So, if you saw last week’s menu, you may be thinking that this week’s menu looks awfully familiar! Last week ended up being a bit crazy. We’ve been having my mother in law stay with us for the past couple of weeks, my sister in law was also in town, I started back to work, and I ended up with a bad head cold! The blessing through that week was the fact that my mother in law took it upon herself to buy groceries and cook a meal each nightfor us all! It was great being able to rest my weary body.

Okay, so this week’s menu:

* Quebecois Chicken (recipe below), salad, mashed potatoes
* Veggie stir fry served over rice
* Marinated Pork Chops, roasted potatoes, vegetables
* Beef Vegetable soup, buns or bread
* Veggie Chicken Pitas

Quebecois Chicken (from The Big Cook)

2 lbs chicken pieces
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 Tbsp cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp ginger, ground
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a bowl. Mix together well, then pour over the chicken to marinate. This recipe is great to put into freezer bags to freeze, just pull it out when you want it!

Cooking options:

Oven: 350 degrees covered for 1 hour, uncover last 15 minutes.
Slow cooker: 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high
BBQ: Medium – high until middle of meat is white. Turn frequently.
