Cooking up a storm!

As I mentioned here, one of my new year’s resolutions is to be more organized with meal prep, shopping, planning etc.  I am happy to report that this is going well (2nd week of the year…lol) and I am on dinner #4 for this week!!

Here’s what I have cooked!!

Monday: Baked Spaghetti

I use the recipe that I posted about here….of course it always changes a bit, depending on what I have in the cupboard.  This week it was penne noodles, since I was out of spaghetti noodles.  Always a hot though…and the leftovers are perfect for my hubby to take to work.

Tuesday: Cheesy potatoes w/ Smoked Sausage

I tried this recipe that I found on Pinterest.  It was good…but maybe a little TOO cheesy (can’t believe I am even saying that).  Will make again, but will tone down the cheese next time!

Wednesday: Italian Wedding Soup

No picture for this…but it’s good…and here is the recipe:

1 pound of sausage (I use Turkey sausage)
2 large boxes cans of chicken broth
½ box acini de pepe (8 oz) (I use a little less I think)
1 bunch of fresh spinach
Italian seasoning

Brown sausage, drain.  I sprinkle in some Italian seasoning (approx. 1 table spoon) add chicken broth.  Bring to boil, add ½ box of the acini de pepe and spinach.  Simmer on low for 20 minutes.
Thursday: Tacos
Tonight is taco night....can't go wrong there!!
~Yay for week 1...patting myself on the back.  Lets hope this trend sticks for a bit!~
