We plan our meals for about two weeks when we go grocery shopping. A lot of bloggers share what they plan to make for the week in a post like this. I know plans change and I can not tell a lie, so I am sharing what our family ate the week prior to this.
Sunday: we visited with my husbands family and had his favorite dish – chicken wrapped in bacon. Someday I will share that recipe.
Monday: we had a busy night, so we did a clean out the refrigerator dinner. Everyone picked a leftover to eat.
Tuesday: Scott was out late at work, so the kids and I had breakfast for dinner. Scott is not a fan of breakfast for dinner, so the kids enjoy this when Daddy is away. I tried a new pancake recipe from King Arthur Flour – Simply Perfect Pancakes. Since this was a new recipe to me I followed the directions exactly. I prefer whole wheat flour, but I stuck to the recipe for the first attempt. The pancakes were really fluffy. Definitely a keeper!
Wednesday: Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti
Thursday: my husband was in charge of making the spaghetti on Wednesday and made way too much. Since I had leftover spaghetti I made Eggplant Parmesan to go with it.
Friday: Shrimp with Spicy Garlic Sauce and Jasmine Rice.
Saturday: my husband found steaks in our freezer, so we made steak on the grill (we had snow Saturday morning, so my son shoveled a path to the grill) and Zucchini Caprese Salad.
