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
