When the meet is tender, I add in potatoes, onions and carrots and both my boys love it. It's a great meal to get the boys to eat veggies. I serve this stew with a slices of warm Italian or French Bread. This week I use Chef in Trainings recipe for my French loafs.
The Sausage & Pepper pasta is a family favourite here. Two years ago, we were at a friends house for dinner and she served this to us. We loved it and I became a little obsessed with it. I pretty much went right home and started to craft my version of it for my family. Since then, I have been making it at least once a month and my boys (all 3 of them) devour it. It is creamy and savory and very fulfilling. Don't worry, if you want the recipe, which you will, I am giving my version of it on Tuesday so stay tuned!
The Chicken Chili is also one of my favouite recipes that I have come up with over the years. I love the flavour of chili and I love dunking tortillas in my bowl. I make a slightly healthier version of chili by using ground chicken instead of ground beef. I let it simmer all afternoon and by suppertime our house is filled with the smell of chili. I serve it with tortillas, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and guacamole.
It's very similar to chicken noodle soup. It's just a wee bit thicker and it is jam packed full of flavour. The original recipe is amazing but sometimes when my family is sick, like this week, I add a splash of lemon and ginger in it just to help heal our colds. I swear it works.
So that is what we are eating this week! What are your favourite comfort foods?
