Weekly Meal Plan 20170211

There are several new recipes on the menu this week, and I hope we try all of them. On Friday, there is a barbecued chicken recipe, but if we’re tired out by then, we can just buy a bottle of sauce, and coat the chicken with that. It would be easier, and might even taste better!

For the Savory Beer Pork Chops, we’ll use a can of non-alcoholic beer. We’ve had it in the fridge for a while, and nobody seems to want it! Apparently it tastes pretty good, for a non-alcoholic beer, so it won’t ruin the flavour of our dinner.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Feb 12, 2017. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew

Monday — Tortellini

Tuesday Savory Beer Pork Chops

Wednesday Sea Scallops With Brown Butter, Capers and Lemon (picture below)

Thursday Ginger Beef Stir Fry

Friday Oven Barbecued Chicken

Saturday — Beans & Wieners

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. We weren’t in the mood for cooking on Monday or Tuesday, so we just had light suppers on those days. Keith made the scallops on Wednesday, and they were lovely. The hard part was finding the sea scallops! You can see the scallops in the picture below.

The ginger beef on Thursday was amazing, and I’ll be adding that recipe to this blog, with our prep steps and variations. On Friday, we had the barbecue chicken, but with bottled sauce, instead of making our own. It was great too – moist and delicious.
