With work, social obligations — and perhaps children, dogs, and aging parents to care for — it’s not easy to cook every night. Ordering takeout is easy but it’s not cheap. Here’s something I hope will help you out:
Weeknight Meal Planning Guide
1.) Monday: Steak Pizzaiola (in a slow cooker)
Seriously, this is the best slow cooker recipe out there, developed by a professional chef who always cooks authentic Italian. He calls this “meat candy.” Take 10-minutes to prepare the ingredients before throwing them in the pot and then wait a couple of hours and you’ll see why.
2.) Tuesday: Quick, Easy Turkish Eggplant Casserole
This looks, smells, and tastes delicious. It’s like eggplant parm without all the work and without all of the fat. A pinch of cinnamon adds depth and takes this to another world.
3.) Wednesday: Mexicali Chicken
Just four simple steps for gooey pseudo-Mexican comfort food.
4.) Thursday: Marco’s Fuscilli
How hard and long does it take to boil water? That’s how hard and long it takes to make this. Nothing could be simpler or tastier.
5.) Friday: Breakfast for Dinner, Gingerbread Pancakes
Yes, you could just scramble up a couple of eggs, but this is much better. It’s the bold flavor or gingerbread in one of the lightest pancakes you’ll ever eat.
Bonus: 10-Minute Crostini
There’s nothing quicker and easier than this appetizer (of course you could make this a meal if you ate enough of them). Three ingredients: guacamole, salsa, and a good baguette. You know what to do.
