Planning my weekly menu

In an effort to getting back to being more organized I am going back to weekly menu planning- It saves me time, money and since I know what’s on the menu I can shop and order the halal meat more efficiently. I ask each kid except LF#4 what they want to eat each week, Boss gets to pick one and Mondays are Meatless.

  • Meatless Monday- Fried Okra- Bhindi Do Pyaza with Chappati
  • Tuesday- Ground Beef  Lasagna with Herb Salad
  • Wednesday- Chicken Bombay Biryani with Raita ( Yogurt sauce)
  • Thursday- Whole wheat pizza with grilled chicken & veggie toppings
  • Friday-  BBQ Tandoori Chicken with Naan
  • Saturday- the kids are going to a party-so leftovers
  • Sunday- I’ll grill extra tandoori chicken breast and make a tandoori chicken pasta because I teach at the masjid on Sunday so it has to be an easy dinner inshaAllah-

Since this is the first time I am doing this on my blog I will post the recipes as I go. Go make yours now 🙂
