Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of February 6th
This satisfying main is a great make-and-freeze dish because it serves 12. Enjoy it for a meatless Monday dinner and again for lunch later in the week. If you're freezing the soup, be sure to cool it completely before adding the tortellini or they will absorb too much liquid and lose their shape.
This zingy relish only gets better as it sits, so make it a couple of days ahead, if you like. You can also dice the cherry tomatoes and serve the relish with whole-grain tortilla chips for a snack. If you don't prefer grouper, try another flaky fish like halibut, cod, or even salmon.
A chicken version of the classic stroganoff flavors will restore you on any winter weeknight. This dish is kid-friendly, parent-approved, and too easy not to make.
Traditional fried rice gets a nutty spin with the addition of cashews, peanut butter, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Use precooked brown rice for a super fast dinner dish. Try serving with a fried egg, extra veggies, or a protein like the beef suggested below.
Thai Beef Stir-Fry
We've switched the sweet, BBQ style sauce for a creamy, nutty Swiss cheese. This simple sandwich is a filling crowd-pleaser that's sure to make dinner prep much easier. Feel free to sub whatever bun you desire.
As delicious as cold, last-night's pizza can be for breakfast, some occasions call for a little something extra. Perfectly cooked eggs, tender heart-shaped dough with a crisp bottom, and traditional hot Italian sausage make the cutest morning pizza.
