what we ate: mar 1-14, 2015

by Heather

I have two weeks of dinner inspiration for you this morning!  Which is exactly what I need to take a look at too.  I’m a total slacker with meal planning this week and pretty much am just planning to figure it out the day of.  I totally blame it on the rain this weekend.  All the awesome sunshine and warm days we had made me so inspired and productive and it just makes my brain spin a little quicker.  Then the rain comes (which is 100% the norm here in Washington) and I just want to sit on the couch and hang with my family.  Which is sometimes what rainy days just call you to do.

So here are TWO weeks worth of dinner inspiration for you (and me). As always, when there is a recipe to link to, you’ll see it.  The asterisk next to a day is to help me remember when Jacob loved a meal or wanted me to write it down.

March 1-7

Sunday – baked salmon + roasted carrots/sweet potatoes/red potatoes + roasted broccoli + crusty dutch oven bread


Monday – spaghetti with beefy tomato sauce + corn + salad (dinner at my folks)

Tuesday – tuna melts + kale salad

Wednesday * – steak + compound butter + pasta caesar salad


Thursday * – crockpot hawaiian beef + steam broccoli + jasmine rice

Friday – beef empanadas + chimichurri sauce


Saturday – spaghetti with beefy sauce + salad + bread (dinner at some friend’s house)

March 8-14

Sunday – bratwurst + leftover jasmine rice + tomato/cucumber/avocado/cheddar salad


Monday * – leftover hawaiian beef + jasmine rice/barley + steamed broccoli + cheddar sauce


Tuesday – creamy chicken enchiladas + guacamole + sauted black beans and corn + snap peas

Wednesday – almond crusted halibut + roasted broccoli + mashed red potatoes + cucumber slices

Thursday – BFD blueberry pancakes


Friday * – sausage + 4 different cheeses + crusty dutch oven bread (date night in! – the kids had quessadillas + avocado + pickles)


Saturday * – taco salad (taco beef + lettuce + tomato + cheddar + black beans + guac + jalapeno ranch) + leftover crusty bread


My favorite two kitchen helpers being distracted with cucumber slices and each other.  They add so much extra fun to my life. 🙂


What do you love to do on rainy days?  Either inside or outside.

On rainy days I like to relax, read a book, and cook soup. Usually that doesn’t happen, because, well, kids. 🙂 I love seeing all your dinners! Thanks for sharing.
