Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Smoky Chili Mac at Bev Cooks

I’m not quite ready for hearty fall stews, but the temp has dropped a little bit and this Smoky Chili Mac Soup at Bev Cooks strikes me as the perfect middle ground. Light, but a little warming. And more importantly, totally delicious and kid-friendly. Make this recipe as written, or skip the beef to turn this into a #MeatlessMonday meal.

This mouthwatering Asian Noodle Salad with Shrimp, Mango, and Watercress at Peapod takes 25 minutes from start to finish. Just 25 mintues! If that wasn’t enough, this light end-of-summer meal combines noodles with fresh mango, a sure hit with the kids, whether or not they eat the shrimp.

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Sheet Pan Thai Glazed Salmon at The Recipe Critic

I love a good sheet pan dinner, especially when it serves up protein and veggies, all in one. This Sheet Pan Thai Glazed Salmon at The Recipe Critic couldn’t be more hands off. Whisk together a small handful of ingredient to make a glaze, throw everything on a pan, drizzle, and bake. Your oven does most of the work. As it should be.

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plans made even easier with Peapod, the original online grocery delivery service! [sponsor]

As the country’s very first grocery delivery service, having delivered over 40 million orders so far (!!), it’s no wonder that Peapod has the whole online grocery shopping thing down.

In fact, you may also be surprised to learn that Peapod does not deliver groceries from your local Stop ‘n Shop. Rather, they have their own grocery warehouses with a massive selection just for you, including all the affordable staples you know and love. Plus, they offer a wide range of fresh produce, organic items, even ready-to-cook meal kits.

In other words, Peapod offers absolutely everything you need to keep your family well fed, all delivered straight to your door.



Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: 30-Minute Caprese Chicken at Foodie Crush

In my house, dinner wins anytime there’s melty mozzarella involved. This 30-Minute Caprese Chicken does the trick without having to make an involved, time-consuming baked casserole. Everyone will be happy with dinner — just look and tell me how they could not be! — and I’ll be happy with how little time I had to spend in the kitchen.


Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Lasagna Grilled Cheese at Rachel Schultz

Friday is all about cooking up fun food and I cannot think of anything more fun — or delicious! — than this Lasagna Grilled Cheese by Rachel Schultz. I mean, seriously? I have a feeling that I should double the recipe because my boys are going to down this faster than I can say dinnertime.
