Time for this week’s dinner ideas! This week’s meals were perfectly easy, quick, and delicious for a busy summer schedule!
Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas!
This week was extra busy, so our meals were both easy and yummy! The boys are still in charge of one dinner each week as part of our focus on learning more life skills this summer and they made some great recipes. This week we ate a mix of delicious recipes the boys picked and other family favorites.
Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners:
This is one of our favorite Sunday dinners. It’s a super simple recipe that can be thrown together quickly and then cooked during a Sunday afternoon. I always use Rao’s marinara sauce from the grocery store and that makes it super easy and it’s so tasty.
Sunday Dessert: Roasted Peaches
We had some delicious peaches from Trader Joe’s this week, so I had to make this! I created my own crumble with melted butter, flour, brown and white sugar, and salt, and toasted it in the oven at 400F for about 15 minutes, and it was the perfect topping with vanilla ice cream.
Sanny was in charge of Monday’s meal and he chose to make crepes. He did a great job mixing the ingredients and setting the table with all the different crepe toppings, and then I actually cooked them. This is a good and easy recipe!
Wednesday: Corn Chowder
Fos was in charge of Wednesday’s meal and he chose corn chowder. This one is great for summer cause it’s not such a heavy soup and it’s packed with yummy veggies.
Thursday: Work Dinner for Mom and Dad
Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza
We make pizza every Friday night, and our go-to is BBQ chicken! We always use this dough recipe and it’s super easy and delicious.
Saturday: Family Date Night
Sunday: Pork Tacos
This is one of our favorite Sunday dinners and easy to toss in the crockpot and cook all day. I’ve been making this for years and it’s always a crowd pleaser.
