Weekly Meal Plan

Another week, another meal plan.  Read on to see what’s in store for this week’s menu!

Weekly meal plan

This week’s meal plan includes something fun; a whole day dedicated to side dishes.  And they are both delish!  Chicken thighs and tenders are on special in the store, so I’ve included four recipes for you to choose from and save a little money too!

MONDAY

Chicken thighs are a great, more affordable way to cook, than even chicken breasts.  They are full of flavor and make great slow cooker meals.

Option 1: Sheet Pan Lemon Chicken Thighs

Option 2: Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs with Orzo

TUESDAY

Taco Tuesday features one of Nick’s favorite tacos – the pork carnitas.  Why is it his favorite?  Well, because it’s cooked in lard, so what’s not to love?  If you’re looking for a taco that’s a touch more healthy, opt for a lettuce cup, which I think we can agree is a basically a fancy taco.

Option 1: Pork Carnitas made in Lard

Option 2: Ginger Pork Lettuce Cups

WEDNESDAY

Chicken tenders.  We all love them.  Today’s recipes are both BBQ, but are very different preparations.  One version uses your classic BBQ sauce where the changes the game with Korean flavors that Nick and I absolutely love!

Option 1: BBQ Chicken Tenders

Option 2: Korean BBQ Chicken Tenders

THURSDAY

Always our favorite day for leftovers!

FRIDAY

For fish Friday, we’ve got halibut and tuna.  My choice will always be any sort of crusted fish, so it’s tuna for me.

Option 1: Halibut with Capers, Olives and Tomato

Option 2: Sesame crusted tuna steaks

SATURDAY

Two beef meals for your Saturday.  The first option is brought to you by the Beef Council, great to make with families and super easy.  But if sliders are more your thing, option 2 is one you don’t want to miss.  Small bites are a great way to eat and this recipe is a great one to try.

Option 1: Foil Packet Beef and Vegetable Meal

Option 2: BBQ Tri-Tip Biscuit Sliders

SUNDAY

Sundays are for side dishes!  Ok, well this Sunday is.  It’s Brussels sprouts day and I remember thinking this was possibly the grossest vegetable that ever existed (before I ever even tried them).  But now, I could eat them everyday because what vegetable isn’t great when cooked with bacon?  And, to add a starch to your dish, roasted potatoes are where it’s at.  And what can make potatoes better?  Duck fat!

Option 1: Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Bacon

Option 2: Duck Fat Potato Recipe

Enjoy a week full of recipes and don’t forget to leave a comment below and tell us what you’re making!
