Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Take #MeatlessMonday to the next level with a creamy vegan Red Pepper Pasta at Minimalist Baker that everyone will love. And, hey, you can always make it with dairy if you like.

Take #MeatlessMonday a step further and try this vegan Roasted Red Pepper Pasta at Minimalist Baker. It’s super creamy and, well, if you don’t care about keeping it vegan, just use regular milk and grated Parmesan cheese instead of nutritional yeast. Plus, there are red peppers in the sauce. (You can tell the kids or not: We won’t judge!)

 

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Nudge the kids to something more adventurous using a familiar dish with these Lamb Meatballs in Mint-Orange Tomato Sauce at Brooklyn Supper

These Lamb Meatballs in Mint-Orange Tomato Sauce at Brooklyn Supper look unbelievably delicious and are a great way to nudge kids towards something more adventurous. If you don’t think they’ll accept lamb, you can always use beef. Also, this dinner, which is perfect with rice and a simple salad, takes about 45 minutes, a little longer than the usual quick weeknight meal. If that’s untenable on a Tuesday, prep the meatballs on Sunday for a quicker weeknight endeavor.

 

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: These Spinach & Artichoke Quesadillas at Domestic Superhero are an easy weeknight dish that might get the kids to eat spinach too - yay!

If you take a little longer to make dinner one night, keep it particularly short on the next. These Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas at Domestic Superhero come together quickly and they are a great way to get kids to eat spinach and artichokes. Or, you know, whatever other veg you decide to pack in these.

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Celebrate any day of the week with these easy Beef Fajitas at Recipe Tin Eats

Pizza or grilling are my go-to Friday moves, and this week it’s all about the grill and these Beef Fajitas at Recipe Tin Eats. You can also cook the meat in a pan or a broiler and, no matter how you cook the steak, I’d say that the marinade is key if you have the time. If not, those charred onions and peppers in combination with avocado or guacamole will take plenty good care of you.
