Homemade Meals without the Stress

It’s hard enough juggling work and social obligations without having to worry about getting dinner on the table. If you’re set on making fresh meals (why wouldn’t you be?) during the week, at least make it easy on yourself. These simple recipes make a good start.

Monday: Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

The Edgy Veg

To make this vegan pasta dish extra creamy, you’re going to need a few specialty ingredients, but keeping them in stock means you can add this dish to your weekly rotation.

Tuesday: Stuffed Peppers

Wednesday: Pad Thai

Quick and Easy Pad Thai Noodles

K33 Kitchen

Some more exotic fare is needed to get over the midweek hump. While the ingredient list is a little long for this one, most of it goes into making an incredible sauce. With cilantro, limes, and spring onions mixed in, this is a fresh and flavorful addition to any weekday dinner plan.

Thursday: Curried Chicken

Granny's Chicken Curry Delight

The Devilish Kitchen

This family recipe is a hit with kids and so simple you’ll always want to have it handy. Chicken tenders are mixed with curry flour, curry powder, and seasoning, then cooked and drizzled with a sweet curry sauce. Top a bowl of your favorite whole grains with it and serve alongside a simple salad.

Friday: Pork Tenderloin

Tangerine Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

Just Jan's

It’s Friday and time to bring out the tenderloin. This juicy piece of meat is treated with fresh rosemary and topped with a tangerine marmalade. While it’s great on its own, it’s perfect with a side of potatoes and some vegetables. Quick, healthy, and hearty!
