Sunday – Salmon w/Herb Mustard Glaze. This dish, by Giada de Laurentiis, is incredibly healthy for you and tastes great. Sometimes a difficult combo to find. This does call for fresh herbs but I use whatever I have in the spice cabinet. Love fresh herbs but sometimes it’s just easier to go with dry spices. The punch of the mustard with the salmon is fantastic! Serve with rice and a leafy salad for a great Sunday dinner.
Monday- Melt in Your Mouth Chicken Breasts. With only 6 ingredients, ingredients you typically keep on hand at any given moment, this recipe, by Food.com is a definite mid-week meal winner! How’s that for a run-on sentence. :) Serve with noodles coated in olive oil and garlic salt and a veggie and you’re all set. This is even kid-friendly!
Tuesday- Slow Cooker BBQ Pork. This recipe from AllRecipes has only three ingredients! Serve on wheat rolls and sweet potato fries on the side for the ultimate in comfort food night!!
Thursday- Szechwan Shrimp. This is such an easy mid-week meal that tastes like you spent hours. Serve with rice and edamame. Yum!
Friday - Chicken Tortilla Pie. Love this recipe from Myrecipes.com! A few notes on this recipe: For a mid-week time saver, buy a rotisserie chicken already cooked and I always buy jarred salsa (the recipe calls for fresh…maybe in the Summer that makes sense). It also calls for a spring-form pan. I do have one but if you don’t, don’t sweat it, just layer in a glass baking dish. It won’t look as pretty and will be a bit harder to get out of the pan, but really… who cares? It all tastes the same. Delicious! Serve with Zatarains Spanish Rice.
Saturday- Bolognese Sauce. (Slow Cooker Recipe by Myrecipes.com!) This takes a bit of prep work, but then you can sit back and let it cook all day in the slow cooker. You will feel like a culinary genius when you sit down to eat this over your favorite pasta. It tastes fresh, authentic and makes your house smell amazing all day.
