Weeknight Rescue // February 2021// Week 8

sheet pan chicken dinner with potatoes and brussels sprouts

I imagine it’s been a rough week for plenty of you (I see you Texas). I hope this meal plan provides some comfort to get you through. Stay warm, friends.

Best Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Vegetables

To me, pot roast is the very definition of comfort cooking. It’s hearty and soul satisfying. The slow cooker does a terrific job with pot roast, but you can also roast it in the oven (instructions for that are in the recipe headnote). 

Kale and Crispy Chickpea Caesar Salad

Kale and Crispy Chick Pea Caesar Salad

This scrumptious kale caesar is a good jumping off point for dinner. Adding a couple of grilled and sliced chicken breasts or maybe a bowl of tomato soup on the side is all it takes to make it a meal.

Oven Baked Vegetarian Tofu Parmigiana

Oven Baked Tofu Parmesan

Here’s a good one for meatless Monday. The tofu is breaded and baked until crispy and then layered with sauce and cheese. Add steamed or roasted broccoli and dinner is done. Leftovers are tasty a day or two later.

Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner

This meal is all about simplicity and no clean up. Everything goes on a single sheet pan and into the oven. If you don’t feel confident about carving a chicken, this play-by-play may help. If you feel like dessert, Chocolate Pot De Creme would make a perfect chaser for this meal. 

A Perfect Omelet

How to make the perfect omelet

If you have cooking fatigue (or haven’t made it to the market), this is a good fix for dinner. Add a simple salad on the side and you have perfectly suitable supper.

Wild Blueberry Yogurt Parfait with Maple Seed Brittle

A simple yogurt and fruit parfait elevated with a crunchy brittle made of quinoa, seeds, and pecans. With very little added sugar and all the nutritious upsides of wild blueberries, it’s as suitable for breakfast as it is for dessert.  

Best Balsamic Vinaigrette

Best Balsamic Vinaigrette

I like to have a jar of dressing on hand for quick lunch and dinner salads and this is a good one. Versatile, tasty, and easy to make.
