My ten year old is going to start making dinner on Monday nights. She gets to plan and prepare the meal for that night. I’m excited to (hopefully) pass on my love for cooking and also have some good discussions about healthy and balanced meals. How do you involve your family in meal preparation?
Monday- Jennika Cooks!
Wednesday – Steak, German Potato Salad, Asparagus
Sticking with our Wednesday German Theme…sort of. PS there are so many great steak recipes out there. I like a simple, well grilled steak that’s just barely cooked. Did you know you should let your raw steak come to room temperature before cooking it? Also slathering butter on it before cooking never hurts either. 😉
Thursday – BBQ Chicken Pizza, Green Salad
This is another favorite. I have a great pizza dough recipe, but for this pizza I highly recommend using PW’s recipe.
Friday – Pad Thai
We haven’t had pad thai in ages. It’s one of my favorite quick and healthy Thai dishes. I don’t strictly follow any recipe for this. For example, I think bean sprouts are hard to get these days, so I’ll substitute some other type of vegetable, spinach maybe? I also like to use firm tofu as my protein. Anyhow, this is a good basic recipe.
