Homemade Sweet Potato Soup

You can’t get fresher than this! Our Homemade Sweet Potato Soup is made with Fresh Sweet Potatoes, Onion, Garlic, Sage, a teaspoon of Salt and Vegetable Broth. Toss everything in our new Deluxe Cooking Blender, push a button and Soup pops out in about 15 minutes. It was sooooo yummy! We paired it with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

Thick Spaghetti

Have you ever tried Thick Spaghetti? When we went shopping, Jennifer asked us not to get “thin” spaghetti. So, we found “thick” noodles. We bought them mostly as a joke because “thin is NOT in” at our house. But, they are some of the best pasta noodles I’ve had. They almost remind me of Okinawa Soba Noodles. We are hooked and will have them again!

Roasted Chicken & Veggies

We tested out our new Half Sheet Pan & Baking Rack Set on our dinner tonight to see if it helped make it taste better. We roasted Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs over Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts, Carrots and Onions. The ruling was that it indeed helped make the bacon crispy on all sides.

Beef Bourguinon

We tested another Pampered Chef Meal Starter Sauce and made Quick Cooker Beef Bourguinon for dinner. Sear the meat, add potatoes, carrots and the sauce, and voila! Dinner makes itself.

Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Morgan and Sophie made dinner tonight. We had Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Stuffing, Sweet Peas and Cranberry Sauce. It almost felt like a pre-Thanksgiving feast.

Chicken Pot Pie

For dinner, Sophie baked us some Chicken Pot Pies, which were pretty tasty. We haven’t had them in awhile.

Pasta Carbonara

I called Gram on my way home from work, and we were discussing life and recipes. That got my craving going for homemade Pasta Carbonara, and I had to run to the store and buy the ingredients. It was amazing!
