It is so nice to be back into our normal routine with grocery shopping and meal planning! It's kind of lame, but cooking dinner is a stress reliever for me. It gives me something (somewhat) mindless to focus on, and the results are definitely something we benefit from. :)
Here are some of the meals we've been eating recently!
The chilly nights here lately call for soup! This Crock Pot Loaded Baked Potato Soup was a hit with even Brian, who proclaims himself "not a soup person." I am slowly changing his mind. :) You also have to love a good Crock Pot meal. So little effort!
Another great Crock Pot meal! This Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Biscuits was a little bit like a deconstructed Chicken Pot Pie (one of my favorites!) I used Pillsbury biscuits to make this dinner even easier.
This is the second time I've made this Baked Penne with Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomatoes. It's one of those meals that causes me to make a huge mess (like get every pan in the kitchen dirty), but it makes two trays of pasta so I can freeze one for later. Which makes the mess worth it.
This is one of my new favorites from Iowa Girl Eats (although I tend to love most of her recipes)! Vegetable Beef and Barley Soup was easy to prepare and packed with flavor. A great way to make sure we're getting our veggies and healthy grains. :)
While trying to jazz up breakfast for dinner, I made these Hash Brown Egg Baskets. A perfect little package of hash browns, eggs, bacon, and cheese...what's not to like? I served these with easily the best pancakes ever. I may never make them from a box again!
Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana from Skinny Taste has my gears turning about what else I could use to stuff chicken breasts. This version was delicious and easy...and not to mention healthy! I can definitely get on board with that.
