Five Meals for Your Family Table....Week 37

Um....where the heck did this weekend go?? The weekend was absolutely beautiful and we packed it all in. I'll share all our weekend fun later this week, but for are five meal ideas for your family table this week!
It is still feeling like Summer here, so this Coconut Crusted Cod with Pineapple Mango Salsa is perfect for Meatless Monday. And this is one of my kids' favorite ways to eat fish! It tastes kind of tropical and oh so yummy! My kids aren't big fans of red onion, so instead of using the salsa I just give them some fresh pineapple with it. Add some brown rice and something green and dinner is served! You can grab the recipe for the cod here.
Baked BBQ Chicken Tacos are loaded with flavor and will be a new Taco Tuesday Favorite for sure! Even better is the chicken cooks all day in the crockpot, perfect for this busy first month of back to school! Place 1lb of boneless chicken in the crockpot, along with 2 cups of chicken stock. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove the chicken, shred it and toss with 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce. I fill the shells with fresh spinach, red onion, the chicken and some pepper jack cheese. Bake at 400 for about 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Even though it is feeling Summer-like, our grocery stores are filled with lots of yummy squash varieties. This Better for you Chicken Parm with Spaghetti Squash is a family favorite.  Grab the recipe here.
 This pork with roasted apples and squash is another great way to get squash into your meal. Cut 1lb of peeled butternut squash, and 3 apples (I used Jona)  into bites sized pieces.  Toss with a few drizzles of EVOO and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Roast on a foil lined baking sheet at 400 for about 20-25 minutes. Toss them halfway through cooking. If you want to sweeten this dish, you can drizzle them with a little honey or pure maple syrup when you take them out of the oven. This side dish will be in your fall rotation for sure!
These Pizza Burgers from Mix & Match Mama have been a Summer favorite. In my world Pizza or Burgers are the perfect answer to a Friday night dinner. Put the two together and I am sold! You can grab the recipe here.
Have the best week friends! 
See you tomorrow....there's always room for one more at our family table.
