At top: Honey Garlic Pork with Fried Rice | Sugar Spice Life
Of course, you can use any protein you’d like on this Jackfruit Sloppy Joe Pizza at If You Must Kitchen, but for Meatless Monday (or, pretty much any day, honestly) I love the idea of pulled Jackfruit. My kids couldn’t tell the different between it and chicken when mixed into their dinners, and this is a perfect way to introduce it to them.
(BTDT tip: Buy jackfruit canned, and cook it in the Instant Pot for 15 minutes with the spices recommended here. So easy.)
Skip the takeout and make your own Honey Garlic Pork with Fried Rice with this recipe from Sugar Spice Life. I recommend doubling — or tripling — the recipe, because you are not going to have any leftovers here.
Let’s hear it for one-pot dinners, amirite? This Italian Sausage Caprese Salad at HomeEc@Home is fast and easy, and as you prep the meal you can always set some ingredients aside for those picky eaters. Since we have a mixed household — some meat eaters, some not — I’d leave the sausage on the side for those who want it to mix in.
Parents, we’ve got your back with super-easy meals this week. Just glaze these BBQ Baked Chicken Thighs at Munchkin Time and bake them, then steam some veggies to go on the side. In fact, have you seen Liz’s tip for making corn on the cob sooooo good? That’s what I’d be serving with these, especially while it’s still in season!
Mmmm, if you’re looking for an easy week night dinner, we vote salads. This Spicy Thai Shrimp Salad at Skinny Taste is bursting with flavor and actually filling, thanks to that grilled shrimp on top. You can always serve the kids their shrimp and corn a la carte, or make them try some salad while you whip up some grilled cheese for them on the side. Pop open a nice white wine, and enjoy!
