For meatless Monday, I’m going to make these Greek Chicken Pita Wraps at College Housewife. I know, I know…chicken is meat. But I’ll probably whip mine up with tofu or chickpeas (or maybe some meatless chicken strips from the frozen section) instead. Either way, these are one of my kids’ favorite meals.
For a lighter take on Taco Tuesday, I’m looking at this Mexican Salad at Sweet and Savory Meals. It’s packed with all my favorite flavors, like avocados, red beans and cilantro. Of course, you can serve it alongside tacos too, if you want.
Instead of ordering in, whip up this Orange Chicken with Stir Fry Veggies at Bless This Mess instead. Cook time is just 25 minutes, which is probably faster than waiting for delivery anyway.

Chicken Carbonara can be pretty indulgent, what with all that heavy cream and egg yolks, but with a few salads on the schedule this week I think we can splurge on it. I love this recipe at Sweet and Savory because she gives a few variations, including shrimp, bacon, and more- or less-creamy sauce.
These Romaine Blue Cheese wedge salads at Mean Green Chef look amazing and they take just 15 minutes to prep. They’d be the perfect side dish if you’re grilling out, or they could stand on their own as a lighter dinner. You might just have to pop a pizza in the oven for the kids.
We’re drooling over these dark chocolate and peanut butter swirl brownies at Mackenzie Jordan. I’m assuming you can see why.
Thanks for featuring our Romaine Wedge Salad with Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing! Much appreciated 🙂
Thanks for sharing my recipe!
Thank YOU for making something so fabulous that we know parents will love! -Liz
