Week 3

The mealplans cover groceries and dinner recipes for four days, always for two people. Except on Mondays, when I cook for 3 small children and three adults.

What we ate:

Monday: Pork chops with a combination of carrots and broccoli, and blue cheese cream sauce for the adults.

Tuesday: Grass fed steak with garlic butter and a side of white cabbage, carrots and raisins slaw.

Wednesday: Chicons gratin (or Belgian endives with cheese and ham, browned under the grill).

Thursday, I’ll be meeting up with a business associate who is taking me out for dinner, which means the paleo bolognese I had planned will move over to Friday.

This is my shopping list to cover for these four dinners and more:

  • White cabbage (I still have some in the fridge from last week)
  • Carrots, 2 kilo
  • Raisins
  • Broccoli, 2 heads
  • Zucchini, 3 medium ones
  • Endives, 4 of them
  • Mushrooms, half a kilo
  • Full fat cream
  • Gouda cheese, 4 slices
  • Shredded emmenthaler or gruyere cheese
  • Blue cheese
  • Steak, grass-fed, two of them
  • Quality ham, 4 slices
  • Pork chops, 1 kilo for 3 children and 3 adults
  • Minced beef and pork for the bolognese, I will pick up after work on Friday
  • Red wine
  • I also bought herring, apples, yellow peppers and red beets as a start for this week’s lunches. My better half asked me to provide boxed lunches to take with him to work, and I promised that I would see what I can do….

From the pantry:

Olive oil, parsley, butter, garlic, ground sea salt and ground black pepper.
