I filled you guys in on our menu last week. Now I’m going to share a couple of dinners from the menu that are easy, comforting and done in about an hour.


The first one is a super easy and equally delicious meal! I found it on Pinterest, shocking I know? The only substitute is the swapping of some butter for olive oil. Link is below.  Chicken breasts, potatoes and green beans. Dried italian dressing mix. Olive oil. Butter. That is all!  🙂

Here’s what you’ll need:

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast

5-6 medium red potatoes, diced

14 oz. bag frozen green beans

4 tbsp. extra virgin olive or grapeseed oil

4 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed

1 package Good Seasons dried Italian dressing mix

1.Preheat oven to 350.

2.Trim fat off chicken and dice potatoes. Place chicken and potatoes in dish and drizzle with 3 tbsp. olive oil and 3 tbsp. butter. Sprinkle 2/3 dressing mix over chicken and potatoes. I didn’t want my green beans to be too soggy so I cooked them separately. Put beans in dish and top with remaining oil and butter and dressing mix.

3.Bake chicken and potatoes for one hour or until juices run clear and potatoes are fork tender.

4.Put the green beans in the last 20 minutes or so.

Next up is my take on The Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Noodle Bake.  Pasta and cheese and tomato sauce, oh my.  A delicious casserole.  Perfect dinner.  Great leftover too.  I did adjust a few ingredients, but will attach the original below.

Here’s what you’ll need:

l lb. ground turkey, browned and drained

2–8 oz. cans tomato sauce

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

3/4 cup small curd cottage cheese

1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/3 cup chopped green onion

1 cup shredded colby jack cheese

8 oz. whole wheat egg noodles, cooked

salt and pepper

1.Preheat oven to 350.

2.Mix yogurt, cottage cheese, green onions, spinach and parsley with cooked egg noodles.

3.After meat is drained, stir in tomato sauce until well combined, season with salt and pepper per taste.

4.Spray pan and layer half of noodle mixture on bottom.  Next meat and tomato sauce.  Top with half of shredded cheese.  Repeat once more and bake for 30 minutes.

It is that easy!  Stay tuned!  🙂
