I’m keeping this week’s dinners super simple, because a lot of things going on right now feel really heavy and tough. That’s when I go back to simple.
So, if you’re looking for dinner ideas and recipes, here are 5 dinners we’re planning for this week! (With room for leftovers and/or take-out nights.)
Here’s what’s for dinner this week:
10-Minute Chicken Tikka Masala from Passion for Pennies. I have a jar of Trader Joe’s Masala Simmer Sauce, so I’m going to add some chicken and veggies (bell pepper, peas and cauliflower florets) and serve it over brown jasmine rice.
Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa from The Cookie Rookie. I love the combo of the creamy avocado with this. I like to serve it with grilled corn on the cob or a salad.
Cauliflower Curry from Pinch of Yum. I’ve mentioned this recipe a bunch of times, but it’s because it’s that good! Raegan and Leah sometimes like this dinner, especially when I serve it with naan, but Jo consistently loves it and asks for seconds. If your kids like curry and butternut squash, I definitely recommend you give this recipe a try!
Cauliflower Crust Veggie Pesto Pizza. This is such a delicious dinner full of colorful veggies. I follow the cooking directions for the cauliflower pizza crust (I love the Trader Joe’s one), and while that’s baking, I sauté veggies with a little olive oil, salt & pepper for a few minutes until they’re heated but still have a little crisp to them. When the crust is done, top with your favorite pesto, veggies then pieces of fresh mozzarella. Bake for a few minutes or broil until the cheese is melty. Enjoy!
Pad Thai. My oldest daughter Raegan saw this recipe in her monthly Atlas Kiwi Co. crate and wanted to make it together. 🙂 (Kiwi Co. a monthly kit for kids with projects and fun things related to a new country ever month. This is a great gift idea to suggest grandparents get for kiddos! All three of my girls LOVE them!)
Also, I’ve been thinking about including a grocery list with these posts so you can either print of check off as you shop. Would that be helpful? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂
