I’ll file this under the better late than never category. Here is our very first, one week of meals! Enjoy!
Chicken Quesadillas. Sundays we typically go for an easy meal. For easy chicken quesadillas I chop up chicken tenders and cook them with lawry’s (or target brand) mesquite marinade. We then make them on flour tortillas, with shredded cheese, sour cream, and some hot sauce.
Our side for this meal was: salad (romaine, tomatoes, cheese, croutons)
The Pioneer Woman’s Mini Meatball Sandwiches. Super A loves meatballs and this was a fairly easy meal to put together. I made the sandwiches for my husband and I, but for Super A I served him the meatballs and roll separately.
Our side for this meal was: chips and mandarin oranges (for Super A).
Tales of a Peanut Crock Pot Cream Cheese and Black Bean Chicken. My sister and I absolutely love this meal! It is so simple and great to put in the crock pot at the beginning of the day and then it is ready by dinner time. We either roll this in flour tortillas, or eat it with chips.
Our side for this meal was: watermelon wedges
The Pioneer Woman’s Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. This was my fancy meal for the week. Roasting and peeling the peppers was harder than I had anticipated, but it turned out really yummy. Super A was not a fan, but we loved it!
Our side for this meal was: salad (leaf lettuce from our garden, tomatoes, red onion, croutons, Parmesan cheese) and the left-over dinner rolls from our meatball sandwiches.
I gave my last final exam this night, so it was Tyson’s frozen chicken nuggets and Ore-Ida french fries for Super A, and hamburgers from Sonic for my husband and I.
Side: Does mozzarella sticks from Sonic count?? HA!
Our friends Carly and BJ came over to our house for dinner and game night and brought Marco’s pizza. We had the garden pizza (super yum!) and half pepperoni and half cheese.
My husband made beef and veggie stir-fry. We started getting this new magazine in our newspaper called Dash and have tried a few of the recipes out of it. The link for the recipe is above on dash.com. He leaves out the mushrooms and substitutes with fresh peppers, or frozen vegetable mix. He also does about half the Hoisin sauce that is called for. I would highly recommend it with half the Hoisin sauce because we tried it with the whole serving and it is a little strong.
Sides: Cooked rice. My husband makes the best rice, I am terrible at making rice, but his always tastes great!!
Stay tuned for next week, featuring my sister’s meals! 🙂
