On Mondays, I share my easy meal plan for the previous week. I share this on orgjunkie.com’s Menu Plan Monday.
Happy Monday everyone! We are healthy at our house, school is back in session (we just ended our February school vacation,) and we have had the most AMAZING weather here in Boston and that makes me SO HAPPY! I have total Spring fever and if we get a snow storm I’m sure I’m going to be the most sour person around for it. It was in the 70s on Friday! Crazy!
We stayed local this past week… I worked, my husband worked, but just having a week of not running around like chickens without heads was nice. Not packing lunches, even better!
Here are our meals for the past week.
Sunday: Stuffed Flank Steak – I’m not sure where I found this recipe, but it was different and really good! Here’s the recipe:
1 flank steak, trimmed and pounded
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup bacon, chopped
mozzarella cheese, cut in thin strips
parsley, finely chopped
day old bread, soaked in milk and squeezed dry
lay flank steak on cutting board, cut cross hatches in steak on both sides so it rolls easily. pound with meat mallet, season with salt and pepper.
lay next ingredients on the meat so it is evenly distributed, and then roll up and tie with kitchen string. place in a baking dish. slather a tablespoon of olive oil all over the meat, and then sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper. I usually add some red potatoes to the pan, and bake the whole thing in the oven, uncovered at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes. ( note – I had to cook this for much longer than 30 minutes– I probably should have pounded the beef a little longer!)
Monday: Chicken Stirfry – This is such a quick, easy meal to put together. I bought some chicken tenderloins and cut them up into bite size pieces, sauteed them in Kikkoman’s Stir Fry Sauce, added precut stir fry veggies from the grocery store, and served over brown rice.
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner– a favorite with my kids. Pancakes, bacon and eggs.
Thursday: Sandwiches — my chicken didn’t defrost!
Friday: Teriyaki Chicken
Saturday: We attended a friend’s 40th birthday party, so we ate out.
Have a great week everyone!
