Healthy Weeknight Meal Plan (#12)

If you are cooking ham this weekend for Easter, then this meal plan is for you! Don’t you love it when you can make the most of leftovers?  I also have a great recipe for your holiday ham that uses a simple maple, orange, garlic glaze.  It was the first time I cooked a ham and if it’s your first time, you’ll find the tutorial helpful.

Leftover Ham and Bean Soup  |  Jo Cooks

You can cook this delicious soup when you get home or throw it all into the crockpot before work and cook on low all day.   Jo cooked a ham for the first time this as well with amazing results.  It snowed here last night so looks like soup is on the menu for a few weeks yet!

Crab Stuffed Whitefish  |  Bam’s Kitchen

“Succulent whitefish stuffed with creamy and dreamy crab filling and topped with a lemon butter drizzle…in just 30 little minutes.”  – that’s how Bobbi describes this easy and delicious dish that’s ready ind30 minutes!  You can use real crab or imitation for this recipe and your family is going to be asking you if there is a special occasion when you set his on the table.  You can just smile and pretend you spent hours on this dish!

Pasta with Peas and Ham  |  Community Table

You have to love a dish that comes in at $0.88 per serving.  Use up the last of the ham in a tasty bowtie recipe that is bound to become a family favorite.  Best of all – 15 minutes to make!

Nectarine Salad with Seared Chicken & Carrot Ginger Dressing  |  The Woks of Life

I’m obsessed with this beautiful recipe and make it often.  Pick up a rotisserie chicken on your way home  and this healthy, filling dinner comes together quickly.   Let the kids help assemble this colorful dish – a great opportunity to chat about nutritious ingredients.

One-Pot Healthy Beef + Quinoa Chili  |  Nourish Every Day

This healthy comfort food is perfect for a Friday when everyone is kicking back from a busy week.  Monique adds some steamed greens and cauliflower puree to make this meal special.  Love the addition of smoked paprika!

    Another great round-up! Makes me wish I was going to have some left-over ham! (Not cooking this year). Might just have to buy some!

    Happy Spring to you too! I always love coming to your website as it is so bright and happy and full of colourful vegetables. I really wish I could get a whole ham or even just part of a ham here but no such luck and I am really bumming as I so want to try your delicious recipe as I just love how you artfully carve the top of your ham. Well i guess I will just have to go to your house… LOL Thanks so much for including us in your round up of healthy meals. Wishing you a very safe and happy weekend.
