Meal Plan – May 8th – May 14th


  • Sunday – Brunch: Oconomowoc Golf Club / Dinner: Chicken Bacon Ranch Salads with Blue Cheese Crumbles and Cheddar Cheese Rolls

     

  • Monday – Dinner: Hoisin Veggie Stir-Fry with Broccoli, Snap Peas, and Bell Peppers over Rice with Kung Pao Beef, Pan-fried noodles, Egg Rolls, and Crab Rangoon from Emperor’s Kitchen … This is by far the best Chinese food in the area. They have two locations, but the Delafield restaurant is the closest for us. I’ve always loved everything I’ve had from here.

     

  • Tuesday – Dinner: Fish Tacos, Chorizo Enchiladas, Chips, Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, and Margaritas at Seester’s Mexican Cantina … I loved my fish tacos, but Jim was just so-so on the enchiladas until he added some of Seester’s special sauces. This is definitely a restaurant that greatly benefits from its location. It’s not the best Mexican food I’ve ever had, but it’s consistently good and always enjoyed while sitting in the summer sun across from Pewaukee Lake.

     

  • Wednesday – Dinner: Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads and Mushroom Bruschetta with Mozzarella … Total leftover meal perfect for a night on my own.

     

  • Thursday – Dinner: Big Mixed Green Salad with Oven-Roasted Chicken Breast, Ranch Dressing, and Tabasco … Big may have been an understatement. I think I had 12 servings of veggies when all was said and done. J

     

  • Friday – Dinner: Out to Park Avenue Pizza for Haystack Onion Rings, BBQ Roast Beef, Grilled Chicken Sandwich, and a Kids Mini-Pizza with Sausage … I’m becoming a big fan of this local Restaurant. A family friendly place, with fresh ingredients, a large selection of wines and beers, and the BEST fried chicken you’ve ever had.

     

  • Saturday – Camarones a la Diabla, Mexican Sour Cream Rice, Refried Beans with Bacon, Tortillas, Chips, Salsa, Guacamole, and Margaritas! … What’s a better word than amazing? Let me know, and then I’ll use it to describe this sauce. It was a little work, but not a big deal to pull together on a Saturday afternoon, and it made a large batch, so I froze the leftovers and will use with chicken or pork next time. Spicy, but not so much that you can’t eat it, or tone down to taste with a little sour cream and/or guacamole. The rest of the meal was repeats that we LOVE. Fantastic Saturday night meal.

     

  • Other Cooking & Baking: Chocolate Lard Cake, Loaded Baked Potato Dip , Trail Mix Cookies … The cake was a request from Jim’s Grandma for her 80th birthday. I heard no complaints and received praise, so I’ll take that. The dip was delish, and would be good on a baked potato as well. The cookies were an experiment that I’ll post sometime soon.
