Here’s another edition of What’s Cooking?, a weekly meal plan providing you some dinner inspiration. Meal planning is an essential organization tool, ensuring that I get dinner on the table each night. I try to find new-to-me recipes that are quick and easy. Hopefully, you will get some ideas for your dinner this week, based on the pictures and reviews of what I made this week!
Monday – I made Easy Beef Picadillo from Savory Tooth. This was easy to make and was really tasty! I had never made, or even eaten, beef picadillo before, but this was good! The kids really liked it as well, minus the green olives. I served it with rice and veggies.
Tuesday – I made Leek-y Chicken and Couscous from Rachael Ray Express Lane Meals. I’ve made this dish before and we enjoyed it. Since it’s quick, easy I decided to put it on rotation again….a couple of years later!
Wednesday – I made Philly Cheese Steak Burgers from Dinner Then Dessert. I omitted the rib eye steak from the recipe. I thought that with the beef patty was a bit much. I discovered that you need a heartier roll than a regular hamburger roll. Ours got a bit soggy and was difficult to hold the burger with the onions and peppers. After making this, I realized that I’ve made a burger like this before, just not this particular recipe. In my opinion, the burger needs more seasoning than just salt and pepper. Burgers tend to be a fairly quick and easy meal. They’re even quicker when the burgers are pre-made the night before and just need to be cooked. I served these burgers with fries.
Thursday – I made 15-minute Sesame Ramen Noodles from How Sweet Eats. This is one of the quickest meals I’ve made and it’s tasty! I used four packages of ramen noodles for the four of us and there were no leftovers. I could have probably used one or two more packages of ramen, since there were hardly any noodles left for seconds. I served this with edamame.
Friday – We had a ton of fries left over from Wednesday’s burger night. My husband decided to make Nacho Fries for dinner. Unfortunately, they weren’t that great. It was a great idea, but I guess poorly executed. He add shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, chopped tomato and sour cream.
