What’s For Dinner TUESDAY – Homemade Egg McMuffin Sandwiches

Copycat Egg McMuffin Recipe Like McDonald's

Who says Egg McMuffin is just for breakfast?  Breakfast for dinner is always a fun change!  You don’t need to go to McDonald’s to get these Egg McMuffin sandwiches.  You can make them at home – much quicker, easier and healthier than getting them from a fast food joint!  For a side dish, I recommend easy roasted potatoes.

What’s For Dinner WEDNESDAY – Pasta With Pesto

How To Make Pasta With Classic Basil Pesto

In this delicious meal, I’m tossing the cooked pasta with fresh homemade classic basil pesto, made with fresh basil leaves, garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts!  Pesto is super-easy to make – just process all the pesto ingredients in the food processor while the pasta is cooking, then toss it while it’s piping hot and serve immediately.  Or for the ultimate shortcut you can use a store-bought pesto too :)

What’s For Dinner THURSDAY – Grilled Calamari

Don’t be intimidated by cooking calamari!  It sounds exotic, but is super easy to make!  Cooking calamari is easier than cooking chicken :)  All you need to do is stir fry it on the frying pan, and it cooks really quickly – under 5 minutes!

These delicious Swedish meatballs are made from the mixture of ground meat (beef or turkey) with breadcrumbs and grated onions.  The meatballs are first pan-fried, then simmered for hours in a slow cooker with the gravy – what a yummy comfort food!
