Weekly Meal Plan 20170610

There’s one new recipe in the meal plan for this week – Pork Chop Suey. It’s from “Company’s Coming Asian Cooking”, by Jean Paré, published in 2002. There aren’t too many stained pages in that cookbook, so we must not have used it very often.

The recipe looks fairly simple, and I’m sure there are many similar recipes online. Just sauté thin strips of pork, then stir fry some vegetables. At the end, add a mixture of corn starch, broth, soy sauce and seasonings, and stir until the sauce thickens.

The Weekly Plan

Here is our plan for the week starting Sunday, Jun 11, 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 plan for most of the week!

I made the pork chop suey on Monday (Keith did all the prep work), and it was delicious. You can see the picture below, and we’ll definitely have that again. I’ll add the recipe to the blog, with our variations.

On Thursday, Keith prepped, and and I cooked the Cajun Dirty Rice. Another tasty meal, with enough left over for lunch.

On Friday, Keith upscaled the beans and wieners into Beans & Knockwurst & Bangers & Mash. It was delicious, and very filling. Then, on Saturday, we decided to have the other package of ribs, instead of cooking burgers.
