dinner inspiration


Happy Tuesday, friends! I thought I'd share some more easy dinner inspiration for this week. In case you've not paid attention to this, I always lean a lot on the Mexican side of dinners at home. Everyone seems to love it and it's easy and healthy. Or, healthier than pasta or a casserole.

Last night Todd and I had leftovers for dinner. I love doing that on Monday nights when it's just the two of us here to eat. If someone decides to stay home, there are plenty of options for them to make something very quickly. 

Tonight is taco Tuesday! I haven't decided which way to go with this yet, but there are options here as well. We could actual tacos, or baked tacos or nachos.

For the baked tacos, all you do is stand them up and add the meat and cheese and bake them for a few minutes. One time when I went to do that, all the taco shells started breaking, so Todd had the idea to do a Mexican lasagna instead. It was so good. (I'm so hungry as I'm writing this on Monday afternoon. Ha!) I have all the toppings for tacos—guacamole, butter lettuce, cheese, salsa and sriracha. Seriously, my mouth is watering, y'all. I need a snack to tide me over until dinner! 

I'm not sure what we'll do for Wednesday night yet, but we'll either get sushi or maybe have some leftovers. The other night I'm cooking this week, I'll be making this quiche again.

This is easy and delicious. I just whisk together eggs with a splash of milk (I think I use four eggs per quiche) and add in whatever I have on hand. I've done bacon and veggies, or all veggie and I love both versions. For the rest of the week, I'll be eating all of these leftovers and I'll probably do the same for lunches. 

What's for dinner tonight at your house? I'd love to hear from you! Thanks for reading, friends. Love to all. 


  1. Actually we're having Mexican tonight. Our plans are to stop a Mickey's Salsa Food Truck. His food is so good. I don't have much time because we have Bible Study tonight and I'm at the church today to work on lessons (of course, and blog some too). So that's our plan tonight Last night and Sunday night too, we had hot dogs with whatever sides we found in the fridge and cabinets. Love those easy meals. I've never tried the baked tacos. Sounds good. Hope you enjoy your day!

  2. Your meals all look good! I enjoy quiche but I don't make it often. I am making soup for dinner- pasta e fagioli which will make enough for leftovers. It is cool out again so I am taking advantage of that and making soup ;).

  3. I could - & usually do - eat Mexican every single night!

  4. Cathy, all of that sounds good too! I love easy things. If it's healthy, that's a huge bonus. I hope you've had a good day!

  5. Thanks, Maria! That soup is delicious, I've had it Olive Garden before...I think? Or maybe it was a friend who made it while we were there. You know I love soup!

  6. Rebecca Jo- yes girl! I could eat it just about everyday myself!
