A Week of Dinners

Sometimes it is really hard to come up with dinner ideas for the week, even though there are a shit ton of recipes out there. Sean and I tend to get stuck in a rut of the same few easy recipes that we ultimately get tired of, and I don’t know why with how many recipes are out there.

While watching a Jessica Braun video a few weeks ago and she talked about how she and her husband changed the way they set up their weekly menu. Like me, Jessica and her husband would try to make a month long dinner menu, buy almost everything, and then have food go bad because they skipped a meal here and there. Her solution, and now mine, is to only plan four or five meals a week giving you two or three days for left overs or nights out.

So I wanted to share a week of dinners. Last week we did five dinners with one leftovers night and my birthday dinner.

Here are the recipes!

Hello Friends! I hope you all are doing good! Today I wanted to share one of my favorite new recipes. Spicy Garlic Noodles with Chicken.

I’ve included photos of the finished product as well as the making so you can kind of see what mine looks like. Happy eating and I hope you enjoy!

My Favorite WW Recipes

Sharing a weight loss journey can be hard for some people and I am one of those people. So instead I figured why not just share the things I am enjoying with in my weight loss journey. One thing I have always enjoyed is cooking and baking, but when it comes to WW, formally Weight Watchers, it can sometimes be hard to find recipes that both Sean and I will eat and both love.

So here are a few of the recipes that over time I have found that we both love.

Sesame Beef Tacos

This post contains a referral link.

I have no idea why I haven’t shared this recipe yet but it is one of my favorite Hellofresh recipes! Needless to say, but I will, when ever this recipe comes up as an option on my Hellofresh account I get multiples of it.

The first time I got this recipe I was a little put off by the name sesame tacos because the only tacos I’ve ever had are from Mexican restaurants and our versions at home. The combination of taco and sesame beef didn’t really make since in my head but after making this recipe I found a new favorite go to dinner.

Recipes No One Uses Anymore

Let me start off by saying that I know that the title of the post is a broad statement. However, many of these recipes have been long forgotten and never ended up being passed down through the family even though many of them used to be everyday essentials for families.

Have you ever looked at old family photos from the holidays, looked at the table and just said, “What is that jello mold?” I think most of us have at one time or another wondered how some of the older generation could stomach some of the recipes of the past.

Monster Mash Buffalo Sauce Recipe

Happy Sunday my loves. With the weather getting warmer I decided today is the perfect day to release my semi-Homemade recipe for buffalo sauce. Now this sauce has been called a lot of names including burning b-hole sauce, slappy slappy sauce, ow sauce, but I call it Monster Mash sauce because it packs a monster amount of spice.

Cheeseburger Pizza with No Yeast Dough

Pizza…Pizza…Pizza! We all, well most people, like or love pizza and Sean is no exception to the love of pizza. One of this favorite pizzas is probably meat lover but he also loves Cheeseburger pizza. I believe he first had it at a restaurant we went to once but he fell in love with it.

Personally I didn’t really like the pizza from the restaurant, which was years ago, but I figured I would give it a try at home. However, I ran into a little trouble when I looked into my pantry.

No yeast… I am the kind of baker that has a stock of ingredients but for some reason I didn’t have any yeast in stock. The most basic dough recipe is flour, baking soda, water, salt and some kind of fat either butter or oil. If rolled thin enough this most basic dough recipe can make a nice crispy flat bread or if left a bit thicker it can turn out to be a soft crust. I like the thin crispy crust better.
