How has your week been? I hope you’re staying sane, happy, and healthy! One thing that keeps me grounded during strange times is maintaining a regular schedule for my family. Part of that is putting home cooked meals on the table whenever possible. Dinner together really brings about all the warm feelings and memories! Meals definitely don’t need to be complicated! I’m all about simple preparation and ingredients when it comes to our family dinners.
Here’s what we ate for dinner last week:
Pretzel Dogs. I made the recipe as directed, except I rolled the dough into a snake and then wrapped it around the hot dogs. Then I put the dough-wrapped hot dogs in the soda bath and then baked as directed.
Shrimp Boil. I hope to be sharing this recipe in the near future here on the blog! It’s so yummy! We enjoy this often over the warmer months. It’s basically cajun-seasoned boiled water in a huge pot where you add in ingredients like shrimp, sausage rounds, corn on the cob, potato pieces and mushrooms, etc, at different times (based on how long they take to cook) and then drain the water, throw it all together on a large pan and enjoy!
Baked Pork Loin with a Rice Side. I purchased a pre-marinated pork loin and served it with a choice of baked potato or cheesy broccoli rice from the pouch mix.
Pizza Rolls. I always let my kids choose what they want for dinner on their birthday. Last week was my oldest daughter’s birthday and she chose these pizza rolls, even though we had, had them just the week before. I think it’s safe to say my kids are obsessed with these! I always use thawed Rhodes Rolls, instead of making my own dough, to make things easier.
Waffles. Breakfast for dinner is so easy and delicious! These waffles are always a hit!
Have a wonderful week and happy cooking!
