Leave a comment


Monday: Chicken Tikka Masala – carryover from last week

Tuesday: Butternut Squash Tostadas (easiest meal ever!)

Wednesday: Taco Nacho Rice

Thursday: Sundried Tomato Artichoke Chicken and Sauteed Yellow Squash

Friday – we’re traveling, so no planned meals



  • Organize the RR cabinet
  • Dice chicken for the Tikka Masala and Sundried Tomato Artichoke dish
  • Dice three onions for the Taco Nacho Rice, the butternut squash tostadas, and the sauteed yellow squash.
  • Marinate the chicken for the Tikka Masala

Monday: After work: Cook the chicken and some frozen stir-fry type vegetables in the tikka masala sauce.  Cook some 90 second Uncle Ben’s rice.  Heat the naan bread over the toaster.

Tuesday: After work: Throw a bag of frozen cubed butternut squash in a skillet with some oil, a diced onion, and a can of Ro-tel.  Heat through.  Put the mixture on a tostada and top with cilantro and goat cheese.


After work: Make the Taco Nacho Rice, adding in some small frozen mixed veggies.

Late night: Slice the yellow squash into coins using the mandolin and mix with one of the diced onions and some minced garlic.

Thursday: Saute the yellow squash/onion mixture with some oil, pepper, rosemary, and thyme.  Prep the chicken according to the recipe, except I don’t bread the chicken.  It takes extra time and it’s just as good without it.

I'm a mom that works outside the house trying to create home cooked meals for my little family of three. My husband is a small business owner, and my daughter turned 2 in February.
