What to Cook for Dinner?
It’s Monday again and time to get ready for the new week. Having a plan for dinner can help you avoid the stress of what to cook for dinner at 4 pm, when the kids are grumpy and hungry.
This week on our meal plan, a few skillet dinners, eating from the freezer and using the slow cooker too.
I’m using up leftover ham from Easter in the cheesy ham and potatoes dish that is quick and easy to make in the slow cooker.
I have a few stovetop or skillet dishes for this week too. The pan-fried pork chops are quick and easy to make. Flour the pork chops and fry in a pan. I only use a little oil so they don’t get greasy.
The mushroom chicken is so good. A creamy sauce with mushrooms and chicken over egg noodles. So good. If you like a cheesy taste, add a sharp cheese to the sauce too.
In the oven, we’ll be making a quick dinner on the sheet pan with sausage and vegetables. It’s a one-dish meal and so easy to prepare.
Also in the oven is our mini meatloaves. If your family doesn’t like regular meatloaf, give the mini meatloaves a try. My kids gobble them up
