Welcome to this week’s edition of the Weekly Dinner Plan. I am trying to get these out earlier on Sunday so you as well have time to get your plans done. Last week was cray-cray and to think about it, I have no idea why. The week just flew by. But luckily we had our menu in place. Monday was a snowstorm and I ended up working late. Terry came and picked me up and we raced home to get started on our nightly routine. When we planned last week’s menu we saw that the weather would be pretty chilly with lots of precipitation so we decided on many comfort meals. Here is what we ate.
Weekly Dinner Plan
Like I said before, we were tight on time. So while Terry fed Ethan, I whipped up this soup. As we were hungry and had leftover pizza from the night before, we had some of that with it as well. This soup is really easy to make and is one of our go-tos. You can follow my recipe I posted earlier this year. I didn’t have any Swiss chard on hand and was saving my kale for another day, I added broccoli in, which I always keep on hand in the freezer.
Leftover Ramen Bowl.
Ate too much pizza on Monday! I made some more broth, added another packet of noodles and the rest of Mondays soup. Heated it up within five minutes (thank you induction stove) and dinner was served.
We made chilli but it was not my favourite chilli recipe so I won’t post the recipe. I invite you to make your favourite chilli recipe (and please share!).
Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup
I was super excited when I found this recipe on pinterest because first, it looked delicious and second, I pretty much had all the ingredients on hand (minus kale and sausage). This soup is quick (30 minutes) and easy to make. And not to mention, really tasty. A tip, I am also not a fan of having many dishes to clean (who is) and cooked the sausages first in the soup pot. Once they were nearly cooked, I set them aside in a bowl and continued with everything else. There was a bit of meat/fat stuck at the bottom but once I got to adding the broth in, it came off easily. Terry says this is called a glazing technique… you pour in your liquid slowly and gently remove anything stuck to the bottom of the pan. It worked.
Terry ate the chilli and I ate the Italian sausage and tortellini soup. And I still have some soup leftovers which is now tucked away in the freezer! Love that.
Here is the previous edition of my Weekly Dinner Plan series. Have a good week!
