At top: Greek Chickpea Burgers at Connoisseurus Veg | Lasagna Soup with Ricotta Cream from Once Upon A Chef
For Meatless Monday, we’ll be trying these Greek Chickpea Burgers at Connoisseurus Veg. (Awesome name, right?) Chickpeas are a great substitute for chicken or turkey when making plant-based meals, and they will work perfectly with the Greek spices in this recipe. I’m predicting no leftovers on these.
If you have a busy night this week or just want a stress-free dinner, then plan on these Sheet Pan Pork Chops recipe from Girl Gone Gourmet. One pan, minimal cleanup, and a dinner the whole family will like. If you don’t know the magic of parsnips yet, this recipe will turn you into a fan. Bacon + parsnips = heaven.
This recipe for Lasagna Soup with Ricotta Cream from Once Upon A Chef is on weekly rotation in our house – especially during the grey winter months. This recipe was featured in Lisa’s review of Once Upon A Chef: Weeknight/Weekend cookbook (affiliate) with permission from the author herself. Not only does it come together much quicker than a traditional lasagna, but it is also the perfect comfort food after a busy day.

Fajitas are a smart way to sneak some extra veggies into my kids’ dinner, and this 20-minute Chili Lime Sheet Pan Fajitas recipe at Call Me PMC was speaking right to me because, ahem, 20 minutes. Can’t be easier.
Everyone loves breakfast for dinner and this week, instead of pancakes, I plan on making a slightly more sophisticated Quiche Lorraine. This recipe from Life, Love and Good Food can be prepped ahead of time (yay for make-ahead recipes!) and kept in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake. Serve it with a nice green salad, or sliced cantaloupe is my kids’ favorite.
