Soup with LOTS of lemon and lime is a must for me when it comes to chicken soup. I make herb lemon chicken soup several times during the winter. Surprisingly, I haven't made it much this winter. I love saving the leftovers, in the freezer for those sick days, as I don't enjoy canned soup much. Leftover soup tastes even better the following the day. It's even a better recipe for the crockpot. It smells so good cooking the whole day.
There are many nights, when I don't feel like cooking or my husband grabbed something to eat. Meaning I can make something small for me and the kids. The kids prefer bread meals since they are kids! Lucky me, because bread meals are pretty easy. Especially on weeknights when the kids are at after school activities. It's a lot of running around and so I always have naan at home just for these meals! Here are 7 Kid Friendly Naan Pizza Ideas to Try.
Now more than ever, it is important to keep kids active and healthy. When COVID stopped our lives, we became couch potatoes. Just waiting for it to pass.

Most people like fried rice. You never make it, but rather have it when you order take out at a Chinese restaurant. Today is a perfect day to make a healthy vegetable fried rice for meatless Monday! It's all about the vegetables in this dish. Farro with Roasted Vegetables (Meatless Monday) is another great dish to make for a meatless meal. Farro is very filling and healthy!
I was thinking of what to call this salad. Besides the color orange, we have the colors of the rainbow in this salad. I decided on calling it the Rainbow Roasted Vegetable Salad. Here we have red peppers and red onions. The onions look purple. Not sure where red comes in! Then there is broccolini and kale, corn and chickpeas and lastly, the blue cheese. This salad was so filling and so good! I went shopping for the ingredients for a second time. On my list for dinner this week, AGAIN!
Chicken can become boring especially when you have it most days of the week. Chicken is versatile and you can serve it in so many ways. One of my go to meals is corn salsa served over grilled chicken thighs. It is simple and super tasty. If you read my blogs you may have noticed a pattern here. EASY and SIMPLE meals with TONS of flavor. That's my motto.
What to make and do with leftovers? That’s always a question we all have. Most dismiss the idea of what to do and either save what’s left for the next day or toss it. There are so many things to make with leftovers. One thing I hate is to waste food. Whether I plan to use the food for later that day, the next day or a few days later there is always something you can incorporate with your leftovers. If you don’t plan to use it anytime soon then freeze it!
