Catching Up

Sooo….I’ve totally been MIA for a LONG time.  Must have been that whole end of pregnancy, birth of my daughter, and general non-motivation to come up with inventive meal plans.  Plus, we had company for two weeks after my daughter was born.  But, I’m baack!  I thought I’d share some recipes that I have made that we have loved over here.

Here’s a few we made in the past week:

  • We made these last night and they were so satisfying.  Bonus points if you make your own enchilada sauce (psst…it’s so easy and it’s nice knowing exactly what is going into the sauce).  Clean Eating Slow Cooker Enchiladas

  • Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry and Quinoa Salad was the perfect make ahead for lunches for the week.  Can add chicken for extra protein, but I just ate it as is.  I may have added feta to it too.  So delicious, and holds up for a few days thanks to the hearty brussels sprouts.

  • Slow Cooker Fajitas were also made because nothing is easier than minimal prep and letting the crock pot do all the work.  Do yourself a favor and make these.  So easy and so tasty.  Also make your own fajita seasoning to control that sodium intake.  We used chicken, and can’t wait to try them with steak later.

Other than these, we’ve been living on our go to easy recipes (roasted veggies with sausage, easy soups made in the Instant Pot, etc) as well as the freezer meals that I prepped knowing that I would have no motivation/energy to cook with a newborn.

Let me know what you’ve been making lately!
