Sharing our Weekly Meal Plan with make-ahead tips, freezer instructions, and ways to make supper even easier!
Friday: Family Night Out
MEAL PLAN TIPS:
Baked Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wings: These wings are perfect for the weekend whether you are tailgating, watching the game at home or just enjoying time with your friends and family!
I will have my Homemade Buffalo Sauce made ahead of time and in the fridge. I will go ahead and have my wings cleaned and dried and waiting to coat them before baking.
Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry: This comfy, cozy and delicious recipe is perfect for a Sunday supper or a weeknight meal!
This can be made ahead of time, wrapped well and stored in the fridge the same day until ready to bake or it can be wrapped well, stored in air tight container and frozen. Today, I’ll assemble my pot pies a bit earlier so that I’m ready to bake right before supper.
Fettuccini Alfredo (Alfredo Sauce recipe): This classic Alfredo Sauce is scrumptious and comforting – the best I’ve personally tasted! And it’s so easy to make and on the table in less than 30 minutes. Perfect over cooked pasta, tonight it is served over fettuccini. I will have extra chicken cooked from the previous night supper in case someone wants to make this into Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo.
Steak Fajitas: To get a head start and reduce time even more, go ahead and prep all the veggies and store in airtight containers in your refrigerator. You can also make your salsa earlier in the week as you have time. I do recommend making the guacamole fresh before serving for best results.
Shrimp Scampi: This favorite is ready in 15 minutes! The pasta can cook the same time as the shrimp, making this a quick and easy weeknight meal that is elegant enough for entertaining too!
Mushroom and Wild Rice Stuffed Peppers: This delicious meatless meal from my cookbook is so hearty, you’ll never miss the meat! Ready in under 30 minutes and always a hit when I make it! To get a head start on these, go ahead and cut the peppers in half and get all the seeds out. Then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to cook supper.
Have a great week!
