Time for this week’s dinner ideas! This week I made a mix of new recipes and family favorites for some super tasty meals.
Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas!
I tried some new recipes early on in the week and finished with family favorites for a good mix of meals. We ended the week with a super fun, simple dessert that the whole family loves.
Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners:
Monday: Split Pea Soup
Tuesday: Crispy Air Fryer Chicken
Thursday: Ground Beef Taquitos
Friday: Ordered Pizza
Saturday: Family Date Night
Sunday: Red Beans and Rice
Sunday Dessert: Air Fryer Donuts
My kids mostly hated this soup…probably because it looked a little like green oatmeal. My oldest politely ate it, but the other two flat out refused to eat it. So….not a win. It was good, but not amazing. For sure won’t repeat it. Can’t win them all!
I had planned to make grilled chicken skewers, but we had a freeze this week so I didn’t get a chance to go to the store (or order groceries) so I had no skewers. I had already defrosted the chicken thighs, so I found this recipe and it was simple and super flavorful and delicious. All the boys loved it! I served it with white rice.
I made these tasty little ground beef taquitos for dinner, and although they certainly didn’t roll up super nicely like the frozen ones I ate as a kid, they were delicious and everyone loved them. I actually didn’t have any corn tortillas, so I made my own using THIS RECIPE— super easy and way better than store-bought!
This is Philip’s favorite meal — super simple and easy to toss in the crockpot before church on Sunday. I use smoked sausage, and always add it during the last hour so it doesn’t get mushy. I also decrease the amount of creole seasoning by A LOT so my kids will actually eat it.
