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 we made a simple, delicious meals that were a hit for the whole family during the week and celebrated some fun holidays/events at the end of the week! It was a busy week so we made dinners that were easy and family favorites!

Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners: 

Monday: Leftovers

Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Avocado Toast and Roasted Chickpeas

This was an easy and fast dinner for a week night and everyone loved it! We added bacon onto our avocado toast for a little extra protein and flavor.

Thursday: Honey Garlic Chicken over rice

Thursday evenings are busy, so a crock pot meal is always a good idea. This one turned out so yummy and I served with roasted cauliflower and rice.

Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza

Saturday: Bourbon Meatballs, Cucumber Sandwiches, Hot Brown Sliders, Pimento Cheese Dip, Crackers, Fruit, and Kentucky Derby Pie

We’re celebrating the Kentucky Derby horse race with a fun dinner and party – these are the things I’m serving!

We love celebrating fun holidays throughout the year, and Cinco De Mayo is no exception. We’re making steak tacos with chips and guacamole and Pina coladas – yum!
