Wow, do I ever wish my kids ate soup. All that polar vortexing really makes you crave some hot-all-the-way-down soup. Even our warm day was so rainy my husband came home asking for soup and so I am exploring some new recipes.
I am trying this bean soup the short way (i.e., canned), and I am so intrigued by the "boiled water soup" at Tipsy Baker that I bought the sage leaves. As she said--everything else I already had, so really, $1.69 extra at Trader Joe's shouldn't break the bank for the week.
Maybe this will be the year the kids start eating soup. A mom can dream.
Monday: Joanne's Pork Tenderloin, roasted potatoes, apples or applesauce
Wednesday: Spaghetti (with sausage and sauce for my husband)
Friday: Apricot Chicken, rice, salad
One amazing thing this week; now that we have Kindles I've rediscovered my Kindle books and one is the Dinner: A Love Story book. One of the recipes in it is the shrimp and feta bake, which she admits will lose lots of people with the seafood + cheese action. Ignore that "problem." This was awesome and with pre-peeled shrimp, came together very quickly. I chopped three garlic cloves because that's how we roll here, and I could have put on lots more feta than I did and still been very happy. Alas our children didn't eat it but they had Crazy Jane's chicken and the rice we served the shrimp over and no one went hungry.
Nothing exotic but it's busy right now and I am in maintenance mode. Hoping you are having a good week and staying warm wherever you are!
