This Midweek Menu is all about getting back into the groove of things after the holidays. Whether you’re looking for healthier, fresh-tasting recipes in the New Year, or you’re interested in convenient meal planning to save time, this menu has a little of both!
Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken has only 5 ingredients and can be prepared in minutes, then slow-cooked throughout the day. This recipe makes enough for leftovers, too.
Tomato Cucumber Salad is a refreshing dish that packs a flavorful punch and is super easy to make ahead of time. Roasted Broccoli is a vegetable side that even the pickiest eater will enjoy, plus it’s made and ready to serve in 25 minutes.
My personal favorite recipe on this menu is the Lemon Poppy Seed Cake. Skip the coffee shop breakfast loaf and upgrade to this easy, homemade bakery classic. This recipe is so versatile, it can be served as an after-dinner sweet treat, and then you can enjoy the leftovers for breakfast or a lunchtime snack.
