Easy Weeknight Dinner Ideas

Hey guys! I thought I would do a little catch up from the week of what I have been cooking; Pretty much easy and fast. I’m not going to lie, when the girls request cereal and eggs, I am happy to oblige. This week has been all about cheer. I know, when is it not, but today Becca had a competition (FIRST PLACE!) so evenings have been dictated around that. A night out here, a bowl of cereal and a frozen waffle there; it has been busy! BUT here are a few fun and simple easy weeknight meals when you run out of milk and the spaghetti o supply has been demolished!

Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta-  Rotisserie Chicken, cooked pasta, store bought basil, and a small container of heavy cream. Just cook the pasta dice up some chicken. Add it in a bowl and slowly add in your pesto and cream with a bit of heavy starchy pasta water until desired coating and creaminess! Make extra for some leftovers for lunch! Yum!img_6551-1

Lunch and Dinner  Remix- So the hubby and I made a bunch of chicken, red peppers, yellow rice, and black beans to take to work. Pretty straight forward, but the next day for dinner, I  decided to change it up a bit. I added all of these to a pan and warmed them up. Then I put them in a warm spinach tortilla with some Mexican cheese , sour cream, and avocado. Delicious and healthy!

I had an honor’s breakfast for my students, so I cooked up a few of these delicious frittatas. I also made just a plain cheese one for me and the girls for dinner. Sometimes simplicity and lots of protein are the  best things after a long day. Along with a glass or two of your favorite wine=)

Roasted Red Peppers, Mushrooms, and Sausage (6-8 eggs depending on size)

Weekly Meal Plan 1/7/17

Afternoon guys! The sun is out and the snow is melting fast. We only had a dusting, so no reason really to freak out the way we did, but we never know how the weather in Georgia will be. We still have lots of winter left and possibility of  bad weather, but for now all is just fine.

We went out for brunch this morning to a place called First Watch. I really love it; everything I have gotten there has been super healthy and yummy. Everyone else in the family likes it fine, but I get to add it in to the brunch rotation occasionally. img_6340

Then we were off to the store. We haven’t been to the store as a family in a few weeks and our pantry and fridge were pretty bare, so we loaded up on a ton of food for the week.

Here is our meal plan for the week. I am going to start adding in our breakfast and lunch plans as well.

Breakfast- Egg and Sausage Burritos, Yogurt Parfaits, Avocado Toast, Cereal, Bagels and Cream Cheese, Oatmeal with milk, fruit, and honey

Lunch- Lime Chicken Bowls (recipe coming soon), Kitchen Sink Salad, leftovers from dinner

Weekly Meal Plan 10/2/16

Hey guys! I hope you had an awesome weekend! Yesterday, we cheered on our teams (even though they all lost), spent quality family time together, and I met up with an old high school friend for dinner (Thai) and drinks (wine bar). Today was all about sleeping in, brunch, and lazy afternoons. Tonight the girls are having a picnic in front of the TV eating cheese and meat cracker sandwiches (think Lunchables) and I am creating some veggie dishes for myself to have for lunches for the week. Here is how I envision this week going down…

Sunday- Making Veggie Cauliflower Rice and Spaghetti Squash to keep on hand in the fridge for this week

Monday- Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry with Fresh Noodles (a few versions up on the blog, but I am thinking of a way to make this one kind of different)

Tuesday- Turkey Burgers

Friday- IDK

What are you guys making this week? Share in the comments section!

Weekend Wrap Up and Meal Plan 9/18/16

Long time since I have  blogged last. It has really been a big adjustment this year. Lots of cheer practices, games, work, and busy family stuff going on here. We actually have been eating, but just nothing really new or blog worthy. I am really missing being creative in the kitchen, so I am hoping that I can shake off all the craziness,  get back in the kitchen to relax, and create some fun new dishes!

This weekend the hubby and I went to what we call a Family Dinner with our best friends. It was my girl Jess’ birthday, so we did a lot of fun  “adulting” things 😉 That is all I am going to say about that! The girls had fun at their grandparents house, and Brutus got some doggie play and spa time at Camp Bow Wow. A  fun time was had by all. Today we all chilled, mommy took a much needed nap, and then we shopped for dinners this week.

Here is what is on the game plan…

Tonight- Roasted Chicken Plain and Simple- salt, pepper, olive oil

Monday- Crock Pot BBQ Pork Ribs

Tuesday- Mushroom Risotto

Wednesday- Chicken Pesto Pasta

Thursday- Breakfast for dinner! Maybe french toast or pancakes with eggs?

Friday- Family Night Out- Probably Mexican or Sushi

Enjoy the rest of your night!

Weekly Meal Plan 8/20/16

Hey guys! Hope your weekend is going well! Last night we all decided to go to Mexican for dinner. I got a steak quesadilla and a cheese stuffed poblano. Of course there was chips, queso,  and margaritas involved!img_4783

img_4782

Today has been pretty great! We had to wake up early and take Rebecca to her first game. It was long and hot and we lost in the end, but all the boys played well and the girls stuck with it and cheered with all their heart!040043041

We all came home sweaty and tired. The hubby went and got the two of us some Chinese take-out. The girls wanted Spaghettio’s and grilled cheese, so I made that for them.

The rest of the day has been pretty lazy; naps, lounging around reading and watching TV. Now I am doing some meal planning for the week. This week is going to be crazy! Cheer practice 3 nights as well as Curriculum night for the girls school as well as mine. We will make it through! Here is what is on the menu…

Sat- Chicken & Cherry Tomato Bolognese (Blue Apron Meal)…Super yummy!

img_4807

Sunday- Leftover Chinese (Shrimp Hibachi)

Monday- Teriyaki-Glazed Salmon with Brown Rice

Tuesday- Mini Hamburger Sliders, Fries, and a Veggie

Wednesday- Last week I was going to do Indian, but the girls wanted Pizza and wings, so we did that instead. This week I am getting my Indian (hopefully)!

Thursday-Clean out the fridge night/Pantry Raid

Friday- Family Night Out…this week it was Mexican, so I am thinking we may go to Greek. 

Weekly Meal Plan 8/14/16

Hey friends! Back from the cabin and back to reality! Went to lunch at Mcalister’s Deli with the family then on to Publix for a massive grocery trip. Here is the plan for the week…

Sunday- Tacos

Monday- Chicken Carbonara- made it a few ways before, but I am going to test out a new recipe

Tuesday- Beef Stroganoff 

Wednesday- I have been craving Paneer Tikka Masala and Daal, so I think I will get some Indian takeout and see what spurge the girls want. I am guessing I can tempt them with some Spaghetti O’s and Grilled Cheese. They are pretty easy to please.

Thursday- Pantry Raid! I have some frozen chicken and will have some leftovers and veggies that I will need to use up.

Friday- Family Night Out- – – Maybe a local pizza joint or our favorite Mediterranean place? Only time will tell!

Check out these pretty flowers my parents picked out for Lizzie. I know she loves them!

Meal Plan 7/6/16

The summers are pretty laid-back here. There’s really no plan for the day. We wake up late, eat some cereal, go to the pool, eat sandwiches, and then I try to find something around the house that I can throw together for dinner.

img_3016

That’s how we like it.

BUT the last couple of weeks we have been in vacation mode, and our fridge and pantry were looking pretty bare. I decided to put together a meal plan and head to the store to slowly get our supply back up. Here is what we are planning to eat…

Tuesday-  Beer Battered Cod

Wednesday-Roast Chicken of sort sort….maybe  this recipe?

Thursday- Pork Chops…maybe these?

Friday- Steak Fajitas

I’ll let you know if I change these recipes. I love a good change up!
