Here’s what I’m making this week.


Monday– Ravioli w/ Peas in a butter sauce

Because my boo’s family was in town this weekend, we didn’t have a chance to shop Sunday as we normally do. Since we’ll be shopping tonight, I’m making a quick & easy dinner. I’ll toss cooked, packaged cheese ravioli with peas & a few tablespoons of butter. Then top with grated parmesan & serve alongside a green salad. Simple & delicious.

Tuesday– Chicken Tikka Masala over rice

This slow cooker recipe is great. I like to serve it over jasmine rice with warm naan.

Wednesday– Chicken Caesar Wraps

My boo is all about wraps, so I’ll be rolling up some chicken, parmesan, & romaine topped with this dressing in a whole wheat wrap.

Thursday– Chicken Gyros w/ salad

I’ll make this recipe for the gyros & this recipe for the salad.

Friday– Chicken w/ rice & veg.

A classic go-to. I’ll season the chicken with poultry seasoning & serve it over rice pilaf with sautéed carrots & zucchini.

Saturday– Eat Out

Sunday– Beef Chili w/ Fritos

I’ll brown a pound of ground beef seasoned with salt & then drain the fat. Then I’ll sauté half an onion, 2 bell peppers, & a clove of garlic in a bit of olive oil. I’ll dump that into the slow cooker along with one can each pinto, kidney, black, & chili beans. 8 oz of tomato sauce & one diced jalapeño go in as well. To season, I’ll add ½ tsp ground oregano, ½ tbsp ground cumin, 1 tbsp chili powder, a tiny pinch of cayenne, & a pinch of salt. Check the seasoning half way through & adjust as needed. Cooked on low, this chili is perfection in 4 hours. I serve it up with sour cream, cheddar, & Fritos.

Weekly Dessert– Fudge Popsicles

An ice cream truck staple you can make at home!
