March 26th - April 1st
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.
This is my busiest time of year. Travelling for hockey and tax season... so lots of breakfasts at the rink and pizza at the pool!
Our bathroom and bedroom remodel has mostly wrapped up and we are moving back into our house so I need easy meals so I can continue working late and working on our house... hockey is over which is happy and sad. I look forward to life slowing down for a minute but always love watching my kiddo do what he loves. Few more weeks and I'll get back into more "actual cooking" as well as weekly videos! Stay tuned.
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.
Mac & Cheese and Panko Chicken - both from Costco. I picked up a premade Costco mac and cheese and threw it in the freezer for when I'd need it. The panko chicken is in the frozen section and my kids LOVE it. Will serve with some veggies and dip.
Yoshida's Peanut Butter Chicken
1 cup yoshida's teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup peanut butter
Mix yoshida's with peanut butter and set aside. Prepare chicken however you want - then pour sauce into pan with chicken and heat through. Serve over rice or noodles.
Fish Sticks - my kids love the Trident brand fish sticks!
