Weekly Meal Plan 20160813

Our grandson will be here next week, so I picked kid-friendly meals for Monday to Friday. When he arrives on Monday, we might take another look at the menu, to get his input. Maybe there’s something special he’d like to eat one day, to replace my selection.

By Saturday, we’ll probably be too tired to cook, or eat! It’s pretty easy to grill a steak though, so maybe Keith will have the strength left to do that.

The Pork Chops Pizzaiola is a new recipe, so maybe we’ll try that tomorrow night. I love steak pizzaiola, and I love pork chops, so what could go wrong?

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Aug 14, 2016. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday Pork Chops Pizzaiola (okay, not great – cook a shorter time if we make this again)

Monday – Quesadillas (everyone enjoyed these)

Tuesday – Tortellini (we used a jar of sauce for a quick and easy dinner)

Wednesday – Pizza (picture below)

Thursday — Fish & chips

Friday — Beans & Wieners

Saturday — Ribeye steak

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. We had burgers instead of fish and chips on Thursday, and fresh corn on the cob as a first course. Everyone was stuffed!

The steak moved up to Friday, and we had ham and scalloped potatoes on Saturday, because Keith was shopping at Costco, and couldn’t resist buying them.

Wednesday – Pizza – we got pizza dough from the bakery section, and a variety of toppings. It was delicious, and you can see the picture below.

Thursday — Burgers

Friday — Ribeye steak

Saturday — Ham, Baked


Here is the pizza that we made, using dough from the supermarket bakery. It was a little tricky to roll the dough out, but worth the effort – it was delicious!
