Sunday: Sausage Gravy with Biscuits & Eggs
Sometimes, you just need comfort food. J I don’t often make gravy, but this one turned out pretty tasty. I used turkey sausage, and it was just right. I also whipped up some biscuits using Bisquick.
Monday: Grilled Duck with Rice & Broccoli
Chad offered to grill, and I always take him up on that offer! He marinated some duck (from one of his hunts) in soy sauce with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. I roasted broccoli inside and also made some brown rice.
Tuesday: Hawaiian Chicken with Whole Wheat Pasta, Pesto, & Tomatoes & Roasted Green Beans
I had some Hawaiian Chicken already cooked and diced in the freezer from making a big batch a few weeks ago. I thawed some of it and then warmed it on the stove. While the chicken was warming, I boiled some whole wheat spiral pasta. Then I tossed the pasta with a little pesto sauce and diced tomatoes. This was a super simple, healthy meal that came together in no time.
Wednesday: Dinner with Small Group
Thursday: Ground Chicken & Venison & Veggie Tacos with Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas
Ground Chicken & Venison & Veggie Tacos
This is a wonderful meal that can use any ground meat and any veggies you have on hand. Just cook your meat and then add your small, diced veggies (I used zucchini and carrots that I diced up really small in my mini food processor). If I have tomatoes on hand (which I did), I add those at the end as well. I season mine with salt, pepper, and taco seasoning. This meat is so wonderful on tacos, quesadillas, nachos, salads, or even with pasta sauce. So, I decided to use both ground chicken and ground venison and make a double batch so that we would have some leftover for meals during the week and also some to toss in the freezer to add to a meal later on.
I haven’t made these in a while, but we enjoy them! They aren’t going to be exactly like a regular tortilla since they are made with whole wheat. But, they are a little thicker and chewier, which we kind of like for a change.
Friday: Quesadillas for Us, Pizza for the Kids
Hooray for family movie night! I bought some little frozen pizzas for the kids, and then Chad and I had quesadillas with the meat and veggies I made the night before.
Saturday: Ranger’s Birthday Cookout!
We had a few friends and family over for a cookout to celebrate Ranger’s upcoming 7th birthday!
