Meatballs, Zucchini & Some Fast Week-Night Meals

Posted on Sun 08/18/13 in Dinner Stress series

Funny blurb about the zucchini-dish…

Sonny Boy (who was told if he had a piece of pie at 3 in the afternoon that he would have to eat his whole dinner still): “What are we having?”
Creative Mom: “We’re gonna try something new tonight.”
Sonny Boy: “Well (hesitation) I may not eat it all then…”
Mike: bahahaha!

Saturday – Frozen meatballs & brown gravy on top of mashed potatoes & corn

SundayBeef Enchilada Zucchini Boats

MondayEasy 30 Minute Meatloaf and Three-Cheese Baked Cauliflower. There was an excellent meatloaf analysis done, that is 100% worth taking a glance at! Quite interesting as you concoct your own meatloaf recipe!

Tuesday – Frozen Sizzler Steaks with onions, mushrooms & swiss cheese on an onion bun

WednesdayHomemade Pizza (A quick & easy meal using ‘Just Add Water’ pizza mixes which should always be on-hand in your pantry)

ThursdayBLT Wraps with ranch & cheese

Friday – Since we are camping, Hot Dogs & Baked Beans with grilled corn on the cob

Shout-outs!
Thanks to http://loveoffamilyandhome.net for the idea behind the healthier mexican twist, which used up 1 of our giant zucchini’s from our simple garden!
I also had some fantastic finds this week from www.azestybite.com and p10eats.blogspot.com for their ideas on individual meatloaf’s and for making cauliflower an actual item in our house!
My step-mom Jenifer always made the best homemade thin-crust pizza when we were teenagers, adding all kinds of vegetables & toppings. She made her own crusts, but whenever I make this meal it always makes me think of her!
And of course, for those of you who have never of sizzler steaks before reading this, you can thank my dad -this was one of his go-to meals on busy nights! Try em’ any way you like! We spice it up quite a bit!

What was the recipe highlight from your menu last week?
