Easy recipes for a busy week!

Monday, September 10, 2012

My husband and I both work full time. I am blessed with a husband that can and will cook during the week. Normally, since he gets off work earlier than I do, he'll dinner before I get home (Yes, I'm lucky, and I love him, and he's all MINE!).  Once in a while, I try to put something in the Crockpot or put something together the night before... but I have to admit, that's a rare occasion. Grilling, slow-cooker, casseroles, and stir-fries are our go-to dinner options weekly. 

Easy Peasy Dinners = Easy Peasy Leftover Lunches

Salsa chicken, greek yogurt and carrots

Crockpot Salsa Chicken
4 frozen chicken boneless breasts
1 jar of salsa 
1 pint of sour cream 
1 can of black beans
Place chicken in the crockpot, pour the salsa, sour cream, and beans. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Shred chicken. Serve as chicken tacos with tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, and other preferred toppings.

Grilled chicken sausages, steamed edamame, 
baked sweet potato fries, and watermelon

Stir-fried beef & cabbage, steamed broccoli and greek yogurt

Simple Ground Beef & Cabbage Stirfry
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 med. onion, sliced
1 med tomato, sliced
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 head of cabbage, coarsely shredded
soy sauce/salt/pepper

Brown ground beef and drain. Set aside. Saute garlic and onion and tomatoes in 1T of oil. Add ground beef and cabbage. Add soy sauce (3T+ depending on preferred taste), salt and pepper. Stir frequently until cabbage is cooked.  Serve with rice.

This is a simple way, to stirfry vegetables. Change it up by using chicken, pork, or shrimp. Add sliced carrots, green beans, snow peas, or whatever vegetables you have on hand.

I make my salsa chicken very similar except I put cream cheese!
