Weekly Meal Plan: May 12th – May 17th – The Start of BBQ Season

Weekly Meal Plan

We continue on the crazy, no routine life that we are living these days. When will it end?? Not for a while unfortunately:/

The next two weeks are going to be named #OperationFreezerCleanOut. I need to get the fridge and freezer cleaned out so that I can defrost them before the movers come to pack us up. :( Follow along on Facebook as I ask for help with some of the ingredients that I have stored in there! Looking forward to hearing of some new ideas from all of you!

Here’s this week’s line-up:

Sunday: Mother’s Day

We had a fabulous dinner at Mama H’s for Mother’s Day. My brother and I got a look into one of her secrets. Marinate meats (steak and chicken) with a dry rub and mayonnaise. The results are delicious (don’t think about what else they are:). We also enjoyed BBQ Spare Ribs and Roasted Veggies. The grilling season has officially begun!

Monday: Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This past Saturday I went to visit a good friend’s new cheese room in the Oley Valley. While I was there she gave me a gorgeous head of butterhead lettuce. My mind immediately goes to Lettuce Wraps. The kids are super excited as it’s one of their favorite meals!

Tuesday: Pasta with Tomato Basil Sauce

Wednesday: Dinner at a Friends – SO nice!

Thursday: Homemade Pizza Night! 

Friday: Crockpot Salsa Chicken with White Rice

I have decided that on Friday evenings I need to do a crockpot meal or I won’t stick to the meal plan. This is an easy one and one that we love!

Saturday: Going Away Party With Friends – BBQ

This one is bittersweet. Good friends of ours are having a going away party for us:( It is going to be one emotional day since these are some of the best friends we have since moving here. Love these guys and are certainly sad about leaving them. I’m bringing an appetizer and a dessert. I haven’t entirely decided yet but I am thinking a cookie (either S’more Cookies or Chocolate Surprise Sugar Cookies) and a dip.

What’s on your meal plan this week??
