5 Meals - 1 Hour, Week 9

Week 8 was one of my favorite - by far! Everything was new and tasty (except for the one substitution we had).

Here's my rundown of week 8:

Monday - Southern Pork Chops
*Yummy! The only advice I would give is to be sure to use thicker pork chops to avoid drying them out.

Tuesday - Garlicky Baked Shrimp
*We actually made spaghetti this night... I have been super busy (Thank you Lord!) with my new Thirty-One business, so Jamie was a trooper and helped me out this night, since I couldn't find Shrimp within our budget.

Wednesday - Grilled Bacon Chicken
*What's not to love?

Thursday - Ham and Cheese Sliders
*These were FANTASTIC! I would recommend basting the mixture over the tops, rather than pouring it over. The bottom of the sliders got a little soggy.

Friday - Dinner with friends!

I'm not going to lie, this week was kind of nice as there was very little preparation! It's a lot of red meat, but we're trying to use some stuff up from the freezer without making a run to the grocery store. Here's what's on the menu this week:

Monday - Jamie's Famous Spaghetti (requested by Sean) :-)

Tuesday - Breaded Chicken Sandwiches (frozen patties that we found at GFS... nice and thick. Not your typical small, flat patty! And the buns were given to me by my friend Melissa, who had several left over from a party this weekend!)

Wednesday - Meatloaf (MY recipe... requested by Jamie!) :-)

Thursday - Meatball subs (using day-old Jimmy John's bread... mmm!)

Friday - Eat out!

Until next week, happy cooking!
