Weeknight Rescue // February 2020 // Week 9

No Yeast Whole-Grain Cinnamon Rolls

Greetings friends! Lots of good stuff in store this week, starting with these Whole-Grain Cinnamon Rolls. They’re just the thing to bang out on a Sunday morning to go with your coffee (or milk) and the newspaper. Enjoy.

TURKEY TACO SALAD

This has always been a popular dinner in our house, especially given that it’s a salad. Serve on its own, or add a side of guacamole and chips.

SHEET PAN CHICKEN DINNER

A complete meal on a single sheet pan? What’s not to love. Potatoes, Brussels, and chicken all cook at about the same rate, give or take, so it makes meal prep easy. Clean up is a snap, too (and no additional salads or sides needed for this one-pan supper).

GREEK PIZZA

Pizza with pourable crust

This is a good weeknight pizza, since its crust is one you stir together like batter, with no need to knead or rise. Make a double batch and freeze the extras for school lunches.

SAUSAGE, CABBAGE, AND APPLE SKILLET

Sausage with cabbage and apples

I’m always a sucker for a one-skillet supper, especially one that you can have on the table in under 20 minutes. I like to serve this with coarse Dijon mustard on the side.

CRISPY AVOCADO TACOS

One of the quickest recipes on the site! Serve with a side of beans along with cut up cucumber, jicama, and other raw vegetables doused with lime and chili. Alternatively, this Mexican Slaw is delicious with tacos. Got avocado-shy kids? Just make the kid’s tacos with tortillas and cheese and serve the avocado on the side. Who knows….they may just try it one of these days.

WHOLE GRAIN CINNAMON ROLLS

If you’re looking for a tasty project this weekend, check out these Cinnamon Rolls. They’re less fussy than most, since there is no yeast and no rise involved. They’re not quite as fluffy as some you may have tried — in part because they’re made with whole-grain and almond flours — but there’s no shortage of pecans, tangy glaze, or wholesome goodness. I’m crazy about them.

VEGETARIAN CHINESE CHICKENLESS SALAD

Add this to your work or school lunch repertoire. You can chop up the greens and veggies on Sunday to use for the next day or two. Assembly is pretty darn quick.
