Food is a big part of our life. I love cooking and (sometimes) enjoy cooking and eating with my family. I am a big believer in eating dinner together. We sit down together pretty much every day for dinner. Sometimes it is great and other times it is a chore, but still, we sit down together.
Here is last weeks menu:
Turkey Sliders (I mix BBQ sauce, spinach and onions into the meat): everyone at my house likes them
Roast Chicken and veggies: Easy comfort food that everyone likes, and I made an extra chicken to use for meals later in the week.
Here is where I went a little crazy.
My mom, brother, sister in-law, and twin nephews were coming for the weekend, I love having them here but everything takes more time when there are 3 babies and one kid in a house. To make it easier on everyone I got busy and made several meals before they got here.
|Every burner was going|
First up was baby food, yes I make baby food.
|White beans, chard, sweet potatoes, garlic, onion, and carrots (add Parmesan and crusty bread and is is tasty for everyone)|
Next up: Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas: They were fast to make because I used leftover chicken.
|Thank you mom flying with a cooler of chile.|
Then I made, Italian Sausage soup: Tons of veggies, turkey Italian sausage, pasta, tomatoes and broth.
Finally I made chicken stock with the leftover chicken and the carckuses, I will spare the you the pictures. I will use the stock for chicken soup and chicken pot pie next week. I will spare the you the pictures.
When I was done cooking I was ready for dinner. I enjoyed a glass of wine and a bowl of cereal.
What are you cooking this week?
