What’s for Dinner Wednesday!

Welcome to What’s for dinner Wednesday! One of my favorite Recipes for Busy Parents is not only easy but also delicious. My family loves this as a mid-week meal. 

When Little Man is in school and Daddy is working I love making things that not only warm up their bellies after a cold day, but also take as little time to prepare as possible.

Meal Planning can be a pain and I find by Wednesday I never want what I had actually planned to have earlier in the week. I used to write out meal plans but almost ALWAYS ditched Wednesday’s plan and went with something random. I find I got bored too easily with sticking to a regiment. I know, I know, it’s counterproductive. Sometimes I need a little spontaneity in my life! The best I can do, usually, is through saying: “Forget it” to a meal plan. Living life on the edge don’t you know? 

So, this week I am making Ninja’s Kitchen Sink Casserole…. It’s called this because I literally just threw a bunch of left overs into a skillet and went nuts one day…and my family LOVED it. 

Little Man loves this recipe because it is easy to eat and delicious.

Husband loves it because it’s warm, with just the right amount of heartiness to make him full.

Baby Girl loves this mostly because she likes to make a gigantic mess. What else can I say?

Oh, yeah. I love this because it’s easy as pie to make. Seriously.

So, Without further ado, I present to you…

Ninja's Kitchen Sink Casserole

    it is difficult at times to plan ahead for dinner meals and end up preparing the same meals every week. I find I can always prepare a fast meal with pasta. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    MMMM! That sounds really good. It sounds like something that would go over really well in my house.

    That sounds really easy and yummy! I might as well give it a try! Also, I would love to try meal planning, but because I have picky eaters, duh, I always ditch what’s in my head and go with whatever’s in my fridge.

    This recipe sounds very easy and yummy indeed. I do like to plan weekly meals but my picky eaters are just way too picky… 🙂 so I always end up ditching my plan and just go with whatever’s in my fridge.
