April 16th - 22nd
A week of meal plans for your convenience. These aren't always my own recipes, as I love to try others out and maybe even tweak them for my own spin. But I aim to have fairly easy, family friendly meals. A downloadable + printable PDF of plans are available below as well as links to all recipes.
Waffles - We love to buy the premade Kodiak Waffles in the frozen section. They offer a few different flavors but chocolate chip and the cinnamon vanilla are two of our favs!
3 ripe or overripe bananas
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup oatmeal
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Let batter sit for a few minutes as the oatmeal will thicken the batter over time. Thin with any milk of your choice if it's too thick. We like to stir in chia seeds and mini chocolate chips.
Banana Muffins - I make the muffin recipe on the back of the Kodiak pancake mixes, add in chia seeds & mini chocolate chips!
Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs - place eggs on trivet and pour in 1 cup of water. Cook on manual for 5 minutes with a quick release. Then immediately place in an ice bath. This cooks the yolk through, reduce time for a less "hard boiled" egg.
Homemade Rice a Roni
2 cups water
1/4 cup butter
1 cup jasmine rice
thin spaghetti broken into small pieces
Better than Bouillion Chicken Base
Salt + Pepper to taste
In a pan on medium high heat, melt butter and add broken thin spaghetti pieces and let them darken. You want them pretty much burnt. Add in water and a couple tablespoons of chicken base and bring to a boil. Stir in rice and cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked through. Turn off heat, fluff with fork and salt + pepper to taste.
Pork Chops - we always season with Lawry's Black Pepper Seasoning and Smoked Paprika. Cook in airfryer at 375 degrees until they reach 140 degrees internal temp. Our airfryer has a probe which makes it so easy for perfectly juicy chops, everytime!
Lasagna - I have a pan of premade lasagna from Costco that I will set on delay bake!
