a weekly plan for dinner

So I have found that in two weeks time, I am able to try 5-6 new recipes.  The rest of the days are linked together by leftovers, family favorites, old standbys, and [yes] frozen pizzas!  I hope to post In the Kitchen-A Weekly Plan twice a month.  If you like them and find them helpful, please share them with friends.  This week it was finally time to admit I have a “small” problem with butternut squash.  I seriously cannot get enough of it.  My new motto, “It’s always better with butternut squash!  Even tacos.

I hope you find at least one meal to add to your weekly menu.  Have a lovely weekend.

1.  Barbecue Chicken Sandwich With Sautéed Corn, Edamame, and Pickles

My husband voted this his top meal!  And it take less than 30 minutes from start to finish.  The sauteed corn, edamame and pickles was surprisingly delicious.

2.  Tomato-Basil Soup

Homemade tomato soup.  Simple ingredients, but full of taste.  I only used 1 cup of basil and it was plenty.  This is dairy free as well, so win-win for us! {Only 103 calories per serving} Served these with grilled ham and cheese.

3.  Pasta with Bacon, Squash and Sage

I loved this pasta.  My husband thought the sage was bit overwhelming. I didn’t mind.  The bacon on top was full of awesome.

4.  Butternut Squash and Bean Tacos

Yes, another recipe with butternut squash.  [Remember, these were our meals over two weeks.  I keep myself in check and only serve it once a week].  These were hearty and filling.  Great fall comfort food.

5.  Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Parmigiana Sandwiches

SUNDAY DINNER!  You have to make this.  It took me minutes to prep and it cooked all day.  The sandwiches were full of flavor.  We had a ton of leftovers, so we used it as pasta sauce the next night.

6.  Grilled PB & Banana Sandwich

WEEKEND BREAKFAST [or late night treat].  This grilled sandwich is to-die-for.  Butter and cinnamon come together to make magic.  Please try this….
