Meal Plans 2/14 – 2/20

Here is our meal plan this week. I hope it gives you some ideas of what you could make for your family. I personally love looking at meal plans and seeing what others are cooking up.

Tuesday – I usually grocery shop on Tuesdays, but Annabelle was sick. Daniel picked up Bill Miller’s BBQ for us. Making dinner just wasn’t happening yesterday.

Wednesday – Our favorite food truck, Rickshaw Stop, gave me a jar of my favorite sauce – their tamarind sauce – to make something delicious. I am making Grilled Tamarind Shrimp Tacos with a side of corn. I will be blogging about this one later!

ThursdayPork Chops with Garlic and Wine. New potatoes, zucchini. I saw this on The Pioneer Woman’s blog last week and I can not wait to make it! I love a good pork chop recipe. Tip: The grocery store sells cooking wine for around $2. While I am sure real wine would always taste best, I can’t beat the price of cooking wine.

FridayPulled Beef with Onions, cauliflower, asparagus. I am halving a large chuck roast that was on sale and making two meals. That is something $5 Dollar Dinners taught me.

Saturday – Adobo Chicken. Rice, broccoli. I love this Filipino dish and this month’s Cook’s Illustrated shares basic how-to instructions. I’ve made it in the past with another recipe, but it was too salty.

SundayZesty Slow Cooker Beef Roast (to be cooked on Saturday). Green beans, cauliflower. I’m making this with the second half of the chuck roast.

MondayPanko Baked Chicken Nuggets, homemade mac and cheese, fruit. The recipe says to fry the chicken. I am baking mine at 400 degrees. 15 minutes on each side.
