Week of Dinners ; Jan 23 - 29

It's the last day of the challenge, so here are my dinners from the past week. This challenge really motivated me to try out some new recipes. It was so much fun and I definitely found a couple of dishes that I'll be making more regularly from now on ...


Wednesday January 23rd

Fish stew with garam masala spices, chick peas, onion, spinach and tomatoes - served with cilantro and garlic naan and some lemon juice. I loosely followed a recipe for this dish but changed around a lot of the ingredients. It tasted really good! I will definitely be adding (variations of) this recipe to my repertoire.

Thursday January 24th

I had a friend over who prefers more classical dishes (a.k.a. meat/fish + potatoes + vegetables) and I had some tartare sauce leftover from a visit to the fritterie the weekend before, so I made (storebought) battered fish with tartare sauce and lemon juice, potato wedges and broccoli.

Friday January 25th

I kinda made this dish up without following a recipe, but it was super delicious so I'll definitely be making it again (with some modifications, like using fresh mango instead of canned ...) ; onion, ginger, garam masala spices, vegan 'chicken strips', broccoli, mango and pineapple in coconut milk served with rice.

Saturday January 26th

I had friends over who brought leftover vegan pasta bolognese. Since the leftovers wouldn't be enough for 3 people, I also served a simple storebought tomato & basil soup as a starter. I also proceeded to make these vegan dishes non-vegan by adding cheese to EVERYTHING (the packet of cheese was already open and needed to get finished).

Sunday January 27th

I ate the leftovers of Friday's dinner (I live alone, so I usually eat every dish I make twice). It looked a whole less appetizing after having sat in the fridge and being reheated, but it still tasted good.

Monday January 28th

This was my interpretation of the Japanese dish 'nikujyaga' ; beef strips, potatoes, carrots, green beans and onion stewed in a mixture of water, sake, mirin, soy sauce and sugar served with rice. Unfortunately it didn't turn out as I had wanted it to and tasted quite bland. I think I might've used too much fluid? I'll need to try again another time ...

Tuesday January 29th

I follow a class on Tuesdays after work, so I needed something quick and easy for dinner. I had a huge lunch of leftover nikujyaga at work, so for dinner I just got a small cold pasta salad with sundried tomatoes, pine nuts, Prosciutto di Parma and Parmesan cheese from the snackbar next to my workplace.
