This Week On Our Table

This Week On Our Table


I’m glad you’re here to check out my new post series, “This Week on Our Table”.  Each week, I’ll post what we are planning to have for dinner for the week along with links to the recipes I use, or my personal recipes listed.  Additionally, I’ll also add substitutions when I have them, for allergies and sensitivities.

Following a fabulous spring break,  we’ll be getting back into the grind again. School, starts again tomorrow as well as a week filled with swim lessons, soccer, class at our local nature center, and so much more. I’m looking to keeping things quick and simple in the kitchen this week. I’ve even planned out the weekend because it’s filled from start to finish! Here’s what we are having, and the recipes I’m using to make them!

Enchilada Casserole:  This recipe is a favorite of ours. It’s super easy and it’s also great to reheat for leftovers!

Breakfast for Dinner: Bacon, Egg, & Maple Grilled Cheese :  Once a week my husband volunteers as an EMT for our local Ambulance Corps.  He doesn’t enjoy breakfast for dinner, but Nicholas and I both love it.  This week, we are going back to an old favorite.

Easy Weeknight Meals - JoyfullyMom

Sticky Pork Chops:  Sticky pork chops are a tasty way to change up your protein during the week, and these are fantastic.

Korean BBQ Beef:  This is a new favorite of ours.  My brother took us to dinner one night, and it was my first exposure to this tasty dish.  I serve it alongside a simple slaw, and if we are in the mood, some white jasmine rice.  Yum!

Grilled Lemon Chicken:  I have used Ina Garten’s recipe for grilled lemon chicken for years, and I wouldn’t change a thing.  It’s incredibly easy, and delicious.  I’ll usually just make some corn on the cob and baked potato.  Dinner couldn’t be easier.

Homemade Pizza – our recipe is simple.  Go to your favorite pizza shop and get a couple of already made pizza dough rounds.  We roll it out, spread sauce over it, along with cheese, cook it at 450 for 20 minutes (preheat your pan in the oven as the oven warms) and call it a day! Put out a bunch of fun toppings that the kids can choose from, and dinner is served!

Meatball Subs :  There certainly isn’t anything wrong with meatballs!  We usually have a mix of turkey, pork, and beef, and I often have them in the freezer ready to go.  This is my go-to recipe for making them for subs!  Make an extra batch of meatballs and serve them with pasta on Monday of the following week.  Talk about dinner on the table in no time!
