Summer's winding down and we are gearing up for school in our casa! C heads to First Grade next Monday, while M has a couple more weeks to chill before starting the 3-Day Three's at her preschool. I am still hammering out the girls' Fall extra-curriculars, which will obviously factor into how much time I have to cook. I do try hard to put a home-cooked meal on the table 3 days a week (and then we plug in the usual well-chosen convenience and faster options dishes, like pre-marinated meats, scrambled eggs, pastas, etc.). My slow cooker, which has been collecting dust in a cabinet since May, is about to see the light of day again! Here's what I am thinking for next week:
Monday: Chicken Roll-ups with Goat Cheese and Arugula with a light salad
This dish is only five ingredients, but it takes a bit longer to prep. Monday is a half day of school for C, which means I will have a bit more time to pull everything together.
Tuesday: Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken with steamed brown rice and veggies
I'm thinking slow cooker for Tuesday since we have karate for C and gymnastics for M! So nice to come home to the work already done for you!
Wednesday: Easy Garlic Chicken with steamed baby carrots and potatoes
This looks like it will pull together quickly, but we will be packing for a family trip to a wedding in Lexington, KY over the weekend, so it may fall by the wayside. We shall see!
Thanks to Pinterest for all the new, fabulous ideas for quick dinners!
