Menu of the Week

Menu of the Week

Man oh man ya'll I have been in a cooking mood! This week has been special for Jake and I in regards that our 4 year anniversary was yesterday and tomorrow is Valentines Day. I thought I would try out some new recipes as well as some old favorites I have posted on the blog!


Skinnytaste Spaghetti Squash Primavera. 

Yum. And satisfying!


Cauliflower Soup

This recipe, O My Goodness Gracious. It tasted like potato soup but without the guilt. For only 80 calories for almost 2 cups, I served it with some freshly made sourdough bread. YUM. This is definitely going down in the favorites book.

Also made some Weight Watcher Brownies on Monday. You can go back and see how to make those here.


Skinnytaste Spaghetti Squash Cheesy Bake.

I honestly have left each night after dinner this week feeling satisfied and completely happy with the meal and how it turned out. I served this squash bake with some grilled chicken.

We woke up early that morning and worked on our dinner preparations together :)
I made Skinnytaste's Cheesy Zucchini Enchiladas with Cuban Style Back Beans and brown rice.

Camping with my little family!!! Chili with Hot Dogs

Saturday morning for breakfast I have made ahead some Skinnytaste Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread muffins. I originally made 4 loafs for some friends of mine for Valentines Day and it made so much I had enough left over for 5 HUGE muffins!

Here is the recipe for the bread.
I did make a couple of alterations to make it a bit healthier. I substituted coconut oil for 1:1 ratio with the butter and used dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. I would have used all whole wheat but I did not want to dry the bread out too much since I was using apple sauce and other subs. It is so good! I am so excited for my friends to now try it!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their week so far! Here's to more good cookin'.
