What’s For Dinner?

Happy Leap Year and welcome to this week’s meal plan! In each week’s meal plan I’ll share with you what I plan to cook with pictures and links to my inspiration (or recipes similar to the ones I use). Please note that I don’t always follow these recipes, so use them at your own discretion! I will usually make note of the ingredients I use or what I may have done differently when I post my nightly dinner pic on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. So be sure to follow me, if you’re interested in seeing how my versions come out!

Here’s what’s for dinner this week:

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

I’ve had a craving for chicken pot pie for some reason! Must be this cold weather we’re having. I’ll be keeping it simple and using frozen mixed veggies and a pre-made pie crust. 

Parmesan Salmon

Baked Salmon with Parmesan Herb Crust, Quinoa, and Corn

I’ve really been enjoying the new salmon recipes I’ve been finding! I can’t wait to try this parmesan herb crusted one! Yum! As usual, I’ll be pairing it with foods I can mix it up with.

Denver Omelet

Baked Denver Omelet with Hashbrowns

Breakfast for dinner is always a winner around here! My husband loves IHOP’s Denver omelet, so I this one’s for him.

Chicken Corn Chowder

Chicken Corn Chowder

Another one of my hubby’s favorites! I’ve never made this before, so I’m making it a personal goal to make it tastier than the canned soup Joe Daddy loves.

Vegetarian Chili

For this meal I will simply dump a can of red chili beans into a pot with a can of black beans, a can of diced tomatoes, and some frozen corn with some salt and chili powder and let it cook til it’s nice and hot. Then I’ll serve it in a bowl with some shredded cheddar, sour cream and tortilla chips. You can’t get much easier than that…or much tastier.

Thanksgiving food

Mini Thanksgiving!

Yes, it’s February. No, I’m not quite ready for the holidays again, but my hubby brought home a huge frozen turkey a couple weeks ago and I’ve been racking my brain with what to do with it. I know I could just sub it in for any of my chicken dishes, but I just don’t wanna. I love Thanksgiving food and I really only ever eat it around Thanksgiving, so I figured I’d make a mini Thanksgiving feast! I’m thinking turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing and green beans. I’ll make enough to have plenty of leftovers to save myself having to think up what to do with the rest of the turkey or having to cook every single night like I normally do. We usually fry our Thanksgiving turkey so I’m kinda excited to see if I can bake one!
