Weekly Meal Plan Week 15

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:

Turkey and Green bean Stirfry - Page 114 of the menu.  I didnt sub out the turkey for chicken this time.  It was really good and I would think that you could easily sub chicken for the turkey.  This recipe is the entire meal, so I didnt have to cook anything else.

Roasted Pork with Cajun Slaw - Page 141 on the book.  This recipe makes a pork tenderloin and a slaw.  The slaw is made with a slaw mix, so it was fast and easy to make.  Will make it again!

Cornmeal Crusted Trout - Page 168 of the book.  This recipe makes a trout with tomatoes and also a green bean side.  I really do love that this book includes the sides as part of the meal.

Grilled Steak Kabobs - I love grilling out in the summer!  I served this with grilled corn on the cob.

Chicken and Leeks with Mashed Potatoes - Leek and potato taste good together
