This next week and the one following are a bit odd. My mom is an assistant manager for an off campus college bookstore and this is one of their busiest times (Spring semester starts next week). So, the meals are either just for myself or things I can make extra of for her to reheat for dinner.

So next week's meal are:

Monday: Patty Melts and Baked Seasoned Fries (carried over from this week because I won't be home tomorrow night)

Wednesday: Blackened Fish Sandwiches with tzatziki and some sort of vegetable (whatever looks good in the freezer section)

Friday: Skinny Baked Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti, and Cucumber and Onion Salad

Saturday: Healthy, Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Crackers

Last night I made 8 quarts of chicken stock. I thought you guys would be the only ones that would understand why I was excited to do that!

If I can make it through this weekend, I'll be in good shape. There's so much going on and things to do (science fair stuff, basketball game, company, Christmas decs to get down, library books to return, etc. - plus, I'm starting to teach the next Sunday School session tomorrow so need to plan that). Sunday lunch is usually my toughest meal to do at home, but I'm determined this week.

Saturday breakfast: waffles, sausage, pineapple
Saturday lunch: homemade pepperoni & pepper pizza
Saturday dinner: sausage and rice casserole w/ peas and carrots, green beans

Sunday breakfast: cinnamon toast
Sunday lunch: split pea soup (from freezer), pappadums
Sunday dinner: chicken & vegetable red curry, rice, dumplings

Snacks: cereal bars, clementines, yogurt, or pears

Then I'll go shopping Sunday evening after the kids are in bed, so can reboot the week.

The website is one of my favs there is a GoodFood magazine published every month over here i love it

Lily - The recipe is from Gordon Ramsay here it is:

Ingredients

4 red snapper fillets, about 100-120g each.
Sea salt and black pepper.
2 tbsp vegetable or groundnut oil.
Rucola Salad

For the sauce:

1½ tbsp vegetable or groundnut oil.
4 long red chillies, deseeded and chopped.
6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped.
4 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced on the diagonal.
2 tbsp lime juice.4 tbsp tamarind paste (or lime juice).2 tbsp soy sauce.
2 tbsp fish sauce.
2 tsp palm sugar (or soft light brown sugar).
2 tbsp water .

Method
For the sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the chillies and garlic and stir frequently for about 1-2 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients, stir well and simmer gently for about 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens. If it thickens too much, add a touch more water to thin it down.
Season the red snapper fillets with salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Fry the fish fillets, skin-side down, for 90 seconds until the skin is light golden brown and the fish is cooked two-thirds of the way up. Flip the fish over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds just until the flesh turns opaque and feels firm.
Season the Rucola (Rocket salad) with virgin olive oil, Balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper

Hope you enjoy it if you make it
xx
