Another Week of Eats

Another week of eats! Starting with the groceries:

This week’s haul is a bit on the lighter side because I pulled all the protein from the freezer. Chicken breasts and a bottom round roast of beef. The beef was from a farmer near my parents and the chicken breasts were bought in bulk when they were on sale and stored in the freezer until I needed them.

I made all of these meals on Sunday and ate off of them throughout the week.

Meal #1: Chicken Breasts with Roasted Acorn Squash

Baked on the same baking sheet for easy clean up! No recipe for this one– just oil the baking sheet; season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder; chop acorn squash and season with salt and pepper. Roast on 45 minutes on 375F.

Meal #2: Pesto Brown Rice Pasta with Chicken and Roasted Onion and Fennel

This was so good! Comforting but also light due to the extra veggies and protein. The basil was from the freezer, made fresh when I had a surplus of basil!

Meal #3: Beef and Barley Soup

Fall in a bowl– so hearty and comforting! Another slow cooker meal for the win. I started this in the crockpot on Sunday morning and dug into it on Sunday night after prepping all the rest of the meals. What a reward!
