WEEKNIGHT DINNERS

weeknight dinner ideas | designlovefest

happy monday! do you meal prep? i’ve always thought it would be a nice habit to get into but for some reason it just doesn’t click with me. the last thing i want to do on sunday evening is chop vegetables for two hours. so, that usually means monday is meal prep day. my husband does the grocery shopping but i’m generally responsible for the list which requires me to have at least a vague idea of what i’d like to make. i thought i’d round up some of the recipes we’ve made on here that are great weeknight dinners, simple and safe well for leftovers. – joanie

above: pizza with pre-made dough – pizza is very forgiving, top with whatever you have on hand, 15 minutes in the oven and dinner is served!

veggie fried rice – everything but the kitchen sink with this rice, it can hold all of the vegetables that are about to go bad.

hot and sour soup – love this one with lots of fresh lime juice added at the end!

    I’m not super great at meal planning (Sundays are for RELAXING, not slaving away in the kitchen, haha), but I’m trying to get better at cooking at home. I’ve found that making large recipes help – that way I have leftovers for lunches and for dinners and am not cooking every single night.

    agree! leftovers save me. and i don’t mind eating the same thing on repeat.

    Delicious! I can’t even decide which I’d go for first out of all these amazing choices!

    I definitely need to try making some tacos. There is almost nothing better than eating a hot flour tortilla and some fresh guac. YUM!
