|What exactly is a Fly Army?|
Anyway, here it is another freezing cold morning. The heat just runs and runs and that bugs me. I hate the sound of my money flying out the window to the electric company. But feeling pretty blessed that I have a good furnace that is keeping me warm!! Man, this has been a cold January. And yeah, I know it's Winter... but we live south of the Mason-Dixon line, so I expect a little better! :-)
All this cold weather makes me want to make lots of yummy comfort foods. That's a good thing, as long as I am keeping it clean! Soups and roasts! Yes! And what else shall we have this week???? Well, let's see!
Creamy Tomato Soup - This is super-duper easy and can be doubled or tripled without problem. Season to the taste you want. I add some basil! And what else goes with tomato soup but.....
Toasted Cheese Sandwich - The secret to this recipe is in the cooking!
Honey Balsamic Chicken Tenders - I made a balsamic pot roast this week that was out of this world, so now balsamic vinegar is my new best friend. Can't wait to try these! I will pair them with a nice salad!
Pepperoncini Brisket - This is so easy it doesn't even really require a recipe. Just drop a brisket into your slow cooker and dump a jar of pepperoncini (including the liquid) over it. Cook on low for about 10 hours.
Brisket Sandwiches - What a fabulous way to use up leftovers! Just tear the leftover brisket up, reheat, and serve over clean bread!
We will also have a mustgo night... everything in the fridge Must Go! If there's not much in the way of leftovers, we have stuff to make pizza with a Trader Joe's whole wheat crust.
Some other tasties we might have this week include......
Apple Pie Balls - I haven't made these in a while but they take just minutes and are so delightful!
Chocolate Dipped Figs - Another super easy treat! Awesome!!!!
Clean Eating Granola - This is my favorite granola recipe. You can add other ingredients if you like, but this one is perfection to me! I eat it as a cereal, mixed in with Greek yogurt, or as a snack!
Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats - MR has been making this about once a week for over a year. This is his breakfast every weekday morning. He makes a slow cooker full on the weekend and then scoops out a serving every morning for his breakfast. So easy, so yummy! And you can add other ingredients if you like!
