Easy chicken curry for kids

As winter drags on, it’s time to try out some new recipes. This week’s meal plan has a 5 new recipes after catching up on my magazine reading. Cooking Light is one of the few that I still prefer to receive in print so I can easily access the recipes.

The system I use for organizing recipes is to rip out the ones I’m interested in and add it to a folder that stays at the front of my recipe binder. Once I have cooked the meal and decide if it’s worth making again, then it gets filed into the correct section of the binder for storage. Most of the recipes from magazines end up in plastic sleeves so there are no worries about kitchen spills.

On the menu…

Family dinner meal plans for busy weeknights

Sunday: Grilled Rib Eye with shaved carrot and parsley salad. {recipe}

Monday: Pasta tuna salad. I make a pasta switch as the kids don’t care for campanelle. This is a great pantry-friendly recipe that comes together really fast. {recipe}

Tuesday: Seared Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Polenta. Kids who don’t care for blue cheese will get parmesan cheese swirled into their polenta. Sautéed broccoli on the side. {recipe}

Wednesday: Spaghetti and meatballs in slow cooker. Recipe from the Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook.

Thursday: CORN: Clean Out Refrigerator Night

Friday: Mushroom Asparagus and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza. {recipe} Getting creative with meatless meals during Lent. It will be even better with homemade pizza dough.

Saturday: Chicken curry bar. I’ll toss the kid’s chicken into a tortilla with their choice of toppings. Grown ups will have it over rice. {recipe} Are my kids the only ones who won’t eat rice?

Sunday: Mustard Glaze Chicken plus a big batch of roasted vegetables. {recipe} I’m loving the soup idea to make with the leftover veggies!

Which dinner night would be the favorite in your house?

    I made the flank steak recipe last week and it was a hit! Love your weekly meal plan as it always inspires me! Thanks!

      Thanks Kate! I’m a sucker for anything with blue cheese so it made it on the list this week.

    Your meal plan sound great. In fact, I’m experiencing a bit of envy. I love the sound of curry chicken. My kids LOVE rice but their dad doesn’t like plain rice so we have a role reversal at our house!

    Emily I must try the Seared Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Polenta! I get into this pasta rut and I think the boys would like polenta.

    Nom nom nom. I love Blue Cheese but haven’t tried it in polenta. My kids love polenta (with butter only), but I’d love to punch it up for my husband and myself. Great suggestions!

    Blue cheese polenta sounds like an absolutely delicious side! I’m hopping over to the recipe right now because I think it might grace our Easter dinner table since we’re grilling lamb! Thanks!
