in the kitchen- a weekly plan

Day 1- Quinoa and Roasted Pepper Chili
I actually made this on Monday, but this would be ideal for Sunday dinner.  [I prefer to keep prep for weekday meals under 45 minutes and this recipe took about an hour.]  I could not find the tomatoes with chipotle chiles, so I just used fire roasted diced tomatoes.  You could add one diced chipotle pepper if you want the heat.

Day 2-  baked potato topped with left over chili
Serve leftover chili on baked potatoes.  Dress it up with chopped green onion, sliced avocado, sour cream and hot sauce.

Day 3- Teriyaki Chicken and roasted brussel sprouts
My own recipe.   Serve over your favorite rice. 
Chicken: Thinly slice a white onion and lay in bottom of 13X9 baking pan. Cut thin sliced chicken breasts into bite sized pieces [about 2lbs].  Lay on top of onions.  Cover onions and chicken with your favorite teriyaki sauce. [Don't have a favorite?  Try one of mine.]  Bake in oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.

Brussel Sprouts:  Cut brussel sprouts in half.  Drizzle with olive oil and a little salt and pepper.  Roast in oven at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes - until some of the edges start to brown.

Day 4- Crockpot Carne Asada Tacos
Anything in the slow cooker makes dinner a breeze on a busy day!  These were yummy, with TONS of leftovers. 

Day 5- Carne Asada Salad
LEFTOVERS!  There was so much steak leftover we got a second meal out of it.  My husband stuck with the tacos, but I used the steak on a salad.  I just added lettuce, tomatoes, red pepper, chopped green chiles, avocado, and salsa. 

Hope you can find at least one meal for next week.
