Now that life will be [slightly] calmer for the next couple of weeks, it's time for me to start planning some meals again! Krew and I will be heading to the store together tonight while Dave is at an NC State soccer alumni event. (If he was going to be playing, which he almost was, I was SO going to be there because, frankly, I find the attribute "soccer player" to be super duper attractive. But only when it applies to my hubby anymore, of course. :) But, alas, he's not playing, so I decided getting stuff done would be more beneficial.)
So here are my ideas for the coming week:
*Creamy Chicken and Rice (new recipe)
*Tortellini and peas (see below)
*Tuna melt (see below)
And since the second two meals are supposed to be incredibly easy (that's why I like them!) I thought I'd share the recipes:
Tortellini and peas:
Cook one package of frozen cheese tortellini according to the package directions. Meanwhile, place 2 cups frozen baby peas in a colander and drain the cooked tortellini over the peas. Return to saucepan and add a few tablespoons of butter and some Parmesan cheese. Cook and stir until the peas are heated and the cheese is melted.
Toast split English muffins. Combine drained canned tuna with a bit of ranch salad dressing, sour cream, and chopped celery and place on muffins. Top with tomato slices and sliced muenster or Havarti cheese. Broil until cheese melts.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday night and wonderful Sunday!
