Meal Plan Monday: A Low-Key Meal Plan Week with a Recipe Do-Over

Meal Plan Monday

After the oh-so-epic-fail of last week’s meal plan, I’ve tried to find a way to get back on track.  I’m being kind to Josh who is slow-cooker-ed-out.  Only one slow cooker recipe appears on the menu.  After the failure with the Chicken Parmigiana slow cooker meatloaf, I’m going to try to adapt his Oma’s meatloaf for the slow cooker.  I will chronicle the results here…fail or not.  It’s the world’s simplest meatloaf recipe…and, in this case, simplest is best.

Seriously, if successful, and I can reproduce this plate of happy without heating the kitchen?  Score!

Another notable recipe this week is one that I tried Saturday evening with the LFam but did not photograph.  It’s easy…peasy…and cheesy:  the pizza grilled cheese that only involves five ingredients:  bread, butter, bottle of pasta sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni (although we used salami).

And…I’ve been Kuh-Raaaaving tacos.  Especially with the Alton Brown taco potion.  Done.

Anyway, here’s the plan.  And, contrary to what some people believe, a plan is set in stone and subject to the whims of the winds outside (and many many other things).  In other words, plan and actuality may be quite different.

I’m becoming more than a bit cantankerous in my old age.

Monday:  Pizza Grilled Cheese, veggies, fruit

Tuesday:  tacos a la Alton Brown’s taco potion

Wednesday:  Oma’s meatloaf in the crock pot

Thursday:  pancakes and bacon

Friday:  leftovers, pizza, or out

Saturday:  Chick-Fil-A Chicken nuggets, fries, hushpuppies

Sunday:  grilled pork chops, creamed corn, grilled garlic bread

As usual, I will be linking up with OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.

What’s cooking for you this week?
