Saturday
Pork Roast
Baked Potatoes 
Green Beans

Sunday
This is a super easy recipe and you can thaw the shrimp in a bowl of cold water in less than 15 minutes.  So put the shrimp in to thaw before you go change your clothes from work. 

Shrimp Scampi
1 pkg (16 oz) frozen raw shrimp (31-35 per lb), thawed, peeled, and patted dry
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Melt butter and mix with pressed garlic; set aside. Heat oil in a large fry pan (cast iron is best). Toss shrimp with flour and salt until coated, then add to heated oil. Cook shrimp on first side until pink color creeps about 1/3 of the way up the side, then turn over. Cook until thoroughly cooked through. Add butter and garlic mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes, stirring gently. Serve immediately over pasta.

Pasta
Salad
Orange Fluff
1 c sour cream
1 package orange sugar-free jello
8 oz container cool-whip
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
Combine sour cream and jello powder, fold in cool-whip and then oranges. 

Monday
Aussie Chicken
Boneless chicken pieces
Bbq sauce
Bacon bits
Grated cheddar cheese
Grill chicken pieces, basting in bbq sauce.  In the last few minutes of cooking, top with bacon bits (the real stuff only, please) and then grated cheese.  These are ready when the cheese is melty. 
Rice
Broccoli
Smore Tortillas
Spread peanut butter on flour tortillas, top with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips.  Roll each tortilla.  You can microwave if you’d rather, or wrap in foil and place on grill while you eat. 

Tuesday
Pork-Potato Goulash
2 c diced roast pork
1 onion, chopped
2 c diced cooked potatoes
2T butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup
