Meals for the next 3 Days!!

With Covid19 numbers increasing in our city & other places I have decided to curb side grocery shop for a awhile. So, that takes some planning.. which leads me to make some recipes this week with groceries I have in the house already! Here are 3 meals I am going to make the next few days..

Usually I decide what to make for dinner & would run to the grocery store but now I am not going to do that. I am going to stock up on staples & then eat our way through them, then re-order. I have to take stock & place an order today.

We have a great independent grocery store here in Edmonton, The Italian Centre Shop, that will get an order ready in about 2 hours so I use that often if I need something fast! Otherwise I order and pick up a few days later. I am also trying to figure out how to use Instacart to order from Costco… there are some items not on the list…like butter!

This is what I am going to cook . tonight, Wednesday & Thursday of this week

Tonight (Tuesday)
Here are the groceries you need to make this dish.. and I serve this with rice
1 shallot.. you can use a bit of onion
2 cloves garlic… or use powdered garlic.. about 1/2 tsp powdered garlic for one clove
ginger… or powdered ginger
red curry paste
tumeric
1 can of coconut milk
4 cups of frozen vegetables… any kind you like is fine

Fish in a Red Curry Sauce

This recipe is from Bon Appetite. I have made very few changes but will put the recipe here with them, inspired by the Bon Appetite recipe. This is a quick delicious fish dish that everyone I have ever made it for loves.

Wednesday
Here are the groceries you need to make this dish..
12 ounces of cherry tomatoes… which I do not have but Have small vine tomatoes I will use
1 pd of pasta… linguini or spaghetti…

red pepper flakes… or use a splash of hot sauce..or not!

One Pot Pasta With Fresh Tomatoes

This one pot pasta is really quick & a perfect solution for dinner if you just don’t know what to have, you are starving & want to eat soon!!! This really does not take long from start to finish!

Thursday
Here are the groceries you need for this dish
1 onion
1 lb ground beef
2 cups frozen mixed veg.. the mix with carrots, corn & green beans
1 cup cornmeal
can of creamed corn

Beef & Cornbread Skillet Pie

This is an old recipe I used to make when I lived in Yellowknife. It is similar to a Shepard’s Pie I suppose, but with a cornbread top instead of mashed potatoes.

And Friday night I am going to make a new recipe for chicken from a new cookbook I have… I will post that recipe on Thursday so you can get the ingredients you need if you can!!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
