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 we made a simple, delicious meals that were a hit for the whole family! 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: Breakfast sandwiches on bagels and watermelon

On Monday, my eleven year old is in charge of dinner. He chose to make breakfast sandwiches and these turned out amazing, and were delicious. It’s an easy weeknight meal and a great meal that any kid can make.

Tuesday: Fajita Veggie Burrito Bowls with Grilled Chicken

I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try for dinner this week. I added marinated air-fried chicken for a little extra heartiness and protein, and everyone gobbled this up. It was delicious!

Wednesday: Navajo Taco’s with Fry Bread

My 14 year old made dinner on Wednesday and he chose Navajo tacos. This is a great dinner for teenagers to make, and helps them get comfortable cooking with oil, but everything else is pretty basic.

Thursday: 4th of July!

Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza

We have pizza every Friday, and this is a quick and easy pizza dough that is delicious. We love BBQ chicken pizza, and we top with cheese, grilled chicken, jalapeños, corn, and BBQ sauce, then add crispy onions when it’s out of the oven. Delicious!

Saturday: Family Date Night

Sunday: Slow Cooker Chile Verde

    Do you brown your meat for the slow cooker verde before adding it to the slow cooker?
