For many is a shorter work week – and I’m pretty sure everyone is ready for it. We are keeping up with meals at home this week, and we’re making progress to use all we have in our freezer and our refrigerator items – there will be space for new items soon enough! Here’s what we have on tap for Week 3 of 2022:
Butter Chicken from What’s Gaby Cooking Eat What You Want Cookbook. Comfort food with a fresh approach. We are expanding our horizons a bit with some more unique meals these cold and boring days. Homemade roti, warm chicken and rice, served with a side salad – can’t go wrong!
Skillet Chicken Fajitas from The Comfortable Kitchen Cookbook. Easy and so good! We are keeping it simple without all of the sides and toppings – but I support everyone adding cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce and carbs! This is a great addition to lunches throughout the week.
Egg Lemon Soup from The Defined Dish Cookbook. Because soup season is only so long – and we like to keep things fresh and new around here. This is perfect for dinner – you can even add some chicken or garlic bread (we did not) and of course, lunches and quick dinners throughout the week.
Pork Miso Ramen from The Comfortable Kitchen Cookbook. Every weeknight meal plan has to have a bowl – and tonight we’re bringing on a ramen dish for everyone to make their own. similar to many of our meal options, we like to make a base that can be adjusted to everyone’s liking, without too much extra work! Some of us enjoy a spicier ramen than others, and some of us like ALL THE TOPPINGS! What are some of your favorite “add-ons”?
Veggie Pad See Ew from the Half Baked Harvest Super Simple Cookbook. This is one of my favorite things to order from our local take-out place. And Fridays are meant for takeout – or takeout made at home. For a short week, this was a long one – so we are ready for a bowl of noodles and vegetables STAT.
We’ve got some fun appetizer recipes we are going to give a try for the weekend – we’ll keep everyone posted on what we like, what we might make differently and what will be new to the rotation!
FAMILY DAY – as always, we’ll be getting together with the family – try a few new board games, and likely serve something as test for a weeknight meal to share with all of you!
Be sure to follow our Instagram page for all of the meals we prepare and let us know if you add any of them to your own meal plans! As always, we are here to help you if you need any ideas for quicker, easier and special meal plans this week or in the future!
