Meal Plan for the Week of July 28, 2018

My younger son is off to camp this week, so I don’t have to take his dislikes into consideration!  Actually, he’s pretty good–there’s not much he won’t eat.  I am going to a potluck networking dinner on Monday night, while the other two men/boys are home, so there are two dinner options: one I’m bringing with me, one the boys are eating at home. Which are you going to choose?  On Wednesday night I am hosting an information session for friends at our home, so some-kind-of-take-out is in the plan.  Preferably something with quick and easy clean up.  There are more links than ever in this week’s plan.  It’s time to revisit old favourites that are usually baked in the oven but will be done on the grill instead.

Meal Plan for the Week of July 7, 2018

We’re having a heat wave, and it’s not letting up this week, so quick and easy is the theme. We have friends with young kids coming over to barbecue on Sunday and we’re sticking to pretty basic BBQ food–hamburgers, hot dogs, and potato salad, and a quick, easy and delicious no-bake dessert so we get treats without the heat in the kitchen.  I have a busy day on Tuesday with back-to-back client meetings, and the a Wine Social at night–luck me!–so its pizza for the boys.  They have opted for Naan Pizza rather than take out.

Meal Plan for the Week of June 9, 2018

We are still loving the grill, and the weather is supporting this love affair. We’re running the gamut of proteins this week: chicken, fish, beef, and pork (and beans!).   We had to make some adjustments to last week’s plan because life just got in the way, so the Thai Beef with Spicy Green Beans is on repeat because we never actually got to make it.  Monday is Corn on the Cob Day, so we will be having grilled corn with our fish tacos, because who are we to let a “holiday” go by unacknowledged?
