Here are two weeks of our meal plan in case you need some ideas. Sometimes it takes me forever to come up with ideas and I love asking other people what they are cooking. None of them are my original recipes but I added some notes of what I did.
|I won't attempt food photography. BUT I will give you a cute bridal shower gift idea. Get a Kate Spade apron and|
have it monogrammed in the bride's new initials! The conversions on the bottom are an added bonus!
1 Trader Joe's frozen crust. They are so much better than pillsbury and I have a feeling if I look at the nutritional values I would know why.
1/2 cup milk
I usually vary my mix ins but our favorites are ham, cheese, onion, mushroom,and spinach.
Pre heat the oven to 350 (you can bump this up a little if you are in a rush) and roll out crust in a pie tin. In a mixing bowl whisk together eggs and milk. I like it to be a little less milky so I usually use a 1/2 cup of milk or less. After this I season the mix with salt,pepper, and garlic. If I have time I love to sauté the mix in's in a skillet until the ingredients are soft. I add cheese and whatever mix in's I have to the eggs mixture, pour it in tin the pie crust, and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the middle is set.
I love this as a Monday meal because it makes a great breakfast throughout the week. If I am really ambitious I make two!
Tuesday: Skinny Taste Bahn Mi Rice Bowls. I used the pre chopped crunch mix from Trader Joe's instead of cabbage. Way easier and still yummy!
Wednesday: Goop breakfast bowls. Quinoa + babies= mess.
Thursday: Slow cooker Turkey Chili. So easy and different than other chilis I make. It was also pretty thick so it wasn't too messy for Isla (she eats what we do)
Saturday: We tried M Shack! Which is basically the southern version of Shake Shack, it was good!
Sunday: Brussel Sprout Pasta So we didn't love this very much and I was so pumped for it. I think I would have double the amount of sprouts and halved the balsamic vinegar to make it better. We had a bacon spinach salad with dijon dressing and that made up for it!
Monday: Soulful Chicken noodle soup with cornbread.The prep took about 5 minutes. I substituted mushrooms for the celery, used boneless breast, seasoned progresso chicken broth, and grabbed a poultry seasoning package in the fresh herb section. This is a crockpot soup!
Tuesday: Skinny Taste chicken tacos. I will not be making homemade pico de gallo and I will add rice to make bowls for Isla and I.
Wednesday: Turkey Burgers. Hopefully these are good and I don't miss my chuck burgers too much!
Thursday: Leftovers. I'm leaving for a weekend in Austin with friends so this makes it easy for Craig!
Friday: Spaghetti. This is a great recipe for husbands! I don't love spaghetti so I tend to make it when I am about to leave so he has a TON of leftovers. Its pretty straight forward for him to make it on his own (which he will be doing). I have made it without the ground beef so I could just toss in frozen meatballs (which later turned into meatball subs).
Saturday: Grilled Sausages, Sautéed Onions and Peppers with Fries. This used to be a pretty standard Saturday meal around my house growing up. It was easy to make more of in case my brothers or I brought friends home.
So there you have it! What are some of your favorite week night meals? I am always on the hunt for new recipes and would love to hear!
