Hello folks! Today is my Friday and I have never been so happy to see a fake Friday. Ya buddy! <—Jersey Shore anyone?! Pauly D fans unite!
This week I was out and about during the week quite a bit and will continue to be over the weekend, so when planning my menu on Sunday I had to be pretty strategic. I not only wanted to use up all the groceries I had, but also didn’t want to cook every single day. I like to do most of my cooking Sunday and divide it up for lunch or dinner for a few days in the week. That way I just have to cook up some sides and I’m good to go! Leftovers LOVE!
Here is what this week’s eats looked a little like…
Broccoli Cheese Soup from my new favorite recipe magazine, Weight Watchers Four Ingredient 10 Minute Recipes.
Blue Cheese Olive Stuffed Chicken w/ Garlic Mashed Blue Potatoes and Sautéed Spinach.<—All recipes from the same magazine above. Good buy Mom & Dad!
Spicy Turkey Sauce over whole grain pasta w/ sautéed garlic spinach and grape tomatoes.
Oh, and there was some serious snacking going on with these roasted pumpkin seeds. I used the same recipe from my Halloween Recipe Roundup.
I’m sure you are wondering what the cute little pumpkin looks like where I got these seeds. Ready for this?
Ugh. The original idea was super cute Hello Kitty. I was carving her little bow all nice and pretty then snip…all gone. My great carved pumpkin became just a big ol’ pumpkin with a hole in it after my little knife slipped and cut Hello Kitty’s face straight off.
Eh. At least there were seeds to enjoy afterwards.
Hope you guys are having a good week and that your carved pumpkin was more successful than mine. Not very hard really. 😉
