Wow, 10 days into January and all I've got for you is a meal plan? Cheap. I know. But as I work on some big changes and work out some other stuff, at least we'll eat well!
Meal Plan - Jan. 10 - Jan. 14
Garlic sautéed spinach
Maple-dijon chicken (recipe below)
Wednesday (hosting book club, no time for meal
Kosher chicken wieners
Sweet potato fries
Thursday (Skating until 6:30 - dinner needs to be ready when we get home)
Carrot/orange/ginger soup, which I will adjust for the slow cooker
Homemade bread with butter
Mixed green salad
Veggie & tofu stirfry
I don't like to plan for dessert; even though we are judicious, we still feel like our kids eat too much sugar, so we are happy to program them to think that a tangerine or melba toast is dessert.
Very quick, very simple, very yummy. Serves 4
1 ½ - 2 lbs chicken thighs (or breasts, whatever you prefer)
¼ cup your favourite Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
½ cup Panko breadcrumbs (any breadcrumbs will do, but Panko retain a nice crunch)
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees
• Mix together mustard and maple syrup
• Brush mixture all over chicken
• Dredge in breadcrumbs until evenly coated
• Bake in a single layer in a shallow pan 45 min.
So, what are you having for dinner this week?
