Weekly Meals

Week 4/23 – 4/29

quesa.jpg  Sunday: Chicken Cheese and Pesto Quesadilla

We frequently have quesadillas after church on Sundays because they are quick and contains ingredients from the kitchen staples list! Use any type of cheese for this recipe. (I plan to spice it up a bit and use pepper jack cheese.) Add salsa or guacamole on the side to complete the dish. Serving size: 1 quesadilla


Avocado-Egg Salad Sandwiches with Pickled Celery Recipe:   Monday: Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

For anyone who has hard boiled Easter eggs left over, here’s a recipe for a upscale egg salad.


 :   Tuesday: Italian Herb Bruschetta Chicken

This recipe may look familiar to many of you because I’ve listed in on the blog in the past. It’s super quick to make and is one of my go to chicken recipes when meal planning gets overwhelming sometimes! Serving size: 4 ounces chicken


Pan-Grilled Halibut with Chimichurri Recipe:   Wednesday: Pan-Grilled Halibut with Chimichurri

Use any type of fish for this recipe! I especially love the mixture of rice, tomato, zucchini, and corn on the side. Fresh herbs work better for the chimichurri but if you don’t have any on hand, dried herbs could be used. Serving size: 1 fillet (5-6 ounces) with 1-2 Tbsp sauce and 3/4 cup rice mixture on side

 :   Thursday: Tahini-Marinated Chicken Thighs with Cucumber-and-Tomato Salad

Tahini is a Middle Eastern paste made from ground sesame seeds. If you do not prefer use it, italian dressing or any other type of marinade would work to compliment the cucumber tomato salad. I plan to use chicken tenderloin instead of chicken thigh. The chicken could be baked instead of grilled as well if you are short on time. Serving size: 4 ounces chicken, 1/2 cup rice, 1/2 cup salad

 :   Friday: Grilled Shrimp Tostadas with Lime

This recipe is a quick weekend night meal! Instead of the avocada topping, I plan to make a mango red bell pepper avocado salsa to top the tostadas. Serving size: 2 tostadas

Saturday: Date Night! 

Ours will be spent at the rodeo this Saturday. Plan a night with friends or family and enjoy the weekend!
