Of course, there is no Asian market in our tiny town. So once in a while, when Papa the Farmer goes into Dallas for a handyman job, he comes home with a variety of foods that appealed to him. Since he doesn’t usually know that he’ll be stopping at the Asian Market, he doesn’t ever go with a list, That means we just never know what he’s going to come home with!
Last night he came home with this:
The trick is to plan my meals around what he brought home. If I can do that, I will avoid having to go the grocery store, which involves a full day’s outing and a lot of buckling and unbuckling Little Farmhands in their carseats…
Of course, every day we’ll be having salad before our cooked food. This week, looks like we’ll be eating a lot of bok choy and beansprouts! Mmmm!
This week’s themes will revolve around various countires. Since we have so much Asian food in the house, we’ll be having Chinese food twice this week!
Sunday – Brazilian
Monday – Chinese
Tuesday – Italian
Wednesday – Mexican
Thursday – French
Friday – Chinese
Saturday – Leftovers
One of the items I am really excited to try is this:
(Too bad the instructions on the package are in Chineese…)
Menu Plan Monday is the brain-child of Laura at “I'm an Organized Junkie.” Each week she posts her own menu plan and LOTS of other bloggers link their weekly menus to hers. Click here to check it out! Most of the menus are not vegan or gluten free but some are so there are plenty of ideas for everyone!
