I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner and he said “something Mexican flavored,” so here goes my first attempt at enchiladas! The were relatively easy to make, and I had most of the ingredients at home already, which is always a win! Give them a try! Enjoy!
Are you sick and tired of the same old breakfast? Here’s an easy, no prep meal that you can make ahead of time and eat throughout the week. The bonus? You make it in the crockpot! Crockpot steel cut oats are super easy! When you’re ready to eat, garnish them with your favorite flavors. I added a little honey, cinnamon, walnuts and craisins. Yum! I also added some chia seeds for additional fiber.
Combine 4 ½ cups of water with 1 cup of oats. Add ¼ teaspoon of salt for taste (optional).
Cook on low for 6-8 hours (or high for 2 ½ – 3 hours) or until desired texture. Stir once part way through the cook time.
Top with your favorite toppings. I used pecans, craisins, and a little cinnamon.
This amount serves 4. I put the leftovers in a container and refrigerated. I scooped out the amount I wanted each morning and then reheated in the microwave. If needed, you can add a little water to thin it and reheat.
Usually once a week we have a pasta night. It is mainly due to being easy to make, and to be honest, we love pasta! Our normal pasta night consists of penne/ziti/whatever is in our cabinet, marinara sauce, and frozen turkey meatballs. I thought to myself, how hard is it to make meatballs? Well, the answer is… not hard at all! There are so few ingredients, and even fewer steps to make them. My husband doubted my ability to make meatballs because I never had done so before, but he couldn’t stop raving about them! Give them a try. Enjoy!
