One Week Meal Planning

My husband and I are busy people, we work a lot of hours.  Sometimes at the end of the day we don’t feel like doing anything but sit down and relax.  So I decided to start doing “One Week Meal Planning”.  I do this all the time, and it really help us both.  We don’t have to worry about what to cook and everything.  Last Sunday I made different meal and side.  I cook different recipes that will last us for a week or so.

Sometimes we end-up putting the rest in the freezer, but this time it’s just enough to be inside the Fridge and heat up.  I don’t think we will have anything to be put in the freezer. Anyway, let me show you what I have cooked on Sunday.

If you have any recipe that you would like to share feel free to leave down below in the comments box.  Thank you all.

Boodle Fight

I am sure some of you have a heard the term Boodle Fight. Boodle Fight is an arrangement dinner eat using your fingers. This type of meal has it’s roots in the Philippine military’s style of eating in which soldiers, regardless what rank you are in or what position you are, they all dine in together on the food that is spread out on the top of the banana leave.  It’s strikingly hands only, no forks or spoon at all not even knives.

A friend of mine invited us to her house Saturday night not knowing really what she was cooking or preparing. When we arrived at her house we saw all the delicious food on the top of the banana leaves.  She was telling me that we are doing Boodle Fight.  Everything she prepare was very delicious, we had some left overs and of course she let us carry it with us.  She made rice noodles, grilled some pork chop, rice of course, shrimps, and dried fish.  
A great way to spend with friends is having a boodle fight.  It’s fun eating with just your hand, I know some of you may thinks it’s gross but remember before joining on the boodle fight you can wash hand.  On the military sometimes they don’t even wash their hand because they are in the rush of eating.  You learn how to leave like an army, you won’t have a hard time fitting in to this kind of fun.  You can do Boodle Fight with pretty much anything.  You can do tacos, any food that you want to eat really, just remember no cheating.  No fork – spoon – knives must allowed. 
And as you can see we pretty much eat most of it, with a little bit of left over.  It was a great time, even my daughter enjoyed it.  Let me know if you tried this one and tell me what you think about it. Have you done boodle fight before? Did you like it?


One of Our Favorite to Make is Eggroll

One of Our Favorite to Make is Eggroll, when I make egg roll I always make a bunch enough that I can put some in the freezer.  There is two way to cook the egg-roll, you can either baked it or fry it using vegetable oil or olive oil.  I tried baking them few times and I like it, it was still crispy like I wanted it to be.  If you fry the egg-roll make sure you use a paper towel to let them drain all the oil from being fry.  Make this ahead of time, and separate base on how many eggrolls your crew in your household a meal. 

You can make eggroll with just vegetables if you can’t eat meat.  Or you can buy a ground turkey or ground chicken to make it more healthier.  A lot of people use either ground pork or ground beef.  Use whatever meat fit you, I know I have made this with deer meat and oh boy it was delicious.  But definitely you can make this vegetarian as well.  You can even use tofu on this, just thinly slice it and you will be good to go.

If you are busy like me, then you are most likely preparing all your food ahead or time.  Making one big preparation and save whatever is left for the later.  For eggroll you can use the wrapper that you see at Walmart,  I can’t remember how many in one package, but I always buy two to three of those wrapper that way I have a bunch to keep.  If you have Asian store near you, the best eggroll wrapper you can get is at Asian store, it’s thin wrapper and easy to work with. 

Anyway, Eggroll is one of our favorite to eat at home.  I don’t make it all the time though, if you have some recipes you want me to share or know how to make them, let me know by leaving comments below.  Have a bless day everyone.
