4 quick and easy dinner ideas that are toddler approved

We’ve been eating some really delicious meals lately.

So delicious, in fact, that The Husband and I have both decided that they all need to become regular features on our weekly menu. And that’s saying A LOT.

Here are 4 of our favorites that we plan to make over and over again this summer.

  1. Korean Sizzling Beef. I have a seriously hard time getting my shit together to thaw and marinade meat the night before. So, even though this recipe calls for an overnight marinade, I just let it sit for 15-20 minutes before preparing. STILL DELICIOUS. I’m pretty sure The Babe ate her weight in beef with this one, as did The Husband. Plan to make extra if you like to have leftovers. Because we mayyyyybe had two small pieces left.
  2. Thai Pineapple Fried Rice. I paired this with the Korean Sizzling Beef and it was seriously the best thing we ate all week. It’s THE perfect way to use up leftover rice, and adds a really great kick of flavor to any main. Or, hell, make it your main. It’s that good.
  3. Kung Pao Meatballs. I had originally intended to make something else, but realized I had forgotten to grab the two main ingredients and had to adjust course at 5:30PM. All I have to say is, thank GOD for this recipe. (Also, it’s seriously delicious with ground beef, which is how I made it because the hubs doesn’t eat chicken.) They were so good that The Babe happily devoured these for not one but two meals in a row.
  4. Paleo Turkey and Sweet Potato Meatballs. I’m clearly on a meatball kick, which is more than a bit ironic since I hate the kind of meatballs that go with spaghetti. These were nothing like traditional meatballs. They were light, fluffy, juicy, and DELICIOUS. My only struggle? What to pair them with. I ended up having a smorgasbord of sides, including roasted cauliflower, roasted potatoes, rice, and salad but know that a great side could make these next level amazing.

What have you been cooking and loving lately? Any I should add to my “must make” list?
