Meal Plan Monday

Okay- hopefully I will be back on schedule for a meal plan beginning this week!

So here is my plan...........

Monday - lasagna, salad, fruit and garlic toast
Tuesday - Pork Loin, Baked Potatoes, Broccoli, Fruit
Wednesday - Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and Fruit
Thursday - Crunchy Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese & Peas
Friday - FAMILY GAME NIGHT- mom bringing chili, me hotdogs, chips & condiments (including slaw)
Saturday - Leftovers
Sunday- BBQ Chicken Wings, green beans, corn, bread

Okay- I am admitting I have never made Slaw............ I know, I know how awful is that! :) So I need a suggestion for a slaw recipe that is good to put on hot dogs. I will be honest I am tempted to purchase slaw from a local restaurant, so someone please tell me I can do this and it is not as hard as I think it is!

So, anyone else working hard on a meal plan this week?
You can check out other meal plans over at Meal Plan Monday

I made a new slaw tonight that was super easy. Comes from a Gluten Free Cookbook, I just checked out from the Library.
1lb of finely sliced cabbage
1/2 c cream (can use evap milk)
1/2 t salt
2T cider Vinegar
1/3 c sugar~we found it a touch to sweet though
Mix together and let set in the fridge. Even over night the recipe said.
However for "sandwich" slaw I add yellow mustard to give it a bit more bite. That's how I make it to top pulled pork.
~so try adding some yellow mustard to the above recipe for hot dog topping.

We love slaw here, but there isn't really a recipe. I take some mayo, vinegar, sugar & cracked pepper, mix it to taste. Pour over shredded cabbage. It is can do it! Also, it's super cheap if you buy a head of cabbage and shred it yourself!
