Happy Victoria Day! For those of you who don’t know, todayis a holiday here in Canada – the celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday. Traditionally, the unofficial start of summer but we really haven’t had the weather for celebrating. Still, we did take a good break and even (finally!) managed to see Avengers Endgame. It was so good but whew, I am exhausted!
This week’s meal plan is continuing in hopes of some lovely summer-like weather and a chance to do some grilling. So far, we’re having too much rain but the forecast is indicating more but I am ever hopeful!

This Week’s Meals
You will find that most of these meals are under $10 based on prices (sale prices where possible) in London, Ontario, Canada. We are feeding a family of 4 – 3 adults and 1 toddler, all with healthy appetites. We generally have some leftovers from our meals and if these aren’t being used as part of another meal, they are used for lunches throughout the week.
Prices are based mostly on those at No Frills and FreshCo, the two grocery stores we frequent most often with an occasional shop at Loblaws for some of the more gourmet items (and because it’s just my favorite store – it even has a Starbucks!).
Grilled lamb lollipops with garlic herb rub, Amish warm potato salad, tossed green salad
Chicken and white bean burgers (recipe calls for turkey but we substitute chicken because we prefer it), raw veggies and Ranch dip
Sloppy Joes, coleslaw, pickles
Grilled lemonade chicken (BBQ), bacon and cheddar macaroni salad, grilled asparagus, carrots
Neapolitan layered pasta casserole, Caesar salad, garlic bread
BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches (FF) (SC), coleslaw, baked beans, pickles
