Weeknight Rescue // May 2019 // Week 20

What’s for dinner this week? I’ve got you covered with a tasty line-up for Weeknight Rescue. Find the complete shopping list at the bottom of the page.

Asian

CRUNCHY ASIAN-STYLE SALAD WITH CHICKEN OR TOFU SKEWERS

Crunchy Asian Salad with Chicken or Tofu

A light, bright recipe I’m 100 percent hooked on. A crunchy Asian-style slaw, it’s served with chicken or tofu skewers that get marinated in the same dressing used for the salad.

BASIL AND PISTACHIO PESTO PASTA WITH CHICKEN

The dish serves four, but the portion is on the smaller side, so if you have teenagers or hearty appetites, you might want to scale up the recipe (worse case you have leftovers, which are great for school or work lunches). If you need a MAJOR short cut, buy basil pesto at the market and assemble the rest according to the recipe.

TOMATO SOUP AND WAFFLE IRON GRILLED CHEESE

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a crave-worthy combination. In this version, the soup gets its richness from olive oil instead of cream and the sandwiches are done panini-style in an old-fashioned waffle iron. The duo is bound to win over kids and grown ups alike.

BLUEBERRY PECAN OATMEAL CUPS

Blueberry Pecan Oatmeal Cups - Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Made with rolled oats, ginger, pecans, and blueberries, these make a nutrient-packed breakfast that is portable, tasty, and can be made ahead of time. Store in the fridge (or freezer) and pull them out for quick breakfasts all week long.

CREAMY STRAWBERRY MILK

Skip the store-bought pink milk and opt for this sweet treat made without the artificial ingredients or loads of sugar. A good one for after school snack!

I will be making the oatmeal cups today!!!!
They look fantastic!
FYI I made your Applesauce Dump Cake from “PREP” ( one of the best cookbooks this spring says Food and Wine) it was so delicious I made it again to bring up to Twain Harte for the open house! I used Almond flour and Swerve brown sugar sweetener. Yummy!! Thank you Katie!💚
