Hamburger Soup

Sometimes you just feel like a bowl of soup! Especially, when its chilly out. So, I made an easy hearty hamburger soup and allowed it to cook on low for 8 hours in my crock pot and it was mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good! The simple things in life are sometimes more pleasing then the extravagant. At least that’s how I felt while eating my bowl of soup. Nothing fancy here with this recipe but yummy veggies, extra lean beaf, and whole wheat elbow macaroni. 🙂
1 1/2 of Extra Lean Beef (97% lean and 4% fat is what I used)
1 Can of Diced Garlic Tomatoes (undrained)
1 Cup of Diced Potatoes
4 Stalks of Celery
1 Jalapeno Diced
1 Chopped Onion (I used sweet onion)
1 Can of Corn (drained)
1 Can of Green Beans (drained)
1 squash sliced
1/2 Cup of Shredded Carrots
1/2 Cup of Diced Mushrooms
1/4 Tsp of Pepper
1 Tsp of Garlic Powder
1 Tsp of Onion Powder
1 Tsp of Dried Basil
1 Tsp of Paprika
Beef Bouillon Cubes
Low Sodium Chicken Stock
1 Pack of Lipton Onion Soup
Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni
Brown your beef. In crock pot add 2 cups of water and 3 cups of chicken stock. Add packet of lipton onion soup and 4 beef bouillon cubes. Pour in tomatoes, green beans, and corn. Add the remaining veggies and spices (you can add more spice to liking). Allow to cook for the next 6 to 8 hours or you can cook on high for half the time. The last hour add your macaroni noodles and ENJOY!

Breakfast Tortilla

Breakfast Tortilla!
Felt like spicing things up this morning for breakfast and made my version of a breakfast burrito into a tortilla.
Yellow Bell Pepper (you can use any color)
Egg Whites
I diced and cooked the potatoes for few minutes in pan with a little olive oil. Add diced bell pepper, mushrooms, and onions cook for a few minutes. My quantities are thrown in to liking and tasting, no true measuring going on. Add shredded chicken (I used some left over rotisserie chicken). I put all cooked ingredients to the side and scrambled my egg whites. After, scrambled throw the cooked ingredients back into the same pan. Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute. Fill with mixture, drizzle with mexican cheese, and green mild salsa. Disfrutar!

Baked Turkey Meatball Zucchini Pasta

Oh My! When I tell you that this dish is AHHHHHH-MAZING, it’s an understatement when describing just how good it is! I can not put into words or express enough how delicious it is and let’s not forget healthy! Healthy doesn’t have to mean boring!
First, I made my baked turkey meatballs by doing the following…Mix Ingredients below in food processor
Olive Oil
1/2 Onion
1/2 Shallot
Small pkg of Mushrooms
1 Clove of Garlic
1/4 cup of Parsley
2 tbsp of Feta Cheese (sun dried tomato & basil)
1 tsp of Salt & Pepper
Grind really well in food processor. Then in bowl mix ground turkey, 1/2 cup of italian bread crumbs, 1 egg, 1 tbsp of tomato paste, and the mixed ingredients from the food processor. Make into balls and bake @ 400 degrees for 20min.
To make the zucchini pasta just take a potato peeler and slice down the zucchini into thin ribbons. Saute in a pan on stove top with 1 tablespoon of olive oil for 3 minutes or until translucent. Salt & pepper to taste and drizzle with marinara. Please if there is anything that you make or try from this blog, this should be the DISH! It’s seriously AHHHHHHH-MAZING! 😉

Waldorf Chicken Salad

Yum! Waldorf Chicken Salad makes for a great lunch! It may seem time consuming chopping all the ingredients but well worth your time. Everyone seems to have their own twist on making their version of a Waldorf Salad, so do whatever floats your boat! 🙂 I enjoy the taste of the chicken with the sweet & tart fruit and the texture (crunch) of the celery & water chestnuts so I personally like to make mine as follows:
Rotisserie Chicken (shortcut buy the supermarket rotisserie)
Red seedless grapes
Granny Smith apple
Water Chestnuts
Mayonnaise (or substitute greek yogurt)
Salt & Pepper
Chop chicken and place in bowl. Rinse & cut grapes in halves. Dice granny smith apple. Chop celery. Dice Onion. Slice water chestnuts. Toast walnuts. Toss in bowl with 1/4 cup of mayonnaise (I only added 1/4 cup because I don’t want to drown in mayo but yogurt is a healthier route). Salt & Pepper to taste. LOVE IT! You can serve in lettuce cups, with bagel chips, as a sandwich, etc …I’ve even seen people make quesadillas with it?! Hmmmm…you never know could be good!
