Good morning! We've had a busy weekend around here. But a lot of fun. I changed my menu plan a lot due to company. But some things I kept the same.
On Tuesday I did make my pizza dinner and it was delish..
On Wednesday I had a BBQ planned but hubby ended up not being up to it. He had a long day and wanted something simple. So my plan B was, hot dogs.
On Thursday I was planning to have a couple of my freezer meals. I woke up to a cold day and more snow and a pot of chili sounded so much better..
Friday we had the leftovers and on Saturday our company arrived.
I had a Costco lasagna that I made along with french bread and a salad. Since I was having a few people over (mostly family), I decided to go ahead make a crockpot full of teriyaki meatballs. I had purchased the frozen meatballs from Costco and put 3lbs in the crockpot and made a double batch of THIS teriyaki sauce, poured it over and let them cook on high for about 3 or 4 hours. I also made rice in my Instant Pot to go along with this.
This all turned out really good. I was so occupied with company that I didn't get a picture. The next day I took a pic of some of the leftovers..
We had a lovely visit and I was so happy to have chosen Costco lasagna and the frozen meatballs for easy meal prep.
Sunday's meal was also a change up. Our guests had been in Seattle at Pikes Place Market and purchased a fresh salmon and brought it with them. We had more people join us and bbq'd the salmon. It was amazing! I served roasted potatoes, roasted asparagus, and french bread with it. Once again my houseful of people was where my attention was focused. My husband bbq/smoked it for about 2 hours on a really low heat. He had a little charcoal in the grill along with some alder wood. I've never had salmon done like that before and I have to say it was the best tasking salmon I've ever had. I did snap this pic of half of the salmon..
Now onto this weeks plan..
Monday: Leftovers! I seriously have enough leftovers to last us for the next two nights. So other then making a salad to go along with it all, that is the plan.
Wednesday: Asian Chicken Potsticker Soup. I have the chicken broth and chicken in the freezer ready for this. I'll serve crackers and salad on the side.
Friday: Fried sausages, cabbage & egg noodles. I have one package of Aidell's Sausage in the fridge to use for this. I'll add a side salad to round out the meal.
Sunday: Split pea soup. I had this on my menu last week, and I'll try and get made again this week.
That should do it for us. Hope you have a great week!
