family meal: week 34

March 21, 2013

spring rollsSpring Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce. This was for a swim night dinner and it was easy to already have prepped beforehand and when we came home, we all ate. The girls had theirs with hoisin sauce (and True’s had tofu in her rolls). We had a lot of left over veggies from the weekend and I just used those to put in our rolls, along with some greens from the garden. It was a yummy and quick dinner on a busy evening.

tacosCrunchy Tacos. We use ground turkey and we like to indulge in crunchy shells. It’s just kind of yummy that way. For the record though, Ben eats his on whole wheat tortilla.

swiss chard and white beansswiss chard and white beansQuick Swiss Chard and White Beans Stew. Ben made this with our first chard harvest from our garden. He made two batches, one not spicy and one so spicy my nose was running. Despite, how heat packed it was, it was definitely delicious. I’m so excited to have chard back in full force in our garden.

Week 3/25- 3/29
Monday: Sandwiches
Tuesday: Crunchy Pork Kimchi
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Banh mi (anyone have any good recipes?)
Friday: Tuna Poke (never got to make it this week, so saving it for next)

I didn’t exactly follow last week’s meal plan, but I forgot to give Ben the grocery list for the week, so I went with whatever was already in our fridge. Still getting the hang of it with two swim nights during the week, so it takes sometime to get used to making meals for those nights. Do you have any quick meal suggestions for those nights?

    I want more info on those rolls, they look amazing!

    yum, everything looks great! i’ll have to make spring rolls soon, we love them too! i’m still trying to find good dinners for our busy nights too. my go-to is some garlic hummus with flatbread and a big salad, it’s easy if the veggies for the salad are prepped and hummus is made!

    Oohh, I love spring rolls! I love making them at home but my favorites are from a local restaurant and they put in thin slices of mangoes which are so yummy with all the other greens and the shrimp.

    Hmm… some other ideas for some quick dinners would be fried rice (there are so many variations you can make!) and curry (on the second day we like to eat it with some chicken or don katsu(?) from the local korean market that are ready to be fried at home).

    If you find a good recipe for banh mi please share! I’ve always wanted to try the Nom Nom truck but every time I see one there’s such a huge line that I just pass it by. I really love your weekly family meals post 🙂
