Weeknight Rescue//Fall 2023//Week 40

carrot mac and cheese

I’ve got a whole lot of comfort lined up for the coming week, with plenty of easy recipes. And if you’ve never made my Whole-Grain Crumble Bars, they are a top ten in our house (and ship well in the event that you want to send some love to a far off friend).

Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup

Definitely one of my top soups of all time, this is both filling and very good for you. Red lentils break down to thicken the soup while coconut milk gives it a creamy kick. If you happen to have homemade broth on hand, this is a worthy soup to use it.

Tex Mex Skillet Supper

Tex Mex flavors join forces in this simple, crowd-pleasing recipe. It’s pretty quick to make and excellent served as is or with warm tortillas and avocado on the side.

The Perfect Omelet

If you have cooking fatigue, this is a good fix for dinner. Add a green salad tossed with a simple vinaigrette on the side and you have perfectly suitable supper.

Creamy Carrot Mac and Cheese

Food that comforts and nourishes pretty much sums up this dish (I did a demo on Instagram if you want to have a sneak peek). Creamy carrots blend seamlessly into this mac and cheese thanks to their mild sweetness and the fact that they’re the same color as Cheddar cheese. I like to serve this with sautéed greens, such as this Crispy Skillet Kale.

Tangy Shrimp Skewers with Tangy Avocado Sauce

This dish is all about the flavorful sauce that can be whirled in a blender in a matter of minutes. A combination of fresh cilantro, avocado, scallions, and lime juice, it’s a terrific way to brighten up a plate of skewered shrimp. If you don’t care for cilantro, make the sauce with fresh basil instead.

Flavorful and Flexible Chopped Winter Salad

This recipe is a longtime staple in my house. Enjoy it for lunch or as a dinner side dish. Add diced chicken (this slow cooker method is a good one) to make it a main dish supper. It will last a day or two in the fridge, which makes it a great leftover for lunch.

Whole-Grain Crumble Bars

Tangy jam serves as the filling for these terrific bars, built on a base of oats, pecans, and brown sugar. They are as tasty as they are wholesome. They also pack up like a dream, whether in a school lunch box or to ship off to friends in far away places.
