Another Monday means another meal plan! This week school schedules are in full effect. All the activities and clubs have started and the kids are busy. This means quick and easy meals for us! If you are new to meal planning, you can read more about my meal planning process. Here is what was on the menu this past week:
Saturday: My daughter was at a friend’s house. We ordered takeout sushi and watched The Jungle Book with our son.
Sunday: We spent the day at the Hudson Valley Wine and Food Festival. We feasted on poutine, empanadas, pierogis and a kielbasa reuben. By the time we got home we were tired and hungry again! My husband made us a big pot of spaghetti.
Monday: I made kielbasa, onion and cheese sandwiches which I served with fries. Super quick and easy.
Tuesday: I made Slow Cooker salsa chicken (a pound of chicken, some taco seasoning and a jar of salsa). Then I used the chicken in a burrito wrap (cooked rice, black beans and shredded Mexican cheese). I served the burritos with additional salsa and sour cream and a side of sautéed kale and Swiss chard.
Wednesday: I made One Skillet Sloppy Jo Corn Bread Casserole from I Wash You Dry. I used the recipe provided for homemade sauce versus the can of sloppy jo sauce the recipe called for. I made this in the cast iron skillet, which may have been a little big. This was tasty though and a dish that the kids really enjoyed.
Thursday: This is our late dinner night since the kids are at piano lessons from 5-6 PM. Luckily this week my husband worked from home, so while I was with the kids at piano he made dinner. Dinner was a marinated pork loin and mashed potatoes with sautéed bok choy.
Friday: Happy birthday to me! Last Friday was my birthday. I had a 5:45 meeting but my husband was home and made a Korean BBQ feast. We had beef bulgogi, marinated chicken, pork belly, rice, spicy fish cakes, kimchi and dumplings. My parents were in town and came over for dinner and brought a cannoli cake for dessert. It was delicious!
