Meal updates from last week:
We LOVED the mediterranean salmon as well as the zuppa Toscana. The soup got even better sitting in the fridge and was delicious for lunch. I had made the caprese chicken before and it was a hit once again. Pair it with a caesar salad and some parmesan pasta and your kids will gobble it up!
This week we will be eating at home Sunday-Wednesday, I will be out on Thursday and then my husband and I are heading out of town for the weekend. The cold weather broke today and it looks like the rest of the week will be a lot warmer. Below I will share recipes that I made for Sunday and Monday dinner, plus the rest of my weekly recipes.
- Thai slow cooker chicken and wild rice soup from @sweetpeasandsaffron we ate this with cheese buns for dipping. This soup is amazing! I only use two Tbsp of curry paste as I don’t want it too spicy for the kids. This makes a big amount of soup, so invite friends or freeze the leftovers.
- Caramel shrimp with coconut rice from @cookingforkeeps I didn’t have a chance to make the rice as it was a basketball night, so I served this with brown rice, edamame and green beans. I decided to half the sauce and there was still enough for four servings.
- Stuffed Italian mini meatloaves from @iowagirleats I will serve this with some green beans and a salad.
- Sausage and veggie sheet pan, I have shared recipes for this before, but tonight I am going to keep it simple and roast everything together. I am going to use broccoli and potatoes as my veg, I like to slice the potatoes on a mandolin, they turn into baked potato chips that my kids devour. Here are some other sheet pan meals: sausage and greens, sausage and veggies and healthy sausage and veggies.
As I mentioned last week, I have started to think about my holiday baking, I even put a few Christmas decorations up today! My husband always heads home in late November and I like to send some homemade goodies for his dad and grammas. As always I will be making and sending nuts and bolts, this is a simple yet delicious holiday treat. In the past I have made cookies and a couple of years ago I made turtles, this year I think I am going to make peppermint or turtle bark. Both recipes come together in less than twenty minutes, but look and taste like you spent way more time! I will make sure to update when I have decided/made the recipes. There will be no time for any baking in this house this week. My son just finished the pumpkin muffins that I had in the freezer, I still have a lemon blueberry loaf that I made in late summer. Once that is gone then I know it is time for more baking 😉
