Weekly Meals Jan. 30-Feb 3

Meal updates from last week:
I managed to successfully make rice noodles!  The potsticker bowls were good, but next time I would double the sauce.  The chicken and rice was a delicious and a quick and easy meal to prepare.  Both breakfast and snack recipes were a huge hit.  The protein balls from @thelemonbowl are by far the best that I have ever made.  I will be making these again.

This week will be a mixture of home-made meals and eating out.  We will be eating at home for three nights, Thursday the boys will eat breakfast for supper and then we are headed to the mountains for the weekend.  Sunday is Super Bowl so there will be some nachos in our future.

  1. Crispy sheet pan lemon chicken and veggies from @cafedelites
  2. Turkey pesto meatballs from @weelicious this recipe is a staple in our house and will be served on spaghetti with a caesar salad.  If you haven’t ever visited this site, then you must go now!
  3. Slow-cooker banh mi rice bowls from @skinnytaste this recipe is from Gina’s new cookbook.
  4. Breakfast for dinner will be pancakes with fresh fruit or bacon, eggs and toast.

For breakfast this week we will be trying a new breakfast bake:
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 tbsp honey
1 egg
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350, mix wet ingredients together, add in the dry ingredients and press into a greased 8 by 8 pan.  Bake for 15 minutes, cool and cut into bars.

Snack this week will be blueberry granola bars.  These bars contain no nuts so they are school safe.  The recipe calls for you to dip them in white chocolate, but I will be omitting this step when I make them.  This recipe comes from @thebeachhousekitchen

This week I will be providing you with a link to view and print my grocery list for the week.  The list corresponds to all the recipes that I will be making this week.  You can download and print the list before heading to the store. grocery-list-1

Happy cooking,
