Weekly Meal Plan Ideas #139
My noodle-loving kids would devour this vegetarian Lemon Pasta with Arugula at Killing Thyme (or maybe, without arugula, ha!) all by itself, but you could also serve with some rotisserie chicken or grilled fish on the side if you want some added protein.
The flavors on this Bruschetta Chicken at The Better Blondie look delicious, and the prep couldn’t be easier for a dish that looks this fancy. Of course, you might want to save one or two pieces of chicken without toppings for those picky eaters in your house.
Mmm, this cold weather has us thinking chili, and (honestly) it’s one of the best ways to disguise a meatless meal. If you don’t tell your family this Vegan Tempeh Chili at Live Eat Learn is made with tempeh instead of beef, I doubt they’ll figure it out.
Serve these quick and easy Instant Pot meatballs at A Mind “Full” Mom over pasta or polenta, or heat them in some take-and-bake baguettes with provolone cheese for some delicious meatball subs.
One of our favorite dinnertime tricks is to use frozen shrimp for quick and tasty dinners, and this recipe for easy Honey Garlic Shrimp at Kevin is Cooking looks like a great way to put this to use. The honey garlic glaze will tempt even the pickiest of eaters.
Since it’s the worst polar vortex in a quarter-century for many of us this week, we’re thinking hot chocolate for dessert. I’m intrigued by this orange hot chocolate recipe at Foody First, and I appreciate that she also gives tips for making it without the orange…if that isn’t your thing.
