What's for dinner!
Here's the meal plan for this week!
I like things that I can make ahead and either keep in the fridge or the freezer for future use. My next favorite thing to do is to make an item that I can get a second meal out of later on in the week. This week's plan uses both!
Teriyaki marinated pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.
When tenderloin goes on sale for BOGO, I stock up! Aldi's makes a great teriyaki marinade that my family loves. The longer the tenderloin marinades, the better it gets! I'll either throw it on the grill or in the oven.
Pork and bean enchiladas. (I use the leftover tenderloin and combine it with cheese, a can of refried beans and salsa and use this as the filling for the enchiladas. Put the filling into a tortilla and roll. Place rolls in a 9x13 baking dish. Cover with taco sauce and additional cheese or a jar of ragu alfredo sauce. That sounds really bizarre, but it is really good! (Discovered this when I ran out of taco sauce...it's a great alternative if you don't like spicy foods. It reminds me of the seafood enchiladas with white sauce that we used to get at Chi Chi's.)
BBQ Chicken Pizza (Aldi's had their take and bake pizzas for $4.50!)
Oven BBQ Chicken and potato casserole
Spaghetti and meatballs (Make a huge batch of meatballs....some for now and freeze the rest for future use!)
Chicken Club Ring (A Pampered Chef Recipe that I LOVE!!!) If you want the recipe let me know!
Chicken Wing Chili
I have another two bushles of apples that will hopefully be turned into some pies/apple squares for the freezer this week, along with more applesauce!
