I think this will be an easy dinner to ease Scott into the Whole 30. He won't feel like he's missing anything with this soup full of yummy vegetables and ground beef. It's so warm and comforting, delicious, and it makes a ton, so it'll be good for refrigerating/freezing one serving batches for lunches or snacks later in the week. The Pioneer Woman never disappoints!
Roasted Potatoes and Zucchini
I made these Jalapeno Chicken Burgers back when I was doing Whole 30 the first time, and they were good and Scott liked them, so here they are again. I'm glad that potatoes are now Whole 30 compliant, and we can incorporate them into our meals. Roasting them up with some zucchini thrown in there too will make a perfect side dish for our chicken burgers.
I'm thinking that by Wednesday of this week, we're going to be worn out! It always takes a week or so for us to get back into the swing of a new routine, so I'm going to be wanting an easy dinner mid-week. I'm going to pick up a Rotisserie Chicken from the Kroger deli, and throw together an easy side. The zucchini noodles with marinated tomatoes could be easily eaten raw, but I think sauteing the noodles a bit will make it a little bit more like pasta. And don't they look so delicious?!
Pan Seared Pork Chops
Baked Sweet Potatoes
I am anxious for Thursday to try out this brussels sprouts recipe! I think it sounds delicious, and I am ready to try something new! I'm tired of green beans, broccoli, and collards (overdone over the holidays), and Scott mentioned that he wanted me to make some brussels sprouts for something different. Done! They should accompany the pork chops well, and will go nicely with a buttery baked sweet potato!
The Hamburger Soup recipe calls for 2 1/2 pounds of ground beef, and the chicken burgers call for 3 pounds, so there is no doubt that we should have plenty of food left to scrounge up dinner before we head to Aiken for a quick weekend trip.
So what are you eating this week?? Don't tell me if it's covered in cheese, or with delicious fresh bread or something though, I'll be terribly jealous and tempted... :)
