I’ve put all the Weekly Dinner Menus in one convenient spot. Just go here and you can easily access 7 nights of dinner ideas for each week throughout the year. I know I love looking at other people’s meal plans to help get me out of the inevitable dinner rut.
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT:
Peanut Satay Chicken Skewers with Coconut Rice – Get the fresh chicken that’s already cut into tenders/strips. Marinate the chicken for at least a few hours in a peanut satay sauce (most grocery stores have one either in the Thai section or jarred sauces). Soak your skewers in water for a few minutes, then put the chicken on them. While you’re grilling the chicken, cook the white rice according to package directions, but use coconut milk instead of water. Garnish with chopped green onions.
Grilled Flank Steak, Parm Potatoes, and Caprese – Use this marinade for the flank steak, and these instructions for the caprese. Parm potato recipe coming soon, but basically you layer sliced potatoes, sliced onion, a few pats of butter, a couple cloves of garlic, shredded parmesan cheese, all on piece of foil. Close it up to make a pouch and grill for about 20 minutes.
Shrimp Caesar Salad – Romaine lettuce, shrimp, black olives, croutons, shredded Parm, Caesar dressing.
BFD (Breakfast for Dinner) – Our go-to is pancakes, sausage, and scrambled eggs with cheese.
Chalupa Dinner Bowl – Recipe here.
Prosciutto Arugula Pizza – Start with a plain thin pizza crust, we use the ones in the freezer section of Trader Joe’s. Drizzle olive oil over it, cover with shredded mozzarella and sliced prosciutto. Bake according to package directions. Meanwhile, toss the arugula with some fresh squeezed lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper. When the pizza’s done, pile the arugula salad on top and finish with some shaved Parmesan and a squeeze of lemon. (It will look a little like this.)
Homemade Veggie Lo Mein – I use the pre-cut Asian veggie mix in the produce section. Saute them with some stir fry sauce. Meanwhile, cook up some spaghetti. Mix all together.
