It’s time to start thinking about your meal plan for next week. From easy, super fresh noodles to DIY Shake and Bake Pork Chops, we’ve got five weeknight dinners that will get you through the week ahead. So grab a pen, make your shopping list, and stock up before the weekend’s over.
And, if you want to make things even easier, you can start food shopping right now! This month, we’re thrilled to welcome our sponsor PeaPod, online grocer extraordinaire.
Just click on over to the recipes, then open Peapod in a new tab in your browser. Fill your cart with everything you need for a week’s worth of meals and when you’re ready, order. Dinner will practically make itself. Well, you know, besides the cooking. But that part is made easier with this ready-made meal plan and convenient grocery deliver from Peapod. Phew.
There is no easier way to do #MeatlessMonday than with this Pasta with Spinach Pesto and Green Beans at my blog, One Hungry Mama. It’s a kid-friendly, one-bowl meal that packs in the veggies, leaving you with nothing more to think about. You know, other than all the things you have to do this week!
It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with frozen shrimp (we call it the ultimate time-saving protein for a reason) and these boldly flavored Chimmichurri Shrimp Kabobs at Peapod are a great example of why. The recipe preps in 10 minutes and cooks in 15, and all you need on the side is a bowl of rice and big salad. So simple. Just be sure to leave time for the shrimp to marinade.
If the photo of this Cantonese Crispy Chicken from the new Nom Nom Paleo cookbook, Ready or Not, which Kate just raved about, doesn’t make you want to try it, what Kate says about the recipe will (you can get the recipe from her review). I just think it’ll be hard to wait until Wednesday to get this on the stove. Yum!
About our 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.
I’m so intrigued by this Halloumi and Mango Noodle Salad with Cilantro Coconut Dressing from the new cookbook The Savvy Cook at Brooklyn Supper. I’d never think to put the ingredients together, but they sound like a perfect combination. And given the source and a seal of approval from Elizabeth, I’m sold. In fact, I have a feeling this just might end up in regular rotation at my house.
Okay, who else grew up with Shake ‘n Bake? I’m so excited to give this DIY Sheet Pan Shake and Bake Pork Chops at Damn Delicious a try for an upgraded taste of nostalgia. The thing is, this feels like a Sunday dinner to me, but is way easier than your average Sunday family meal. So I just might order pizza on Friday and save this for the end of the weekend. Shhhh.
