This was our weekly dinner menu this week! We made a few new meals this week, like ham and potato soup, Tex-Mex migas, and one pan gnocchi. 

Need some dinner ideas this week? Here’s our weekly menu?

Last week we were out of town at Disney World and then went straight into social distancing. So even though it usually takes a few days to recover from a trip, this time we were trying to maintain normalcy with a weekly menu and nightly homemade dinners.

These were a few things on our weekly menu this week!

Ham, potato, and corn soup

It’s been super rainy this week, so soup had to be on the menu. I planned to make ham and white bean soup, but somehow forgot to get white beans at the store. So I pivoted and made THIS HAM, POTATO, CORN SOUP.

I used 1% milk to keep it less heavy and fattening. I served it with crusty bread. It was delicious.

One pan gnocchi and sausage

I always do one pan meals on Mondays, but have been wanting to switch it up since most of my one pans are fairly similar. This gnocchi and sausage meal was just what I needed, and it was delicious.

I made a few changes in the recipe:

  • I left out the red onions
  • I swapped the fresh mozzarella and did parmesan cheese instead (it’s what I had)
  • I used sweet italian sausage links (uncooked) rather than smoked chicken sausage — my husband doesn’t love chicken sausage so I swapped it. I had to cook everything a little longer to make sure the sausage was cooked through.

This is definitely one we’ll make again!

Tex-Mex Migas

Apparently now we’re truly Texans because we made migas! These were super good and quick and easy.

A few changes I made:

  • I left the veggies out of the egg mixture and instead we added salsa and avocado on top
  • I added ground sausage for a little more heartiness
  • We put the mixture on fresh tortillas

Amazing French Toast

I’ve made lots of French toast over the years, but I ran across this recipe on Sunday morning and decided to make it for the boys. It’s made in a batter with flour added in, rather than just a milk and egg mixture, and it was amazing.

Definitely we’ll be using this recipe again!

Red Beans and Rice

This one is a regular in our house. It’s my husband’s favorite dinner! And it’s so easy to make.

My only recommendation about the recipe:

  • Add the sausage in the last hour. If you let it cook for all those other hours, it begins to fall apart.
