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:
Creole Shrimp and Grits: This is a definite go-to recipe in the cookbook! I’ve already prepped all of the veggies for this dish and will use the slow cooker method for my grits. It is a family favorite dish I think you’ll enjoy too!
Chicken and Rice Casserole: This favorite comfort meal is so easy and delicious! It’s one of those meals that is so easy to make ahead and freeze for later, or keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days. If you make it the day you’re going to eat it for supper, it’s so simple too – just cook the chicken in the slow cooker, then prepare the casserole to pop in the oven for supper.
For my meal plan this week, I’m planning to cook plenty of chicken in the slow cooker to use later in the week for my Chicken Enchiladas.
Oven Roasted Asparagus: Prep the asparagus ahead by washing and trimming the ends so that you’re ready to pop this in the oven!
Chicken Enchiladas: I’m loving how much easier supper is tonight since I’ve cooked my chicken ahead. I also keep my homemade Enchilada Sauce on hand that I’ll use in these.
Shrimp and Avocado Salad: This is such a quick, cool and delicious salad we enjoy! I like to cook the shrimp ahead of time earlier in the day and refrigerate. Then I prepare the other ingredients in the salad and mix it all up when it’s time to serve. So good and so simple!
House Salad: I always keep a mixed green salad prepped and ready to go in the refrigerator. Makes suppers even easier during the week.
Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup: Ok, I know it’s hot most everywhere right now, but if you have fresh vegetables in your garden, they are absolutely perfect for vegetable soup!
Hope you have a great week!
