When you know you have a busy week coming, it's a good idea to prepare in advance so that the individual dishes can be simple and quick. I usually cook chicken dishes in those weeks. Therefore, I prepare enough chicken for as many meals as I need.

I often make the same kind of food for a week at a time. Asian, Indian, French, etc. Chicken prepared in this way is especially suitable for Asian week.

There are 4 servings per chicken, so it's just a matter of multiplying how many meals you need. If you are four in the family then it is a chicken a day.

Normally, white potato salad is made with mayonnaise, but I prefer a white sauce made with yoghurt and cream. It is easy to make and equally well suited for everyday dining and parties, red meat or barbecue sausages. Also, you often have all the ingredients in the fridge, so it's faster than ordering a pizza.

This is an even better version of potato chips. They fry better. They taste better. Just slightly acidic and mildly salted all the way through. It is basically the same recipe as regular potato chips. The only difference is that they are fermented before cooking. Basically like homemade saukraut is made

There is no doubt that potato chips are easiest to just buy. But the uniformity of the factory made I find unattractive. So when it is gin-tonic Friday in the small home, it is time to bring out the homemade chips. And the homemade guacamole. And salsa fresca.

Isn't it enough to just bake potatoes once? well sure, if they just have to be tender, but if you also want them to taste great, rebaked potatoes just have a bit more oomph. You simply take a baked potato and bake it gratinated/au gratin. Which you can do close to when they have to be done. They can also be made a day in advance without loosing any flavor, so they are excellent for guests.

Video recipe - Simple, quick and ... delicious. All right. In my family there is, some ambiguity about that. But for us Danes in our forties, it was one of the first "exotic" foods we got. Curry and rice. Just how foreign could food get? Well ... we are fortunately a lot wiser now, but pork meatballs in curry sauce keeps hanging on and is still a favorite. Even among some individuals in the younger generations.

I'm not much for eggplant. It's like a dry and boring version of the cucumber. Which is already the world's most boring vegetable. But if the eggplant is cooked just right, it can be really delicious in both taste and texture. Eggplant puré is one of the "good" cooking methods. Here are two different versions from both the Mediterranean and Asia. With some variations on top.
