Weekly Meal Plan | May 18, 2020 – May 24, 2020

Each week, we create a meal plan to help you plan and prepare. This week, we're hoping you find something new to try!

Weekly Meal Plan

We’ve got one week until Memorial Day, so this week’s recipes are about as far away from traditional grilling recipes as you can get.  Asian flavors, a couple meals great to make with your kids, catfish and soup from scratch!

MONDAY

Ginger Pork Lettuce Cups

I love this dish because it works for a fun party appetizer or a light summer dinner (or even lunch).  Pork helps keep it light, but I of course, love it with chicken as well.  Asian flavors are on the top of my favorites list, so what’s not to love about this dish.

TUESDAY

Chorizo and Rice Skillet

This week’s one pan (well, one skillet) meal is on Taco Tuesday – what could be better?!  As is the case with most Mexican food, you have plenty of room to be creative with this recipe.  Kick it up a notch and make this a spicy dish, add in beans or even put this over chips, instead of in a tortilla.  Any way you do it, this recipe will become a fave of yours quickly.

WEDNESDAY

Roast Beef Cheddar Pockets

Even with restrictions lifted, most of my friends are still keeping their kids home and spending a lot more time cooking at home, rather than restaurants, so I chose this recipe as another fun one you can make with your kids.  Make it for lunch, a snack or dinner and the whole family will enjoy it.

THURSDAY

Leftovers

Mexican food is always good for leftovers, but I bet you have some of those tasty cheddar pockets too!

FRIDAY

Blackened Catfish

I’ve been re-watching a lot of MasterChef and they always seem to be cooking catfish, so I’m intrigued!  I’ve certainly never cooked with it before, but I suppose now is a good a time as any.  According to my vast MasterChef knowledge, it’s typically fried, so this will be a true test!

SATURDAY

Thai Chicken Satay

I’m all about the sauce and that’s exactly why this is my favorite dish of the week.  We all know how much chicken I eat, but add in Thai flavors and a peanut sauce and you’re close to creating my very favorite meal.  This meal on a skewer is another fun one for kids to get involved in, plus throw them on the grill for even more delicious flavor.

SUNDAY

Split Pea and Hock Soup

Since you’ll almost certainly be grilling out tomorrow, today’s recipe is about as opposite from that as it can be.  This is comfort food to the max and is a perfect Sunday recipe because you can set it in the slow cooker, go about your weekend and come back to a warm dinner.

Are you grilling all weekend to celebrate Memorial Day?  Or saving that for Monday?  Let us know what you’re cooking by leaving a comment below.
