I have a short and sweet post for you today about what we have been eating in the empty nest. I love a meal ideas post, personally!
I made a fall salad with spring mix, craisins, cornbread crips from Trader Joes, feta and a homemade olive oil dressing.
and we also had some tomato soup and grilled cheese to go with it.
I made the pumpkin pasta from Jen from Show Me and Sweet Tea. This was my first time using whole wheat pasta and I really liked it!
I bought a bag of pumpkin bagels to keep in the freezer and I had one for my lunch one day. I just used regular cream cheese but Jen from above says that Trader Joes has a great pumpkin cream cheese you can pair it with.
And, I make these southwest burrito bowls from Andrea of Momfessionals at least every other week. Mason told me he misses these for dinner so that was sweet! I cannot wait to have a list of meals to cool for my boys when they come home.
And just your standard spaghetti. Tom likes angel hair and Prego Chunky Garden and I add a small amount of lean ground beef.
We have been eating out or getting take out too much, but I guess we are still in that empty nester honeymoon phase where we are mixing it up a bit. We go out Friday, Saturday and get takeout one or two other nights right now.
I am trying to start Soup Sundays but I have gone out the last two Sundays! I have yet to make my first batch of chili but that will be soon.
What have you been eating?
