🥗 MENU What’s for dinner? Flylady Menu planning (new cookbooks)

What’s for dinner this week at Casa Copenhagen? We’re trying out several recipes from a book I found at our local Danish library by a British food writer called Emily Kydd (the English title of the book is Quick + Simple = Delicious). We’ll be adding our own twists to the recipes. If I don’t specify below, our side dishes are usually a fresh veggie platter (tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, broccoli florets, etc) or a spinach salad. Usually we have one evening per week where we use leftovers, eat some simple smørrebrød (Danish rye bread with toppings) or use up what we have left in the fridge. When you’re menu planning, remember to K.I.S.S.! Keep it simple, sweetie!

One night this week I’m meeting my friend, Kathryn, for dinner and while Kathryn and I are out gallivanting the family will be fending for themselves. Probably making biksemad (hash of fried cubed potatoes, beef, onions,), packet mix from the freezer, with fried eggs on top, ketchup and pickled beetroot on the side.

Farmors thai rejer! My DDDMIL (dearly departed Danish mother in law) recipe for Thai prawns which has nothing really to do with Thailand but was a recipe she often made for us when we visited and which is simple and tasty. Here’s how to make it!

Gyoza-balls with coconut rice and wasabi-guacamole (from the Emily Kydd book) My son made this dish for us and we enjoyed it! We always make rice in my beloved rice cooker.

Looking for easy recipes? I have a whole series!

And when you’ve finished dinner? Don’t forget to “close the kitchen” and leave your sink ready for the next time!

Bon appétit!
LLAP!
And may the Danish hygge be with you!
