April! How did that happen? With Easter arriving early this season, and spring break late, the kids seem to be home from school a lot these days. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) There are plenty of kid-pleasing recipes on this week’s menu – fajitas, creamy chicken with noodles, sloppy Joes and meatballs – but all are upgraded in their own way to appeal to grown-up palates too.


free meal plan portabello mushroom fajitasThe first green things are just beginning to poke out of the ground, but markets are still lacking in the fresh veggie department… I’m a fan of meaty portobellos year-round, though – they make a great meatless main course, especially when roasted and transformed into fajitas!

free meal plan Chicken StroganoffDoesn’t a nice stroganoff served with curly egg noodles seem perfectly suitable for a Tuesday night dinner? After all, creamy stroganoff shouldn’t be limited to just beef. Add a quick salad of mixed greens and you’re good to go.

free meal plan sloppy joesSloppy Joes are always a hit with kids – but this version has been upgraded, making it a little more gourmet for grown-up tastes. The meat mixture freezes well – it’s easy to double the batch and have dinner taken care of on another night!

free meal plan sweet sour turkey meatballsI have yet to meet a kid who isn’t a fan of meatballs. Aimee’s dish brings meatballs and sweet and sour chicken together into one uber-pleasing dish kids love. Add peppers, pea pods, carrots, broccoli – whatever your family likes!

This long Easter weekend features a big family brunch, as usual. Quiche is always a crowd pleaser; especially veggie-based ones – they’re colourful and easy to serve in small slices, as necessary. If I double the recipe (and maybe even toss some crumbled sausage, chopped ham or some such into one) I have have one pie for dinner (with soup and/or salad), and a second to stash in the fridge to bring along on Saturday or Sunday morning.
