Meals of the Week – Spicy Basil and Lemon Noodles

Last week there was tons of discounted meat at the grocery store so we stocked up and doing up the meal plan this week was a breeze!

Monday – Cheesy Beef and Rice Burritos – I did up a enchilada sauce I baked them

Tuesday – Pot Pie Potato Bake with Pork Loin

Wednesday – Southwest Chicken One Pot Noodles

Thursday – Hot Wings and Pizza – You just need a night like that sometimes

Friday – Hawaiian BBQ and Spicy Coleslaw Wraps with Mashed Black Beans

Saturday – Stir Fry

Sunday – Reither Goulash


Spicy Basil Lemon Noodles

I made this a few weeks ago to accompany some salmon and really loved how fresh it tasted. One thing to note is you can serve it as a cold salad right away or make the sauce ahead of time to toss with hot noodles. I made it ahead of time and then reheated it fastly in the hot frying pan I used to cook the salmon.

Ingredients and What to Do:


In a small bowl mix together:

3 dl gräddfil – if you do not have access to gräddfil you can use creme fraiche or plain food yogurt

Juice and zest from half a lemon

2 garlic cloves grated

1 tsp red pepper flakes – if you do not love spicy food reduce or omit this

Basil – I used 15 grams frozen chopped basil, if using fresh I would start slow till you get to the taste you desire

Salt to taste

Once all ingredients are mixed together chill in fridge till ready to use, I would suggest chilling for at least 10 minutes to let all the flavors combine.

    • Ours is really hit or miss, I have found the best times are in the morning mid-week. Also in winter we find more deals since less people shop frequently therefore more food gets discounted,
