honey, what’s for dinner?

You might have noticed that there have been quite some food posts lately. Reason for that is our very grown up decision to eat after a dinner plan (so we wouldn’t end up eating pizza every night; bad pizza, bad!). When sitting together and planning we considered all the recommendations by the MInistery of Health, such as eat fish twice a week, eat a variety of vegetables and so on. We decided to have certain groups of food on certain days, e.g. fish on Mondays and Fridays. When saying ‘fish on Fridays’, I could see Morten’s eyes light up. He had a mission:

To find an adjektiv or noun for every day. And it had to start with the same letter as that day.  Oh, what fun that was. That’s what we ended up with (please notice that our plan is in Danish, so it doesn’t neccessarly meet the requirements when translated into English):

Ocean – Monday (mer – mandag): We’ll eat fish or shellfish.

Twenty minutes – Tuesday: We’ll have a dish that takes no more than 20 minutes to prepare.

Wednesday’s surprise (onsdags overraskelse): I’ll surprise Morten with a dish and every 4th week he has to surprise me.

Tomato – Thursday: Anything’s allowed, if only it contains tomato.

Friday’s fish: Guess what, we’ll have fish!

Yummy/deluxe –  Saturday (lækker luksus lørdag): Here’s where we can spend some more money on ingredients or maybe get an appetizer or a dessert or even go out for dinner.

Soup – Sunday: We love soups, here’s our chance.

I’m really excited about this project! I’ll probably give you a weekly summary on what’s been on our plates =)

Hope everyone’s having a lovely Tuesday!

    ‘mer mandag’ is not terribly danish either, but hey, we are an international couple :)
