Meal Plans

This week will be a busy week. Lots of prep-work and packing to do because we're leaving Saturday morning for Chicago. It'll be our first real family trip since Carson came along, so we're all very excited to go. Just keep your fingers crossed for great weather while we're there, will ya? So since we'll be gone for a few days, I need to clean out the fridge this week with our meals. Here's what I'm thinking right now... only one new recipe (Monday), so there won't be many posts between now and after we return from Chicago...

Sunday ~ TBD... we're going to visit Kevin's sister Julie's family later in the afternoon, so we'll see where we're at come dinner time. We'll have leftovers if we're home.
Meatless Monday ~ velvety veggie soup
Tuesday ~ tacos with corn tortillas
Wednesday ~ baked pork chops, mashed red potatoes, roasted carrots and parsnips
Thursday ~ pork chops stuffed with goat cheese and either spinach or broccoli, roasted corn or carrots/parsnips
Friday ~ grilled steaks, potatoes baked on the grill stuffed with onions, butter, and seasoned salt.
Saturday ~ Leaving early morning for Chi-town! That should put us in Chicago by lunch-time or shortly thereafter. :)

And since we'll be gone till late Wednesday night next week, here's what I'm thinking for our meals to finish out next week...

Next Thursday ~ chicken with spinach pesto, green beans from the freezer, canned pineapple chunks
Next Friday ~ maybe a quiche?
Next Saturday ~ Carson will be going to my parents' house for the afternoon/evening while Kevin and I are in East Lansing for our college friends' wedding. We'll be eating at the reception
