Menu plan – 25 August 2020

What’s for dinner this week at Casa Copenhagen? The usual mix of old and new! If I don’t specify vegetables below, we usually serve a salad or a platter of raw fresh vegetables (cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, cauliflower florets, etc) on the side of all our dinners. Remember when menu planning to check your pantry, fridge and freezer to see what you have in hand before you add to the stockpile. Let’s use what we already have and save money!

  • one day of the week is usually leftovers, a frittata/quiche made with any veggies which need using up, or Danish smørrebrød (rye bread open sandwiches with various toppings)
  • straight from the pantry/freezer dinner: IKEA Swedish meatballs with lingonberry jam, mashed potato and flash-fried vegetables (broccoli, carrot, pepper, onion)
  • honey garlic chicken breasts with oven-baked potato wedges and a spinach/tomato salad
  • beef stroganoff (made in the Instant Pot on pressure cooker mode) with tagliatelle
  • Massaman curry (one of our favourites – a mild red Thai/Indian curry) made in the Instant Pot on slowcooker mode with basmati rice and naan bread
  • a good old family favourite: pasta med kødsovs (a.k.a. spaghetti bolognese, pasta with meat sauce) with a mixed salad on the side
  • my husband’s signature dish – creamy baked salmon – only four ingredients (salmon, leeks, carrots, cream)! I did a YouTube video (see below) on how to make it…everyone loves it!

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! And remember to K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple, Sweetie!
