Weekly Meal Plan 20170506

This week, there are two new items on the menu. Keith found the Steak and Beet Salad recipe on the Real Simple website, and wanted to try that. It doesn’t look too complicated – cook and cut the steak and beets, make the salad dressing, and toss everything together. The hard part might be finding golden beets.

My new recipe is the Slow Cooker Light Lemon Chicken. I’ll put that in the slow cooker after lunch on Tuesday, so it will be ready at suppertime.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, May 07, 2017. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. We stuck to the menu from Sunday to Thursday, so that was good. We had a big lunch on Friday, and crackers and cheese for supper that night. Saturday, our granddaughter came to visit, so we had one of her favourites – fish and chips.

On Sunday, Keith made the beef casserole in the slow cooker, and it was very tasty. There was enough left over for lunch the next day too.

Monday, Keith got all the ingredients ready, and I cooked the ginger pork. We served it over rice, and it was delicious – will definitely have that again soon!

I made the lemon chicken on Tuesday, and it was okay, but the sauce needs to be thickened, and it needed more sauce.

Keith couldn’t find golden beets to make the salad on Thursday, so he used red beets. It looked beautiful and tasted good, but we’ll wait to find golden beets to try it again. It was a little too “beety” with the red ones. You can see the dish in the photo below.
