For our family (maybe most families?), dinner is the only meal where we are all together. My toddler is usually hungry around 6pm, which means we eat dinner as a family around the same time. That leaves me about half an hour between getting home from work and dinner time. I try to make dinner stress free by prepping ahead on the weekends. Cooking dinner is also less stressful when you plan ahead what to make and shop for the ingredients ahead of time.
On Friday evenings, I try to decide on the 2-3 dishes that I want to make for the following week, since we do our grocery shopping on the weekends. On Sundays, I do my meal prep.
So here’s what we’ve been eating lately.
Bake Salmon (frozen aisle from Costco)
Zuppa Toscana soup (less the gnocchi) and added baked cauliflower
Porchop + veggie sides
Eggplant parmesan (my toddler likes to help with making dinner)
Baked egg muffin for breakfast for the week
Honey and chicken dish in the slow cooker
Baked chicken apple sausage with veggies
Zucchini soup (our favorite)
Crispy eggs (cooked with ghee) on top of a salad, dressing is balsamic vinegar
Egg Roll Stir Fry
Damn Fine Chicken from NomNomPaleo website
Roasting vegetables on Sundays
Eggplant parmesan (again!)
Panda Express teriyaki chicken, with cauliflower rice and roasted parmesan broccoli
More roasted veggies, seasoned with something spicy
