What are your go to weeknight dinner recipes?

Yes! We love the “create your own” approach too.

I will also just put stuff on their plates. They don’t have to eat it but sometimes they do just because it’s there! Not often though.

We used to have a “try it” policy in our house, but the tears were not worth it.

Quesadillas are a pretty standard go-to for us. I’d never thought to use a recipe for them before because, what’s to follow? Meat, or just cheese, tortilla, done, right? Well since we are all sick of the same old I decided to see if we could change it up. I found this recipe and we are hooked!

Looks like a delish recipe. I have some leftover rotisserie chix that might work for this…thanks for the link!

Omg that sounds so good!!

For the Christmas gift, I got a Kushi grill. By now I can say that lime and sesame grilled eggplant is my favorite dish. In a small bowl, I whisk 3 tablespoons of lime juice, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 1teaspoon of reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper; brush 2 tablespoons juice mixture over both sides of eggplant slices. Grill, covered, over medium heat until tender, 4-6 minutes on each side.
Put eggplant on a plate. Stir honey and pepper into juice mixture; drizzle over eggplant. Sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds.

Just made an old favourite last night that I had completely forgotten about. My recipe is for two people but it can easily be doubled or tripled if your oven is large enough.

  • 2 pieces of frozen salmon (defrosted) or fresh
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 2 portions of penne (I used wholewheat, 75 grams per person)
  • 250 ml of any type of cream
  • 250 ml boiled water
  • 1 stock cube
  • 25 gr butter
  • 25 gr flour
  • 1 clove garlic
  • oven dish

Boil penne for 6 minutes and broccoli for 3, drain and set aside.
Saute onion and garlic.
Add butter, when melted slowly add the flour to make a roux.
Slowly add the water to the roux, you now have a basic white sauce.
Add the cream to the sauce and add the crumbled stock cube.
Season to taste.
Put the penne and broccoli in an oven dish, pour over the sauce, put the salmon on top.
Bake 20 minutes in a 200 C / 400 F oven.
For variety you can put extra cheese on top, I don’t usually do that since there’s already cream in it.

I don’t eat eggplant often but this sounds yummy.

I absolutely love quesadillas! Such an easy and quick meal. A friend told me about fresh tortillas that you cook and they are absolutely amazing. They’re super quick to cook and you’d be surprised at how amazing they taste: https://www.tortillaland.com/where-to-buy/

Mmmm…I have done this with store-bought corn tortillas before, but never flour. :thinking:
