Now that spring is here, we can cook a few meals on the barbeque. For this week, I picked lamb chops and burgers – they both taste better if they’re grilled.
The pork dinner on Tuesday looks a little fancy, but not too difficult – just mix up the vegetables, wrap the pork, and pop it into the oven.
Later in the week, when Keith is getting tired of cooking, we can have simpler dinners.

How It Actually Went
Here’s what we actually had this week – we did a very good job of sticking to the meal plan.
Sunday — Lamb Chops – grilled in the oven, with a mustard sauce – delicious!
Monday — Swiss Chalet — it was a busy day, so the chef was too tired to cook
Tuesday — Crunchy Cornmeal Chili Chicken (moved from Monday) – tasty coating, but a bit dry – we’ll cook for a shorter time if we make them again.
Wednesday — Ham and Pasta Skillet – Keith did the prep work, and I cooked this. We used more ham and less pasta than the recipe called for, and it was very tasty (picture below)
Thursday — Beans & Wieners – with beef wieners, not the turkey ones! I made this meal too, because it was an easy one (I pick the right times to volunteer)
Friday – Fajitas – Keith made these with ground beef, and fajita mix, with a few toppings.
Saturday – Burgers and spiralized vegetables (we got a new Spiralizer)
