You ever have a week where nothing really sounds good? Where you try to plan it out, going through all your recipes and just can’t find anything that fits? That was definitely me this week! This hits me more in the winter months, and this week was especially hard.
Until I found these two soup recipes! These fit my mood perfectly. After I found those, all the rest of the menu just fell into place 🙂
Of course, I also whipped up another batch of Skinny Chicken Enchiladas, Breakfast Burritos and our regular Mason Jar Salads. Along with that, we bought some extra chicken this week and I made extra of both Buffalo and Southwestern Shredded Chicken to freeze for later weeks!
On to the three new recipes!
Tuscan Tortellini Soup – This soup was creamy, rich and oh-so-delicious! Definitely a good choice and I will be making it again. I did make one small change and used evaporated milk instead of heavy cream.
Sausage, Potato and Spinach Soup – A bit lighter than the other soup but no less tasty. It kinda reminded me of a little spicier version of Zuppa Tuscana. I made the same change to this one, using evaporated milk instead of heavy cream.
Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken – I love this recipe…I think I’m finding that I really like recipes with cashews in them!
You know when you think you picked up everything at the store, only to realize later that you didn’t? Well…that is what happened this week! I ended up going to the store to pick up cashews and tortellini about halfway through my cooking session. The tortellini was totally my fault, but I’m blaming Draz for the cashews 😛 I thought we had some left from the last time I used them in a recipe…turns out he enjoyed them as a snack instead!
So when I realized later that I didn’t buy enough eggs to make my normal double batch of burritos, there was no way I was going to the store for a second time! So this week was a bit smaller on the burritos, but still plenty for Draz and I to enjoy 🙂
That’s it for this week! What did you cook this week? Any new recipes? I would love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment below!
