Easy But Delicious Repeats

This week is going to be quite hectic again, so I've decided to make easy dishes I have made numerous times before. I already have many of the ingredients in my pantry, and I can cook them without looking at the recipes. Also, I can substitute ingredients easily since I am familiar with the recipes and know what works and what doesn't. So here are this week's meals:

Tuesday: Portobello Mushroom Burgers


Wednesday: Pasta Salad with Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Oven Roasted Vegetables

Thursday: Lentil Soup with Spicy Yogurt Sauce


Friday: I hope to finally experiment with some warm cabbage salad. But I have been meaning to do this for weeks, so don't hold your breath...

Question: What are some of your "no think" meals?

Be well,
Andrea

  1. I'm definitely going to try those portabello burgers next week!! (I recently discovered how much I LOVE mushrooms of all types!)

    My quick no think meals are Shepherd's Pie (A version I once found in Weight Watcher's Magazine, so it's pretty healthy!) and an old family recipe for chili. I throw it in the crockpot in the morning, and yum! Ready to go for dinner. (And everyone LOVES it!)

  3. oh those all sound great and healthy! A common "no think" meal is stir-fry...or basically a big mix of whatever grain we have with veggies and other toppings!

  4. I'm definitely a stir fry girl. Easy, quick, and simple. I'm trying to go raw though so I'm going to have to find another quick meal!

  5. I do a quick chickpea and vegetable curry that I can make with my eyes closed. Tofu stirfries, stuffed red peppers and breakfast burritos all come together quick and easy at our house.

  19. I don't make too many meals for the family during the school year, just breakfast and lunches for myself. My go-to things are salads, omelets, oatmeal, eggs, roasted veggies, and pb&j's. Yours are a lot more creative :)

  23. Loving the burger and esp that soup, because today is a windy, chilly day! I just wish I had good bread to go with it.
    These days, my no-think meals are cottage cheese, refried beans,+ sweet potato fries.

  24. my "starving salads" are no think meals. i just toss and eat.

  25. Yum, everything looks great!

    My favorite no think meals are just cereal with fruit, and salads - just throw whatever veggies or fruits in there that you have on hand, plus maybe some chicken, cheese, or nuts for protein.

  26. I think hectic days must be contagious - I've had my fair share of them lately.

    BEANS are my fast meal! Beans + tomatoes + spices = quick, healthy and tasty. A winning equation.

    I haven't had a portabella burger in a while! Must do something about that. Another fast and easy meal, thanks for the idea!
