What’s On The Menu this week? Scroll down to find the recipes for this week’s menu!
Sunday – Homemade Hamburger Helper
I love Hamburger Helper. Like, I used to make it every single week for myself in college, but ya know it’s definitely not the healthiest. And it has a ton of sodium. So when I found this recipe for a homemade version I was so excited!
Monday – Chickenless Orange Chicken + Veggie Fried Rice
Guys, if you aren’t shopping at Trader Joe’s I don’t know if I can say it any louder, but like GO TO TRADER JOE’S! I can get super crazy with chicken and the texture so when I found this chickenless orange chicken I HAD to try it and it is AMAZING. I get 2 packs and 1 pack of their frozen veggie fried rice and seriously it’s the easiest meal to make!
Pro-Tip – add the sauce to the orange chicken while it is still in the pan and cook for just a bit that way you’ll get the nice sticky sauce we all love.
Tuesday – Zesty Crockpot Italian Chicken
It’s getting a little cooler which means we can crockpot right?! This is a full-on comfort recipe and it takes little to no effort – my kind of recipe!
Wednesday – Quesadillas
Sometimes I don’t want to cook. And that day is today. The thing I love about quesadillas is that they’re easy to make. And I can throw a bunch of whatever I have in them! Black beans, some avocado, a little pineapple – whatever floats the old boat! I have no recipe. I just take tortillas, fill them with cheese and all the other things and then pan fry them.
Thursday – Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet
This my friends is delicious. And easy. And those are two things that I love! I use this recipe And just an fyi – sometimes I don’t have the onion or the peppers and I use minced onion spice and frozen cut up bell peppers because that’s how I roll!
Friday – Homemade Pizza
Yes, we do this every week. And no it most likely won’t change. Here’s the dough we use from the Pioneer Woman. I use whatever tomato sauce we happen to have lying around, BUT if I’m being super gourmet I will buy the pizza sauce from Trader Joe’s AND their Pizza seasoned shredded cheese.
Saturday – Leftovers
It’s not fancy and my husband hates them, but we are making a lot of food thigs week and I refuse to waste it! And also am I the only one that thinks leftovers are delicious? Like when food can sit in its own flavor for a few days it just tastes even better!
