It's been pretty cold here in the last two days. The forecast for tonight is 4F. Brrr... But it's also so sunny and beautiful. I love to see the contrast of sparkly-white snow and piercing-blue sky:
So beautiful!! I've been drinking a lot of hot cocoa and herbal tea lately. We are all finally getting better but it's a slow process. I still have a bit of a sore throat and a raspy voice, same as the little guy. But at least it's not unbearable any more.
I made quite a few soups in the last couple of weeks too and it actually ended up being my food waste from last week. I threw away a whole pot of delicious chicken tortilla soup. Unfortunately, I turned on the heat and forgot all about it :( Bleh.
Kind of killed my cravings for soup for some time. I actually took a picture of what was left of it but can't find it either on my computer or camera. That's what happens when you have more than two thousand pictures on it. I really need to do some memory cleaning....
Instead we will rely on other comfort foods right out of the oven this week. So far our menu looks like this:
Mon. - Asian salmon (using a marinade from this recipe), jasmine rise, california blend veggies
Tues.- cheese tortellini with salad
Wed.- shepherds pie, steamed carrots
Thurs.- baked chicken, leftover rice and whatever veggies I can find in our fridge
Fr.- pasta, chicken and spinach bake
Sat.-leftovers or pizza
Sun.- creamy chicken and rice soup (I do need to have at least one soup on the menu this week, right? :)
And what's on your menu this week? Do you have any yummy recipes to share?
