You know how some weeks you feel like you just nailed dinner every single night? I feel like this is one of those weeks. It’s all super easy, really low maintenance, but not the same ol’ same ol’ (queue my husband saying “tacos again” in the background).
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT:
Curry Meatballs w/Naan and Cucumber Yogurt Sauce – Much simpler than it sounds, here’s the recipe.
Grilled Brie and Apple on Challa – We used the Foreman grill for this to kind of smush the challa bread a bit (it’s very large). Just put some brie, sliced apple, and a drizzle of honey in between two slices of bread. Grill for a few minutes, and you’ve got a tasty delight.
Thanksgiving Dinner – We got a yummy local turkey roast. We’ll just cook up a side of green beans and boiled potatoes tossed with butter and parsley (be sure to save some potatoes and beans for the Nicoise salad below), and we’re good to go.
Grilled Soyaki Chicken Kebabs – Cut up pieces of chicken, pineapple, red bell pepper, and red onion. Skewer them and let them marinate in Trader Joe’s Soyaki Sauce (or any bottled Islandy/Asian marinade) for as long as 20 minutes to a couple of hours. Grill them up and enjoy.
Nicoise Salad – Check out how we make this here. Hopefully you saved some of your green beans and potatoes from Thanksgiving Dinner!
Salmon Burgers w/Dill Potato Salad – You could certainly make your own Salmon Burgers, but I buy the frozen pre-made kind and garnish with a little spring mix and thinly sliced red onion. Here’s the recipe for the Dill Potato Salad.
Pork Tenderloin, Rice Pilaf, Artichokes – Okay, so this one is kind of a stand by for us (“pork tenderloin again…”) but the kids love it and we mix up what we put on the pork each time, so that makes it different right? We use a local pepper jelly that has tons of different flavors (Cranpeno, Sweet Mother of Onion, Blackberry Buzz, just to name a few). We use a boxed rice pilaf, and this is how to cook a perfect artichoke.
