It’s easy to get into a rut with our family’s meals. For four weeks I am posting my menu, links to the recipes I use, and hopefully giving you some fresh, new ideas for your kitchen. These are recipes my family has loved over and over, and I hope they give you some inspiration to try some new things with your family!
Learn more about how this series came to be and what to expect!
Saturday: black bean soup & quesadillas
Sunday: grilled marinated chicken (store bought Asian marinade), fried rice, and (frozen) egg rolls
Monday: tacos made with crockpot salsa chicken
Tuesday: grilled sausage, roasted asparagus, and oven-roasted red potatoes (potatoes are cut into eighths, tossed with olive oil & creole seasoning, and roasted at 400 degrees for 40 minutes, stirring once halfway through)
Wednesday: BBQ turkey meatballs (I make this meatloaf recipe into meatballs and omit the bacon), mashed potatoes, salad
Thursday: zucchini turkey burgers, no side. I was tired!
Friday: orange chicken (frozen from Trader Joe’s), rice, steamed broccoli Fridays are pretty casual in our house. Usually either take-out or something requiring little to no effort. Because it’s the weekend!
