This week we are getting into our school-year routine. I have now realized how busy our Thursdays will be, so I decided to pre-make that meal, (shepherds pie). As I was doing that I thought why don’t I just brown the hamburger for taco’s and sloppy joes (lunch one day) at the same time. While my roast for dinner was in the crockpot, I was boiling potatoes for mashed potatoes for Sunday dinner as well as some to go on top of the shepherds pie, I browned 5lbs of hamburger and then began preparing the shepherds pie, divided and seasoned out the rest. I already feel on top of this weeks dinners.
Monday- Chicken Alfredo
Tuesday- Taco Pockets (like tacos but made with rolls instead of shells)
Wednesday- French Toast and Bacon
Thursday- Shepherds Pie- Premade- I just use ground beef, a can of veggies and a can of soup. Layer it and top it with mashed potatoes. Bake at 350 for 45 min.
Friday- Either Homemade Pizza or go out to eat.
What tips do you have to make dinner prep easier? Any simple go-to recipes?
