Fantastical Friday

Yum





Keeping it short and simple today and thought it was fitting to share a quote from someone who did so much for society in his short lifetime - and whose birthday was this week. I am not a Republican or a Democrat, so this is not aimed at one side. Remember to be kind. Be understanding. Show compassion. Smile at someone. Put more laughter into the world. It doesn't matter who is the President or who is not the President. It matters how we as a society treat each other. Spread love, not hate. *off the soapbox*

Another burrito bowl recipe hits the blog...I think I have at least 2 or 3 more. *nervous smile* I am just in love with these because they remind me of how you build your own Petros (frito pie). You pick your toppings and everyone is happy. My oldest kiddo, Matthew, is really picky with toppings, so he opted for beans and lettuce. My daughter, Cambria, likes a lot of things, but NOT guacamole. I am the least picky of the family, so I loaded mine up! I love that this recipe also included zucchini and yellow squash because I feel like I never make those enough and they are two favorites.

This recipe makes a great deal of food, so if you are needing to feed 6 to 8 people...this is the recipe you want. It's seriously such a great recipe!

Welcome to another Food Fight! Fantastical Food Fight is a group of food bloggers who will get a theme or ingredient each month and make some sort of variation for it. It could be traditional or nontraditional and can be found in a cookbook, on a blog, or be a blogger's own creation! For more details, check out this page.

The month of January is apparently Slow Cooker month AND Soup month, so I figured it would be awesome to make our January Food Fight have the theme SLOW COOKER SOUP. I, for one, am really excited to see what everyone else shares because I love soup and I am running out of recipes for soup and that is NOT okay. Be sure to check out the bottom of the post to find out whose Shortbread Cookies reigned supreme :)

I decided upon the ONLY slow cooker recipe for soup that I had on my main dish board on Pinterest. *le sigh* It is a delicious recipe though, so it wasn't all bad. I have posted a ton of corn chowders lately - most of them have potatoes and bacon too. But this one is different in that it has red potatoes and Italian seasoning...and LOTS of corn. I love how much corn it had. I topped mine with a little cheese when I served it because cheese. LOL.

Crockpot Chicken, Potatoes, and Green Beans

Yum
 All you'll need for dinner goes into the crockpot and you are set!

Dinner does not have to be complicated to be delicious. It also does not have to be time-consuming. Typically, I love crockpot meals for those two reasons. They aren't always simple, but the recipes that are...give.me.life. This recipe has four parts: chicken, potatoes, green beans, and the seasoning to top the other three parts. Not complicated at all, right?! The chicken turns out so tender and juicy and you have both sides to serve up with it ready at the same time with no additional effort needed!

Menu Plan Monday - January 16, 2017

Yum
Menu Plan Monday for Jan 16, 2017 // What I'm making this week #menuplanmonday #mealplan

While making this week's grocery list, there was so little compared to most weeks and I love it! And it's not that there are a lot of processed out of box meals here either. Most are fresh ingredients or things I get to make with ingredients I already have on hand (like the breakfasts and pizza dough!). I am definitely looking forward to a ton of these meals.

Monday - Maple Bars // Sundried Tomato and Asparagus Pesto Pasta with Steak
Tuesday - Creamy Salsa Verde Enchiladas
Wednesday - Leftover Tomato Basil Soup (in our freezer)
Thursday - Snickerdoodle Crumble Donuts // Unstuffed Cabbage Roll Skillet
Friday - Chicken and Broccoli Calzones
Saturday - Huevos Rancheros // Butterscotch Pudding
Sunday - Southern Slow Steaks (sides)
