Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 6.13.11

Monday: Brats with sauerkraut, fries. This is one of Joe’s favorite meals, and I love it too – it’s simple and delicious. Joe tops his brats with kraut and sweet relish, and I top mine with kraut and honey mustard. I guess we both like something sweet to balance out the sourness of the kraut.

Tuesday: Crock pot Asian peanut butter pork with stir fry vegetables and rice. The first of three meals I’ll be making in my Crock pot this week. Pork, peanut butter and rice are three things my boys will always eat, so I’m hoping this goes over well.

Wednesday: Pepperoncini beef sandwiches, pasta salad. I just realized I never planned a side dish for these sandwiches, so pasta salad it is. I’ll use whatever noodles, veggies and cheese I have on hand and make a quick balsamic vinaigrette. Nice and simple.

Thursday: Joe’s softball night; the boys and I will probably do breakfast-for-dinner.

Friday: Creamy chicken tacos and Mexican sour cream rice. I put these tacos on our menu the instant they popped up in my reader. Can’t wait to try them!

Saturday: BBQ beef sandwiches with cole slaw, potato salad. I’ll use Wednesday’s leftovers for the sandwiches. I love dual purpose meals.

Sunday: Spicy chicken wonton tacos. Another recipe I’ve been wanting to try for a while. If they’re anything like the little tacos at Applebee’s, I’m sure they’ll be delicious!

Oh my goodness. We ate at Applebee's last weekend and Daniel ordered those little tacos for an appetizer. I didn't care for the pork so I have been trying to figure out how to make them here at home that would make both of us happy. I giggled a little when I saw that you mentioned them on your menu...great minds must think alike!

I made the creamy chicken tacos last week. They were good, but I would do something to spice them up a bit next time. Maybe Rotel instead of the tomatoes? They were really tasty, though :)
