Meal Plan Monday: February

Every Sunday while making my plan I flip over to the weather channel and see what the weather is going to look like this week. I like to plan our meals around the weather, there's nothing worse then BBQing in the rain or sipping on hot soup during a heat wave, I thought this up one night while watching Lee BBQ in the snow.

So this week here in the Greater Vancouver Area (BC) we have SUN until Wednesday (although sun means no clouds and no clouds means COLD temps), cloudy on Thursday and possibly snowing on Friday.
So here's how our week looks:

Lunch: Ham and Swiss sandwich, granola and yogurt.
Dinner: Ginger Lime Chicken with Rice and Bok Choy

Lunch: Tuna Fish Sandwich
Dinner: Short ribs with Cabbage

WED:  Max has a vet appt today! He gets his teeth cleaned so he'll be sleepy from the anesthesia, a super simple dinner will be in the works for tonight.
Lunch: Leftover Short ribs and Cabbage
Pick up Roasted Chicken from the Italian Market on the way home from the Vet
Dinner: Roasted Chicken Paninis with Tomatos and Motzerella. Homemade Tomato Soup on the Side. I use this RECIPE.

Lunch: Salad with Tuna and a Boiled Egg with homemade dressing
Dressing Recipe (if the Manor had a signature Dressing this would be it :)
2 cloves of garlic
a teaspoon or so Dijon Mustard
a couple squirts of Worcestershire Sauce
the juice of half a lemon
just under a 1/4 cup of red wine vinager
Wisk together,  then whisk in the olive oil, about a quarter cup.
Season with Salt and Pepper YUM!
Dinner: Chicken a la King  Using the Leftover Chicken  from Wed.

FRIDAY: (Possibly Snowing)
Lunch: Leftover Chicken a la King
Dinner: Roasted Corn and Red Pepper Chowder.

So there's how our First week in February looks!
I finally finished sewing the Library Curtains, I LOVE the way they turned out and I can't wait to share them with you tomorrow :)


  1. a lot of chicken and/or tuna

  2. Can't wait to see the curtains. In the meantime, I may make that soup tonight! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Two cans of tuna a week is more then safe for an adult male in a week, it's also very low in fat. And Chicken is what's on sale at the grocery store this week! I plan around sales :)
    The Soup is super yummy I hope you enjoy it:)

  4. Yum! Kylee is due for shots too...and not too excited about it either!!! We've had a rough couple days around here (oldest ended up in ER yesterday due to migraine associated with sinus, and now you know who is home with one too...sympathy pains!) So, quick easy dinners are a must the next few days!!!

  5. Short ribs and cabbage? Do share the recipe if you have time! Love your Monday meal plans Ash!

  6. Thanks for sharing your meal plans. I tried the tomato soup recipe you linked to and my family LOVES it! Thanks so much for the reference!

  7. Yes, Ash; I second the inclusion of recipes for the cooking-challenged. :)

    And thanks for the note on facebook. It made me feel a lot better.



We're here to lend an ear,
So leave a word and you'll be heard!
