Menu Plan Week of 3/9

This week's meal plan gives us a nice variety of chicken, beef, pork and seafood, and is all relatively easy, for just about $26.

One tip for using beef in wraps, skillet dishes, etc.--As a time saver, when I catch sirloin on sale, I bring it home, cut it up into small bite size pieces, and put about 3/4lb. into each freezer bag. If I know the specific purpose, I go ahead and add the marinade then, and then pop in the freezer. The night before I plan to make the dish, I pop the meat in the fridge, and when I'm ready to cook, I have the meat cut, marinated and ready to go! It's a real time saver for week night cooking.

Sounds yummy!! I'm planning one of your recipes this week - the one with the pork ribs and the orange marmalade. I guess I better finish up my own menu plan soon! :-)
