Another week has flown by. Here are some highlights from what we ate this last week. This was one of those weeks where we ditched our plans more than once for takeout or warming something up from the freezer. Some weeks are like that, but even with the upsets we still made some good things. Check them out below.
Crispy Tortellini with Peas and Bacon
This is a quick meal to pull together. We have never used prosciutto as the recipe calls for, but have always used bacon. We also always sub cream for the creme fraiche. We’ve even eaten it without any meat (though I think it tastes better with that tiny bit of protein for flavor). Our kid that doesn’t like cheese tolerates this, while the rest of us devour it.
These are a favorite at our house. We use our homemade tortillas and top them with scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, green chiles, bacon, sour cream, and salsa.
15 minute Egg Roll Bowls
I accidentally left the chili paste out of this 15 minute egg roll in a bowl so we tried to make up for it with siracha. It was much quicker than egg rolls and eaten without complaint.
Steak and Potatoes
Cooper choose this meal. He is probably the most carnivorous member of our family. We grilled steak, baked potatoes and served it with a salad. The ranch dressing is my favorite dressing and I almost always have a container of it in the fridge.
Cooper was also in charge of dessert this week and choose banana splits. We make this really easy magic shell sauce. We don’t even look up the recipe anymore it’s that easy.
Baked Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal
We were going to have peaches and cream baked oatmeal until I realized it was National Peanut Butter Day. This recipe was a first time one for us and it was pretty good. We were all out of almond milk and almost out of cow milk, so I whipped up some powdered milk from our food storage to bake this. We used the little bit of cow’s milk when serving.
Leftover Oatmeal for Breakfast
The next morning I reheated some of the oatmeal for breakfast and topped it with a few dollops of magic shell that were leftover from the banana splits. Yum!
Sheet Pan Nachos with Queso
The thing that took the longest with this recipe was assembling all the toppings. This dish was almost vegetarian, but we had a few pieces of steak leftover from a previous dinner that we didn’t want to go to waste. We didn’t use the queso dip in the original recipe, but used this family favorite from Pinch of Yum. The boy-who-doesn’t-like-cheese, ate chips with beans and quacamole.
That wraps up another week. Drop any questions or comments below and happy meal planning!
