The less said about last week’s failure to follow the meal plan, the better. As always, I had the best of intentions. But life and exhaustion and getting over the crud/allergies/cold/sinus interfered. We ate on Easter leftovers Monday and Tuesday. I think Muffin and I ate out on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, I made pizza spiral rolls, cinnamon bun style, using refrigerated pizza dough, pasta sauce, mozzarella, chopped up pepperoni, and black olives. That was Muffin’s most favorite meal that I had made in a long time.
But, let’s shake off last week’s funk with this week’s new offerings:
Saturday: shredded pork with garlic sauce, rice, egg roll
Sunday: stuffed baked potato (with chili, broccoli, sauteed onions, bacon, sour cream, cheese)
Monday: bean and rice burritos (I’m going to add some taco meat), chips, and salsa
Tuesday: Pizza Meatball Subs (I love these!) with a Subway-style topping bar, chips, vegetable sticks
Wednesday: La Madeleine-style tomato-basil soup, grilled cheese sandwich, salad
Thursday: hot dogs or leftovers (of course!)
Friday: English muffin pizzas, salad, corn
Saturday: Chicken au Champagne (I found this using Pinterest), a green vegetable, crescent rolls or homemade rolls
Sunday: a roast of some kind, vegetable, potato (maybe roasted), roll
In terms of make-ahead for this week, I made ahead the meatballs for the subs, rice for the burritos (when I made the rice for the Shredded Pork with Garlic Sauce), and the tomato-basil soup on Saturday.
