Ideas For Weekday Dinner

EN   It’s not a secret that I like to cook and I like to eat. And I like to hit the gym. You know, just for the sake of balance 🙂 I would love to share here more of my dishes I make at home, but with the daylight so short I never manage to make it on time. And as you may noticed, I like my food photos done nicely, in an aesthetically appealing way. So it’s really difficult to do that when it gets dark so fast, when you work and plus sometimes you don’t want to eat a cold food after all, because taking photos takes more than five minutes. But today’s post is not about how I would like to write more food related posts. Today I wanted to share few ideas for your weekday dinner. Some days we have more time to prepare something delicious, other days we lack of time or/and inspiration. So I thought it would be nice to share the recipes I made and repeated through time in order to inspire you to take time and dinner well even during the week!
P.S. if you want to see the recipe, just click on the dish name and it will take you to the post where you will find the recipe. Hope you will enjoy this food journey!

LT   Čia ne jokia paslaptis, kad aš mėgstu gaminti, o dar labiau valgyti. Dar ką labai mėgstu, tai  po to sportuoti. Na, žinot, viskas balanso palaikymo saikui :)) Man labai norėtųsi dažniau su jumis pasidalinti mano gamintais patiekalais, tačiau ta trumpa dienos šviesa dažnai pakiša pagalius į ratus. Manau jau pastebėjot, kad estetinis maisto nuotrauku vaizdas man yra labai svarbus. Todėl tai padaryti yra tikrai sunku, kai lauke sutemsta taip greitai, dar plius kai dirbi ir dar plius kai kartais tiesiog nesinori valgyti šalto maisto, nes juk tobulų nuotraukų padarymas užima, patikėkit manimi, ne penkias minutes. Bet šiandienos įrašas yra ne apie mano norą rašyti daugiau maisto įrašų, bet apie darbo savaitės vakarienes. Kai kuriomis dienomis mes turime daugiau laiko ir galime sau leisti pasisukioti virtuvėje ir pagaminti kažką šilto ir gardaus, o kai kada stinga to laiko, ir dar žiūrėk įkvėpimas kažkur pabėgo. Todėl pamaniau, kad būtų smagu pasidalinti keliais mano išbandytais ir ne kartą gamintais receptais. Man būna, kad išsenka maisto įdėjų maišelis, tad jei ir jums taip karts nuo karto nutinka, tikiuosi, kad šis įrašas bent šiek tiek įkvėps ir bus naudingas.
P.S. norėdami perskaityti receptą, paspauskite ant patiekalo pavadinimo ir jus nukels į to įrašo puslapį. Geros maistinės kelionės!

Let’s start with a soup. You can’t survive cold winter without a proper WINTER SOUP. It’s so warming, so fulfilling and deliciously good. And easy!

If you want to have pasta for the dinner, then it would be a great idea to prepare a good batch of MARINARA SAUCE in advance, freeze it if you’re not planning to use it directly or the next day. The time you choose to make pasta, you would just need to choose the perfect shape of pasta and preheat the sauce. Couldn’t be easier, right? Like homemade fast food that has only good things in it.

In case you wanted something more interesting to eat and really enjoy the dinner together with someone or even alone in front of the Sex and the city movie (again :))), then I suggest you to go for CHICKEN FAJITAS with salsa and guacamole. De-li-cious and fun to eat.

Again another Mexican cuisine dish: caramelized onion, spinach and avocado QUESADILLAS. So good and very easy to vary the filling. If you don’t like spinach, then go for paprika, you can add chicken, let your imagination run free and hopefully your stomach will thank you for it ;))

CHICKEN & SPINACH CANNELLONI would be a great choice for a Friday’s dinner accompanied by the bottle of wine. I’ve already made three or four times this one and it’s always a winner.

BEEF STIR FRY a dish full of vegetables and soft beef. Delicious and you don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen to prepare this healthy dish.

I hope this post will give you some ideas for spicing up your weekday dinner’s game. I would love to know if you tried any of these recipes or when you do, let me know!!!! Have a nice week!!

Na štai tiek. Labai tikiuosi, kad šis įrašas įkvėps jus paįvairinti jūsų darbo savaitės vakarienių repertuarą. Būtų labai smagu sužinoti, jei kažką jau bandėte gaminti iš čia, o jei dar tik ruošiatės, tai su dideliu noru lauksiu atsiliepimų komentarų skiltyje arba galite brūkštelėti laiškelį! Geros savaitės!!
