Weekly Dinner Menu 38 includes Salmon Crescent Rolls, Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken, Lemon Chicken Pasta, and Happy Burgers!

I’m not sure where this week went, but it flew by for me! I want to get your easy weekly dinner menu to you without delay on this fine Saturday morning, so here are your seven easy dinner recipes minus the chit chat. Have a great weekend, and please come back to let me know how you like any of these easy dinner ideas that you try.

  1. Lemon Chicken Pasta – This is one of the first recipes I shared here, and the whole family loves it. I finally got around to making it again and taking new photos. Enjoy!Easy Lemon Chicken Pasta - #easy, #healthy #pasta dinner! by @wearychef
  2. Speedy Bean and Cheese Enchiladas – Did you know you can make bean and cheese enchiladas in 15 minutes with only a couple ingredients? Recruit the kids to help with this one!Quick Bean and Cheese Enchiladas - Ready in 15 minutes! | The Weary Chef
  3. Happy Burgers – This isn’t a recipe as much as assembly instructions. On your next burger night, mix it up for the kids with this cute little guy! Melt cheese on a burger patty, and make a face out of olive slices, carrot, and tomato. I had leftover rice that I used for a beard (that really looks more like a lei, but whatever) and salad for the hair. The boys were so excited about this one!Happy Burgers: Put a smile on your kid's face for your next burger night! - wearychef.comHappy Burgers: Put a smile on your kid's face for your next burger night! - wearychef.com
  4. Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken – I couldn’t get enough lemon and chicken this week apparently. You will love this easy recipe for roasted chicken! Serve it with rice pilaf and steamed green beans (I get the steam-in-the-bag kind and toss them with butter, salt, and pepper.)Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary | The Weary Chef #slowcooker #chicken
  5. Salmon Crescent Rolls with Spinach and Feta – I initially thought this would be an all-in-one dinner since most of the food groups are covered, but I decided there wasn’t enough spinach to count as a full vegetable. I served these up with a simple side salad. Don’t have salmon? Try it with chicken instead!Salmon Crescent Rollups with Spinach and Feta | The Weary Chef
  6. Cheese Tortellini with Sausage in a Creamy Broth – This hearty pasta dish is quick to put together and mighty good!Cheese Tortellini with Sausage and Spinach in a Creamy Broth | The Weary Chef

Am most intrigued by your wild rice salad. Folks always put it in a soup, but why not a salad? Yum. And I’ve never even heard of putting a whole chicken in the slow cooker. But again, why not?

Happy burgers: how awesome of a mom are YOU?

All looks good. One more to go for Fiesta week, then should start getting my soup on as the temps are starting to drop. Hope things go well on your end.

Hi, Liz! I want to get going on some new soup recipes too. We had a repeat of happy burgers a couple nights later because the kids loved them so much and were asking for them. I’m convinced that a happy face makes any food taste better ;) Have a good week!

happy face with kale etc?

Well, let’s not go crazy. I don’t think even a happy face would trick my kids into eating kale!
