Weeknight Dinners

In our post today we’re sharing some ideas for making dinner this week. Thinking up an idea for dinner every night can be a little taxing, and if you don’t plan ahead effectively, you’ll be more tempted to hit the drive-thru than the grocery store for those missing ingredients. But your Liv Ahwatukee home is the perfect place to make a delicious dinner. Below, we've taken all the guesswork out of dinner this week. Find links to the recipes as well for more detailed instructions.


Monday: Start with something comforting like this homemade baked macaroni and cheese from The site says that this “creamy, cheesy baked macaroni and cheese is a true crowd pleaser! This southern-inspired comfort food packs a home-style flavor that both kids and adults will love.”


Tuesday: This Taco Bake comes from Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen. As a bonus, this dish is also gluten-free. Customize this with your favorite ingredients and celebrate Taco Tuesday casserole style!


Wednesday: Chicken Pillows are an easy dish that takes very little time and skill to prepare. There are lots of variations on this recipe, but we found this delicious looking one that looks about as comforting as your real pillow! They pair really well with a fresh vegetable or a salad.


Thursday: Try breakfast for dinner! This recipe for blueberry pancakes comes from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen and promises to be the very best, so try it for yourself. The site says, “Making these pancakes is actually really simple. Just combine the bowl of wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and pour on the griddle. Super simple and incredibly delicious!”


Friday: Tonight, try a delicious homemade chicken noodle soup. This easy 30-minute recipe comes from Averie Cooks. Pair this with a fresh bread or roll recipe, whatever you prefer! The site says, “I don’t have time to watch a boiling pot for half the day and this version is easy, ready in 30-minutes, and has all the comforting qualities you want in classic chicken noodle soup. To save time, use store bought rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken that you have on hand. Of [course,] you can roast or pan sauté chicken if you’re so inclined.”
