Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a nice weekend! It is time once again for another weekly meal plan. I hope our menu gives you some dinner inspiration. It’s always fun to try a new recipe or cuisine. If you haven’t in awhile, I challenge you to give it a try! Here’s a look at what was on our menu this past week.
Saturday – My husband and I got a rare date night out and met up with his brother for a long over-due dinner. We went to Rivermarket Bar and Kitchen. I had these Scallops with Wild Mushroom and Butternut Squash Risotto.
Sunday – My husband “made” fish and chips. Actually, he heated up some Gorton’s fish patties and fries. It was a quick and easy meal and I didn’t have to cook. So, a win for me!
Monday – I made Shrimp Scampi Garlic Bread Pizza from I Wash You Dry. This dinner was so good! My daughter, who says she doesn’t like shrimp had seconds of this and complimented me on how good it was! Instead of using grated parm, I sprinkled shredded mozzarella on top. I served this with Caesar salad.
Tuesday – I made Reuben Grilled Cheese from Damn Delicious. I didn’t make these in a waffle maker, like the recipe recommends. They were still delicious and another dinner winner this week! These were so easy to make too. I served them with fries.
Wednesday – I made Potsticker Noodle Bowls from Iowa Girl Eats. I used some rice vermicelli noodles that I had instead of the noodles recommended. I’ve made Egg Roll in a Bowl before which, I’ve posted on the blog. I think the Egg Roll in a Bowl is more flavorful than this recipe. However, the kids really enjoyed this. This is another quick and easy recipe.
Thursday – I made Crockpot Creamy Cashew Chicken from Half Baked Harvest. This required a little bit of prep in the morning, have to make the seasoning paste. Unfortunately, I wasn’t wowed by this. Overall, I found it just okay. I was happy that both kids both ate it without complaint. I served with rice and naan.
Friday – Instead of our usual homemade pizza, this week I made Lasagna Soup from Cuisine at Home. I added a bit more pasta than called for. The kids and I had soup but by the time my husband ate dinner the pasta had soaked up most of the “soup” liquid. Regardless, it was a tasty dinner!
