Weeknight Rescue // March 2019 // Week 13

Welcome to our lucky number 13th week of the Weeknight Rescue. I hope you all are enjoying the longer days wherever you are. I’ve got some comforting (and healthy) favorites this week…and as always, a complete shopping list for this week’s meal plan.

INSTANT POT RICE AND VEGETABLE SOUP WITH LOTS OF LEMON

 

This humble soup is meant for the Instant Pot, but can be done on the stove if you so choose. Add shredded chicken or a can of chick peas if you want to a little more heft to your supper.

TURKEY TACO SALAD WITH CUMIN LIME DRESSING

When I crave the flavors of an old-school taco, but want something that’s on the lighter side, this is my fix for supper. It’s a filling main dish salad, but if you want something a little extra, consider filling the freezer with these fruity mango pops for dessert. 

SKILLET STEAK WITH CILANTRO CHIMICHURRI AND CRISPY POTATOES

Make the most of a pair of strip steaks by cooking them quickly in a hot skillet and serving them with a tangy, cilantro-spiked chimichurri sauce. On the side, nothing is better than a pile of crispy roasted potatoes. It’s strikes a slightly more “special occasion” note, perfect for a date night at home or for when company comes. 


TAHINI ALMOND BUTTER CHOCOLATE-DIPPED COOKIES

This is a perfect sweet fix when you want something on the healthier side. Simplify things a bit if you like, by stirring chocolate chips into the batter instead of dunking the cookies in melted chocolate (details on that in the recipe headnote). They make an excellent lunch box goodie or after school snack. A side of cold milk doesn’t hurt.

EASY EGG-IN-A-BAGEL BREAKFAST

A tasty twist on the classic egg-in-a-hole (also known as toad in a hold, one-eyed-jack, and winkie). This time the base is a thin slice of bagel rather than a standard slice of toast. Add a pile of spinach and a little cheese to the top for a boost of nutrition and flavor.
