Here we go with more snow! There’s more on the ground right now and my grandmother’s old saying about how if snow stays on the ground for 3 days or more it is waiting for more turned out to be true. I think that the weather has inspired some of the “warmer” recipes this week. What have been some of your favorites so far? I was shocked how much everyone here loved the Tuna Pasta from last week. I decided to branch out in the “seafood” department once more this week (I hope I am not pushing my luck)! If you want to follow my Weekly Meal Plan Pinterest Board you can here: Weekly Meal Plan
TOMATO SOUP AND GRILLED CHEESE
This good old fashioned meal is always a hit. I just buy canned soup and use extra butter on my sandwiches. If you wanted to try your hand at homemade there’s this recipe: Homemade Tomato Soup
MISSISSIPPI POT ROAST WITH CRUSTY BREAD
One other quick think you need to know if you are new here is that my youngest son is allergic to milk, wheat and eggs so often times I will link up recipes that are free from those. If I don’t, I often substitute. With that being said, here is an allergy free delicious recipe: Mississippi Pot Roast
SALMON CAKES AND SALAD
Salmon patties bring me back to the days of my grandmother, Nanny. I am missing her quite a bit right now, so these seemed fitting. I will purchase a bag salad from Trader Joes: Salmon Cakes
I am super excited about this recipe! While it is hard to make lasagna due to Davis’s allergies, I can make this and eliminate the allergens from his portion. I also love that this is less “heavy” than your typical lasagna. Recipe here: Lasagna Soup
I’m sure there are recipes for this everywhere, but I just keep it simple.
What you need:
- protein of choice (I will use ground beef)
- taco seasoning (you can buy a packet or make your own)
- black beans, drained
- frozen corn (I love the Mexican roasted corn from Trader Joe’s)
- tortilla chips
- shredded cheese
- shredded lettuce
- sour cream
- any other toppings you love!
- Brown or cook your meat with the seasoning and pre-heat an oven to 350
- Line a cooking sheet with nachos and top with meat, beans, and frozen corn
- Top with shredded cheese
- Warm for about 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and corn is no longer frozen
- Remove from the oven and top with your favorite toppings!
This is a great way to get kids invested in what they are eating. Even if you have picky eaters, they tend to eat more if they helped make it (or at least that’s what has worked for me).
I hope you guys have a wonderful week and stay warm!
