What to Cook for Dinner?
It’s the start of a brand new week. Which means it’s time to figure out what to eat.
When you meal plan you can avoid getting stuck for what to eat when 4 or 5 o’clock rolls around. If you don’t have your plan yet, it’s not too late. Below is what’s cooking at our house this week.
I picked up about 10 pounds of chicken last week to prepare for the freezer. It’s simple and easy to do and I love having meal starts waiting for me.
We are getting really low on chicken so was nice to restock.
As I was searching the freezer to take inventory, I found a package of Italian chicken and cooked chicken. So we will be enjoying them this week to use up what we have before more comes in.
It’s feeling a lot like soup season around here. Even though we have had nice sunny days recently, the air is cool and crisp. We’ll be enjoying hamburger soup this week to warm up a bit.
I’ll also be running the oven to cook the artichoke chicken and hamburger cups. It’s nice to warm the house up a bit with the oven instead of turning on the heat.
We haven’t had to turn on our heat yet, have you? I’m hoping to hold out a few more weeks.
Finally, we’ll be trying smashed burritos. I made them once and everyone loved them. My son dreamed them up. He wanted to smash burritos and cook them in the waffle iron. I wasn’t sure it would work too well. But it surprisingly worked out well the first time.
We are trying it again this week if they turn out well. I share how we made them on the blog soon.
I would love to know what’s cooking at your house this week too.
