UPDATED- Meal plan #20180129

Two weeks in a row for meal plan publishing! It’s either a trend or an anomaly, only time will tell.

  • Monday is our weekly friends dinner- if I’m not mistaken, we’be been going strong for more than 2 years now. We rotate hosting with five other families, and this week is one of those just-show-up-and-eat Mondays.
  • Tuesday Teriyaki chicken with rice and broccoli. If I don’t make this every few weeks the young ones riot. I’ll be making an extra large batch of rice to have leftovers for tomorrow’s dinner. Nope, the chicken wasn’t thawed in time so I just made cheeseburgers and green beans.
  • Wednesday Vegetarian burritos with black beans, rice, and all sorts roasted veggies, salsa, and rice. I’ll also pan fry them after assembly with a little bit of cooking spray because browned burritos are the best burritos. Nope, jazzed up ramen with extra veggies.
  • Thursday Crockpot meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Easy peasy. Teriyaki chicken with rice and broccoli. If I don’t make this every few weeks the young ones riot, and since it didn’t happen on Tuesday it has to happen now.
  • Friday Pho Ga is definitely happening, it’s been far too long. I’ll make a broth with Chicken Better Than Bullion and a bit of green curry paste (I prefer this one from Aroy D). I’ll blanch some fresh rice noodles, dish them into bowls of broth, then add broiled (then sliced) chicken thighs and let each creator go to town on their other additions. Garnish/ingredients to add will include chopped cilantro, sriracha, hoisin, chili garlic sauce,  and various-pre-cooked-veggies like broccoli, carrots, and red cabbage. Rescheduling for crockpot meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans.
  • PS Pho Ga will definitely happen, just over the weekend instead of during the week. I’ll make a broth with Chicken Better Than Bullion and a bit of green curry paste (I prefer this one from Aroy D). I’ll blanch some fresh rice noodles, dish them into bowls of broth, then add broiled (then sliced) chicken thighs and let each creator go to town on their other additions. Garnish/ingredients to add will include chopped cilantro, sriracha, hoisin, chili garlic sauce,  and various-pre-cooked-veggies like broccoli, carrots, and red cabbage.

My goal for next week will be to find ONE recipe to follow for one of my weeknight meals. I have a tendency to smoosh together at least three different sources whenever I try something new, and still usually end up making a change or six depending on how things go.
