Lunches are leftovers; in wraps, soups, or salads.
I came up with fifteen different starchy accompaniments to the meat of the day, and then did a google search listing both. If I wanted to exclude an ingredient, for instance, I used a minus sign such as "-tomatoes"or "-milk". Potatoes are listed more than once because they are just so darn versatile. I picked fifteen so that over the month, the chosen starchy side would accompany a different meat. Indeed I believe it would take 28 weeks for a combination to repeat.
I'll diarize my progress here, as well as on Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. The menu plan is on google drive.
By husband testing each recipe in turn, I can make sure that the menu plan is a crowd-pleaser.
I exchanged heavily on this recipe, based on the foods that were on hand. This is chicken breast instead of thighs, red onion, peanut garnish, and red wine vinegar instead of white wine. The pear offers a sweet counterpoint to the other flavours, and the overall effect is pleasing. I'd use the white wine next time.
