Hola buddies!! How have you been. In the neck of my woods it has been an insanely windy and chilly week. When I thought winter is almost over, the weather god has blessed us with another few inches of snow. Through the window I see innumerable white blobs gradually descending from the grey sky and the wind is blowing them in all directions. There is no sight of green and the bare trees are covered with a layer of snow waiting for the wind to blow it away. Though I am not so happy about the snow in March it looks and feels magical. Snow has that calming effect on your mind and body.
On Fridays I dedicate some time to plan our meals for the next week. Initially it felt weird sticking to a plan but slowly it helped me to stay organized and buy produce that are required for the week. Hence reducing the wastage. But as the days progressed I was running out of Ideas and then my Mom came here and I almost stopped doing this. But now that I am getting back to my routine, I want to restart the meal planning. I was looking at my recipe repository and I realized that I need some fresh ideas and recipes to add some zing to my everyday cooking. During such crisis, a dozen of cookbook I own helps me but the food blogging community sprinkled all over the world comes to my rescue. A big hug to all of you.
Okay, now let us have a look at the meal plan of the week. This is a lacto-ovo vegetarian plan and I have reserved meat/fish for Sundays. I just want to be fair with all of you and hope everyone agrees to it. If you want to receive this weekly meal plan right in your inbox do not forget to subscribe here.
