Meal Plan 06/17/2018 - 06/22/2018

We're in the middle of a bit of a heatwave so this week's meals are (hopefully) not going to be too hot for the kitchen. Today is my meal prep day so I made a giant pot of spaghetti sauce early this morning before it got too hot (Pops takes it for daycare lunch and we use the leftovers in various ways). 


Father's Day: Devilled eggs, sous vide New York strip steak finished on a screaming hot grill and served with an herby, lemony compound butter, Smitten Kitchen's slow-roasted tomatoes on top of baby greens that have been dressed with lemon juice and olive oil and topped with a healthy crumble of goat cheese, and sauteed asparagus with lemon. Smitten Kitchen's strawberry summer cake served with fresh whipped cream for dessert. 

Monday: Michigans using leftover spaghetti sauce. Served with sliced cucumber and carrots and a homemade dill dip. 

Tuesday: Giant green salads topped with leftover steak, slow-roasted tomatoes, goat cheese, etc. 

Wednesday: Some sort of chicken skewer done on the barbecue with lots of bell peppers, red onion, and grape tomatoes. Served with Mexican Street Corn Salad (made allergy-friendly with greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise). 

Thursday: Leftovers! 

Friday: I'm going to try to figure out carnitas in the Instant Pot because I blew up my slow cooker a few months ago in a devastating baked beans disaster. If I'm successful I'll serve on taco chips with a lime crema, fresh guacamole, and salsa. If I'm unsuccessful we'll order pizza.

What's on your menu this week? Did you do something special for Father's Day?
