Monday: Butternut Harvest Chili
This warm, rich chili is a perfect start to the week. Use frozen carrots and squash for this, and you'll have dinner on the table in 30 min. Hint: Save the rest of the tomato paste from this recipe... you'll need it for dinner Wednesday!
Tuesday: Salsa Chicken & Roasted Broccoli
Toss this chicken in the slow cooker after breakfast, and it will be ready by dinnertime. We would serve it with tortillas and plain yogurt (included on your shopping list), but you can put it on rice instead. Add our Roasted Broccoli as a side dish that everyone will love, and save the 3rd head of broccoli for dinner Thursday.
This dish is SO easy. You'll need less than 30 min to whip it up at the end of the day. Serve mixed greens with olive oil and vinegar dressing on the side to balance it out. (Shopping list includes double the pasta ingredients to feed 4.)
Thursday: Anytime Pizza & Cucumber Dill Salad
No one will complain about having pizza for dinner! Use up that 3rd head of broccoli (included on the shopping list), or add veggies of your choice. Let the kids build theirs as a fun activity, then quickly throw together a Cucumber Dill Salad to round out the meal. (Shopping list includes double the pizza ingredients to feed 4.)
