It’s time to get a head start on your meal plan for next week. From a waffle iron dinner that the kids will love to a healthy one-pot wonder, we’ve got five easy weeknight dinners that will get you through the week. So grab a pen, make your shopping list, and stock up before the weekend’s over.
If you’ve been having a hard time selling the kids on #MeatlessMonday, get ready for the fight to end. This Creamy Caprese Quinoa Bake at Half Baked Harvest is the KO punch that will make you the family cook victor. I bet they’ll even ask for seconds.
This Asian Beef Noodle Salad at Savory Simple looks gorgeous enough that I’d be willing to spend 30 minutes making it. The fact that it only takes 15 minutes might mean that I have to make it twice. Every week. Ha!
Nothing makes me happier than an easy, healthy mid-week meal to get us over the hump, and this Perfect Baked Salmon with Lentils and Lemon Herb Sauce at Pinch of Yum fits the bill perfectly. Other than the dressing, which you can make while everything cooks, this meal comes together in one pot. So easy and delicious.
I’m all about grilling outside until I absolutely cannot any longer, so this Grilled Mediterranean Honey Mustard Chicken at Catz in the Kitchen is calling my name. Serve this with a side of rice and a simple Greek salad of chopped tomatoes, cucumber, and Feta cheese. You can, of course, cook this inside if you must, but I say the fresh air is as much a perk of this recipe as anything else.
Pepperoni Pizza Waffles | A Simple Pantry
I’m putting a serious twist on pizza Friday with the Pepperoni Pizza Waffles that we found while searching for easy waffle iron dinner recipes. These are pretty genius, if you ask me, and easy, too, if you use store-bought pizza dough. The kids may even want to help with dinner, which is more than welcome by Friday night.
