This week I’ll be running the oven almost every night. We’ll be having cheesy tuna casserole. I make this dairy free and we all enjoy it. Kinda like a mac and cheese with tuna so yummy.

We’ll be enjoying a couple freezer meals too. I’ll be broiling the teriyaki chicken this week for one meal.

Another evening we’ll be eating stir fry chicken. I make the stir-fry sauce, drop the sliced chicken in so all I need to do is thaw and put it into the skillet with a few veggies and our dinner is done.

We eat this over rice, it’s a great way to use up vegetables in the crisper drawer before they go wilt and die.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

I love cinnamon rolls but many recipes take hours to make. But this recipe can be done in a little over an hour and the rolls turn out so good. Plus there’s a step by step video of the recipe. Which is super helpful if you haven’t made cinnamon rolls from scratch before.

  1. Seeing the cheesy tuna casserole on your menu just brought back so many good memories of eating it when I was younger. I might have to try making one without the noodles to put over lettuce so that it fit with our lower-carb diet.

    Thanks for all the great dinner ideas!

    1. I hadn’t made it for years until I discovered a recipe for dairy free cheese sauce. Then I started making it again. We all enjoy it.

      You might be able to eat it with Zero Shirataki noodles. They only have 4g of carbs, is that carb friendly enough for THM?
