5 Toddler Approved Dinner Ideas

Good Morning Friends. I have been reading a lot about the importance of sharing family meal time together and have really been focusing on sitting down for dinner every night of the week. This is something that I think is really important for our family and for Fés development! I have been testing out a lot of new recipes trying to find things that are healthy, easy, inexpensive, and most importantly, Fé approved. Here are my (and Fés) top five dinner ideas!

1. Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

These are so yummy and so easy. Just stick everything in the crockpot and by dinner time everything is ready. Serve with tortillas, sour cream, salsa, and salad and you have a delicious and healthy weeknight dinner.

2. Grilled Salmon, Asparagus, Potatoes

Dinner Ideas

I am so happy about the fact that Fé loves grilled Salmon. I pop some salmon on the grill and in about 10 minutes it comes out perfectly! I normally serve with some grilled asparagus and roasted potatoes.

3. Chicken Mulligatawny Soup

Dinner Ideas

Have you ever had Mulligatawny soup? Let me tell you, it is to die for and a family favorite around here. This soup is the love child of traditional Indian Cuisine and Colonial British favorites. They come together to make this perfectly creamy magical little soup. You can even make this in the Instant Pot!

4. Turkey, Brussels Sprouts, and Rice Casserole

Dinner Ideas

This dish is super easy to whip up (takes about 30 min) and is a healthy staple over here. It is super simple yet oh so tasty! I like to make an extra big batch and save it for lunches for the week.

5. Greek Chicken Skewers

Dinner Ideas

I love Greek food and these easy Greek skewers satisfy my craving for some Mediterranian grub! I marinate the chicken for the whole day and when I am ready to grill, I just pop the chicken on to a skewer, along with some cherry tomatoes and red onions and voila! I serve this with pita bread, tzatziki sauce, hummus, and a big greek salad for a fun and festive weeknight dinner that takes us right back to the shores of the med!

What are some of your family favorite dinner recipes? I would love to hear them and get some more inspiration!

Friday Favorites #5

Hello Hello Everybody!

I have some really great news today. We have received Daniels US Visa in the mail and we are officially moving back to California! I am so excited and so grateful to everyone who has supported us through the process over the past 18 months! So while you all are counting down the days till Christmas we will be spending Christmas Day in the sky as we make our way back to San Diego!

Anyway, with that being said let’s get on to our weekly Friday Favorites!

Friday Favorites #5

  • Stranger Things

Stranger Things

I am not sure why it took me and Daniel this long to watch Stranger Things. We have heard over and over again how great of a show it was but we just never found it very appealing. This week we finally decided to give it a try on Netflix and let me tell you, it is a binge-watcher! If you are looking for a binge-worthy show make sure you check out Stranger Things!

Wine Loving Mom Gifts

This Sweater from Tipsy Elves is a hilarious sweater for any Christmas party. I was going to order it but since we will be spending Christmas Day on a plane, we had to change some of our plans so I decided not to order it in the end. Anyway, the sweater doubles as a wine bottle holder! Be sure to check out the Holiday Gifts for Wine Loving Mamas for more great wine-related gifts =)

  • Mulled/Spiced Wine

So before Daniel and I got pregnant we drank ALOT of mulled wine! So much that last Christmas the thought of mulled wine made me sick. But this year I decided to try it out again and I remembered why Daniel and I drank so much of it two years ago! Mulled wine makes the perfect holiday drink for nights when you want to feel warm and cozy!

Mulled wine (or Gluhwein) is really popular over here but I don’t think it is as popular in the states (correct me if I am wrong!) so you could try making your own with this mulled wine spice kit that has great reviews on Amazon!

Thanks for stopping by! See Y’all next week!
