Weekly Meal Plan {Week 28}

2016 Calendar

Did everyone survive Snowmageddon this past weekend?!    Fortunately, we did, only really being snowbound Saturday, with about 9 inches of snow.  We were able to get some house chores we had been putting off done and also had lots of relaxing time.  Sometimes, a mandatory stay-cation day does a family good!  So, let’s take a look at what was on our menu this past week.

Korean Fried Chicken Tacos

Saturday –  We hosted our monthly supper club.  This month’s theme was “crispy.”  The Weekend Chef made beer battered fish and I made these Korean Fried Chicken Tacos from Half Baked Harvest.

Sunday – We went to our neighbor’s birthday party and ate dinner there.

Chicken with Kale Chips

Monday – The Weekend Chef made Chicken quarters with a tomato sauce, garlic bread and kale chips.

Kale, Sausage and Butternut Squash Linguini

Tuesday – I made Kale, Sausage and Butternut Squash Linguini Pasta from With Salt & Wit.  I adapted this recipe quite a bit, but overall, it was a tasty enough dish.  Not sure if it’s something I’d repeat, but I’m glad I finally cooked with butternut squash!  It had been awhile.

Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken Sandwiches

Wednesday – We had Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken Sandwiches from Diary of a Recipe Collector.  We used chicken quarters and thighs, which worked out great, since the chicken didn’t dry out.  I omitted the bacon and we just had cheddar cheese and tomato on the sandwiches.  We ate this with a Caesar Salad.  The kids really liked this dinner.

Mexican Chorizo Hash

Thursday – We had breakfast for dinner with Mexican Chorizo Hash from Cooking Light, March 2014.  Breakfast for dinner is always a win in our house and this was no different.  I think it could have used a little more seasoning/flavor but I liked the addition of the spinach and roasted bell peppers.

Friday – We had homemade cheese pizza.  Pizza is our usual Friday night meal, especially since Friday nights have become one of our busiest nights of the week!
