Monday Meal Planning

Last week's meals were yummy.. and it's Monday Meal planning time again. Can I just repeat last week's menu?
We had this yummy Chinese Salad..
Delicious Ham fried rice..












A few very sweet desserts.
I made a trip to the Indian grocery store and attempted to make butter chicken. I say attempted because although it was Indian butter chicken that is served at some restaurants, it was NOT the butter chicken I love at my favorite local restaurant. I am in search for a better recipe.



















However, I will say the Naan that I made for the first time turned out awesome! I would be happy to share that recipe it anyone is interested. It's an Indian bread that you eat while warm.
Okay, here goes... This weeks menu:
Monday- Steamed crab legs served with potatoes.
Tuesday- Homemade Mac and Cheese (we had the best mac and cheese at a reception over the weekend and I'm going to try to recreate it).
Wednesday- Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Corn
Thursday- Leftovers
Friday- Date night (aka eating out)
Saturday- BBQ Ribs (since we didn't get to it today)
Sunday- Homemade Pizzas

Please do post the Naan recipe! It looks kind of like a pancake or other flatbread.

I would love your naan recipe. I go to India at least once a year on mission trips and naan is one of my favorite things to eat there. We have a Pastor friend and his wife coming form India to stay with us for a couple of weeks in November and I would love to make it for them. I just signed up to follow your blog!

Wow, Amy. I am so impressed. Naan from scratch!

We buy a mix at the Indian grocery store for Butter Chicken. We have had several brands and each are good, but each a little different. It's very quick and easy.

Hugs,
Suz

Please post your naan recipe! I'd love to get my hands on a good one. I'm already hungry for it after looking at your picture. :)
I've found an interesting website with videos on cooking Indian food. I haven't tried any but the guy is very entertaining and it gives me ideas that I can use in other recipes as well. The site is:
