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.

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 and next I’m doing a 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 my modifications below!

Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners: 

Monday: Meatball subs and roasted veggies

My meal for the blood sugar reset was lamb meatballs and tzatziki veggies. I swapped the lamb for very lean ground beef for my meatballs, and then used part of the ground beef and added some ground pork to make everyone else’s meatballs. I cooked them all together, which made it efficient and easy, then I served theirs on rolls with cheese and marinara sauce, and ate mine with my prepared tzatziki veggies. Everyone was happy!

Tuesday: Shrimp tacos with homemade tortillas

My meal for the blood sugar reset was blackened shrimp and kale salad, so I cooked all the shrimp with homemade blackening seasoning, then served my family’s with homemade flour tortillas and toppings, and served mine with a kale salad. This was easy and everyone gobbled it up.

Wednesday: Swedish meatballs over rice and broccoli

My meal for Wednesday was the same as Monday, but since I didn’t want to do the same meal for my family, I used our leftover meatballs and created a Swedish meatball sauce and served over rice with roasted broccoli.

Thursday: Shrimp Boil

I had another repeat shrimp kale salad meal for Thursday, so I made our favorite shrimp boil for dinner for the family. It’s easy to toss everything on the sheet and then throw in the oven for dinner. Everyone loves this!

Friday: Out for B’s Birthday

My oldest turned 14 this week, and since Grandpa is in town, he offered to take us all out for dinner. We went to a steak house per B’s request. I had a small steak and roasted veggies for my dinner since I’m still on the blood sugar reset.

Saturday: Order Pizza

B’s birthday party was on Saturday and he wanted to order pizza, so we did pizza for everyone else and I made my Blood Sugar Reset meal of beef and broccoli!

Sunday: Pecan-Crusted Trout

I made this pecan crusted fish a few months ago from HelloFresh and it was one of our favorite meals! My kids DEVOURED it. My Blood Sugar Reset meal is salmon, but my husband doesn’t love Salmon, so I’m making them trout and I’ll make my salmon at the same time!

    Taking on a blood sugar reset with Being Brigid this week and next! I’m committed to preparing my own meals while seamlessly integrating them into my family’s dinners. It’s all about efficiency—keeping things normal for them while simplifying my cooking routine. Thanks!
