I missed last week, and by Friday, was really missing my plan. Last weekend was the kids' birthday parties, and after that, I was exhausted and we just spent the week surviving until this weekend. Luckily some of the meals I had planned the week before we didn't make that week, so I knew what to make for part of the week. By the time Thursday and Friday rolled around, though, I was out ideas, so I was actually looking forward to meal planning for this week.
Here's what's on tap for the week:
Saturday: The sun is shining today and with highs close to 40, we're going to grill out tonight. Most likely some specialty brats from our favorite grocery store.
Sunday: Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. My mother-in-law made this for Christmas and I couldn't get enough of it, so she willingly shared the recipe with me. I'll try to snap some pictures as I'm making it and share the recipe on here.
Monday: leftover pork tenderloin
Tuesday: Ham and Cheese Gnocchi. Gnocchi is one of my favorite foods, and paired with creamy ham and cheese goodness, I couldn't pass this up when a friend pinned it.
Wednesday: Chicken Minestrone Stew. It's been awhile since I made this one, but I remember us all liking it, so I'm hoping that holds true again. Wednesday is a busy night, so I needed a crock pot meal for this one.
Thursday: leftover stew
Friday: Roasted Chicken. I'm trying to clear some things out of the freezer and I've got a whole chicken in there that needs to be used. Using a combination of a few recipes and doing this in the crock pot.
