Note: Seem I forgot to change this post from Draft, so it has been hanging out here all week aging. Not sure if the flavor is any better, but the information is still useful.
Last week I had two new recipes on the meal plan to try – Potato Cheddar Soup and Cuban Black Bean Soup. Both of these were recipes from The Soup Club cookbook, which I had reviewed back in March. I was only able to make the Potato Cheddar Soup, but found that it will definitely be a repeat on our menu. To make it even better, it was a supper simple yet very tasty dish.
No new recipes this week. It is not because we have a hectic week, actually it is quite calm. It has more to do with me wanting simpler meals while I work on some things around the house. There are yard projects and jobs that I need to do before winter, things that have been put off all summer. I am not really wanting to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
Since it is Wednesday morning when this is getting posted, I can tell you that when I made the Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins for breakfast on Monday, I actually quadrupled the recipe. The only reason I did so many was because I had frozen the bag of zucchini in 4 cup quanities. It is a so delicious muffin and we could have eaten almost all of them if I had allowed the boys (and myself) to have access to them all day. About 3.5 dozen are freezer bound for future breakfasts. This is something I have not done a lot of these past few months. I miss having meals I can just pull out of the freezer and serve. It is such a time saver.
Even with having a fairly familiar meal plan this week, having put it together using Plan To Eat made it even simpler to formulate. All that was required was to click what I wanted and drag it to the day and time I wanted us to eat it. Now I can easily look at it in the morning, or the night before, and plan ahead accordingly. This is one ‘servant’ I am so glad to have in my service. (If you are interested in trying it out, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial by clicking the banner below.)
