This Creamy Caprese Quinoa Bake at Half Baked Harvest might end up on every Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan. So. Good!

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.

 

How could we not include this Asian Beef Noodle Salad at Savory Simple in our Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan when it only takes 15 minutes from start to finish?!

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!

 

This Baked Salmon with Lentils and Lemon Herb Sauce at Pinch of Yum earned a spot on the Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan because it's an easy, healthy, one-pot meal. It doesn't get better!

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.

We'd be happy including this Grilled Mediterranean Honey Mustard Chicken at Catz in the Kitchen on our Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan until the temps drop.

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.

 

Give pizza Friday a fun twist with these Pepperoni Waffle Pizzas at A Simple Pantry | Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan

 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.
