Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 6.20.11

I hope you all had a nice weekend celebrating the dads in your lives. We certainly did. I couldn’t ask for a better dad for my boys than the man I married, that’s for sure!

This would have been my mom’s 57th birthday, so she’s at the forefront of my mind today. I thought I’d list a few of her recipes that I’ve shared here over the past few years. Whenever I make one of these dishes, I feel like she’s here with me. I just made her potato salad yesterday, in fact, and I think she would have been proud of how it tasted. :)

Crock pot pork roast with potatoes and carrots
Sweet potato casserole
Shredded chicken sandwiches
“Scalloped” potatoes
Biscuits over creamed chicken
Cajun meatloaf
Peanut butter pie
Potato salad

Anyway, on to the meal plan. This week’s plan is a hodgepodge of old favorites and a few new dishes I’ve been wanting to try. I based the meal plan on what was on sale at the grocery store, which I always try to do, but some weeks I succeed more than others. This week was a success!

Monday: Pizza panini and mozzarella sticks

Tuesday: Grilled chicken marinated in Italian dressing, grilled corn on the cob, warm pesto dip with crackers

Wednesday: Chicken salad club sandwiches with potato chips

Thursday: Joe’s softball night, also known as “the night the boys and I have cereal for dinner.”

Friday: BBQ pulled pork nachos

Saturday: Pork chops, steamed broccoli, roasted potatoes

Sunday: Braised beef with potatoes and tomatoes, garlic bread

Thinking about you today, I am sure all days are hard but I bet birthdays are very hard. I am sure she can see how wonderful you have turned out and what great kiddos you have.
