Hello food lovers! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week’s meal plan is a mixture of vegetarian meals from Thug Kitchen 101, some lovely summer recipes and barbecue food from the food Blogs Skinny Taste, and The Mediterranean Dish, and delish burgers from Jamie Oliver’s recipe book Jamie’s Food Revolution.
A meal plan is a great way to save money at the grocery store and solves the daily question “what’s for dinner?” It also save loads of time in the evenings after work. My favourite part. I use a Google spread sheet for my menu plans, but you can use whatever you feel comfortable with or what works for you – a simple notebook, a scrap of paper tacked to the fridge, or you can find some meal-planning notebooks here.
Did you try last week’s cocktail – the Dirty Dianne? I made mine on Friday night and liked it so much I had two! :). It went very well with Monterey Jack cheese and green olives. Here it is.
Ready for the next one? Here it is. This one is also from the Thug Kitchen 101 and is called Apollo’s Fury.
makes 2 drinks
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons habanero hot sauce
1/2 cup white rum
3/4 cup cola
1/2 cup club soda
Divide the lime juice between 2 glasses. Add a few ice cubes, then one of the spent lime rinds (one per glass). Add the hot sauce and rum and then stir. Pour in the cola and club soda, add a few more ice cubes and serve right away.
Sounds good yes? Leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it.
Here’s this week’s dinner plan:
Wednesday: Burgers on the Barbecue, salads
Thursday: Leek & Barley “Fried Rice”

Have a wonderful week!!
