What to Cook (Feb 3 – 7): Double Duty Dinners
Doubling our cooking efforts this week with healthy and easy Double Duty Dinners. From rotisserie to curry, meatloaf to soup — It’s what’s for dinner this week!
Super Bowl Sunday will be a cooking marathon, and a feast for all things rich, delicious, and even decadent. From cheesy dips to spicy eats. A foodie dream to be sure.
But come Monday, when it’s time to cook weeknight dinners, I often feel that “What’s for dinner?” panic. The creative juices have been given to Sunday.
So this week, we’re “treating” ourselves to easy yet healthy double-duty dinners. On every night, except for Monday.
The week begins with a cozy and delicious slow cooker Moroccan Lentil and Chickpea Soup that almost makes itself.
Tuesday’s dinner, an incredibly delicious and so easy Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken becomes Wednesday’s Easy Chicken Curry.
On Thursday, we’ll make a turkey meatloaf that will become Friday’s healthy meatloaf sandwiches.
The treat? Honestly, I couldn’t come up with a double-duty treat. Maybe you can think of one?
Wanting to keep cooking easy, all week long, and classic and winterish, Peanut Butter Cookies seemed like the “right” treat.
I’m baking a double batch, sending a college care package with half, and freezIng the other half. Well… we’ll be keeping a few out too. You know, tea time is always better with a treat.
What I love About Double Duty Dinners
- Reduces the weekly grocery bill.
- A budget-friendly way to use and repurpose leftovers.
- Cooking longer on one night results in easy, minutes-to-make dinners later.
- It keeps my refrigerator clean and organized.
Double Duty Dinners… it’s what we’re cooking this week!
Have a great week everyone!
