Weekly Meal Plan 20170513

This week, I looked for recipes that we haven’t had for a long time. We used to enjoy them, but somehow they drop off the meal planning radar. It’s a good thing that I have an Excel workbook to help me remember things!

So, we’ll try those old favourites again on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and see if we still like them. On Tuesday, the pork needs to marinate for at least 8 hours, so I’ll have to remember to do that in the morning.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, May 14, 2017. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday — Ribeye steak

Monday Spanish Toss

Tuesday Jerk Pork Tenderloin with Tropical Fruit Salsa (marinate 8 hrs)

Wednesday Quick & Creamy Chicken Stew

Thursday Speedy Chili

Friday — Quesadillas

Saturday — Lamb chops

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. We stuck to the menu from Sunday to Tuesday, and moved the Quesadillas on Wednesday. I made the Spanish Toss, and it was okay, but not great. It needed a little extra spice or something.

Keith went to Kingston on Thursday, so we ordered a pizza that night, instead of cooking. On Friday, he went to Costco, and picked up some Swiss Chalet ribs. He barbequed them that night, and they were delicious, and very tender.

For Saturday night, he found some nice T-Bone steaks, so we’re having those, instead of lamb chops.
