It’s Sunday, and you know what that means – another post with 7 family dinner ideas for the week.
If you didn’t catch it last week, we started up our weekly menu plan again. Every Sunday I’ll post my menu for the week so you can have your dinners planned out for you as well. Meal planning really is necessary for a large family – or a busy one.
This week I had a little bit of extra time on my hands since Tropical Storm Hermine hit us – It started raining around 2am Friday morning and came down hard. The kids were let out of school two hours early just as the winds picked up they were home and we were house bound all evening and on into Saturday. There was a LOT of rain. This California girl was loving it! Seriously, in one day we got half the amount of rain, if not more, than we would get all year in southern california! Incredible!
Anyways, since I was stuck inside, I decided to not only put together our meal plan but to sort our a shopping list for you too! I’m going to try to continue this each week but please stick with me while we work out the kinks to make the shopping list printable.
Ok, so, now on to our weekly menu plan. This is a short school week since we all have Labor day off, so we don’t need as many weeknight dinners. And speaking of Labor Day, how about one last BBQ Day for the summer?! For you with kids going back to school this week I through in a few extra crock pot meals to make the back to school transition easier – heck, we’re going on to week two of back to school and we’re still getting the transition worked out!
Notes: The recipe calls for corn tortillas but I will use flour tortillas.
Quick notes for this one: The recipe calls for Sambal Oelek and Oyster Sauce and freshly grated ginger – I will not add these and instead use red pepper flakes and ground ginger.
BBQ Chicken Nachos – I don’t have a fancy link to a recipe for this one because it is one of our go-to’s for using up the left over BBQ chicken from the Sandwhiches the previous night. And they are super easy to make so I’m just going to share the recipe here.
On a large baking sheet layer corn tortilla chips, pulled BBQ chicken meat leftover, and shredded cheddar cheese (or a combination of cheddar, jack, and colby). Place under the broiler for a few minutes, watching closely, until cheese is nice and melty and the chicken is warmed. Top with a sour cream drizzle and sliced green onions.
Notes: She does not have the potatoes added into her pot roast with the carrots and onion. I will be adding about 6 medium red potatoes to mine.
