Time for this week’s dinner ideas! This week’s meals were easy, quick, and delicious for the whole family!
Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas!
This week we’ve been getting into a routine in our summer condo and are finally back to cooking more consistently! This summer I’m working on teaching my boys some major life skills, including cooking. They’re each in charge of one day of cooking per week, and it’s been so fun to cook together and see them learning.
Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners:
Monday was my 13 year old’s day. He chose fried chicken and fried pickles for dinner, and they turned out amazing. Both recipes were fantastic. He served with fresh blackberries.
Wednesday: Cheeseburger Sliders
Wednesday was my 10 year old’s day to cook and he chose cheeseburger sliders. I was a little unsure about this recipe but it actually turned out well. It was yummy and easy enough for my 10 year old to cook (with a little help)! He served with cantaloupe and waffle fries.
Thursday was my 7 year old’s day to cook, and he decided on omelets. Since he’s new to cooking (whereas the older boys have helped a lot over the years), he mostly helped crack and mix eggs, add cheese, and chop up some veggies. But it was good practice to help in the kitchen, and I’m tailoring how much I help each boy with their meals based on their needs.
Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza
We haven’t had homemade pizza for a few weeks with the craziness of the move, and so even though we’re in the condo and don’t have all the regular tools to make it, we still made it this week cause we all missed it! I do BBQ sauce, Mexican blend cheese, grilled chicken, frozen corn, and fresh jalapeños. We top with a drizzle of BBQ sauce and crispy onions. So yummy!
Saturday: Out to Eat
Sunday: Green Chile Verde
This is one of our favorite meals. So flavorful and so delicious. We brought our slow cooker with us to the summer condo so I can make all our favorites.
