This week we are still working on some leftovers from last week and the meals this week will give us a few leftover days…which I love! This week I’m completely relying on my go-to cookbooks so I don’t have any specific recipes to share…but I will next week so stay tuned! Also, read through to the end for a special discount happening today only for one of my favorite kitchen items!!
Here’s what we’re eating this week:
BLTA Burger with Grilled Corn on the Cob
We are grilling these delicious grass-fed burgers, topped with BLTA salsa (bacon, tomatoes, avocados) and lettuce. This recipe is from Danielle Walker’s cookbook, Celebrations, page 172.
We are serving this with a side of grilled corn on the cob, which the boys LOVE. I can’t have corn because of my diet, so I will grill some asparagus and serve my burger on butter lettuce.
For dessert, we are having this gorgeous berry tart with vanilla bean custard.
This is also in Danielle Walker’s Celebrations cookbook, page 178.
Chicken Piccata with Artichokes and Spinach
This is one of my favorite easy chicken dinners (another Danielle Walker win! This one is from Eat What You Love). The boys will eat the chicken…if they have some Chick-Fil-A sauce to dip it in! Haha! That’s with every chicken meal! 😉
This is a one-pan dish that is perfect alone, but I will also give my boys a side of veggies (like bell pepper and hummus) and some fruit. I will still give them a little bit of the spinach and artichokes, but not much, as they don’t eat it but we have a rule that you must try everything and I don’t make separate meals.
Another leftover day! We will probably still have some chicken leftover and maybe a burger, so this will be a hodgepodge kinda night.
Sheet-Pan Steak Fajitas
We love fajitas around here! I love to make my own guacamole, pico, and pineapple salsa to top the fajitas. This dish (Danielle Walker, Eat What You Love, pg. 223) is a one-pan dish, which are always my favorite type of meal! This recipes calls for flank steak, onions, bell peppers, and she also has a recipe for homemade guacamole. I usually just wing-it when it comes to my guac (a whole guacamole, a handful diced red onion, a little garlic powder (’cause thats your business! – anyone know this reference?!?), cilantro, a few diced cherry tomatoes, and mix).
I will eat my fajitas served in butter lettuce and the boys will have theirs in tortillas.
Since we had a lot of meat this week, the weekend will be more plant-based. I am thinking this Black Bean Tortilla Soup will be a hit!
