Meal Plan Monday ~ May 21--27

The temperature is on the rise--always a challenge for me since we don't have central air and standing over a hot stove or oven is NO fun! I am making great use of our crockpot and grill this week. I will be making some oven entrees (like the chicken nuggets and the chocolate chip cookies) on Tuesday when it's cooler and freezing them for later this week. 

Here is what's on the menu at our house this week:

Monday: BLATs (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado & Tomato Sandwiches), Carrot & Raisin Salad, Fruit with Yogurt

Tuesday:  Tortellini with Marinara Sauce and Grilled Italian Chicken Sausage, Mixed Green Salad, Berries with Real Whipped Cream

Wednesday: (Kid Dinner--hubby works until 9 PM) Homemade Chicken Nuggets, Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Green Beans, Pumpkin Applesauce

Thursday: Wild-caught Alaskan Baked Cod, Wild Rice, Cheddar Bay Biscuits, Steamed Asparagus, Chocolate Banana Bon Bons

Friday: Mexican Pizzas on the Grill, Cilantro Lime Fruit Salad, Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag 
(Recipe coming SOON!)

Saturday: Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Strips, Broccoli and Carrot Couscous, Cottage Cheese & Pineapple

Sunday: (Crockpot) BBQ Grassfed Beef Sandwiches, Loaded Potato Skins on the Grill, Grilled Zucchini, No-Guilt Chocolate Chip Cookies 
(Recipe coming SOON!)

  1. I need the recipe for Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Strips...I can only serve Chicken if its disguised well...and I can't think of any better way than with bacon! :)What's in the Cilantro Lime Fruit salad? Thanks for some good ideas this week! :)

  2. The bacon wrapped chicken is a recipe (well...not so much a recipe as a technique!) from Lauren C. You wrap a strip of boneless chicken with a piece of bacon (diagonally to completely cover it) and then dip it in a mixture of half chili powder and half brown sugar. It makes a type of BBQ glaze. So yummy! You could secure the bacon with a toothpick or skewer if you're afraid it will fall off. I just take my chances! I've only ever baked them in the oven--never grilled them--so I cannot be held responsible! LOL And the recipe for the cilantro lime fruit salad can be found in the Dinners by Design post for Tonya V. :)

  3. Where can I get the recipe for Pumpkin Applesauce?

  4. Haha! No recipe for that Allison! I just mix a couple of spoonfuls of canned pumpkin with some organic applesauce. Sometimes I add cinnamon and other times I forget. The kids eat it with or without. :)
