1. I created a new 15 minute meal – BBQ Chicken Nachos
I can’t wait to share this recipe with you! And if I get my act together, that will be tomorrow. You have got to make these! I know you have time, because they only take 15 minutes.
2. Healthy snack alternative – 1 Minute Apples
I’ve been in a terrible habit (not sure if I can really call it a habit since I’ve been doing it all my life!) of eating a sweet snack every night. Often it’s ice cream. Have I mentioned I love ice cream?
I also have a son who loves to bake and has a sweet tooth as big as mine. Lately he’s been baking brownies or chocolate chip cookies nearly every night. One night (and only one night, so far) I decided I should have something a little bit healthier. I made a bowl of 1 Minutes Apples and sprinkled a bit of granola over the top. Instant apple crisp in a single serving!
I skipped the ice cream and went for a spoon of vanilla yogurt on top of the apples instead.
3. Slow Cooker Freezer Meal to the rescue – Chicken Curry Soup
Wednesday was an extra busy day and I also knew that we wouldn’t all be home for dinner at the same time. But we would all be eating at home at some point. On days like that, I like to serve something that will hold over well and doesn’t need a lot of sides to go with it.
Soup usually fits really well for those occasions. I had a bowl of Thai Chicken Curry Soup in the freezer from my last freezer cooking session. It took care of dinner that night and several lunches over the next few days too.
