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.

Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas

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!

Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas!

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: BLT Sandwiches

Mondays are sandwich days, and I haven’t made a BLT in ages! The kids loved, it and it was easy to throw together quickly on a busy weeknight.

Tuesday: Shrimp Tacos

We love shrimp in our house, and shrimp tacos are an easy week night meal. I made my own blackened seasoning and hade some leftover homemade tortillas, and these were ready in a flash.

Wednesday: Corn Chowder

My boys love corn chowder – it’s an easy recipe you can toss together, but feels hardy for a rainy weeknight meal. This one is extra good with bacon and ham!

Thursday: Slow Cooker Beef and Cheese Pasta

We need crockpot meals on Thursday nights cause I’m running around to football for the kids that night. This was a recipe that my husband picked out and a pasta dish in the crockpot sounded gross, but this was good!

Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza

Friday is homemade pizza night! Our favorite is BBQ chicken with corn and fresh jalapeños. I always use this easy pizza dough and it’s so yummy!

Saturday:  Out for Cardinals Game

Sunday: Slow Cooker Chile Verde
