My Meal Plan:

  1.  London Broil – I’ll do this as a blog post.  It’s a terrific way to do “steak” especially on the cheap.  It’s one large steak you marinate, grill and then cut into thin strips.  That’s terrific for dinner alone, but also makes leftovers for next day salads or sandwiches.  These steaks freeze fabulously so I’ll pick up 4 extras and foodsaver/freeze them.
  2. Chicken Caesar Salad – It’s simple and cheap (hey, and healthy!).  I like to grill chicken breasts and cook a few too many.  This makes a quick lunch salad super easy.
  3. Toasted Ravioli – I’m not feeling super inspired by the sales so this is an easy freezer meal.  I’ve got some of those (from BOGO sales obviously) in the freezer.  It’s a saucy pasta dish with a loose tomato and cream sauce.
  4. Chicken Sate Skewers – grilled chicken is simple, so we’ll amp it up and keep it simple.  Coconut milk marinated with an amazing peanut dipping sauce.  Yum.

    Toasted rav I just have to finesse (I make it differently every time – was that one can or two…meh, whatever) but I’ll make sure to get grill pizza and london broil up asap since those are great summer bits!
