Weekly Meal Plan (plus a bonus week!)

>> Monday, January 30, 2012

Dinners This Week:

Crescent Roll Casserole; Roasted Lemon Broccoli

Lasagna Soup; Green Salad; Garlic Bread

Asian Marinated Steaks; Roasted Mushrooms; Sauteed Sesame Spinach

Pork Mole Enchiladas; Mexican Rice; Sliced Avocado

Spaghetti Carbonara; Sauteed Zucchini & Yellow Squash

I just realized that I never posted last week's meal plan.  I wrote it up and just never actually published the post.  As Finley would say, silly mama!  So here is last week's meal plan with the reviews:

Pimento Cheese and BBQ Bacon Burgers; Sweet Potato Fries; Fresh Fruit - Definitely a calorie-splurge but so worth every bite!

Greek Marinated Chicken; Quinoa Tabbouli - To make up for the decadent burgers, we went healthy the next night.  These dishes are tasty, delicious and the left-overs are great too.

Chicken, Sweet Potatoes and Coconut Curry; Basmati Rice; Green Salad - This curry dish was also really healthy and a big hit with everyone; however, I had problems with the chicken being cooked through well before the sweet potato was tender.  I'll make it again soon and try to tweak the recipe so that everything finishes cooking at the same time.

Mediterranean Pizza - no real recipe for this one but it was a nice change from your ordinary pizza.  My local grocery store (HEB) sells an artichoke spread that I used in place of the tomato sauce.  I topped the pizzas with chopped red bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, sliced kalamata and green olives and crumbled feta cheese.

Since I never published last week's meal plan, I didn't get a chance to review the previous week's meal plan.  So here are the reviews for that week:

Spanish Roasted Chicken with Chorizo and Potatoes - Delicious!  Can't wait to make it again!

Spring Frittata - always a yummy vegetarian meal that my whole family enjoys

Creamy Chicken Marsala - this is the second time we've made this dish and we really like it.  I can't ever get my sauce to thicken up nicely, but the flavor is so nice, that I don't mind.

Sweet Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream - Double yum!  Really good and really easy.  Plus is makes a ton so I froze what was left for another meal.

Thai-Inspired Meatballs with Coconut-Peanut Sauce - like an Asian take on spaghetti and meatballs.  Really good and pretty healthy too.  I'm planning on writing a full post on this recipe soon.
