If you have a curry or stir fry on the menu, think about doubling the steamed rice to give you extra for later in the week. We have planned for fried rice as a simple meal later in the week to use up the extra rice. This week we are doubling the Nepalese chicken curry and the Lamb kibbeh. Start to incorporate the food banked meals from your freezer into your weekly meal plan to reduce your cooking load to only 4 meals a week, plus some sides and a leftovers or super simple meal night.
