Ok, I've been trying to meal plan and it's going well... I actually cooked all of our Sept meals but two (one eat out and one made by dh). This month I'm trying to get dh to make one meal a week (at least) and to make bigger meals so I can do leftovers more often.
Breakfast is always quick here because we eat in three shifts (dh, then ds, then me after ds is at school); and lunch is in two shifts (dh at 11:30, then ds and I at noon), so it's a little wonky... I think I'll just post supper because eating out at lunch or in the am is not even an option here, except on weekends... I'll post planned meals in italics... we'll see how we do!
1- Chicken and Greek salad
2- Chicken/carrot/cauliflower stir fry
3- Potato omelet and salad
4- Spaghetti with tomato/beef sauce
5- leftovers
6- new recipe night (must figure out what)
7- Homemade chicken nuggets with peas (dh meal)
8- Steak and homemade fries, salad
9- Latkes and scrambled eggs

Kaya (29) + Laume (31) = ds Kanoa (8) and dd Zia (2)

I'd love to join! We need to eat out way, way less than we do, and I need some good meal ideas, because when I don't have a plan, I get overwhelmed and we eat out.

I am not sure I can remember what we've had so far this month, actually, but I'll try...
1... Macaroni Grill (yeah, not a great start, but to be fair, I hadn't started!)
2... I honestly don't remember what we ate!
3... DD was at a friend's, and DH worked late, so I just picked at stuff around the house.
4... Bean & cheese burritos with homemade tortillas

Plan for this week...
5... Community Group. Potluck, so we're bringing roasted veggies this time.
6... SPPA night. I'll be gone and family will eat frozen spinach raviolis.
7... Broccoli Quiche
8... Veggie stir-fry with Basmati rice
9... Minestrone soup with some kind of homemade bread (maybe rosemary focaccia?)
10... P'sketti marinara & spinach salad (and leftover focaccia?)
11... Chili & cornbread (or dinner out)

1- Leek and potato soup; I had just had a wisdom tooth removed.
2- Rest of the soup.
3- Baked trout with potato dauphenoise. My partner had venison sausages with his potatoes because he won't eat fish.
4- Pigeon breasts with mashed potatoes and cabbage in a cream and mustard sauce.
5- Today's plan is for vegetarian chilli and baked potatoes.
6- Will be the rest of the chilli and brown rice.
7- Will be roast buffalo with yet undecided veg.

I should really start making meal plans, especially since we get an organic veg box, but I always forget. But this week seems to be mostly sorted out. The rest of the week's food will probably involve broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.

Nettlesoup, I've always wondered how to prepare squab, as I know it is very delicate and can easily be overcooked. I am extremely intimidated by the thought of cooking it, as it is quite expensive here and I'm afraid of ruining it. I would love your recipe and any tips you have for cooking it. Cheers!

To be honest, I just made it up. I just fried it for a few minutes on each side, although I did overcook it a little, but it was still good.
I llooked it up and found these instructions; Season the pigeon breasts with salt and freshly ground pepper. Heat the olive oil for shallow-frying in a heavy-based frying pan. Add in the seasoned pigeon breasts and pan-fry for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
I think it all depends on how rare you like it, but it's well worth a shot.

Thanks! How about the sauce? It sounds delicious. I'm a pretty good cook, so I don't really need measurements, but how do you do the mustard sauce? If I overcook it, the sauce would cover it.

The sauce was just what the cabbage was cooked in; I added double cream, salt and pepper and half a tsp of mustard to sauteed savoy cabbage. But you could make a similar sauce for the pigeon, maybe adding fried garlic and seasonings to it; bacon or mushcrooms would be nice. And if you want something healthier, you can use creme fraiche instead of cream, which also makes a great pasta sauce.

I saw the September thread last month and was inspired but didn't get around to it, so now I will make a go at the October thread. DH and I have a limited income and since I became pregnant, we realize most of our reckless spending comes from eating out all the time! We have a ton of things to save for so we keep making verbal agreements to budget and eat at home and then never follow through!
Maybe this thread will give me (at least) more motivation to push it.
Not the best start this weekend, but then again I didn't think about the challenge and we desperately need to meal plan/grocery shop
The plan is at least 2 homemade meals for every day this week...might be easier to stick to since it's payweek and we realized we are down to our last $40 until Friday!
1-Breakfast- Eggs, potatoes and toast at a coffee shop while working, Lunch-Hummus and pita at home, Dinner- Chicken mole at DH's parent's house
2-Breakfast- Skipped, Lunch- I ate a veggie burger and fries out since I was ravenous, DH probably skipped, Dinner- Pho at our fav place to eat out in town
3-Breakfast: Oatmeal with raisins and walnuts, Lunch- Pizza and wings out, Dinner- Taco Bell last minute and late night
4- Breakfast- I ate out while dh was playing soccer in the rain but he ate at his mom's afterwards, Lunch- Snacked at home, Dinner- Wild Rice and Veggie Soup made with all the produce that was starting to go bad and premade biscuits

I'd like to join! I'm always on the lookout for new meal ideas, as we don't ever eat out. It's not in our budget I love reading about all the veg. meals, we've have been trying to move away from meat-centred meals.

Oct.1 - Keema alu (ground beef/potato dish), dal & raita with salad
Oct.2 - Cream of Tomato soup (homemade) and grilled cheese. DS's choice, we do 'fun food fridays'
Oct.3 - chicken & dumplings stew with leeks and tarragon, rice & green beans
Oct.4 - afternoon tea at a friends house YUM!
Oct.5 - leftover tomato soup
Oct.6 - Strata with sausage & cheese

I am intrigued by the sound of this, would you mind sharing the recipe? I normally eat semi-veggie and don't really know all that much to do with meat, but my TCM practitioner said I should eat some every day so I'm trying to learn!

I'd love to share! It is in Joy of Cooking (called ground beef w.potatoes & spices) if you have the book, otherwise the same recipe is here
It is very flavourful but not spicy, my LOs love it!

05 - I made up for the take-out, it was grilled cheese sandwiches tonight!

1... Macaroni Grill (yeah, not a great start, but to be fair, I hadn't started!)
2... I honestly don't remember what we ate!
3... DD was at a friend's, and DH worked late, so I just picked at stuff around the house.
4... Bean & cheese burritos with homemade tortillas
5... Community Group. Ended up bringing homemade bread (from the artisan bread in 5 minutes recipe - yum!)
Plan for this week...
6... SPPA night. I'll be gone and family will eat frozen spinach raviolis.
7... Broccoli Quiche
8... Veggie stir-fry with Basmati rice
9... Minestrone soup with some kind of homemade bread (maybe rosemary focaccia?)
10... P'sketti marinara & spinach salad (and leftover focaccia?)
11... Chili & cornbread (or dinner out)

I ended up buying a baking stone and several other kitchen goodies today, so I have to be really, really careful with the budget the rest of the month. Our pantry doesn't have much in it right now, but I'm going to try to use what is there to the fullest!
