Meal Plan May 9-15

As promised I'll be posting some meal plans. Hopefully this will not only help to give you some dinner ideas, but keep me on track for cooking at home.

Monday- Fish and Rice
Thanks to my lovely FB friends, I made a bread crumb coated talapia with a spray of lemon to finish it off. The other suggestion was to top with sauteed onions and sour cream. I served the fish with a black rice medley. I found this tasty rice while browsing the aisles of the bulk barn. It has black rice, white rice, lentils, split peas and what looked to be chia seed, and possibly some quinoa. I cooked it with a splash of soya sauce and chicken stock. Serve with your favorite veggie.

Tuesday- Dinner at Dad's. Yes, we're lucky to have family close by who like to feed us.

Wednesday- Butter Chicken
On Wednesday we go to spend the day at grandma's house, which means dinner has to be ready when we get home, cue the slow cooker! I will post the recipe for butter chicken, but for this purpose, I use the PC brand Butter Chicken sauce. Served over basmati rice and a side of naan.

Thursday- Chicken fingers and fries
I've posted my chicken finger recipe before. They're quick, easy, tasty, the kids like them and you can opt for sweet potato fries to add to the nutritional value. Serve with coleslaw and your meal is complete.

Friday- Free day.
We call Friday our "Dirty Dinner" night. That usually means, chinese food, pizza or some other fast food, clog your arteries, don't eat this every day type of meal.

Saturday- Mexican meat loaf
Meatloaf is meatloaf is meatloaf... or is it? Spice up your meatloaf with some taco seasoning, cheese, nachos and sour cream. Serve with a side of rice and beans, and a veggie of your choice.

Sunday- Roast
Sunday is usually family day. We usually get an invite to my dad's for a roast of some sort. This is your traditional meat and potatoes kind of day.

Really me,
The meal planner,
