Just a Quick Hello
I have been unintentionally neglecting this blog for the past month. Since I started my new job and I am still teaching at night as well, I have been super busy. But I promise I have not forgotten, so I just wanted to pop in and say a quick hello! I am just sitting down to work on planning my grocery list/menu for the week, as Sunday is my day to hit up the grocery store before the craziness of the week begins.
I've been searching to find healthy, easy dinner ideas/recipes to prepare on weeknights or to prepare ahead of time. Having a slow cooker has definitely been a big help. I can throw a few ingredients together in the morning before I leave for work, and then dinner is ready and waiting when I get home. I'm always looking for new ideas to keep things fresh.
Some of my favorite weeknight recipes that I have tried or are on my list to try:
Crockpot Turkey White Bean Pumpkin Chili (I love how "fall" this recipe sounds)
Sloppy Slow Cooked Chicken Tacos (This is on my menu for the week...look for low sodium taco seasoning and no salt added tomato sauce so you can control the sodium)
Loose Meat Sandwiches (This is one of our favorites, but we've always used chicken broth and ground chicken breast instead of beef)
Here is my question: What are some favorite healthy and easy weeknight recipes you guys love?
