At top: Lasagna Soup recipe from A Farm Girl’s Dabbles
We’re loving this Carne Asada recipe at Mexico in my Kitchen that Liz included in her roundup of food blogs to be following for Hispanic Heritage Month. The meat just equires grilling, so spend a few minutes prepping your toppings and you’re done. So easy.
If it’s starting to feel like fall where you are (yassss), then this Lasagna Soup at A Farm Girl’s Dabbles is a must. We shared it a while back in a post on healthy comfort foods, and it’s still one of my family favorites. Warm up a baguette to go with it and you’ve got a comfort-food keeper to add to your own weekly meal plan.
The Seasoned Mom had me at “4 ingredients and 5 minutes to prep” with this baked pork chops recipe. Of course, it will take a little longer than 5 minutes to bake, but this is about as easy as it gets for weeknight comfort food.
One of my family’s favorite dinners — especially in fall — is this rainbow vegetable sheet pan idea over at Dinner, then Dessert. You can even take your kids through the produce section with you and let them pick their favorite veggies for each color. Serve with some grilled chicken, fish, or even just add some sliced tempeh to the sheet pan to replace or accompany the yellow veggie.
Home cooks, start your Instant Pots for this super-easy Chicken Shwarma wrap recipe at Cosette’s Kitchen. My kids love that they get to assemble their own sandwiches, picking only the toppings they really want to eat. And, of course, leaving some — like those cucumber slices — on the side rather than in their wrap. Because there is no rhyme or reason to which foods “can’t touch” when it comes to kids.
