Weekly Meal Plan {Week 41}

2016 Calendar

Happy Monday! We survived a very hot and then very rainy weekend!  There was some Harry Potter movie watching, a birthday party and a cub scout camp out over the past couple of days.  This past week was also filled with good food!  Here’s a look at what was on our menu this past week.

Saturday:  We were up in Rhode Island for the Memorial Day Weekend.  My parents grilled steak and ribs which we had with salad and roasted potatoes.

Sushi Platter

Sunday:  We got home from Rhode Island and were not in the mood to cook dinner or go out.  So we ordered sushi from a local place.  They had a new platter special that we took advantage of and everyone was happy!

Sausage & Peppers

Monday:  My husband grilled some sausage and we had sausage and pepper sandwiches with cole slaw and corn on the cob.  Simple but tasty.

Classic Mu Shu Pork

Tuesday: I made Classic Mu Shu Pork from Every Day with Rachael Ray.  This was a tasty version of the Chinese take out version that I like.  Instead of napa cabbage, which my grocery store didn’t have, I used bagged cole slaw mix.  I sauteed some zucchini in garlic and olive oil and also made some rice.

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Goat Cheese Skillet Chicken

Wednesday: I made Creamy Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Goat Cheese Skillet Chicken from Closet Cooking. The roasted red peppers, spinach and goat cheese made a tasty flavor combination for the chicken.  This dish was made in about a half hour.  To accompany it, I made Spaghetti Aglio E Olio (spaghetti with garlic and olive oil).

Mexicali Hashbrown Taco Casserole

Thursday:  I made Mexicali Hashbrown Taco Casserole from The Midnight Baker.  I precooked the meat mixture and defrosted the hash browns in the afternoon.  We had a 5 PM piano lesson, so by the time we got home and cooked the casserole in the oven for 35 minutes, we weren’t eating until 6:45.  So, not a quick meal, but this was super tasty.  Everyone had seconds and there were no leftovers!

Homemade Pizza

Friday:  We had our usual homemade pizza.
