What I'd really like to do is share some pictures from Christmas but Blogger is being a pain in the butt and won't let me upload any photos. So, in an attempt to get back in the habit of menu planning and blogging, I thought I'd post this week's dinner menu. Eating healthy is so much easier when I have a plan. Otherwise, it's 8pm before I realize everything is frozen and we end up eating takeout.
I've probably mentioned this before but I typically plan four or five meals per week to allow for dinner out, leftovers, and the occasional "I don't want to cook tonight, let's have PB&J" situation. Here's what we're having this week:
Turkey Zucchini Burgers with Oven Fries & Veggies - Don't be scared of adding zucchini to your turkey burgers. You can't taste the zucchini but it keeps the super lean turkey from being dry. They're delicious!
Turkey Sausage Pizza with Salad - Homemade pizza is my standby, easy to throw together meal. Sometimes I have the Pioneer Woman's pizza dough in the freezer, sometimes I use the Pillsbury crust in a can (making it not quite homemade, but whatever. It tastes fine.). As long as I've got cheese, I can make a pizza using whatever else I find in the fridge. It's a great way to use up leftover meat & veggies.
Spinach Pasta with Grilled Chicken
Chicken Tostadas & Salad with Cilantro Pepita Dressing
The Cilantro Pepita Dressing is a copy cat of the El Torito Mexican Caesar Salad dressing, for those of you who know El Torito. I cannot get enough of this stuff. When it's in my fridge, I find myself looking for things to dip in it between meals. Veggies and chips are good options but my finger works in a pinch. :) The recipe I've linked to is halved from the original recipe but it still makes a lot of dressing. Share some with a friend. They'll thank you.
