Hello & happy almost 4th of July! I wanted to share a recipe with my weekly meal plan today because we actually ate it twice this weekend and I figured it would also be perfect to share for the upcoming holiday weekend! It's a recipe I've shared before on the blog but it was due for an update--partly because the ingredients have changed slightly and partly because there aren't any pictures with the old post. For some reason, all of the pictures from the beginning of my blog were removed and I can't figure out how to get them back. So! Here's what we're having for dinner this week (make sure you go link up with Organizing Junkie to share yours) as well as the recipe for one of my favorite side dishes--crunchy Asian slaw.
Sunday - Burgers on the grill, roasted red potatoes, crunchy Asian slaw
Monday - Turkey, cream cheese, and pesto stuffed shells, broccoli, rolls
Tuesday - Tacos and rice
Wednesday - Spaghetti and meatballs, salad, garlic knots
Thursday - Chicken, black bean, and salsa bake
And now, for the Asian slaw recipe. I first had this several years ago at my husband's Aunt Sylvia's house. It was so good and when she shared the recipe with me, I couldn't believe how easy it was! I've been making it as a side dish to go with hamburgers & hot dogs ever since and it's always a hit. My sister in law makes it now too and this weekend, she brought it to my in-laws for a cookout and then last night, I made it to go along with burgers on the grill and roasted red potatoes. Give it a try this weekend for your 4th of July celebration, it will go great with barbecue, burgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken, you name it! Hope you enjoy :)
