Meal Plan for the Week of July 14, 2018

There’s no real strategy behind the Meal Plan this week.  There are no fantastic specials at the grocery store, no special meals to cook.  I’m mostly trying to create space in the freezer by using up some things we have in there. It’s summer, so burgers are a regular fixture.  Everyone likes them, so why not, right?  We buy ground beef, usually Lean so there is some fat content to keep them juicy, in large quantities when it’s on sale and make a dozen burgers at a time so there are always some in the freezer and it’s easy to take extra out if the kids have friends over.  If the Extra Lean beef is on sale at a lower price than the Lean, we will add in a package of ground pork for the fat/juicy component that would be missing.


Tandoori Chicken with Carrot Salad, Curried Potato Salad, and Raita–Whole Chicken, plain yogurt, carrots, lemon, potatoes, tandoori spice, cucumber, mint


Burgers and Salad–ground beef, buns, lettuce, tomato, onions, cucumber


Grilled Chicken Tacos with Rice and Cowboy Caviar–chicken breast, soft tortillas, lettuce, avocado, tomato, corn, black beans, onion


Pork Fried Rice Lettuce wraps–pork loin, rice, carrots, celery, cabbage, green onions, green beans, edamame, Boston lettuce


BBQ Ribs with Coleslaw and Potato Salad


Teriyaki Shrimp and Sesame Noodle Salad–Raw Shrimp, Teriyaki Sauce, Stir Fry Noodles, Carrots, broccoli, green beans, cabbage, Tahini


Grilled Chicken BALT (Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce and Tomato) on Sourdough–chicken breast, golden Italian dressing, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato
