Time for this week’s dinner ideas! It’s been a busy week, but we’ve made a ton of simple, family favorites for dinner.
Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas!
This week we’ve had my parents in town, plus lots of evening sports commitments, and a quick last minute trip to St. Louis for Philip and me (we took advantage of my parents being in town to sneak over there for a work thing for him). But this week has lots of simple and family friendly recipes that my kids absolutely love!
Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners:
Monday: Baked Mac and Cheese
Wednesday: French Dip Sandwiches
Thursday: Fry Bread Tacos
Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza
Saturday: Out of Eat
My oldest has been begging for baked Mac and cheese for dinner, so I made this recipe and it was tremendous. Super flavorful, cheesy, and the perfect crispy topping. Definitely heavy, but delicious. I think I’ll be making this again for the Super Bowl!
I don’t really use a recipe for this, but this recipe is basically what I do. We ended up losing power in our whole city for about an hour on Wednesday night, so I was super grateful for dinner in the crockpot so we could still eat without a hitch!
The boys requested these too for dinner, and they’re a crowd favorite. Easy, delicious, and fun to eat with the big puffy pieces of dough.
We haven’t made our BBQ chicken pizza for a few weeks and the boys have been begging for it. We use Mel’s Kitchen Cafe’s pizza dough, and then put BBQ sauce, grilled chicken, frozen corn, fresh jalapeños, and cheese on it. Then we add crispy onions and a drizzle of bbq sauce on before serving. Delicious!
Philip and I had to leave town for the weekend for a work thing for him, so we left the kids with my parents (who are currently in town visiting). So my mom might make something totally different, but I planned to make our favorite enchiladas with the leftover French dip meat. Easy and delicious! I found the recipe in a cookbook like 15 years ago, so I shared the recipe in this blog post!
