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 crispy, delicious wings are just right for a weekend full of football, family and friends! To prep the wings ahead, I get them cleaned and dried and wait to coat them right before baking. I have my Homemade Buffalo Sauce made ahead and in the refrigerator.
Buttermilk Ranch Dressing: This is usually always in my fridge as it’s one of my family’s favorite salad dressings.
Chocolate No Bake Cookies: I’ll make these earlier in the day, or even the day before, for dessert and snacking!
Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry: This cozy delicious recipe is perfect for a Sunday supper or a weeknight meal! It’s a great make-ahead meal too. If make ahead, it can be wrapped well and stored in the fridge the same day until ready to bake. It can be wrapped well, stored in air tight container and frozen as well. 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? This Vanilla Cake is the perfect sister cake to it! So simple to make – it’s absolutely delicious! Make this earlier in the day and enjoy for dessert.
Fettuccini Alfredo (Alfredo Sauce recipe): This classic Alfredo Sauce is absolutely scrumptious and the best I’ve ever tasted! It’s so easy to make and on the table in less than 30 minutes. I’m serving over fettuccini for tonight’s supper, but it’s perfect over many types of cooked pasta. Make extra chicken from the previous night supper in case someone wants to make this into Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo.
Grilled Caesar Salad and Caesar Dressing: This salad has a great smoky flavor with the bit of grilling to the lettuce. I make this with my grill pan and cooktop, so it is super easy to make. My family enjoys my Caesar Dressing often, so I will make it ahead of time. I almost always have some in the fridge. 🙂
Steak Fajitas: To get a head start on this meal, go ahead and prep the veggies and store in airtight containers in your refrigerator. We eat this salsa all the time, so it’s ready in my fridge. I like to make the guacamole fresh right before serving for best results.
Mushroom and Wild Rice Stuffed Peppers: This delicious meatless meal from my cookbook is so hearty, you won’t miss the meat! It’s perfect anytime as it is ready in under 30 minutes. To get a head start on these, cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds. Store the peppers in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to cook supper.
Have a great week!
