Easy April Dinners

Weekly Dinner Meal Plan: Apr 1 – 5, 2019

April showers bring May flowers — or so they say. Here in my neck of the woods, the spring tree blooms are abundant and gorgeous. And I’m in spring heaven.

With the asparagus, artichokes and bright spring veggies showing up in my market… spring heaven is even sweeter.

This week’s dinner meal plan features those flavors we love all year long, but especially during this gorgeous season. A vegetarian choice for Monday, a slow cooker option for Tuesday, a classic comfort food, healthy of course, for Wednesday, followed by a sheet pan dinner and seafood on Friday.

The treat is incredibly yummy, and perfect for those of you glued to March Madness basketball games. As are we! It seems like it’s game night at our house… every night. Good thing we have more than one tv.

Welcoming April with easy, healthy, seasonal spring yumminess. 

It’s what’s for dinner this week.

Monday: Spaghetti With Charred Scallion Sauce

Meal Plan // Week 14: Easy April Dinners | 31Daily.com

3 INGREDIENTS: “An extremely untraditional riff on the Italian aglio e olio. Instead of garlic, we’re using scallions. And we’re using a lot of them—three bunches to be exact. If you’re tempted to reduce the amount, well, don’t. Once you start treating scallions like a leafy green—from charring in a skillet to roasting on a sheet pan—it’s hard to stop.”

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

Meal Plan // Week 14: Easy April Dinners | 31Daily.com

“Save the white styrofoam container for a more desperate time—today we’re making easy Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken. Its sweet, sticky sauce has all the allure of your favorite takeout but is made of healthy, natural ingredients. The recipe is only eight ingredients (nine if you are a stickler and count the rice), and if you cook Asian food regularly (meaning you own soy sauce), you have all of them in your pantry right now.”

Wednesday: Turkey Meatloaf

Meal Plan // Week 14: Easy April Dinners | 31Daily.com

“Nothing says comfort food quite like meatloaf. And while we all love the traditional meatloaf made with beef, this is a nice and healthy alternative with traditional flavors, just a little lighter in the fat and calorie bank and one of my very favorites.”

Thursday: Sheet Pan Chicken Teriyaki with Vegetables

Meal Plan // Week 14: Easy April Dinners | 31Daily.com

“This recipe requires just one pan and six ingredients, yet provides 2–3 servings of vegetables and more than 39 grams of protein. If you’re watching your carbs, replace the brown rice with cauliflower rice or extra vegetables.”

Friday: Chinese-Style Steamed Whole Fish with Ginger and Scallions

Meal Plan // Week 14: Easy April Dinners | 31Daily.com

“Whole fish, even for many fish lovers, can be a hard sell. The head, the tail, the fins — I suppose it’s just a little too much? If this perhaps describes you, I’m hoping I can convince you to give whole-fish cooking a go, because I think you’ll fall in love with the method, this Chinese-style preparation in particular.”

Gooey and Delicious Magic Slam Dunk S’mores Cookie Bars

Meal Plan // Week 14: Easy April Dinners | 31Daily.com

“These Magic Slam Dunk S’mores Bar Cookies are gooey and incredibly delicious. Packed with chocolate, butterscotch, marshmallows all bound together with sweet cream and baked in a graham cracker crust. Oh my, yes, they are magic! And perfect for all things basketball.”
