Weekly Dinner Plan: Week 3

menu-plan

Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and managed to try some of the recipes from last week’s meal plan. We’ve had almost Spring-like weather here, which made me feel like barbecuing, but, alas! It’s not to be just yet 😦 – we had a light dusting of snow again last night.

A meal plan is a great way to save money at the grocery store and solves the daily question “what’s for dinner?” It also save loads of time in the evenings after work. My favourite part. I use a Google spread sheet for my menu plans, but you can use whatever you feel comfortable with or what works for you – a simple notebook, a scrap of paper tacked to the fridge, or you can find some meal-planning notebooks here.

If you’re new to meal planning, check out my post as to how to get started, here, and if you would like to see some of the previous weeks’ dinner plans, click here.

In order to reduce our cholesterol, we have increased the amount of fish and shell fish we eat in our diet – two to three times a week is what’s recommended by the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. I also included some comfort food in the form of a slow cooker Italian Beef Stew and my favourite Italian Crusty bread.

Monday:  Baked Salmon With Garlic Cilantro Sauce, Lebanese Rice, Mediterranean Salad    

Tuesday: Rustic Slow Cooker Italian Beef Stew,  Crusty Italian bread.

Wednesday: Mediterranean Fish Fillet Recipe, Shakshuka-Style, Brown Rice and Pita.

Thursday: Middle Eastern Beef Stew with Green Beans and Tomatoes, Brown Rice

Friday: Date Night! 🙂

Saturday:  Skillet Lemon Chicken with Olives and Herbs,  Zesty Lime, Shrimp and Avocado Salad, Baguette
