Eatin' Time!

Don't know what to cook for the upcoming week?  Do what I did...let Pinterest plan your menu!  We tried 4 new recipes last week and loved them all.  Here are the links to those four and a couple of other tried and true recipes from pinterest.  All recipe links have a print happy version except for the "loaded baked potato chicken casserole" recipe, but it is easy to copy and paste.  Happy eating, you all! 

1.  Creamy White Bean Stew with Bacon
(notes...this is stick to your ribs hearty stew...I will decrease lemon next time)

2.  Skinny Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones
(notes...these are "skinny" which means you can eat the whole batch if you want...ha! I followed the directions and wouldn't change anything. These are good with omelettes!)

3.  Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
(notes...these are super fast and super delish for a busy night.  Instead of making the cheese sauce, I just used provolone slices.)

4.  Tortellini Sausage Soup
(notes:  I accidentally thought it said apple cider vinegar instead of apple cider, so I used half the amount and increased the chicken broth...this soup is awesome, but I think I will follow directions next time!)

5.  New Orleans Red Beans and Rice
(notes:  hello budget friendly beans!  This is our fave way to eat them...I decrease the amt. of creole seasoning for the kids and increase the amt. of polska kielbasa (instead of andouille) for the man!)

6.  Loaded Baked Potato and Chicken Casserole
(notes:  I used a whole cut-up rotisserie chicken instead of cooking the chicken breasts.  I cooked the potatoes for about 45 minutes, added the goodies, then cooked for another 20 til nice and warm.  I will decrease the amt. of olive oil next time.  It recommends ranch or sour cream, but we found that BBQ sauce was mighty tasty!)

So there you have it...a week's worth of recipes!  I'd like to try the two ingredient lemon bars this week...all it takes is a box of angel food cake mix and a can of lemon pie filling...mmmm..have you tried those?

did your recipe call for frozen cheese tortellini (sp?) and if so where did you find it?
