What's for Dinner

Photo Credit: LCBO

I've kind of lost my cooking mojo the last couple of weeks. For one, I was sick for a week. Tyler cooked dinner for most of that week. When I had an appetite I was treated to pierogis with a side of hot dogs. I am not even exaggerating for comedic effect.

The other thing is, the daily grind of getting home from working and getting dinner on the table is wearing me down. I had planned a bunch slow cooker recipes for last week, but even then, most take some prep either the night before or the morning of. So instead of using ground beef for slow-cooker meatloaf on Friday, I made pasta with ground beef mixed with a can of tomato soup and a can of cheddar cheese soup. Not my healthiest creation to be sure. And wouldn't you know it, Tyler and Parker ate two servings each. They literally shoveled it in. God help me.

I've rounded up some recipes for quick, easy, healthy recipes this week. Here's hoping all will go according to plan!

Chicken Shawarma from T-Fal ActiFry in pitas with cucumber, tomato, hummus

Kale Salad with Apples, Bacon, Chicken, Pecans, Feta adapted from Lauren's Latest

Pretzel-Crusted Pork Schnitzel from Bon Appetit with Roasted Root Vegetables. I am making the brine for the pork right now so it's ready to go the night before I make this.
