Happy Monday and Happy President’s Day, y’all!  Thank goodness for federal holidays and three day weekends!  How was your weekend?  Did you have a fantastic and romance-filled Valentine’s Day? We did!  We originally planned to go to our favorite one man show hole in the wall Ethiopian restaurant, but when it got so dang cold and we realized we had to go to Costco for dog food, we just decided to grab some scallops and a filet and stay home in front of the fireplace.

Nothing says romance like yoga pants and a ratty old university sweatshirt.  It’s cold and I had to leave my house, otherwise it would have been flannel jammies.  Don’t judge me.

Moving on.  Let’s talk about easy weeknight meals.  This is one that we originally made because we had a vegetarian guest for dinner and not only did it turn out to be amazingly delicious, but it’s super simple!  It takes about 40 minutes or so to make, but it doesn’t require a lot of attention, so you can get dinner started and do other things like change out of your work clothes and into some comfy flannel jammies or yoga pants, let the dogs out, get the kids stated on their homework or fix yourself a dang martini.  No judgments here and you deserve it!  I would totally start with the martini .

Anyhoo, the point is that this is an easy option for a weeknight hassle-free dinner.  You can get your water going for your noodles while the mushroom sauce is doing it’s thing, toss together a salad, and Wham-BAM-Thank You, M’am!  Dinner is served.

Keeping in the spirit of easy weeknight meals, do you plan out your meals for the week or just wing it? We do a bit of both here, but when we had little people in the house that wanted to know what’s for dinner the minute you walk in the door, it sure was a lot less stressful when we had planned out our meals for the week and had everything on hand and ready to go.

I want to tell you about my friend Raquel (not to be confused with Rachelle since that is me).  Raquel is a blogger from My California Roots and she wrote an ebook Guide to Meal Planning.  She gave me a copy to review (and I’m totally going to put it to good use) and I’m super excited about it.

The guide includes:

  • Templates for meal planning
  • Recipe Keeper Spreadsheet (which is awesome and helpful!)
  • Meal Planning Toolkit
  • A mini book on tips for creating the best meal plans ever
  • Extra goodies!

The guide is just released today and is only available for 5 days.  I honestly love this Guide to Meal Planning and would totally recommend it even if it wasn’t published by my friend!  I am 100% confident that it will be a life-saver for anyone with a family to feed and for people who want to keep to a healthy diet – which is always easier when you have your meal plans in place so that you’re not hitting the drive-through on your way home from work because you didn’t plan.

I highly recommend you go check out Raquel’s Guide to Meal Planning.  To do that, click here: Guide to Meal Planning

  1. Now this is comfort food! We usually serve ours on rice, but I love that you have served it on pasta – everything is better with pasta, right?!

    We went out for a walk yesterday and it was freezing, but it meant that I could justify the extra slice of cake.

  2. Hahaha, you KNOW I ain’t judging you about the jammies! It takes a lot of self motivation to get me out of mine!! 😉 LOVE this stroganoff, Rachelle! It looks comforting, creamy and totally dreamy! Plus I love that it is a pretty stress free meal! Winning! Totally need to check out Raquel’s book… because lord knows I suck at meal planning! Only thing I’m good about planning is a vacation. Or how to stay in my pj’s all day long. 😉 Cheers, sweets! XO

    • Girl, I appreciate the jammie twinning! Who would ever want to get out of jammies? I never plan to stay in my pj’s all day long, it just kind of happens. Unless I have to go to Costco, then I upgrade to yoga pants and running shoes! 🙂

  3. I may or may not have stayed in my jammies by the fireplace all day yesterday. Yes, the entire day. I’m loving this Mushroom Stroganoff! It looks so creamy and comforting…perfect for a winter day when you don’t want/have to leave the house. And I bet the leftovers are even better! 🙂

  4. I’m with Chey, these days I’m much better at planning vacations or staying in my comfiest duds for as long as possible. When the kids were home, a lot more meal planning was happening – but since starting the the blog, i focus more on posts than planned meals – I need to get much better at that! Truthfully, the first time no-churn ice cream was our dinner, it was fun and spontaneous, by the 4th time…not so much! I need this dish in my life! I love stroganoff and this veggie version sounds and looks delicious! Stay warm, my friend!

    • LOL! By the fourth time you served ice cream for dinner, I’ll bet Dom was hankering for a steak! 🙂 Thanks, Annie! You stay warm too!

  5. Isn’t sometimes staying home, eating simple food and relaxing in front of fireplace the best part?! We stayed in for valentines day and just cooked a simple meal! I am loving this mushroom Strangoff girl!! I love mushrooms so totally giving this a try soon 🙂

  6. Totally love being in my jammies – I’m a huge flannel PJ fan, so there’s certainly no judgement here! This mushroom stroganoff sounds WONDERFUL. I’m a huge stroganoff fan and I love mushrooms, so yeah. I want this right now – it would be perfect to warm me up in this cold weather!

  7. This looks AMAZING, Rachelle! Please come through the ice in your PJs and make this for me! I love stroganoff and I have never seen such perfect pics of it. Making me sad about my scrambled eggs for dinner plans!

    • Brrrr! I might have to change out the flannels for my onesie for that adventure! 🙂 And scrambled eggs are delicious!

  8. We stayed in too since it was freezing and went out for lunch today instead. Yay for jammies and delicious comfort food! This looks SO amazing!!

  9. I do much better when I’ve planned out the menu for the week, but let’s be real…it just doesn’t happen every week! Life seems to just happen and we get busy. Crazy thing is, we still eat, even without pre-planning every meal. Go figure…. I need to add this stroganoff to our menu. I love things that don’t take a whole lot of effort. Just get it going and come back to a beautiful dinner. This looks fantastic!

    • Things definitely run smoother when there is a plan, but it doesn’t always happen here either! Sometimes life just gets in the way! Having a stockpile of easy go-to recipes always saves the day! 🙂

  10. Yummy to the max on this mushroom stroganoff!! Love that you did a vegetarian version too. Pasta in a creamy sauce is perfect comfort food for this ridiculously cold weather we are all having right now. Personally, I think the world’s universal dress code should be jammies. Jammies 24/7! Jammies for Prez 2016!! Jammies 4 life 🙂

  11. I think you made a good call to stay in…comfy clothes, scallops, fillet, and a nice warm fireplace sounds great to me! This Mushroom Stroganoff is looking FINE! I could have it as a meat free meal and be completely happy. I’m going to check out Raquel’s book right now!

    • I agree that we made the right decision to stay in! Thanks, Thao! Totally check out Raquel’s book! It’s great!

  12. Sounds like you had a lovely Valentines Day at home…and a delicious meal to boot! This recipe sounds delicious, perfect for meatless Mondays when you’re starving and need something carby and creamy to fill up on!! 🙂 Sounds yummy!

  13. I’m just catching up from the long weekend. I think your night sounded perfect. And no judgment from this end. I sometimes work until mid-afternoon in my jammies. The joys of working from home.

    I love this recipe! I might have to make it tonight. I was going to make roasted carrot soup, but this just made me drool, so……

    • Ah, the long weekend seems like a distant memory, Linda. At lest a regular one is a day away! I love the days I can work from home in my jammies! Roasted carrot soup sounds delicious too! I hope you like it and let me know how you like it veganized! 🙂
