Hey and good MONDAY morning! I’m shifting to sharing these meal plan recaps on Mondays, however keep in mind you may entry dinner concepts anytime within the archive.
Final week type of bought away from me. There are plenty of theoretical balls within the air proper now, which has me extra intwined with life inside my 4 partitions. Fortuitously it’s good things, however only a lot that must be discovered on a timeline, and one way or the other it’s APRIL already. (!)
Kaitlyn had been asking to be in command of dinner one night time, and Sunday was it. The earlier week she picked her meal, made her grocery checklist, and went with me to buy her meal along with her personal cart. She cooked it on her personal with sous chef mother’s assist to empty the pasta and pull the heavy dish out of the oven, however in any other case, it was all her. We even made a reel about it!
She made Gus Gus’ Mac ‘n Cheeseburger from her Disney Princess Cookbook. It’s nonetheless a favourite in spite of everything these years!
I marinated steak in a honey chili lime marinade for about half-hour whereas I prepped the remainder of the meal: cauliflower rice on the range with a can of drained black beans combined in on the finish, romaine, sauteed onions and bell peppers, and chopped cilantro. Then I cooked the sliced steak stovetop and arrange the meeting line for everybody to make their very own.
Tremendous easy hen thighs. I seasoned with a premade mix underneath and over the pores and skin, then baked at 400 levels for 45 minutes. I served it with a salad and rice made with Kettle and Hearth’s Turmeric Ginger bone broth within the rice cooker.
It had been manner too lengthy since I made this soup and I gained’t make that mistake once more. This sausage, kale, and white bean soup is easy however really so filled with taste! We, children included, devoured this with a loaf of contemporary sourdough.
Thursday was packed full and we had been out till 8, so we grabbed dinner at Barcelona Burger in downtown Mooresville. They’ve nice burgers, however the hen is so good, too, particularly with no matter that barely spicy inexperienced sauce is that they serve with it!
One other packed day and a nighttime soccer recreation meant grabbing dinner out once more. We ate at Ghost Scratch Kitchen, which I might have advised you was one among my favorites. Nonetheless, the Nashville Scorching hen and the bread that got here with the whipped feta was deeply fried and tremendous greasy. Neither mine nor David’s stomachs felt proper for not less than 12 hours after consuming it.
We hosted buddies for “make your individual pizza” night time. I arrange a topping bar, made three batches of bread machine pizza dough, and everybody topped their very own. The youngsters liked it and I liked the Contemporary Chef kale salad that Danielle delivered to go along with it.
This brings us full circle to a different Sunday- steak night time! I used Butcher Field sirloins and the finest dang steak technique– scrumptious. Served with baked potatoes (I topped my with cottage cheese as a result of I’m making an attempt to get in additional protein anddddd we ran out of bitter cream) and steamed broccoli with lemon and butter.
Breakfasts and Lunches
A lot of sourdough, snack plates, and yogurt bowls for essentially the most half. Lunches are my nemesis so more often than not it’s leftovers or snack plates.
