Its cold here, really cold, dangerous windchill cold so we're planning lots of warm winter meals & also a few things we can double & freeze for later.
Beef Stew with Root Vegetables - recipe from Chocolate & Zucchini - RESULT: A nice hearty beef stew with a more soup-like broth. The long cooking makes for really tender beef.
Bread Chicken Breasts with Smashed Roasted Parsnips & Garlic - Using the leftover breading from the Faux Fried Chicken. - RESULT: The chicken was good but the star of this meal to me was the parsnips. A good alternative to potatoes.
Pasta with Butternut Squash & Lima Beans - from Bon Appétit Oct. '99 - RESULT: We used soybeans instead of lima beans. This was very good but cook longer next time.
Black Bean Chipotle Soup - From iSimmer - RESULT: Yummy! just a little bit spicy.
Chicken & Brussel Sprout Tacos - This started out being a different recipe but due to some moldy greens Matt had to improvise. - RESULT: This could have gone either way but it was super good!
Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup - My own recipe & back again this week on Matt's request.
