It’s finally here! The week we get to indulge in one of our favorite meals – jambalaya! Looking forward to celebrating Fat Tuesday, the start of Lent and a few other fantastic recipes this week.
Monday – Ground Pork
I have to admit that I kind of forget about ground pork. I just usually find myself making pork tenderloin (the kids love it!), but I am always on board for a good lettuce cup and trying something new with a cabbage roll.
Tuesday – Mardi Gras
It’s Fat Tuesday! We will definitely be eating jambalaya (we have a kit at the store that makes it SO easy), but if you’re more of a gumbo person, that’s a perfect dish for tonight too. Get creative with your proteins and have some fun!
Wednesday – Whole Chicken
Cooking with a whole chicken is a great value and can be a lot of fun. These recipes are two easy ways to roast a chicken. Once roasted, you can use all of the pieces of the chicken on their own or in all sorts of recipes. You can’t go wrong with a whole roasted chicken!
Thursday – Leftovers
We’ve made a lot of great food already this week, and you probably have some of it leftover. Take a night off from cooking and enjoy your leftovers, or enjoy a meal from one of our great local restaurants.
This seems like a good time to ask – would you like to receive an email every time we publish a new meal plan? If you would, just fill out the form below!
Friday – Salmon
I’m trying to get better with my salmon cooking and these two recipes make it look easy. If you’ve been reading our meal plans for awhile now, you know I love almost anything with teriyaki, so I’m trying that recipe first this week. What is your favorite way to make salmon?
Saturday – Lamb
Today, we’re eating lamb! Nick and I were just talking about how lamb doesn’t get a fair shake. It’s so delicious and we never give it enough lovin’, so here we go! I honestly can’t pick which recipe to start with but I can’t pass up a good kebab, so I think I’ll give that a shot for starters.
Sunday – Flat Iron Steak
Ending your week with a good steak is never a bad idea. Adding an herbed butter is an even better idea! And lucky for you, each of these recipes feature a tasty butter to top the meat.
I’m loving so many of the recipes this week that I can’t wait to start cooking. As always, we’d love to hear what you’re making so drop a comment below! And in case you’re looking for more recipes, you can find previous weeks’ meal plans below!
