Weekly Meal Plan Week 13

I started this blog because my cooking was pretty sketchy.  I ran through fast food at least a few days a week because I had no idea what to cook.  So this year I decided that I will plan a weekly menu.  It was going great until I got bored.  So I decided to keep me going, I will add a cookbook to the mix.  For the next six weeks or so, I will add at least a recipe per week from the cookbook below.  You can get a copy new, or they also have used ones that are pretty cheap.  I figured the price of this cookbook is less than one fast food meal for the family, and they eat a lot more nutritiously when I cook than when I buy fast food.

 The cook books is The Best and Lightest from Food Network Magazine.  So far I'm loving it.  The food is good, but simple.  I've tried a lot of different recipes from it and it's a keeper.

So Here is my menu plan:

American Goulash, salad   - Everyone in my family loves pasta, and this one is easy and does not contain nearly as much sugar as the jar sauces.

Grilled Chicken with Roasted Kale- Page 94 of the cookbook.  When I first saw this recipe I thought there was no way my family would eat KALE...but it's tossed with tomato, potato and cheese, and they loved it.  I was surprised.

Sirloin with Teriyaki Broth -  Page 126 of the cookbook.  This steak is served with a light broth that makes it so juicy.  The recipe calls for sweet potatoes but I added carrots as well because they are a family favorite.  They all ate it.  I didnt think the radishes would go over very well, but they are thinly sliced and they add a peppery bite to the soup.  YUM!

Baked Fish and Chips-  Page 192 of the Book.  A lighter version of fried fish and chips.  It uses rice cereal as a topping and is light and delicious.  The homemade fries have become a lunch favorite too.
Teriyaki Chicken Bowls - Grilled Pineapple is so good and since the weather has grown warmer, cooking outside is a welcome change.  This recipe is easy to change up to add your family favorite veggies.
