Jen's Dinner Plan Sept 22-28

Need some new ideas for dinner meals? Here is Jen’s weekly dinner menu with notes: 


Sunday: Roasted Chicken with Zucchini and Sundried Tomatoes

  • This was  one of those dishes where you combine some stuff and see how it works out. 

  • In a large skillet with olive oil, I sauteed sliced onion, chopped garlic, sliced zucchini, and chopped sun dried tomatoes over medium heat until onion and zucchini were almost cooked through. I seasoned with salt and pepper and added a little crushed red pepper. Then, I added leftover roasted chicken from a whole chicken I bought for last Saturday Night’s dinner and cooked until chicken was heated through. 

  • This was sooooo yummy! 


Monday: Grilled Cod and Mixed Greens

  • Cod seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled on a grill pan. 

  • Mixed greens accompanied with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice.


Tuesday: Steak and Grilled Asparagus 

  • Steak was sliced sirloin, seasoned with salt and pepper, grilled on the grill pan. 

  • Steak was removed and asparagus was grilled. 


Wednesday: Slower Cooker Chicken, Potato, and Carrot Soup with Kale

  • I created this soup as a better alternative to chicken noodle soup.

  • Kale added the greens I wanted, but it is totally optional. 

  • In the bottom of a bowl, I placed torn pieces of raw kale then poured the cooked soup over the kale which then softens it and makes it the right texture in the soup. 

Thursday: Fundraising Event

  • In honor of one of my dear friends whose daughter has Rett, I attended a Reverse Rett Fundraiser.

  • Heavy hors d’oeuvres were served. I stuck with the roasted brussel sprouts, small steak bites, and club soda with lime. 

Friday: Dinner Out - Honeygrow

  • Honeygrow has salads and stir fries. I like that you can build your own in addition to a selection of already created options. 

  • I had stir fry of zoodles, mushrooms, snap peas, broccoli, and beef. 

  • They also have yogurt bowls with fun toppings. I shared an apple and pear one with my daughter.

Saturday: Wednesday Leftovers

  • I was at workshop all day, so I was glad to have leftovers to easily warm up for dinner.

Let me know if you try any of these recipes or have good ones of your own to share.
