Tuesday- Mexican Pizzas- http://carterchaos-ecarter.blogspot.com/2014/06/meal-planning-mexican-pizza.html
Wednesday- Stir Fry Chicken- Chicken tenderloin strips cut into chunks. Throw into a wok or deep pan with a drizzle of oil. Cook moving around until cooked through. Add in a bag or two of frozen stir fry veggies. You can season with teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, a stir fry seasoning packet, or combination of all of that. You can also find pre-bottled sauces in other flavors (orange, General Tso, etc) in the Asian cooking aisle of your local market.
Thursday- Apple Pork Chops- Boneless pork chops baked in a pan with fresh apples, apple sauce, or apple jam or a combination. You can throw in some worchester or other sauce to add more liquid. Very versatile!
Friday- Hamburgers and Hot Dogs- we are having a cookout here with some friends. I think y'all can all figure out how to grill hamburgers and hot dogs. :)
Saturday- Parmesan Chicken- 3-4 chicken breasts, bread with panko or bread crumbs or Shake & Bake Italian (that's what I use), cook in the oven on 400 for 20 minutes. Pull out and cover with spaghetti or marinara sauce (I make my own or sometimes use a jarred sauce like Ragu). I usually pop in and cook another 10-15 minutes and then sprinkle on LOTS of parmesan cheese and bake until melted and chicken is cooked through. Serve with pasta and/ or green beans and garlic bread. Mmmmm.
Sunday- Steak Salad- We will just get a couple of medium size steaks (whatever is on sale) and throw on the grill then slice on top of a garden salad with all of our favorite toppings. I will probably do some baked potatoes in the slow cooker for this too.
