So first off I want to apologize, I meant to keep this a weekly posting to give you all dinner ideas for planning for the week. I ended up moving over 1000 miles and packing/cleaning became a priority and I had to set my blog on the back burner for a little bit. Anyway, so I’m back now and I’m hoping to keep this going for you! I know it helps me to plan dinners for the week. I’m going grocery shopping today, so I figured I’d share what we are making for the week!
1- Stuffed Shells and Garlic Bread – it’s an easy combination of spinach, ricotta, mozzarella, italian seasonings and an egg, stuffed in a pasta shell nestled in marinara sauce, and topped with more mozzarella. We are having some garlic bread with it to dip in the yummy sauce.
2- Tuna Noodle Casserole – another easy dinner, bag of cooked egg noodles, 2 cans of cream of mushroom, 1 can of drained peas, 2 cans of drained tuna, 1 container of french fried onions, 1/2 cup of milk, salt, and lots of black pepper. Mix together and bake for 20 min.
3- Burrito Bowls – recipe is there, just click on the title. Easy to make and the kids love them. I like this one pot dish.
4- Breakfast Burritos – potatoes, onions, peppers, sausage, eggs and cheese. Cook it all up, top with sour cream, salsa, & sriracha!
5- Sausage, Potato, & Kale Soup, also known as Zuppa Toscana at Olive Garden – I will be using the Pioneer Woman’s recipe for this dish.
6- Mandarin Orange Chicken & Fried Rice – I buy the Orange Chicken in the bag from Trader Joes, and then I make fried rice with white rice I cook the day before. I don’t have a recipe for the rice, but there are packets you can buy at the store to help you out, or you can find a recipe online.
7- Italian Chicken Cutlets, Mashed Potatoes, & Green Beans – I just bread the chicken with flour, egg, and Italian bread crumbs then fry in some olive oil in a skillet.
Let me know if you try any of these for dinner! Thanks!
