Time for this week’s dinner ideas! It was a really busy week with a lot of events, but I loved the time we had to eat together at home.

Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas

Time for this week’s dinner ideas! While we had a lot more meals out/leftovers than normal, I still wanted to share what a busy week of dinners looks like for us.

Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners: 

MondayHamburgers + Roasted Green Beans

The boys requested hamburgers this week, and typically I would make them with fries, but after a week of Thanksgiving dinner and lots of other big meals, I went with leftover green beans and roasted them up for a slightly healthier side dish. Yum!

Tuesday: Breakfast Burritos

These are a super easy dinner that I make often. Everyone loves them! I don’t really use a recipe — just ground sausage, scrambled eggs, and cheese, with a little bit of salsa.

Wednesday: Tortellini Sausage Soup

This is one of our all time favorite soups. It’s hearty and delicious and easy to toss together. Perfect for soup season!

Thursday: Turkey Noodle Soup (leftovers)

I made turkey noodle soup with the leftover turkey (and homemade broth from the turkey carcass) after Thanksgiving, and we had a giant pot of it, so we’re doing leftovers to get through it!

Friday: Order in Pizza

Saturday: Barbacoa Tacos

Usually we eat out or order in on Saturdays, but since we ordered pizza on Friday, we did crockpot tacos for Saturday dinner. I love a meal that can cook all day and be ready in the evening!

Sunday: Short Rib Bolognese with homemade noodles

I haven’t made this recipe in a while, and it’s been a while since I made homemade noodles! This is a great Sunday dinner!

Sunday Dessert: Chocolate Scotcheroos

One of our favorite family desserts!

This week I’m finishing my blood sugar reset with Being Brigid, so I’m making my own meals and trying to incorporate what I’m eating into my family’s dinners, so they still get more normal meals, but I don’t have to cook double. I’ll share some of my modifications below!

Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners: 

Monday: Leftovers

Tuesday: Pecan-Crusted Trout Recipe

I planned to make this fish for Sunday dinner, but my husband requested lasagna instead, so I made that at the last minute. I had all the ingredients for this fish recipe, so I made it for Tuesday night. It’s an easy recipe and so delicious! My kids love it so much.

Wednesday: French Drip Sandwiches and Broccoli

I was having beef and broccoli for my Blood Sugar reset program, so I made beef in the crockpot for everyone and served theirs with rolls and cheese to make French dip sandwiches.

Thursday: Out to Eat with Grandpa

Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza and Butternut Squash Zip Zag Fries

We had our regular friday night pizza, and I found these cute butternut squash zig zags at Trader joes, so I cooked them up in the air fryer to create some fries. Yum!

Saturday: Date Night

Sunday: Cafe Rio Pork Barbocoa Salad with Tomatillo Dressing

This is one of our all time favorite Sunday dinners. It’s a labor of love, but it’s a fantastic dinner. I usually serve with homemade tortillas, cheese, pico de Gallo, Pinto beans, and cilantro lime rice.
