School has started for a couple of weeks now here in Houston. We are all getting back into the swing of things and with after school activities & homework starting up, the day seems rather short for the entire family. While I usually have more time to prepare more elaborate meals for my family towards the weekend, I was determined to still make tasty meals that do not require too much time in the kitchen on weeknights. If you noticed, before the summer, I had frequently shared quick and easy meals that are wonderful for weeknight dinners.
Some of the quick and easy weeknight meals that I had previously shared include:
These are just a handful of the many recipes that would be great for weeknight meals. I invite you to explore my website and hope these recipes will help with your meal planning and start off your school year or Fall season on a good note.
Ginger Soy Minced Beef is a recipe that is not only great for weeknight meals, it is also perfect for weekly meal planning as well. They can been made in advanced, packed into lunch boxes with rice and kept refrigerated for your lunches for the next few days. Just throw in a side of your favorite vegetable or salad.
It was a Monday night for us and Bella had martial arts classes that evening (yes, my little princess takes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes). Kian, who usually takes her to the classes had a work dinner engagement that night so I had to take Bella to class, with Jamie tagging along. Class would end at 6.30pm and it would take us 10 minutes to get home after that. I did not want the kids to have dinner too late so this is what I did. I set the rice cooker on timer, cooked the Ginger Soy Minced Beef & kept it covered in my pot (heat off, of course) before leaving. When we got home, I prepared a side of sautéed spinach with garlic, salt and pepper and warmed up the Ginger Soy Minced Beef. Within minutes, I was ready to feed two very hungry children a healthy serve of Ginger Soy Minced Beef over piping hot rice and a side of sautéed spinach. I assure you, it was really that quick and easy to make. And it was definitely delicious because, both Bella and Jamie finished their bowls happily!
