Last week I came up with this great idea; to select a cook book and plan my weekly meals out of the cookbook for some variety and new dishes. Brilliant, right?
The dinners for this week, though not completely following the recipes, were Jamie Oliver inspired. I've got an old cook book of his and didn't really like the recipes in it, but put a twist on a few for our family this week.
The other theme for the week, that came about after the fact, was onion rings. More on that later.
Monday: Chicken Fajitas (garlic and lime)
Tuesday: Cheese steaks (this was Jamie Oliver inspired - used a rib eye steak pounded flat instead of thin sliced deli meat. Much, much tastier.)
Wednesday: Burgers and fries and homemade onion rings
Thursday: Breaded pork chops and green beans
Friday: was supposed to be pesto pasta but ended up being Smash Burger instead (and for me, more onion rings)
