Farro with Roasted Vegetables (Meatless Monday)

Farro with Roasted Vegetables (Meatless Monday)

By now you can see how much I love roasted vegetables. Adding farro to the mix makes it even better. For those nights you don't want meat. And by that I mean chicken. My husband is perfectly fine having chicken for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I get tired of it. This farro bowl is hearty and very filling. You got yourself some nice fall colors in this dish. Very halloweenish if you asked me. All I did was make some roasted vegetables and then realized the halloween colors are all in this dish! HA! In 15 minutes you have all the vegetables you need for a nutritious meal.

Buttery Garlic Shrimp Pasta (Perfect for the Holidays)

Buttery Garlic Shrimp Pasta (Perfect for the Holidays)

For dinner I made a buttery garlic shrimp pasta. I have to admit I have been wanting pasta lately and my little one really enjoys it. It's also an excuse to make it more often. First of all it's easy, quick and very filling. Pasta is definitely a dish for those busy school nights. On top of that, the shrimp cooks in just about the same time your pasta cooks! I made this dish with the thought I could make it for Christmas Eve or Christmas. Pasta and seafood are dishes I lean towards for the holidays. Maybe because they are comforting dishes. Garlic Shrimp Pasta is easy but can be made as fancy as you want it!

Pizza Muffins for School Lunch

Pizza muffins for school lunch sounded like a great idea. The boys really love pizza and I mean very few people dislike pizza. Okay, I have met two people who don't like pizza. Can you believe it! Naan pizza are delicious but changing it up makes it more appealing than having the same style of pizza everyday.
