Today I’m giving an unsolicited shout out for a service we’ve been using and sharing a couple of really yummy recipes we’ve tried recently.
A few months ago we started using Emeals. We’ve tried several of the menu plans and have most recently settled on the “Clean Eating” plan as it seems to more consistently fit with how we eat. The weekly menus have provided some great variety to meal times that had been in a major rut and the pre-planned shopping lists are easy to add to my regular list each week. Most of the meals are super quick and easy to prepare and will often provide leftovers for the weekend. What I may love most about Emeals, though, is their lunch menu plan. Lunch has long been a frustrating meal to make…I don’t want to cook in the middle of the day, it’s just the girls and me here, and it really needs to be quick with minimal clean up. Their lunch menu plan has been a life-saver this year. It has provided some great variety, and all the meals are designed to be “packed” lunches, which means they are very quick and easy to prepare. The girls and I have both enjoyed them very much. Win win!
As much as we’ve enjoyed the Clean Eating plan, the past couple of week’s menus have been pretty heavy on red meat and fish (neither of which we eat much of), so I’ve been trying out some Pinterest recipes. And I’m so glad I did! Here are two that we have really enjoyed this week…
The first dish we tried was these Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas. Oh my. So good! And pretty, too! I never make pretty food, so that was an added bonus! It seems like it’s a very flexible recipe as far as what veggies you use. I just used what we had on hand – jalapeno peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, sweet potato, onion, and frozen corn. Even the leftovers were delicious. This one is definitely going in the regular meal rotation.
We also tried this tomato basil soup recipe. This is the closest I have found to replicating Jason’s Deli’s tomato basil soup. I don’t own an immersion blender and had to pour the mix into my blender and back to the pot. An immersion blender would definitely be easier. I served this soup with grilled cheese sandwiches on a cool, cloudy night this week. Very, very yummy.
Tonight we’re having a modified version of this beans and rice recipe – cheap and easy, which is about all I’m up for at this point in the week. 🙂
How about you – what’s cooking at your house this week?
