Wow…the end of May. I hope you aren’t as busy as I am. It seems like every moment between 4:30 and 9:30 is scheduled. The grocery store is an interesting place after 10 pm… We did a good job using all the food last week; there are no leftovers to speak of. This week I’m making a big pot of chili for grazing purposes – as we all have things going. Here’s the meal plan for this week:
Springfield Chili with corn chips and a salad. This chili is the family favorite. We like to scoop it up with the big corn chips, serve it over baked potatoes, and even fold it into omelets.
Grilled Turkey Sage Patties, salad, French bread and olive oil. I like to really give the sage time to flavor the turkey – which is otherwise tasteless. Don’t like to use the extra lean turkey for this – the patties get too dry.
Simple Chicken Caesar Salad and fruit. We’ve been here before. I let chicken breasts marinate in bottled italian dressing then grill and serve over romaine lettuce with shaved parm and caesar dressing. Absolutely no fuss. It’s filling but not heavy.
Beef Stroganoff and steamed broccoli. I haven’t made stroganoff in a long, long time and the boys have been asking for it.
Pork Roast with Caribbean Jerk Spices, ginger ale glazed carrots, rice, applesauce. This will be Sunday dinner. I’ll rub the spices into the meat early in the morning. The leftovers make great sandwiches.
These 5 meals will be enough to keep us fed for the week. I do as much prep work I can right after grocery shopping to make it easy during the week.
