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!
I've had a lot happening lately, personally, as well as being super busy at work. So tons of easy meals on this weeks meal plans.
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.
Egg Salad - I grated hard boiled eggs on the biggest side of my box grater. Stirred in mayo, zucchini relish and salt & pepper to taste. Didn't measure as you just add until you get to the consistency you want.
Air Fryer Tuscan Pork - I was at Costco and picked up the preseasoned tuscan pork tenderloins sliced up. I will air fry at 400 degrees for 10-14 minutes until desired doneness.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Cut brussels in half, toss in olive oil, garlic salt & pepper. Roast at 425 for 20 minutes or until they get a nice browning on them. You can also add some bread crumbs and grated parmesan cheese to step them up a notch!
Smash Burgers (my husbands deal - he makes them)
80/20 ground beef (higher fat content makes this work better) Lawry’s black pepper seasoning American cheese Toasted & buttered hamburger buns
Make hamburger into about 1/4 pound balls. Each burger takes 2 balls.
Heat a flat top griddle on medium high heat. When it’s good and hot, use a flat Metal spatula to “smash” your burger very thin. Season and Cook on one side until outside is crispy, flip and do the same. Then layer a piece of cheese on one and top with another patty. Place on bun and enjoy!
Tuna Melt - mix canned tuna fish with some avocado mayo. Spread on a piece of bread and top with slice of tomato and cheese of choice then top with another piece of bread. Butter outsides and grill until golden on each side!
