Still shopping our cupboards/freezer/fridge! Menu plan – 12 January 2022

Happy Wednesday! We’re still working through what we have in our fridge/freezer/pantry this month and only buying absolute necessities like ryebread and milk. Woo hoo, love to have a good clearout and save money, said the Canny Scot! Here’s what’s on the menu this week at Casa Copenhagen!

  • pork stroganoff and pasta made in the Instant Pot (I’m trying out “all in one pot” recipes)
  • Danish biksemad (readymade frozen hash of potatoes, onion, meat) fried up and topped with a fried egg. Cold, pickled beetroot and a skoosh of ketchup or HP brown sauce on the side
  • roast chicken with baked potatoes, carrots and courgette (all in one dish in the oven)
  • chicken salad using up the leftover chicken
  • out to dinner with my good friend Kathryn (from New Zealand), woo hoo, so hubby is fending for himself
  • Danish suppe which is Danish meatball, dumpling and carrot soup, served with warm bread rolls (my easy peasy recipe for those is here )
  • as was the case before both of our kids moved out into their own flats, one day of the week for us is usually leftovers, a frittata/quiche made with any veggies which need using up, risotto or Danish smørrebrød (rye bread open sandwiches with various toppings) or the very occasional takeaway
  • and the other day my daughter – who left home and moved into your own flat in the centre of the city a few months ago – asked me if I had a recipe for Svensk Pølsegryde because she wanted to make it. I said, not only do I have a good recipe, I’ve made a YouTube video about it! LOL! So, in her honour, here’s the super simple recipe. Ready in about 10 minutes!

Have you planned your menu for the week? Remember to K.I.S.S. – Keep it simple, Sweetie! And remember when you’re planning your menu this week to plan a little bit of fun for yourself and your family!

LLAP! Hugs! Diane
