Whether you need a quick and easy meal for back-to-school or simple game-day recipes to kick off college football season, Midweek Menu 189 is the answer. With two make-ahead recipes, a ‘hands-free’ Crock Pot recipe, and a 15-minute Air Fryer recipe, you’ll have a delicious dinner on the table in no time!
Midweek Menu 189 is my go-to meal for this time of year; it perfectly combines fresh flavors and comfort food with easy-to-make game-day classics! The star of this show is the Crock Pot Sloppy Joes, which require only 10 minutes of hands-on preparation. It’s a delicious, budget-friendly main dish that’s nostalgic, hearty, and great to enjoy while watching the game!
When you’re serving a classic recipe like Sloppy Joes, you need classic side dishes, so I make it with pasta salad and corn on the cob! Creamy Tomato Cucumber Pasta Salad is a make-ahead recipe that’s absolutely irresistible. Serve it with buttery Air Fryer Corn on the Cob, and you’ve got a match made in heaven!
Snickerdoodle Cookies are a family favorite recipe, perfect for this time of year! Soft and chewy, with a sugary cinnamon topping, these Snickerdoodle Cookies only take 20 minutes to prepare and are great to serve as a light dessert. Plus, you can pack the leftovers up for school lunches or bring them in as back-to-school gifts for teachers!
