Weekly Meal Plan 20160709

Our granddaughter will be visiting again this week, so we’ll have food that she likes on Wednesday and Thursday. Also, Quesadillas and Ham Steak are easy to make, at the end of a busy day.

The new recipe this week is Easy Lasagna Skillet, that might leave some leftovers for my lunch on Tuesday. It had good reviews, and we’ll be able to use the leftover cream cheese from the Chicken Stew that we made recently.

It’s been a long time since we had barbecued ribs, so I’ve put them on the menu, and maybe Keith will be in the mood to cook them on Saturday. I could even make some coleslaw, as a side dish!

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Jul 10, 2016. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday — Lamb Chops

Monday Easy Lasagna Skillet (we didn’t like this – see notes below)

Tuesday Chicken Thighs in Hot Sauce

Wednesday — Quesadillas

Thursday — Ham Steak

Friday — Tortellini

Saturday Ribs, Barbecued Back

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week – we went waaaay off of the original plan! Our snack turned into a meal on Sunday, so we bumped the Lamb Chops to Monday.

I made the skillet Lasagna on Tuesday, and it was edible, but just barely. The noodles were unevenly cooked, so maybe it should have been stirred more often. Anyway, it’s off the recipe list, and we won’t be having that again.

Instead of chicken thighs, Keith made cornmeal chicken, and we all enjoyed that. The leftovers were good for lunch the next day too!

Sunday — Cheese & Crackers

Monday — Lamb Chops

Tuesday Easy Lasagna Skillet (not good!)

Wednesday Crunchy Cornmeal Chili Chicken

Thursday — Fish & chips

Friday — Ham Steak

Saturday Ribs, Barbecued Back
