Weeknight meals can be a PAIN. After a long day of work, sometimes the last thing you want to do is stand in front a stove. If you don’t have any idea of what to make or what you have in your pantry, making dinner can be a chore. The past few weeks have left me really uninspired with food and what to do eat. This week I’m putting that behind me and jotting down five weeknight recipes that I want to try and/or know that are delicious and make GREAT leftovers.


White Pizza with Spinach + Lemon
{What’s Gaby Cooking}
Gaby has a weekly Snapchat series where she walks you through a recipe and colors your green with food envy. I promise you, you’ll want to eat EVER-Y-THING. This white pizza was the latest and I have NOT been able to stop thinking about it. 100% making it this week, because what’s better than olive oil, garlic and CHEESE? The spinach is a bonus.

We’ve been on a serious fajita kick lately and this seasoning (linked above) makes them the BEST. Plus, its SUPER easy to make. Pick your protein, grab some precut onions + peppers (Jewel is my savior) and season. Quickest meal you’ll make all week. If you want to get extra fancy, whip up some homemade quac.

Skinny Chicken Avocado Salad Sandwich
{Creme De La Crumb}
YUMMMMM! This has been a crowd favorite and is filled with creamy deliciousness. It uses a combo of Greek yogurt + mayo which cuts some of the not great stuff. Its great on Italian bread, open faced sandwiches, crackers or even just solo. MAKE THIS.

Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta
{Damn Delicious}
Pasta is always a good idea in my book. Pasta is even better with garlic, butter and SHRIMP. This dish is takes about 20 minutes to make and is perfect for those chilly evenings.

Meatball Subs
I secretly love a good meatball sub. After finding this recipe, I think its a MUST MAKE! Plus, meatballs make for great leftovers. This sounds like it would be a great Friday night meal or make over the weekend for the week. You can use it to make subs, pasta or just straight.

Happy eating and chat soon,
