I’m in the stage of back-to-school where the calendar starts to feel daunting. You with me? Putting all the games, practices, activities and events on the calendar is making me hyperventilate. To keep things mellow, I’m making extra easy meals this week. First off, sptachcocked chicken is a sheet pan meal with easy clean up. Serve with a summery spinach salad or just a basic green salad.
Vegetarian chili. It’s not exactly cold and crisp weather in Houston, but my kids are chili fans no matter what the season. Add a side of corn muffins or just dish everyone up and call it a night!
Super fast skirt steak fajitas with a one-pan clean up. Make this with chicken breast if you prefer, and serve with all your favorite fajita toppings.
A quick stir fry for the kids using leftover steak from Tuesday night. I plan to leave out the oyster sauce and use tamari or coconut aminos to keep this gluten-free. I’ll also add sugar snap peas and a diced red pepper to add color and extra veggies to the mix. If you don’t end up with extra skirt steak, substitute ground pork or chicken. My husband and I are headed to the soft opening of Rosie Cannonball tonight, I’ll give you a full report on Instagram.
I’ll be shooting new recipe photos all day, so I am 90% certain there will be tons of leftovers to feed my family. If you want something quick and easy, I’d recommend this healthy and easy chicken cacciatore. The chicken is Whole30 if served over zucchini noodles or dairy-free mashed potatoes, but you could also serve it over egg noodles if you’re so inclined (and not concerned about keeping it Whole30).
We made it to Labor Day weekend! I’ll be on HoustonLife at 1pm today sharing simple recipes to make your life easier. To celebrate, I’m 100% planning to go out to dinner with my family. If you’re home and want something easy to serve your crew, consider chicken tortilla-less soup or tortellini casserole.
