Week of April 9th 

MondayStir fry with quinoa, broccoli, and salmon.  I used a cup of frozen broccoli instead of snap peas, cooking it on the stove top over medium high heat until soft. 



TuesdayPork chops with mashed potatoes and broccoli.


Wednesday – Chicken fajitas. I cooked one pound of chicken breasts and used half for this recipe and the other half in Thursday night’s meal.  Slice chicken into thin strips, season with fajita seasoning, and cook on stove over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until no long pink inside.  Remove from pan.  Add sliced bell pepper and onion and cook until soft.  I used a frozen mix from Trader Joe’s, but you can also use fresh. Heat wraps according to packaged directions. Add chicken, peppers, onions, sour cream, shredded cheese, and top with salsa! 

ThursdayStir fry with chicken, sliced bell peppers, and broccoli served over noodles.  YUM! I knew I wanted left overs of this, so I increased the quantities slightly. I used 2/3 cup soy sauce, 6 oz of pineapple juice, and cooked 3/4 box of linguine. This also makes a great meal for your little one! Mine scarfed it down.

FridayPesto chicken with blistered tomatoes. This recipe reminds me of SUMMER! Who else can’t wait for it to be here?!
