Meal Plan for the Week of September 8, 2018

Whole chicken is on sale again this week, so two chickens are getting grilled, one souvlaki-style to have with Greek salad, and one just lightly seasoned, to be used for other meals during the week.  We are having a bit of a cool front (I’m not willing to call it cold) coming in, so I’m thinking soup won’t be amiss, and Tuesday is a busy day, so quick quesadillas will work well.  I have a seminar on Wednesday night and my husband is also out, so the kids are overjoyed that they’ll get to order pizza.  The oldest wants to be cooking more, so he will be making frittata on Thursday because it’s easy and easily adaptable to the ingredients you have on hand.  And that, my friends, is how this week’s plan evolved.

Meal Plan for the Week of March 17, 2018

This week is pretty chicken-intensive because boneless, skinless chicken breast is on sale for $3/lb at Loblaws.  My tip for easy weeknight meal prep is to cook extra chicken for dinner on Sunday night and use the extra cooked chicken later on in the week.  The featured recipe this week will be Sunday night’s Moroccan Chicken, and will be posted Sunday morning.  If you follow along and make extra chicken, you are all set for Tuesday night’s Cobb Salad.  It is my youngest son’s birthday on Thursday, so dinner out has been worked into the Plan this week.  Maybe you can substitute something from one of the previous plans into your week, or fill in the blank with one of your own family favourites and share below.
