This summer I am dedicated to expanding my collection of easy dishes to cook for the family. I love a burger bowl, rice bowl, or easy salad, but my family doesn’t share the same affection for a meal in a bowl as I do. They much prefer a meat & three type of dinner or anything in a casserole dish or crockpot. In an effort to accommodate their picky palates, I have amassed a fairly solid roundup of weeknight meals that are simple to prepare. Speaking of, if you haven’t read my Go-To Weeknight Meals post then stop right now and click right here! I listed out all of our favorite recipes and the *very* simple instructions for each. Here are a few of the meals that are included.
When it comes to broadening my recipe horizons, I will be the first to admit that I am often intimidated to try a new recipe. The other day Zach sent me a meme that said something like “She sends me home improvement projects that I will never do and I send her recipes that she will never cook. It’s a fun little game we play.” Zach does indeed send me a LOT of recipes, but little does he know that I have my own little collection of recipes saved on my Instagram account. The ones he sends me are usually some type of triple stuffed, half-baked, donut within a cookie within a funnel cake dessert, but mine are a little more suited for actual family meals.
Here are a few of the recipes I have saved and will attempt to cook through this summer. I’ve linked to each person’s Instagram account or website so be sure to click through and discover some new foodie accounts to follow! If you have an easy weeknight meal, leave it in the comments for us to check out!!
