Weekly Meal Plan 20160326

Keith enjoys cooking our meals (most nights!), but doesn’t like to plan the weekly meals. To help out, I make a list in Microsoft Excel every weekend, and he uses that as his guide.

Sometimes he picks a different recipe, when it’s time to cook (especially if fish is the suggestion), but the weekly plan gives him some ideas.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Easter Sunday, March 27, 2016. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday – Baked Ham (we are hosting an Easter buffet)

Monday – Crunchy Cornmeal Chili Chicken

Tuesday – Tortellini

Wednesday – Panko Pork with Arugula Apple Salad

Thursday = Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Friday – Trout, grilled

Saturday – Veal Scaloppini

How It Actually Went

We made several substitutions this week.

Sunday – Baked Ham, and many other tasty items, including Southern Biscuits (Easter buffet). My sister made a delicious dessert – Lemon Delight – and you can see a picture below. Instead of serving it in a pan, she put individual servings in beautiful petal shaped baking cups.

Monday – Roast chicken from Costco (too tired to cook!)

Tuesday – Leftover chicken

Wednesday — Veal Scaloppini with asparagus (Keith passed the butcher shop where he likes to get veal)

Thursday – Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Friday – Make Your Own Pizza (mini-pizza shells and toppings)

Saturday – Burgers on the indoor grill


My sister’s Lemon Delight for the Easter buffet. One of her handmade chocolates is perched on top. They looked as good as they tasted, in beautiful petal shaped baking cups.
