Weekly Meal Plan 20170218

We have a busy week ahead, but I’ve put a few new recipes on the menu anyway. The Savory Beer Pork Chops was bumped from last week, so I’m trying it again. The chicken and lentil soups claims to take only 15 minutes of prep time, so that should be okay.

On Wednesday, I’ll make the Rigatoni, if Keith is tired out by then. It looks good, and similar to regular spaghetti sauce, but with cream instead of tomatoes. On Thursday, Keith can make the chili shrimp recipe – it’s one of his favourites, and it’s been several months since we had it.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Feb 19, 2017. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday Savory Beer Pork Chops

Monday — Quesadillas

Tuesday Chicken & Red Lentil Soup (picture below)

Wednesday Rigatoni With White Bolognese

Thursday Chili Shrimp and Coconut Risotto (picture below)

Friday — Peameal Bacon

Saturday Mexican Beef and Rice Skillet

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. On Sunday, I made pork chops, but coated them with bottled barbeque sauce, instead of making my own sauce. They were okay, but a bit dry. The Chicken & Red Lentil Soup was a bit bland, so we threw in some lemon juice and hot sauce to spice it up. That made it much better! It’s not very pretty, but you can see a picture below.

Keith made the Chili Shrimp and Coconut Risotto on Thursday, and it was delicious, as always. It takes quite a bit of shopping and preparation, but he thinks that it’s worth the effort. We had takeout food on Wednesday and Friday, and went out for dinner on Saturday. It’s nice to let other people do the cooking occasionally!
