Weekly Meal Plan 20160702

It’s hard to do meal planning in the summer, because the weather can affect your appetite, and your willingness to cook dinner. We stuck to our plan pretty well at the beginning of  last week, but then our plans changed, and so did the meal plan.

I’ve got two new items in the plan this week – Foil-Pack Chicken Fajitas, and Marinated Pork Chops. Our granddaughter will be here for the fajitas, so she might enjoy assembling her own supper.

For the stir fry, I’ll try using a bag of coleslaw mix, instead of chopping the vegetables myself. That should be quick and easy!

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Jul 03, 2016. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday — Beans & Wieners

Monday – Quick Chicken stir fry (using chicken strips and coleslaw mix == picture below)

Tuesday — Tortellini

Wednesday Marinated Pork Chops

Thursday — Fish & chips

Friday Foil-Pack Chicken Fajita Dinner

Saturday — Ribeye steak

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. We skipped the Tortellini on Tuesday, and everything got bumped up a day. Keith was in the butcher’s neighbourhood on Friday, so he picked up some veal for supper.

Sunday — Beans & Wieners

Monday Quick Chicken stir fry – It was quick and easy, and almost as good as versions that take a lot longer to prepare. I added garlic, Dijon mustard, and Frank’s Hot Sauce to the sauce, to give it a little more zip. (picture below)

Tuesday Marinated Pork Chops – I forgot to marinate these overnight, so they weren’t as good as they could have been. Probably won’t make them again.

Wednesday — Fish & chips

Thursday Foil-Pack Chicken Fajita Dinner – Keith made his with ground beef, instead of chicken, and we all enjoyed them.

Friday Veal Schnitzel

Saturday — Ribeye steak

Here are two pictures of the Chicken Stir Fry – the ingredients, and the completed dish. I also added garlic, Dijon mustard, and Frank’s Hot Sauce to the sauce, to give it a little more zip.
