Welcome back for another weekly meal plan post. With Thanksgiving in our review mirror, many of us are filling our calendars with holiday events and gatherings. The next three and a half weeks can be very busy and may not be the best time to try new recipes or complicated meals.
But that's no reason to not feed your family well either. Try keeping some "staples" around so you can throw together quick meals that your family will enjoy. For instance, last weekend we didn't have anything for lunch. This is a common struggle in our home, and one I hope to address int he new year. I'm great at planning dinners and making school lunches, but the rest of the time, there is precious little to teat except snacks!
We did have some provolone cheese, dry salami and prosciutto that we hadn't ended up using during the week. But, no bread. So what do do? We had a tin of crescent rolls (not the healthiest, but perfect in a pinch!) and I recalled seeing some quick "stromboli" type dishes on Pinterest, so I gave my own version a try.
Within 20 minutes we had a yummy warm lunch. Follow the steps below, place on an ungreased baking sheet and cook for approximately 20 minutes at 350.
This week, I'm easing into things since our evenings look pretty free. Here's what we have planned for this week:
Monday - Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Carrots and Potatoes
Tuesday - They're calling for snow, so it's a good night for our favorite Tortellini Soup.
Wednesday - Stuffed Flounder, Creamed Spinach
Thursday - Pulled Pork Tortillas, Slaw
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday and Sunday - TBD
What's for dinner at your house this week?
catch you soon -
