Welcome back to this week’s meal plan. We’re here to help you get out of the dinner slump. I know I love finding out what my friends have in regular rotation on their menus.
I like to keep dinner easy, while mixing up the flavors to keep it interesting. The Mediterranean burger for instance. Just by using feta as the cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes, you get a little something different. And it’s not any extra work. Win-win!
Recipes and How-To for Week 55 Meal Plan
Mediterranean Burgers and Fries
As I mentioned above, top your burger with feta and sun-dried tomatoes. For the sauce use either this easy Tzatziki or your favorite hummus.
One of my favorites!
Moroccan Meatballs and Rice
Big Chef Salad
We have some ham in the fridge that we’ll use for Cuban Sandwiches this week as well, and sliced turkey. Add whatever cheese you have, tomato, hard boiled egg, shredded carrots (for my hubby, not me… only food I don’t like), black olives, croutons, and this week we’re putting pomegranate seeds in for a little sweetness.
I found the perfect size flank steak at the store. Cook it in the crock pot using this 4 ingredient universal marinade for 6-8 hours. Right before you eat, saute up some sliced peppers and onions. Cut up an avocado and shred some cheese (or open the bag of shredded cheese). We like to put all the ingredients out and let people build their own fajitas.
This is one of our faves from Trader Joe’s!
Grilled Cuban Sandwiches
Find a nice French hoagie. The loose ones in your local grocery store deli usually work great. Or TJ’s has some nice baguette options. If you have a Foreman grill use that, or you can toast each side on the stove in a skillet. Build the sandwich with yellow mustard on one side and mayo on the other. layer ham, pork, sliced pickle, and Swiss cheese in the middle. Grill and enjoy.
