We featured these Spinach Gnocchi at Weelicious in our round up of easy freezer toddler meals, but  let’s be honest: They look delicious for us grown ups too. Plus, one family, one dinner. Make a double batch of this #MeatlessMonday meal — it doesn’t take any significant extra time — and freeze a bunch for another dinner soon.

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Mango Bacon Salsa Hot Dogs at She Knows

I have a thing about not serving hot dogs for dinner. I love them, but they just seem like something you should eat only when out. My kids accept this about me until summer time, when they suddenly start requesting hot dogs for dinner after camp. I oblige, because it does seem right after a long day of outdoor play, but like to dress my dogs up. I love all of these creative hot dog recipes, but am eyeing the Mango Bacon Salsa-Covered Hot Dogs at SheKnows for this week.
