What to Cook for Dinner?

Monday is here yet again, funny how it comes once every week even if we are not ready.

If you haven’t made your meal plan for this week, I hope our meal plan can give you a few ideas.

We won’t be eating anything fancy this week, just simple easy dinners.

I made meatballs when I purchased 15 pounds of ground beef recently and those are on our menu plan this week, as barbecued meatballs. It’s an easy meal since the meatballs are already made.

We haven’t had spaghetti in awhile and it just sounded good this week, it on our menu too. I find the simplest meals can often be the most delicious too.

We’ll also be having enchiladas this week made in the crock pot. They are super simple to make and so good too. No rolling at all, these are layered enchiladas. 

Have you ever used your waffle iron to cook dinner? We use it to cook so many things. I make grilled sandwiches in it.

And this week for dinner we will be making pizza pockets in the waffle iron.

I make a batch of no rise pizza dough and homemade pizza sauce too. Then everyone gets to pick their toppings or I guess I should say, fillings and we cook them in the waffle iron. 

They turn out crisp on the outside. They are so good. 

What’s cooking at your house this week?

  1. I’m also making some easy meals this week. My favorite is taco night, where I just brown some ground beef with some taco seasoning, then put chips, salsa, sour cream, lettuce and chopped tomatoes on the table. Everyone makes a pile of chips, meat and lettuce on their plates and tops it with salsa and sour cream. It’s so easy to throw together, but is pretty tasty!

    Hope you have a great week!
