As I write this, I’m snuggled in a warm blanket, sipping coffee in my basement. The temperatures are finally rising in Wisconsin and like so many the rising temps are raising my spirits.  The new season of Spring is also bring some busyness into our home- my hubby has recently started leading a bible study at work, I’ve been taking business leadership classes and completing my weight management specialty, and the kiddos have spring activities beginning. 

This week is an especially busy one, we have activities going on 4 out of the 5 weekday nights.  I’m exhausted just thinking about it!  Weeks like this I’m careful to plan meals that are quick to cook and require little prep so I’m not stressed trying to cram more into those busy days.  Since I’m not the only crazy busy mom out there trying to feed her family balanced meals while staying sane I wanted to share our dinners this week!

Honey Garlic Shrimp from Skinny Taste

This is one of my favorite alternatives to Chinese take-out. We serve with roasted garlic broccoli and white rice.

Angel Hair Pasta with Zuchinni and Tomatoes

Another favorite from Skinny Taste, served with rotisserie chicken for protein power and zoodles mixed in with the pasta for bonus produce.

Instant Pot Chicken Ranch Tacos from Eating on a Dime

This is an InstaPot recipe, but I prefer my slow cooker (cook low 8ish hours).  Another tip: I use frozen chicken and skip the water.  We serve with regular taco fixings and sauteed peppers/onion.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork From Creme de la Crumb

We LOVE these BBQ pulled pork sandwiches served with a veggie tray and potato chips.  On nights we have more time I swap potato chips for air fryer sweet potato fries (the frozen bagged kind)

Pin for later!
