Our Weekly Menu Plan: November 11th to 17th

by Robin




It feels so good to be back into a regular meal planning habit.  I feel better equipped to deal with a busy week ahead if I do this one task on the weekend.  It honestly, takes about 5 minutes - mostly because we use the Menu Planning Board I made last winter.  I love that thing - best $8 I've ever spent.

What's on our Menu this week:





Monday: 
"Sauce Chicken" (aka Chicken Stew with Curry Sauce)  served with couscous





Tuesday:
Simple Marinated Pork Chops with noodles and Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower




Wednesday:  
Our Fish Stick Hack with peas and mashed potatoes.



Thursday:  
Roasted Pork Tenderloin (recipe coming soon - though I've said that before - it's the photo taking that slows the posting - sorry!), Broccoli with 5 Minute Bread.





Friday:  
Better Thank Takeout: Baked Chinese Chicken with Lemon Sauce




Saturday:  
We're planning to invite friends over.  So far - no great idea for what the meal will be, but we'll come up with something!  And it will be awesome.

For the kids, we usually do an easy to please recipe - probably our old reliable:  Kids Pizza Chefs.



Do you ever do that?  Feed the kids first and then dig into some real chow with the grow-up friends afterward?  As a rule, we don't have separate meals, except on special nights when the same old just won't do.
