I decided to start doing weekly theme posts. The first series will be “What’s for dinner Wednesday?”
I don’t know about your family but it seems as if by Wednesday, Mum hits a midweek rut. She’s trying to stay away from fast food but it is hard when both Mum and Dad work, kids come home from school and it is just a mad house.
So she usually plans her weekly meals and by Wednesday it seems as if a struggle for something quick and easy ensues. Plus Isabelle has ballet practice at such a weird odd hour, that it makes it even harder not to cave to the convenience of something readily available at a drive thru window.
These meals will be fast, easy, and kid friendly!
The first one is something so quick and easy, there is no excuse not to enjoy this meal.
One of Mums favorite places to shop is Sam’s Club. When she is there she always grabs a fully cooked whole rotisserie chicken.
This past week they also had a special on corn on the cob and russet potatoes.
Now usually making corn on the cob is a hassle for Mum, dragging out the HUGE pot, boiling the water, it takes so LONG! However, she’s recently discovered a super easy, fool proof way to cook corn on the cob that takes literally minutes.
She has a Pampered Chef deef covered Roaster, found here. There is so much you can do with that pan it is simply amazing! One thing is steam corn.
All you do it put about 1/2 a cup of water in the roaster and add the corn, microwave for 15 minutes and bam. DONE!
Along with this corn I also chopped up some potatoes and sprinkled them with corse black pepper and some sea salt. Wrap them in foil and pop in the oven for about 45 mins. oh so good!
Along with the two carbs, I also cut up some cucumbers and used this wonderful spicy Mexican powder and some lime juice!
Cut up that whole cooked rotisserie chicken and there you have it! A Wednesday dinner, fast, simple and delicious!
