Weeknight Dinner Plan: June One Pot Dinners week will free up evenings with these healthy, delicious dinners. On the heels of a long weekend, we’re getting back to healthy, quick meals.
June One-Pot Dinners
This week begins the unofficial start to summer. And we will celebrate large and deliciously on Monday.
If you’re still planning your Memorial Day menu, we have some amazing and delicious ideas for everyone at your table. From vegan and vegetarian options to healthier takes on Memorial Day favorites. (See Monday’s link below for recipes).
And then comes the rest of the week.
For Tuesday, assuming we’ve indulged on Monday, we’re cutting back with a simple pasta that’s filled with vegetables. If you have leftovers, this is a good night to plan for those.
Wednesday features a Mediterranean-style skillet dinner with chicken thighs. I’m very much looking forward to this easy meal.
Chowder always seems like summer to me. For Thursday’s seafood option, we’re planning an easy, one pot fish chowder. While there is a recipe… it’s not really a recipe. Adapt the ingredients to your favorites!
Finally, Friday is a healthy, skillet fried rice that’s I’m already thinking about.
The treat is a picnic favorite that takes all of minutes to make. Get the family to help you with this one!
After an indulging weekend, I'm planning a simple pasta for Tuesday night filled with vegetables and herbs. Plus, I'll also be serving weekend leftovers with this meal. "'Cacio e pepe' means 'cheese and pepper' in Italian. This spaghetti dish, with fresh asparagus and baby arugula, is flavored with 'cacio e pepe' and a little lemon zest. It's simple to prepare and on the table in just 25 minutes."
"Bright-green Castelvetrano olives hail from Sicily and have a buttery flavor and meaty texture that pair perfectly with the Italian seasoning and salty capers in this one-skillet chicken dinner. Look for them on your supermarket olive bar or in jars with Italian ingredients."
