It’s time for Menu Plan Monday! This is my attempt at getting your week and mine less stressed, more organized and of course, delicious! When my menu is done, the rest of the week goes so smoothly, not to mention my pocketbook thanks me for not throwing money at fast food.
My New Year’s Resolution this year was to menu plan. It has been the only resolution I’ve stuck to! I spend time looking for recipes, trying out menu subscriptions and writing up the recipes right here at The Frugalette. So, I’ve done your dinner planning for you! No excuses, try it out…one time!
My pick this week is Baked Chicken Korma. Indian food is famous for being cooked in a lot of oil, I should know, I AM Indian! It starts with frying onions, then frying spices, then frying the protein…see where this is going? A lot of people shy away from making Indian food because the variety of spices it involves.Try this baked chicken curry, and my quick version makes it so easy!
I also added a new tool to my recipes! If you like a recipe, there is an easy print button next to it, and if you click on the blue Save Recipe button you’ll have the option to save it to your list AND create a shopping list based on the recipe! How fun is that! Makes it super easy.
I’m still learning my way around this new tool (I am NOT a techie!), and hopefully next week you’ll see it with more images of the recipes I actually made. Enjoy! Let me know how you like it!
