Every week I will share our meal plan for the coming week. Making your own food is a great way to save money, explore new cuisine, and eat healthy (if you choose to make healthy foods). A good meal helps bring people together and as you improve your cooking skills you will impress more and more people! I generally use recipes as a starting off point and then experiment with different proportions or ingredients. Leftovers make great lunches for the 9-5 crowd who might otherwise have to decide between a sandwich or a pricey cafeteria.
This Week For Dinner…
This week will be a bit different than our normal weeks because we are throwing a party! I am only including two meal plans this week because we will most likely have a ton of leftovers.
This will be our dinner tonight. The leftovers from the lasagna should last us until the big party.
BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Chips, Apple Salad, & Cookies
BBQ Pulled Pork is such an easy to make, great tasting, and cheap meal that you can use to feed a bunch of people. This recipe uses pork tenderloin, but do what the reviewers suggest and use a shoulder roast. Roasts are much cheaper and the end result is the same! Also, because it is a slow cooker recipe, just set your crockpot to keep warm when the party starts and guests will always have hot food.
The Apple Salad recipe pulls together apples, cool whip, snickers, and vanilla pudding. I’ve never made it before but Shae’s grandmother would make it for the Holidays. Who am I to argue with a salad that has snickers and pudding in it. Yummy!
