Meal Plan Monday

Every Monday I'll try to share my planned dinners for the week - it may or may not pan out that way, but it's good to have a plan, and remain flexible.  


Here's the plan for this week:


Monday: Turkey Dinner - bought a turkey at Thanksgiving even though we weren't hosting (had to use those stupid Turkey Perks).  I'll do mashed potatoes and gravy, and some steamed carrots and green beans.

Tuesday: BBQ Shredded Pork Sandwiches - basketball game at school means we need something easy - I've got some prepped meat in the freezer ready to rock.  Serving on buns with some baked fries and homemade coleslaw and raw veggies on the side.


Wednesday:  Basic Beef Tacos - mom's got a commitment right at dinner time, so gotta keep it easy.  We ended up not having this last week, so it's back in the rotation.  Chips & salsa, pineapple chunks (fresh) on the side.


Thursday: Manicotti with salad, homemade ciabatta.  I might make a red wine vinaigrette for the salad - I'll post my favorite recipe tomorrow.


Friday: Breakfast for Dinner - there's a quiche recipe I want to try - check it out here: Bacon & Spinach Quiche.  We'll serve it with fruit.  If I don't have a chance to do the quiche, we'll just do breakfast sandwiches - eggs, Canadian bacon or regular bacon and cheese on an English muffin, served with hash browns and fruit.


Saturday: We've got dinner plans, so sandwiches or pizza or something with the sitter for the kids.

Sunday: Turkey Divan - If there are leftovers from Tuesday, I'll throw this together right away Tuesday night or Wednesday AM, and then stick it in the freezer. If not, we'll grab a rotisserie chicken at Costco or something... Using the recipe from a previous post for Chicken Divan Revisited. Salad for the side.
