Weekly Meal Plan 20160723

It’s going to be another hot week, so the meal plan might have a few changes, based on how the heat affects our appetite, and our willingness to cook! Tomorrow, we can pick up a roasted chicken from the supermarket, if we don’t want to cook one ourselves.

I picked recipes that look easy, and most are old favourites. There’s one item on the menu that we haven’t tried before – the pork medallions.

Also, our grandson is visiting on Monday, so I’ve put fish and chips on the menu for that night. He’s usually hungry, no matter what the temperature is.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Jul 24, 2016. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday — Chicken, roasted – on the barbecue rotisserie (picture below)

Monday — Fish & chips

Tuesday — Peameal Bacon

Wednesday — Ravioli Puttanesca

Thursday — Quesadillas

Friday Pork Medallions with Grainy Mustard Sauce

Saturday — Burgers

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. Keith found the rotisserie attachment for the barbecue, and cooked the chicken there. The skin was burnt to a crisp, but the inside was moist and delicious. Next time we’ll add the barbecue sauce near the end of the cooking time.

As expected, the meals got bumped around a bit, and a couple of items fell off the menu. We couldn’t find any Puttanesca Ravioli at the supermarket, so just bought the regular kind instead, and some Rosé pasta sauce to go with it. On Thursday, we were too tired to cook, so we snacked on cheese and crackers instead.
