Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of January 23rd
Stretchy, mild fresh mozzarella is layered with briny olive tapenade to create a rich, savory sandwich in no time at all. Serve with a veggie-packed soup or salad for a full, Meatless Monday meal.
Homemade take-out really is that much better. Make an authentic, delicious chicken dish in under 20 minutes. Substitute lower-sodium soy sauce if fish sauce is difficult to find. You can also substitute thinly sliced Thai bird chiles or jalapeño for the sambal oelek—or leave it out completely if you'd rather enjoy a mild dish.

Jambalaya is the best choice for a weeknight Creole dish. This recipe uses just one pan and a rotisserie chicken to shorten the prep time. Serve with okra, potatoes, black-eyed peas, and/or cornbread for a spicy, satisfying feast.
This is not your mom's creamy noodle casserole. After this dish, miso cream sauce will be your new go-to sauce for everything. It only has 3 ingredients, it's perfectly seasoned and creamy, and just thick enough to hold up to a good noodle. This entire casserole requires just 35 minutes and makes 12 cups.
Celebrate Friday with a vibrant and easy Southwestern-inspired meal. For perfectly toasted tortillas, first dip them in cold water. Heat in a nonstick skillet over high heat. After about 30 seconds, flip. Remove from skillet and cover with a towl to steam for 5 minutes. The ideal tortilla should be soft and moist with a hint of flakiness. Serve with black beans and margaritas-- Enjoy!
Make this bread over the weekend to seriously up your lunch game next week. We love the idea of a slice or two smothered in gravy, using this bread for a upgraded turkey sandwich, or using it to make a grilled cheese that's out-of-this-world. With just enough black pepper to make it spicy and herbs and duck fat to add richness, this bread is the epitome of savory and delicious. Duck fat can be found at specialty stores, but you can substitute chicken or turkey fat as well.
