WHW: Recipe Files

Hey y'all and welcome to another what's hap-pinning Wednesday. I haven't shared any good eats in quite some time and with the new year underway, we've tried some great new dishes! I have successfully picked back up on the meal planning and we still receive two meals per week from Home Chef. My meal planning consists of a grocery list that lists all ingredients needed to make 6 meals for my family. I've planned out 4 separate weeks so that we aren't repeating meals too often. So that method paired with the Home Chef ensures that we are covered meal wise. Woot woot! (so far so good but I still refuse to give up Mexican food) 

Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of super simple weeknight recipes that we've done and we've loved! Also, all of these are toddler approved which is a huge score in our household! 

1. Pear & Blue Cheese Flatbreads with almonds
you will need: olive oil, salt & pepper, white onion, arugula, chopped almonds, 1 pear, flatbreads, shredded mozz cheese, a little goat cheese

  • preheat oven to 400
  • caramelize the onion in a skillet with olive oil
  • quarter pear and core. cut into thin slices
  • toast flatbreads for 5 min in preheated oven
  • assemble flatbreads with mozz cheese on each leaving a slight crust border
  • layer pears on top and drizzle with olive oil
  • place directly on oven rack for 10-12 min
  • garnish with onions, almonds, arugula, goat cheese etc. 

2. Caprese Calzones & Sweet Vidalia Roasted bone-in Chicken w/ Roasted Pears & Brussels
