The Weekly Meal Plan for November 5 is celebrating the triumphant return of the McRib. Yes, that’s right. The McRib is back at everyone’s favorite fast-food restaurant. We created our own version which, honestly, is so much better!

Technically the McRib is using Leftover ingredients from our Low and Slow Pork Ribs recipe from last week’s meal plan. Our Epic Cook Up is one of our all-time favorites – a Classic Chicken and Leek Pie

There really is no better side dish for a beautiful pie than our Classic Mashed Potatoes which we’ve humbly stated are the best ever! They will also go well as a side to the Homemade McRib as a more than suitable alternative to French fries

You do need to eat healthily this week too of course, so we’ve got you covered. A vibrant and delicious Strawberry Romaine Salad with Green Apple hits the spot. Rounding out the week is a fun dish from Thailand. Our Tom Kha Gai, or Thai Coconut Soup with Shrimp

Happy Cooking!
