I recently had the opportunity to review a Rec Tec Grills and the first meal we cooked on it included this Delicious Barbecue Ribs Recipe. My daughter (10 years old) was involved in the whole process from start to finish. She even took responsibility for helping create and record the marinade recipe. She was very excited as this was the first time she played such a major role in a recipe. She even learned to step out of the box and try new spices she wouldn’t normally use. Not only was her marinade amazing the Rec Tec Grill made this Kids BBQ Recipes a hit for everyone at the BBQ there was barely a bite left when the meal was over.
When it comes to choosing meals, I always make sure that it’s healthy but still tasty so that everyone in my family will enjoy it. That’s why I often choose Weight Watchers recipes for our menu. Most of the time weight loss meals are bland tasting, but Weight Watchers recipes are flavorful and fall within a point range that will not ruin your diet. My family loved all the Weight Watchers dinner recipes that we tried so this time I rounded my favorite Weight Watchers lunch menu recipes to make it easier for all of us to plan our Weight Watchers meals. I chose a lot of easy to make lunch meals so I hope you’ll like them.
I love pesto, but unfortunately, some of my family members are allergic to nuts and most store-bought pesto, or homemade pesto recipes have nuts in them, so I decided to make my own. Pesto is very easy to grow, and we have a lot in our garden especially during spring and summer. This fresh basil pesto without nuts recipe is so easy to make. The taste is great and perfect for any recipes.
Fresh salmon is in season and not only is it healthy but it’s also very versatile. There are a lot of different ways to cook it, but my favorite is oven baked salmon in foil with pesto. In less than 30 minutes we have a great meal that is not only easy to make and tasty, but it looks great too. It’s perfect for busy weeknights, or if you want something that will look elegant for when you have guests, then this recipe is for you.
Easy Weeknight Dinners
Weeknights for most families are busy! Working a full-time job and having a husband who works night shifts makes planning the meals we have together important. Anything that will make my life a little easier is definitely worth sharing, so I thought I would share this with you.
Easy Weeknight Dinner Ideas
These ideas are great for the family-on-the-go or the mom that is worn out and doesn’t want to play short order cook. We’ve all done it. We’ve pulled into that drive-thru lane because we were too tired to cook. Though we know fast food isn’t healthy, the ease of not having to plan (and cook) dinner is tempting. We frown as our kids insist on French fries instead of grilled veggies or whatever we could have whipped at home. Sometimes it is just easier to grit our teeth and hand over the debit card.
But weeknight dinners do not have to be such a nutritional wasteland. With a little planning, restraint, and determination, you can cruise through weeknight dinners easily. Your wallet will thank you!

I was just about to serve dinner. The salmon was baked to perfection. The aroma resembled a fancy restaurant. It was going to be the date night we deserve. The table was set not too formal but not informal enough that he would confuse this with an average meal which should not be hard since most of our meals of late consisted of eating at the soccer field on the run.
I was just about to dump the $6 bag of fancy salad; you know the ones with the beautiful greens in the bowl when I noticed something disturbing,
I found that bag as I was envisioning our meal at the supermarket two days ago. I checked the date just like you look at the milk. I threw it in my cart as my child dangled precariously from the cart after his third warning that this was in fact not a skateboard and we had a job to do, and it wasn’t to produce a movie with stunts. You have had those trips where you aren’t sure how everyone made it out of the store in one piece and how you were able to breathe deeply so you could handle the chaos.
If the shopping trip wasn’t disturbing enough now, I am at the table ready to knock my husband off his feet my husband, and I see a corner of slime on the lettuce that resembles a pile of seaweed that was just washed ashore after a fierce storm. It is clumped together and smells like the diaper bin when you didn’t change it for the day.
I begin to pick through to find any leaves that may have survived so I can assemble a salad to compliment my baked salmon. I need enough greens to layer on the award winning in my home mango dressing with hints of citrus. It is a labor of love that will remind my husband of the times we used to eat at our favorite tapas restaurant before balancing the social calendar of three children.
I found a few but settled on calling my husband to pick up greens. I was heartbroken and out $6 well maybe $5.50 with my limited record option. It was at that point that I vowed to never leave my vegetables in the bag they came in.
I needed to find the best way to keep vegetables fresh, so I did.
