Menu Plan Monday 6/19/17

Spinach Salad 

This week, unlike last week, and the week before, for that matter, will include side dishes and reminders to make each meal go off without a hitch.  A lofty goal you might think?  Yeh, me too.
However, this methodology was quite successful in my not so distant past...so I'm running with what I know works.   It just takes me so long.  Waaa....

Whatever, whining won't write this post.  Have a great week!

My only complete meal after Monday.  I ate a pork chop all by itself, baked tacos, and an individual homemade pizza for the rest of the week.  Can you see why I need to plan my meals more carefully?  Oh, and the corn pictured above was absolutely delicious.  Five ears of fresh corn sliced off and cooked in a cast iron skillet with two tablespoons of butter, chopped onion, and orange bell pepper with lots of salt and pepper is now my go to recipe for this summertime staple.  I was thinking of adding a sprinkle of cilantro and a squeeze of lime but, I was ready to eat.  I'm sure those two ingredients would have catapulted this simple dish to an extraordinary one. 

OPTIONS FOR THE WEEK:

Chicken Macaroni Salad {I'm using canned chicken instead of tuna}, Green Salad

 Grilled Sirloin Steak, Pearled Couscous, Skillet Green Beans

Spaghetti {crockpot}, Green Salad, Quick Rolls

Curried Chicken Bits, Basmati Rice, Steamed Sugar Snap Peas

Spicy Sausage Pasta, Corn, Buttered Bread

Cuban Style Crispy Chicken {$5 Earthfare Rotisserie Chicken}, Black Beans, Chopped Avocado, Chopped Lettuce, Tomato and Onion, Cilantro Lime Rice


If all else fails, I made six individual sandwiches to be baked with shaved deli meat, cheese, and garlic butter.  Pita chips with Hummus will round out this "I can't be bothered to cook" meal.
