Last week’s meal plan was a good one – the Turkey chili verde, Jamie’s Asian Noodle Salad and the Lemony Chicken Gyros (which I served with some marinated carrots) were winners! Sunday we skipped the teriyaki, and instead had an easy chicken tikka masala (Trader Joe’s) from the freezer with pinto beans and naan. We ate home cooked dinners six out of the seven days this week, which was good for both the waist and the wallet!
This week we are going to be a little bit busy, so dinners are going to have to be easy and quick most days. (Also, our favorite spicy italian chicken sausage are on sale this week at Whole foods, so we are going to stock up, and they might end up on the menu again this week.)
Monday: Jaden’s Coconut Shrimp with black pepper pasta. Mango Sorbet.
Tuesday: Grass-fed sirloin steaks, topped with home made guacamole, and served with roasted broccoli with garlic oil.
Wednesday: Refried beans with pepperjack cheese and tomatillo salsa from the Homesick Texan Cookbook. (It was so good that I’m making another batch). Topped with a fried egg and avocado. Warm tortillas.
Thursday: Takeout night!
Friday: Work Dinner
Saturday: Turkey Chili with more of the leftover tomatillo salsa. Special dessert from Russo’s. (Either a fruit tart or a cannoli).
Sunday: BBQ pulled chicken (likely from Trader Joe’s), with pinto beans, and roasted broccoli. Sorbet for dessert.
