Did I say I was busy last week? You’ think I’d know better than to say something like that, because this week makes last week look like a vacation week. My family would starve without a meal plan – not kidding.
As I type this, I’m making another pot of chili for next week and boiling eggs for grab and go breakfasts. After grocery shopping I’ll work on tonight’s dinner! There will be no testing of new recipes this week…
Burgers, chips, and a salad. The guys can pull this off by themselves.
Beef Enchiladas and Mexican salad. These enchiladas have turned out to be a surprise hit; I still have chipotle peppers in the freezer from the original test. The salad has a full serving of vegetables and a kick from the hot sauce which is added to the dressing.
Tortellini Casserole and tossed salad. I’m willing to place money on the fact that they will scrap the recipe and just make the tortellini and pour sauce over the top!
Bulgogi, Pineapple Ambrosia, rice. The favorite meal of the only child who will be home for dinner. I’ve gone from taking a modest knob off of a ginger root to grabbing the whole thing.
Grilled Garlic Chicken, stuffed baked potatoes, steamed broccoli. I’ll set the chicken to marinate in the morning, have one of the kids pop the potatoes in the toaster oven (a lifesaver on hot days!), and it will take about 20 minutes to get it all on the table.
Pork Roast with Caribbean Jerk Spices, garlic rice, potato asparagus leek salad, Mexican fruit salad. For those of you playing along at home, yes, this was on last week’s menu. It did not happen, and since we’re entertaining this weekend I just forwarded the meal.
