Mushroom Pulao  Dahiwali Chicken Curry  Mint-Potato Samosas  Garlic Tofu Noodles  Ginger-Chilli Shrimp 

The week ahead looks like it’ll be bringing some unwanted snow to our neck of the woods. Baby Dear will be going back to preschool on Monday, after being home all of last week due to the flu. What can I say, I’m actually looking forward to time alone at home just so I can get some actual work done around the house. The laundry’s been piling up, and the family room looks like a tornado just came and said hi. So yea, it would be nice to be able to vacuum the house without having a toddler begging to try it out! I’ve also planned to do a lot of work on the blog this week, so watch out for some exciting new content coming your way. 2013, let’s get to work!


Here ‘s what we’ll be eating this week for our dinners. Since many of you asked, yes – Baby Dear does eat whatever we eat. I’m not an advocate of making separate dinners, except when we’re having something extra spicy that he can’t possible have. But otherwise, it’s almost always the same meal for the three of us. Follow me on Instagram (hookedonheat) and Twitter (@hookedonheat) for more tid-bits and pics from my kitchen.

SATURDAY: We’re having a family movie and munchie night, so a mish-mash of finger foods will keep us all happy. There’ll be an assortment of Cheese (Tomato & Basil Havarti, Caramelized Cheddar and Gouda) with Crackers & Grapes, Crispy Oven Fries, Taquitos (store-bought, frozen) and Paneer Tikka.

SUNDAY: I like to take it easy on Sunday nights with a quick nourishing and comforting meal to get us ready for the week ahead. A big bowl of Dal with some rice and Veggie Cutlets will be on the table tonight.

MONDAY: It’s going to be a long, busy day (aren’t all Mondays?). I have a ton of chores for the home, as well as a few freelance assignments to take care of; so dinner has to be something quick, simple and pleasing. Did I also mention we’re expecting a bad snow day? So definitely something to warm up our cold, tired bodies. Masala Scrambled Eggs with home-made Parathas it is!

TUESDAY: I have a few recipes ideas I’ve been dying to try out, so maybe today I’ll work on a Veggie Pulao recipe I’m been dreaming up. Will probably serve it along side some Spinach Dal and Raita.

WEDNESDAY: Sounds like a perfect day for a Soup & Sammie Nite. We have a big batch of Minestrone Soup in the freezer, which should pair perfectly well with some Tuna Melts.

THURSDAY: A roti night – fresh hot Rotis from the stove with some Paneer Burji.

FRIDAY: Grocery shopping day! I can’t tell you how much I look forward to hitting up the markets and picking out what we’ll be eating the coming week. It just gives me so much inspiration when I look at the abundance of fresh produce. It’s also a perfect day for me to whip up a fun meal that gets up excited for the weekend ahead. I’m thinking Tex-Mex Meatballs, Mexican Rice and side of Corn Salad should just get us in the mood. Maybe Hubby Dear will be game enough to whip up his famous Margaritas as well!!

What’s on your meal plan┬áthis week?
