Weekly Meal Plan 20160430

We have a busy week coming up, so the plan will probably change as we go along. However, it helps to have something to guide us, even if we veer off course occasionally (or frequently!)

It’s our wedding anniversary on Monday, so we’ll have a leisurely meal, with a Mongolian Hot Pot, where we can cook bits of beef and chicken, and a few vegetables. We’ll have a small cheese fondue too, because…why not? There are no calories on your anniversary!

I’m looking forward to the Chicken with Garlic, Tomatoes & Olives – we haven’t had that for a long time. It’s garlicky and delicious!

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, May 01, 2016. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday — Peameal Bacon

Monday — Mongolian Hot Pot

Tuesday – Quesadillas

Wednesday Salisbury Steak

Thursday Chicken With Garlic, Tomatoes & Olives

Friday Hamburger Scramble

Saturday — Ravioli Puttanesca

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week – we stuck to the plan, except for Tuesday night. There was steak left over from our Monday Hot Pot dinner, so we had that. You can’t let good steak go to waste!

In the picture below, you can see the Mongolian Hot Pot dinner, with the assortment of meat and vegetables. The fondue pot had chicken broth, where we cooked things. The little white slow cooker had a cheese fondue, so we dipped bread and cooked vegetables in there. It was delicious, and lots of fun – even if fondues are an 80s throwback!
