Weekly Meal Plan 20160514

This week, I found a couple of new recipes to add to the rotation. The chicken cutlets recipe is from Rachael Ray, and the citrus is grapefruit juice. That sounded good, and I think we have one of those single serve grapefruit sections in the fridge.

The other new recipe is the Thai pork salad. The instructions look easy, and serving it on a cabbage leaf will add some crunch, without a lot of calories.

We’ve made the Longevity soup twice before, and loved it. The second time though, I think we tried unsalted chicken broth, and it wasn’t quite as good.

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. We moved the pasta to Thursday, and had grilled cheese on Wednesday. We had been shopping at the garden centre that day, so maybe that’s why we were too tired to cook.

The chicken cutlets were delicious, and there’s a picture below, so you can see how they turned out. Keith did all the prep work on Monday and Tuesday, and I did the cooking on those days.

The pork salad tasted great, but we had an unexpected guest for supper, and he didn’t care for it. I had cut the pork into bite-sized pieces, as the recipe said, so about 1/2″ cubes. If I make it again, I’d use ground pork, or would cut the pork into smaller cubes. It could also go into a tortilla wrap, instead of the Napa cabbage.

Sunday — Meat Loaf, Easy

Monday — Chicken Cutlets with Citrus Tarragon Pan Sauce
