Menu planning Monday – July 7th

MPM-SummerWell this week’s menu plan has some cross overs from last week.  We had a great trip to Palm Springs.  We were able to hang out with family on Wednesday and Thursday so I didn’t have to make dinner.  Yippee!

I did however take lots of time to make homemade strawberry jam.  This is my second year canning jam.  We were able to have homemade jam all year.  The jam made great gifts too.  I will hopefully be writing up a detailed post about my jam making sessions.  So stay tuned.

Monday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches served on Hawaiian Rolls with fruit and carrots. I put the pork roasts in the crockpot around 10 pm and cooked them on low through the night.  It is really helpful to have the pork ready to be pulled in the morning.  This way I can add BBQ sauce and put it back in the crockpot.  Then it will be ready for dinner time.  One warning if you cook it over night open a window near your crockpot in the kitchen.  If you don’t you might wake up to an overwhelming spell of pulled pork.  Smells yummy but not when it is overpowering in the middle of the night.

Tuesday:  Chinese Chicken Salad.  This is pretty simple especially when you use rotisserie chicken from Costco. I buy a head of cabbage which is super cheap and shred it using my food processor.

Wednesday: BBQ Chicken Pizza. Homemade dough makes this extra delicious.  But if you don’t want to make homemade Trader Joe’s has a really good one.  Just be careful because once you buy it, you need to use it within a few days or it will go bad.

Thursday:  Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos.  I had this meal planned for last week.  But when I went to the store and chicken breast were $3 to $4 a pound.  I decided to wait for this week hoping chicken is on sale.

Friday: Egg burritos or Chick Fil A for free.  Have you heard about Cow Appreciation Day?  If you dress up like a cow you get a free meal.  Any meal on the menu!  Check out their website to see all the details and print out your cow costume. 280474_10150304554885572_5365533_oSaturday:  Eating Out
