Sunday – Forty Garlic Chicken, this is a recipe from week one but I MUST make it again. We all love it so much! Henry asked me to make it so make it I shall. 🙂 Remember to serve with fresh french bread and make sure you allow plenty of time to cook this. It takes a couple of hours to cook but it is AMAZING. Reminder – refer to my garlic blog for garlic peeling tips. It’s essential for this recipe.
Monday– Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. This is such a great way to start the week. You can throw everything in the crock pot the night before and put it on before you leave for the day on Monday. Serve on buns with sweet potato fries on the side and maybe a little cole slaw.
Tuesday– Spaghetti with turkey meatballs. Ok, so with soccer practices on Tuesday nights it is becoming difficult to cook EVERY night. Today has to be an easy night. I usually keep Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs in the freezer, throw them in a sauce pan and cover with a jar of sauce. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until meatballs are heated through. Serve over spaghetti, throw some garlic bread in. Done.
Wednesday– Tuna Casserole. Serve with biscuits. You can certainly make your own, but during the week, it’s refrigerated biscuits for us! 🙂
Thursday– Chicken Fried Rice. Such a quick easy meal. I typically use this dish as an opportunity to unload the veggies in the fridge that are on the verge of biting the dust. I love to add diced cucumber for a little crunch but will add zucchini, carrots, celery. Again, I don’t really go shopping for this, I usually just open the veggie drawer and start slicing and dicing.
Friday– Date Night!!! or Leftover night. Whatev.
Saturday– Chicken Fried Steak w/Gravy – If you haven’t heard of Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Women, you are missing out! She is amaZing. This is one of my favorite recipes from her. Serve with Mashed Potatoes and a salad. Yum!!
