Menu Plan Monday - Week of May 9th
This week, I will be making the pulled pork that I planned to make last week (always good to have some flexibility when schedules change).
Monday: Turkey Burgers, green beans and potato "chips" (thinly sliced Yukon golds tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper)
Tuesday: BBQ Pork Sandwiches (from last week) with Roasted Broccoli, Carrot and Chick Pea Medley (Toss roasted veggies and beans with olive oil and vinegar of choice, salt and pepper to taste)
tip: prepare crock pot the night before and plug it in before heading out the door!
Thursday: Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Bell Peppers and Polenta with Peas and Pancetta (sub bacon)
tip: make polenta (put in 8x8 baking dish after cooking, bake and slice into squares before serving) and make pepper mix the night before; bake chicken and add to re-warmed pepper mix before serving!
Friday: Quinoa Pilaf (Similar to this recipe; add or interchange veggies; add beans to make it a meal and I always sub veggie or chicken broth for the water! for my little guy, I chop veggies very fine or grind them in the food processor, easier to eat and he can't pick around them!) :)
tip: chop all veggies the night before, wrap in plastic wrap so they are ready to dump into the pot!
Sunday: Grass Fed Beef Butter Burgers with Kale Chips and Potato Wedges
