenge for 2013 up later this week, but today it it monday, and mondays always start with a menuplanner!  I love how this little doing each week keeps me more organized and saves me money.

Menuplan week #2, 2013

Monday: Homemade springrolls with a fresh green salad on the side
Tuesday: Lentilsoup
Wednesday: Salmon Filets over Couscous, served with cucumber sallad
Thursday: Paleo meatballs made of pork, with Zucchini Noodles, and a homemade tomatosauce
Friday: homemade glutenfree fishsticks, fried sweetpotatoes, ketchup, sallad
Saturday: grilled porkmeat, zucchini noodles, marinated mushrooms, and a green sallad
Sunday: Leftovermeat from saturday in a homemade stew, served with veggies and brown rice

As I look over it, I actually have almost everything, and thing I will only spend about 10 dollars in the store this week. Maybee I`ll need to stock up on more sallad-stuff, but the rest I have. Nice to know!

If you want to take a look at the recipe I wil use, you can take a look at my Menuplan Monday pinboard at Pinterest.

Will make something exiting for my kids lunchboxes this week too. I tend to make them sausages octopus once in a while, but this time I wil try with crabs too. So cute :)
