Well, this week we’d planned to go see lights in Yukon but it was very cold, so we decided it was best not to go. Thankfully I’d planned Trim Train Italian Soup for one day this week. Since it makes a large pot of soup, I chose to make this that night. It fed the four of us and left enough for another complete meal.
I’ve also planned to make minestrone. We’ll have that tonight for dinner. I’ll make with it with seasoned boneless skinless chicken breast, ground up in the food processor. Consequently it will be low fat, so I will include some brown rice elbow macaroni in place of the ditalini but it has lots of veggies, so it will be yummy.
It snowed most of the day on Sunday. It was gorgeous!!! I hear it’s supposed to snow today too. So I’ll be glad for the minestrone soup tonight. I gave Michael his choice of soup Sunday. He quickly chose Chili. (I substitute Gentle Sweet and a bit of molasses for the brown sugar.) He also asked that it be a double batch. Thankfully I keep the ingredients for chili on hand since it is one of his favorite meals.
Of course, we generally have pizza on Friday or Saturday night. That only left a few meals for the week. We haven’t had tacos in a while and I was wanting them, so they made it on the menu and we had it last night. Yum! I used a low carb tortilla.
So this is the menu for the week:
- Pizza (whole wheat 7 hour dough) and little cheese
- Trim Train Italian Soup
- Split Pea Soup
I don’t think anyone needs a recipe for tacos but I intend to put up my latest pizza recipe sometime soon.
I hope this menu helps you create your weekly menu.
Until next time, God bless,
