Friday: Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup with Kale
tortellini soup is on regular rotation around here in the Winter. I like that it's similar to chicken noodle soup, but the cheese tortellini gives it that extra cheesy flavor. And the veggies make it extra healthy. This is great with extra parmesan sprinkled on top.
Saturday: Chicken Sausage and Veggie Sheet Pan Supper, Bread, Fruit
this recipe, although I didn't have all the veggies on hand. I used Aidell's Chicken and Apple Sausage (I ate this while on the Whole30 and still love it, so it's a new favorite), bell peppers, and potatoes. The flavor was delicious, and just as tasty the next morning mixed with scrambled eggs. I also made a quick no-knead loaf of bread. Strawberries were on the table but I only got one before the kids ate them all.
Sunday: Taco Casserole, Chips and Guacamole
Cheesy Low-Carb Taco Casserole, and it honestly wasn't my favorite. It was a mixture of riced cauliflower, ground turkey, tomatoes, cheese, and taco seasonings. I went light on the cheese, so it wasn't super cheesy. Jenna wouldn't touch it, but Andrew loved it! On the side we had chips and guacamole.
Monday: Bean and Bacon Soup, Cheddar Biscuits, Cucumber
Bean with Bacon Soup was a yummy Pioneer Woman recipe. It made such a huge batch that I've been eating bean soup for most of my lunches this week. On the side I made our favorite Whole Wheat Cheddar Garlic Drop Biscuits. The kids love them because they kind of taste like my homemade cheez-its. Jenna and I also had some cucumbers.
Tuesday: Chicken and Veggie Stir-Fry over Quinoa, Raspberries
I made a quick stir-fry using up the veggies we had on hand, which included broccoli, carrots, and onions. I also cooked some chicken with it, and covered everything in hoison sauce and a little sesame oil. The kids had rice but I had mine over quinoa. Raspberries on the side because the kids love them!
I've got chicken cooking in the crockpot right now to make these tonight:
I feel like we ate some really good food this week! I'll likely keep it simple tomorrow night, and then I'll be back at it on Sunday, meal planning and grocery shopping for next week. Good thing I like food. Otherwise cooking for a family would feel like such a chore! What are you all eating this week?
