Meal Plan #2

We have a lot of evening activities with the kids this week, so we’re having a lot of quick and easy dinners–things that are either light enough to eat before the activity, or quick enough to be ready to feed hungry teenagers.  I’m still experimenting with the Instant Pot and not yet ready to try being creative with it.  This week I’m using a recipe from for a Chicken Tikka.  I have included a link for a Bearnaise sauce recipe, which is basically a Hollandaise with tarragon added.  I don’t remember where the recipe I use came from, and to be honest, I will use a powdered sauce mix in a pinch to save time, but this is a classic recipe and the linked recipe adheres closely to the classic.  If you come across a Bearnaise that has cream in it, run the other way!  This is NOT Bearnaise!

And, yes, Naan Pizza makes yet another appearance.  The kids love it and always ask for it.  Its good fuel for before activities, and its super fast to make.  I just keep naan, tomato sauce, and cheese on hand.  Put it together and pop it under the broiler for a couple of minutes, and PRESTO–dinner is ready!  The will never go hungry if I keep all the ingredients on hand.
