So, due to not having to work on Monday, I was able to enjoy Sunday night at my parents house. My mom made this delicious Buffalo Chicken Lasagna. It had a amazing flavor, just enough heat, and I didn’t have to make it. I will be making it in the future though because it was so yummy and I know Mike would love it.
Monday and Tuesday we did separate dinners, but I did make dinner on Wednesday. In honor of Ash Wednesday, I made this yummy Broccoli Cheddar Soup. It wasn’t as healthy as it tasted. It tasted a lot less cheesy than many other broccoli cheddar soups, so I was optimistic about the calories. However, when I put the recipe into MyFitnessPal I learned there were 615 calories per serving! Oops. So, I’m going to have to find a healthier recipe. Sucks though because the soup was really good and it gave me a chance to use my new Cuisinart Immersion Blender which I love! So I’m also looking for more recipes that let me experiment with my new fun toy. Suggestions welcome.
Thursday I broke out the crock pot again and decided to make these Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches. Again, I was able to put everything in the crock pot before I left for work and everything was ready for us when we got home. we were able to have a quick hot meal and I barely had to do any “cooking”.
Friday Mike had to work so I went to happy hour with some friends and had some leftover soup for dinner later. Then Saturday night I made some chicken stir fry. I just took one chicken breast (cut into small cubes), a bag of frozen Birdseye Broccoli Stir Fry, and kikoman stir fry sauce and “fried” away. First, I poured a little EVOO in the pan and added my chicken. After a few minutes, I dumped the bag of frozen veggies in the pan and let those cook up. Meanwhile, I also made some brown rice. After a few minutes of the veggies cooking, I added the stir fry sauce. I let the chicken and veggies cook another 2-3 minutes and then served it over rice. Quick, easy, healthy, and tasty. My kind of dinner.
