All dinner recipes are designed to serve four, unless noted.
Monday: Garlicky Breadcrumb Pasta with steamed broccoli.
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken with brown rice. This makes around eight servings, so you will definitely have leftovers for lunch on Wednesday!
Wednesday: Apple Cider Sauced Pork Loin Chops served with couscous and roasted brussels sprouts (lightly toss sprouts in evoo, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast at 400F till crispy on the edges, about 35 minutes).
Thursday: Cheeseburger Pasta with green salad.
Saturday: Saturday Smorgasbord – perfect for a movie night with the fam or entertaining. Corny Dogs, veggies and Red Pepper Hummus, and fresh fruit with Honey Yogurt Dip (sub fat free Greek Yogurt with a dash of vanilla extract for the vanilla yogurt). Everybody makes their own plate!
Sunday: Easy Peasy Pea Soup (sub vegetable broth for chicken broth for fewer groceries) with your choice of bread or roll. This recipe makes around six servings. Make a double batch and you’ll have a few easy lunches for later in the week.
Snacks: Have you tried Kale Chips? Well, you should. They are surprisingly addictive, and kale is chock full of vitamin goodness.
Dessert: Sneaky brownies. Why are they sneaky? They are hiding some pureed spinach and carrots. I won’t tell if you won’t!
