    Default Menu plan for 4 weeks

    It is my menu plan for the month and it serves about 4 people (3 during the week + 2 more on weekends). Sometimes I repeat things but change the main ingredient. for instance, we have spaghetti with meat but one day I have chicken with mushrooms and cream, other day I'll have pork.

    Week 1
    1 spaghetti with meat
    2 boiled potatoes and vegetables with fish
    3 scrambled eggs with rice and carrots
    4 noodles with soy and vegetables
    5 mais porridge
    6 L- Rice with beans and meat D - French fries with fried eggs
    7 L - rice with lentils and soy D -Soup

    Week 2
    1 Spaghetti la Tuna Bolognese
    2 rice with grilled porkchops
    3 cuscus with vegetables
    4 potatoe salad with hard boiled eggs
    5 Grandma's cat soup (it is not a soup)
    6 L- Fish rice D- Pizza
    7 L- Pasta with meat

    Week 3
    1 Soy stew
    2 poached eggs with peas and white rice
    3 meat spaghetti
    4 mashed potatoes with meat
    5 porridge
    6 L- Omellete with Pasta D- French fries with grilled hamburgers
    7 L- Stewed beans and soy with rice D- Soup

    Week 4
    1 fish noodles
    2 chickpeas, potatoes, vegetable and eggs
    3 chicken curry rice
    4 vegetarian Bolognese
    5 cornstarch porridge
    6 L-lentils, eggs and noodles D- rice with grilled sausages
    7 L- fishsticks and fries D- Soup

    At lunch during the week it's just me and my husband and we usually eat soup and fruit plus a sandwich if we're hungry. And on weekends we tend to cook things kids like. Special desserts only on Sunday!

    If you are looking at my Fridays we usually have a light dinner. I also don't eat meat on Fridays so it was easier to do it like this.

    OK. sorry for the late reply.

    This has to do with though poverty times in Portugal. My grandma always did this to me and I loved it just like her grandma did to her. It is not scary but really frugal and good.

    It used to be almost stale bread with goat's milk (my great great grandma had a couple of them) and some sugar- warm. please notice this goes back to the 30's XX century. Hard times by the fireplace - they had no cooker. So this was a cozy meal.

    nowadays I make it with bread, warm milk and some chocolate powder and it is still cozy, on friday everyone is just dead beat. See, not scary at all. I guess this must be what lucky cats ate, not eaten with
    live and help live

    Thank-You for explaining..Durning the depression times here my Mother had "sugar bread milk" here. This was something they had usually in the evening, so they wouldn't go to bed hungry. The name is interesting, had me thinking.. Good to learn new things.
