Menu Plan 8/15-8/21

Saturday:  BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
This is left over from the Crockpot Pork Roast from last week. I think I'll use the BBQ sauce recipe from What a Crock!

SundayMediterranean Tuna Noodle Casserole (review)
I'm thinking about making the full recipe so I'll have one to put in the freezer.  I know the recipe calls for tuna in oil, but I'm not sure if I can do it. 

Monday:  Jambalaya
Nice one-pot meal to use up some of that chicken sausage 8pck thawing in my fridge!

Tuesday:  Jamaican Beef Stew w/ Mashed Potatoes (review)
I'll probably do this in a crockpot and obviously omit the soy sauce...maybe sub in some worcestershire (maybe anchovy paste??).  Soy sauce is really hard to replace - you can cover the salt obviously, but it's tricky to find something that suitably brings that depth of flavor. 

Also, yes, I know stew isn't exactly summer-y esp. with the kinds of temps we've been having.  But my theory is that around here if you wait for "stew"/"chili" weather you'll be waiting a long time, and since those are some of our favorite things to eat we just eat them whenever.  At least in the crockpot the heat in the kitchen is somewhat contained.

Wednesday:  Tilapia w/ Black Bean and Corn Salad
Tilapia's on sale again at SunHarvest for $2.99/lb. 

Thursday:  Mushroom Risotto & Salad w/ Mandarin Oranges & Strawberries

Friday: Dinner Out
Our anniversary is this week and my in-laws are getting back after a 3 week trip, so I'm slotting in a dinner out in anticipation that we'll go out or to their place at least once this week.
