So, here I am with some spare time on my hands and I know I shouldn’t be eating out (and a dishwasher!!!). It’s also luckily warm comfy food season (because it recently dropped to sub-zero temperatures when it was 70* last week, whatever!), so that means getting to cook lots of pasta dishes, soups, and rice dishes that I can store in my fridge and heat up in no time so I can avoid paying Dig Inn $12 every time I want to eat a healthy and quick meal.
The weekend before last I made three things that lasted through the week:
- Jordan’s Crack Pasta (not healthy at all, but it’s so good)
- Curried Butternut Bisque (aka butternut squash soup, similar recipe)
- Penne with Tomato, Cream, and Five Cheeses (recipe)
Since this is a short week (not to mention I will inevitably go home with a bag of leftovers on Thanksgiving), I’m not cooking much. But I did make Creamy Rice & Sweet Peas (recipe) today. SO good.
Let’s not forget the Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread that I baked from scratch (I used a recipe that my high school boyfriend’s sister gave me in 2005 – so long ago) and Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding that I made today.
I went through my huge binder of recipes last night and pulled a dozen more or so to make over the next few weeks (though I’m starting a gig on Monday). It’s so much easier, and healthier, than eating out.
If you have any suggestions for awesome, healthy recipes that I can make it bulk, leave it below!
