Our Menu Plan: April 28th to May 4th

by Robin



What's on our Menu this week:



Sunday:  
Pork Souvlaki Kebabs (sorry, no recipe - these are a pre-made packaged item that were on for a ridiculous deal), roasted potatoes with olive oil and garlic with a simple green salad.



Monday: 
Soup and Make-Your-Own Sub Night.  This is a fun new addition to our Master List of Meals.  

We stumbled upon this meal idea after we had some leftover roasted squash and heaps of sandwich toppings.  Last time, I made a simple squash soup.  For the subs, Ed picked up some fresh Ciabatta buns, which our son thought were called "Chewbacca Buns", which made them awesome to him.




Tuesday:
Slow Cooked 40 Clove Chicken I found this recipe last year through Laura at OrgJunkie.com.  It sounds completely insane to use that many garlic cloves, but it turns out amazing.  We spread the cooked garlic cloves on fresh bread.  I won't be making the gravy - not really our thing - but the rest of the recipe turns out wonderfully.

Broccoli and Couscous Salad




Wednesday:  
Oven Fried Fish, noodles and peas.



Thursday:  
Kids Pizza Chefs




Friday:  
Indonesian Chicken in Peanut Sauce (in the slow cooker) with rice.

This was a hit when I tried it a few weeks ago. Once again, I renamed it for the kids - around here it's now called: "Peanut Butter Chicken".  Boring name, but appeals to their sense of food adventure (i.e. boring - for now...).  I'm going to adapt this to be a Freezer Meal and a touch healthier - I'll post the adaptation here.

Saturday:  
BBQ hamburgers, salad and leftovers



This week's Lunch Box Baking:
My daughter and I will bake Blueberry Pie Bars for her Brownie "Fly Up" ceremony this week.  We made these on Saturday to take to friends' for dinner.  They are fabulous!  My girl decided we HAD to make them again.  No complaints here.  (If there's any leftover, I'll put them in lunchboxes for a treat, but I don't really see that happening.)





I'll be linking up to Menu Plan Monday at OrgJunkie.com.  Check out this weekly link-up for many, many more menu plan ideas!
