Weekly Meal Plan #95
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 full of college football and family time! 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.
Buttermilk Ranch Dressing: This is one of my family’s favorite dressings for salads anyway so I will have this ready in my fridge too.
Chocolate No Bake Cookies: I’ll make these earlier in the day (or even the day before) in preparation for dessert and snacking!
Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry: This comfy, cozy and delicious recipe is perfect for a Sunday supper or a weeknight meal! And it’s one of my favorite make-ahead meals too! 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.
Best Vanilla Cake: Have you tried my Best Chocolate Cake yet? If so, this Vanilla Cake is the perfect sister cake to it! It’s so simple to make – it’s a one-bowl cake and absolutely delicious! Make this earlier in the day and enjoy for dessert!
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 (maybe me!) wants to make this into Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo.
Grilled Caesar Salad and Caesar Dressing: This salad has a tasty smoky flavor with just the bit of grilling you will do to the lettuce. I’ll use my grill pan and my cooktop to make it. I will also make my Caesar Dressing ahead of time. We like it so much, I almost always have some in the fridge.
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. It keeps well. I do recommend making your guacamole fresh before serving for best results!
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!
