Weekly Meal Plan 20170520

It’s the Victoria Day long weekend, so we’ll be taking it easy. I put roast chicken on the menu for tomorrow, because it’s quick and easy to make, and there are usually leftovers for a lunch or two. We’ll have the chicken with cranberry sauce too, and use the leftover sauce on Monday.

For later in the week, I’ve put two new recipes on the schedule – Sausage with Chard and Rhubarb, and Three Cup Chicken.

We’ve had the Meatballs With Cranberry Sauerkraut Sauce before, and enjoyed it, but not for a long time. There are still a few meatballs in the freezer, so this should be a nice way to use those (and the leftover cranberry sauce).

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, May 21, 2017. There are links for some recipes, and others are made “freestyle”.

Sunday Roast Chicken and Potatoes

Monday Meatballs With Cranberry Sauerkraut Sauce

Tuesday Sausage with Chard and Rhubarb

Wednesday Pasta Carbonara With Mushrooms

Thursday Three Cup Chicken (Thai)

Friday Ham and Pasta Skillet

Saturday — Burgers

How It Actually Went

Here’s what we actually had this week. On Sunday, we were too lazy to cook, so our supper was cheese and crackers. On Monday, Keith made Turkey Schnitzel, and that was delicious, as always.

I made the meatballs on Tuesday, and they were tasty, but a little on the sweet side. We used sweet chili sauce, so maybe it would be better with a mixture of hot chili sauce and sweet chili sauce.

Keith made the Pasta Carbonara on Wednesday, and got everything prepped on Thursday, so I could make the Three Cup Chicken. We didn’t have any fresh basil though (oops!), so I used some dried basil instead. It was okay, but not the same, obviously, without the fresh basil.

Monday — Turkey Schnitzel
