Two Mondays ago, I shared a two-week meal plan with the idea that I’d only have to head back to the store to get dairy and produce. It worked! We had a rough weekend eating the dregs of our produce, but we made it through. This morning, I shopped for the next two weeks, mostly non-dinner foods since I have boneless skinless chicken and precooked beef in the freezer.
Sunday–Taco Cornbread Casserole
Meatless Monday–Tortellini with pesto and peas, salad
Tuesday–Lemon & Dill Crockpot Chicken, brown rice and broccoli
Wednesday–Spaghetti & Meatballs, angel hair pasta and homemade breadsticks
Thursday–Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches and salad
Friday–Baked Mac & Cheese Casserole with broccoli
Saturday–Chicken & Rosemary Stew in the Deep Covered Baker (a Pampered Chef recipe)
Sunday–Chicken Sausage Pesto Pita Pizzas and veggie tray (carrots, celery, cucumbers and dip)
Meatless Monday–Spinach & Feta Omelets and Rosemary Potatoes
Tuesday–Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup and cornbread
Wednesday–Baked Ziti (from the freezer) and salad
Thursday–Slow Cooker Pork Ragu & Fettuccine and broccoli
Friday–Eating out (my mom is visiting)
Saturday–Chicken & Green Chile Casserole and salad
I’m still using my favorite get-dinner-on-the-table tricks–like setting up the slow cooker in the morning so there’s no prep to do at dinner hour, doubling up on recipes to freeze the other half for a busy night, and cooking ahead.
What tricks help you get dinner on the table?
