It's the last Monday of the month and I'm on Meal Plan #4! If you've missed any of the other weeks make sure to check back to get ideas for your weekly meals.
This week I'm sharing some real comfort food with you. I feel like this month has been so cold and so snowy that I all I want is warm and comforting food.
That's why I'm sharing my Chicken Pot Pie. This is a hearty comfort food with homemade gravy and a delicious crust. Plus I always make two and put one in the freezer for another night. I figure if you're putting in the work for one you might as well double it and have one ready to pop in the oven for later.
I'm also sharing my Instant Pot Mississippi Roast. This is a great recipe because it makes a ton. My husband and I usually eat it over top of mashed potatoes or noodles the first night and then we make French Dips out of it the second day to turn the leftovers into a totally new meal.
In addition to those yummy main dishes I have two awesome dessert recipes you're going to want to make for St. Patrick's Day. One of them includes Thin Mint Cookies so if you haven't paid a visit to your favorite Girl Scout you better get on it!
So sit back, grab a notepad, and get ready to plan your meals for the week. If you try any of these recipes I'd love for you to come back and share what recipe you made and what you think about it!
Meal Plan Mondays #4 : Easy Recipes for Weeknight Meals
Plan your weekly menu with these entrees, side dishes, desserts, and breakfast recipes!
Instant Pot Mississippi Roast
This meal is delicious served over top of mashed potatoes or noodles and served with rolls or the maple cornbread below. It's also easily repurposed into French Dip Sandwiches the next day.
Baked Eggplant Parmesan
This baked version of eggplant parmesan will make less mess than frying it and it tastes delicious. Serve with the pear and pecan winter salad and rolls for a tasty dinner. You can also make this ahead of time and refrigerate overnight before reheating in the oven the next day.
Chicken Pot Pie (Freezer Meal)
Make a double batch and freeze one using the enclosed instructions so you have an easy meal for another night! You can also "cheat" and use refrigerated pie crust instead of making your own. Since it's a meal all in one pot serve it with the Black Midnight Cake or Thin Mint Stuffed Cookies for dessert.
Buffalo Chicken Burrito Bowls: CSA Tuesdays
Best served over rice. You can also serve with tortilla chips and use them to pick up the goodies from the bowl.
This is a whole dinner in one pan! Serve with the maple cornbread as a side dish or choose to make the macadamia nut butter crisps for dessert.
Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Bake
A delicious and easy to make side dish. You can make this one the day before and heat it up whenever you need it. Serve with chicken, beef, or even fish.
A delicious twist on the classic cornbread. Serve it as a side dish with pasta or chili.
Pear and Pecan Winter Salad
This is the perfect light and delightful salad to go with any heavy winter meal. Serve with a balsamic vinaigrette or honey lemon dressing.
Black Midnight Cake
A deep and rich chocolate cake decorated for St. Patrick's Day! Change up the frosting and serve it for any holiday or birthday!
Thin Mint Stuffed Cookies
It's Girl Scout cookie season andn these chocolate cookies stuffed with Thin Mint Cookies are outrageously good! Because of their green color they are great for St. Patrick's Day!
Macadamia Nut Butter Crisps
Delicate and buttery cookies are great served with coffee or tea and are the perfect after school (or work!) treat.
