Menu Week 2-21-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday – Family Dinner

Monday – Enchilada Salad with Crispy Sweet Potatoes – If this recipe turns out I’ll be sure to post it on the blog. I put some chicken in the crockpot with some enchilada sauce and put it over salad. I spiralized some sweet potatoes and got them crispy and put them on top.

TuesdaySweet & Sour Pork with Brown Rice – I get stuck in a chicken rut sometimes, so this pork stir fry will be a nice break. It looks really easy and the sauce looks delicious.

WednesdayThai Peanut Stir Fry – I love this dish. It’s packed with vegetables and the peanut sauce brings it all together.

ThursdayOrange Chicken with Green Beans – I can’t wait to try this dish. Oranges are on super sale right now, so this is a great way to use them. This looks so easy and healthy!

Friday – Greek Quesadillas – This is a nice meatless meal and only takes 15 minutes from start to finish. I like to use spinach, feta, parmesan, mozzarella, red peppers, and red onions. Yum!

Saturday – Our niece’s birthday parties

Easy Overnight Oats

Are you a breakfast person? I’ve always been a breakfast person. I used to be in love with a big bowl of cereal. Those were the days….These Easy Overnight Oats will make you a breakfast person 🙂

These oats are seriously the easiest breakfast you can make. They take about 3 minutes to put together and make a hearty breakfast or snack.

I love to make these oats in mason jars. They make it easy to transport them for an on-the-go snack or to pull out of the fridge for a last minute breakfast. The best part about making these in mason jars is that you don’t have to measure. If you have the jars with the cup measurements on the side, you can just pour and go! No need to dirty any other utensils! Be sure to give the oats a good shake before you put them in the fridge for the night to get all of the yummy ingredients mixed up evenly.

All you really need to make these are oats, milk and a little bit of sweetener. They are really customizable to your tastes and preferences. I made these oats here with 3/4 cup of chocolate almond milk (so good!) and 1/4 cup unsweetend almond milk, 3/4 cup of gluten free old fashioned oats, and 1 teaspoon of maple syrup. I love Bob’s Red Mill gluten free old fashioned oats. They are so mellow and don’t have a really strong stand alone flavor and soften up so nicely in the milk.

These oats are a great substitute if you’re a cereal lover, but are wanting something a little bit more healthy. They are so filling, since oats are naturally full of fiber, and most cereals are loaded with sugar. One whole jar only has 1 small teaspoon of maple syrup, or the sweetener of your choice. I love that they don’t contain any artificial ingredients or sweeteners.

There are so many amazing recipes out there for overnight oats. These oats might be basic and easy, but they aren’t lacking in flavor. Pile them high with your favorite add-ins: coconut, fruit, nut butter, chia seeds, hemp seeds, or whatever is in your pantry. Be sure to let me know if you give these a try!

Menu Week 2-7-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday Carnitas Enchilada Lasagna – Remember those carnitas that I made last week, here is an  easy way to use them up. This is simple to put together and you’ve already done the hard work cooking the meat ahead of time (which isn’t hard at all).

Monday – Family Dinner

Tuesday – Taco Soup – This is my favorite taco soup recipe this year. It’s a little mashup of a tomato soup base combined with all of my favorite taco toppings. I’ll be posting this recipe soon!

WednesdayPeanut Noodles with Veggies – This is a nice meatless meal, that you can add whatever vegetables you have on hand. I love anything with peanut butter and these noodles are no exception.

ThursdayOrange Chicken with Brown Rice and Broccoli – I love a good stir fry and this one is packed with flavor. It’s a nice makeover on an unhealthy takeout classic.

Menu Week 1-31-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches with Fried Pickles – This is an indulgence for sure! You can lighten this up for an easier weeknight meal. I made a quick blue cheese cole slaw to serve the chicken over instead of using buns. This chicken is so easy, only 2 ingredients, and makes great leftovers.

Monday – Family Dinner

TuesdayCarnitas Nachos – Utilizing the slow cooker on weeknights is a life saver. These carnitas are so flavorful and get nice and crispy from a quick broil in the oven. I’m going to serve these over nachos with some bell peppers, cilantro, shredded cheese, red onions and a big side of guacamole.

WednesdayLemon Orzo with Roast Broccoli – This is one of our favorite meals. It’s packed with flavor and really creamy. Definitely comfort food!

Thursday – CEF Art Event – We are going to a fun event at a local brewery with art from local artists. This should be a fun night benefiting a great cause.

Friday – Zesty Chicken Tenders, Sweet Potato Fries & Green Beans – These turned out so delicious a few weeks ago when I first made them, they are back on the menu again. They are super delicious, you won’t even miss the fried kind!

SaturdayBalsamic Brussels Sprouts Pizza –  This is one of our favorite ways to eat Brussels sprouts. Doesn’t everything taste better in pizza form? 🙂 The balsamic onions paired with the brussels is everything. I like to add chicken sausage or bacon.
