Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween today! With the weather a bit cooler this week, I’m making several soups and slow cooker recipes for dinner.
I have found that cooking 7 meals a week is not really necessary for just me and my husband. Inevitably, we will have leftovers to use up or end up eating out for at least one of our dinners. In an effort to reduce waste and save money on groceries, I am only buying ingredients for 5 meals a week now.
Monday – Currried Butternut Squash Soup – I didn’t get around to making this last week, so we are trying it tonight!
Tuesday – Weight Watchers Smart Ones Entrees – this is a frozen “cheat” meal but I need to review these for a campaign, and it’s a work night so this will be an easy dinner for us.
Wednesday – pesto chicken (save money by making the pesto yourself)
Thursday – Slow Cooker Carnitas
Friday – Chicken Tortilla Soup – one of my husband’s favorites and most often requested recipes
