Time for this week’s dinner ideas! We were out of town at the start of the week, but we made some delicious recipes at the end that got us back into a normal routine.
Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas
For the first half of this week we were in Arizona visiting Philip’s family, so I didn’t start cooking again until Thursday night. But here’s our shortened menu this week with some delicious and easy dinners that are getting us back into a normal routine!
Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners:
Thursday: Tortellini Soup
Friday: Ham and Pineapple Pizza
Saturday: Ground Beef Tacos
Sunday: Chicken Marsala
Sunday Dessert: Gooey Rolo Cookies
I’ve been making this recipe for years and it’s one of our very favorites! It’s hearty and packed with veggies and protein and lots of goodness, but it’s not heavy since it has a clear broth. My kids all love it too. Definitely a good weeknight soup for a chilly evening.
We still have leftover Christmas ham in the freezer, so we’re slowly making our way through that with lots of ham recipes. This is one of my favorites to make with leftover ham — pineapple and ham pizza! I used to hate Hawaiian pizza, but when I started making it with good ham and fresh pineapple, it was a game changer. Definitely better than canned pineapple and Canadian bacon..try it! I always use Mels Kitchen Cafe’s fool proof pizza dough.
Ground beef tacos are my kids FAVORITE meal. Like, as basic as it comes, but they love them. Usually we go out to eat on Saturday night, but we’ve been eating out so much during our holiday travels that I’m ready to just eat at home for a few weeks. So I made these easy tacos for Saturday night and served with chips and salsa!
This is a recipe I’ve been making for years and it’s from my friend Kayla, who used to do a cooking instagram page. She hasn’t done it for years, but the recipe is on her instagram post. It’s super flavorful and delicious and a good Sunday dinner served with veggies and noodles.
