Clockwise from top right:
1. Cheesy Turkey Taco Chili Mac from Skinnytaste. This is a one-pot, chili meets pasta meets taco dish. It had great flavor, and the "chili" part was thickened with refried beans, which I thought was interesting. Aaron isn't a big bean-lover but even he liked it.
2. Homemade pizza. Pizza is one of the few things Jona loves right now (big shocker, right?) so we have a lot of pizza nights around here. I rarely take the time to make my own dough, but there was a recipe in my Pioneer Woman cookbook that I wanted to try. (I used the same dough she uses for this recipe.) It was so simple, and so much cheaper than buying refrigerated dough or flatbread. Aaron and Jona both had pepperoni, but I topped mine with pesto, pork, grape tomatoes, and mozzarella.
3. White Queso Chicken and Rice Soup from Iowa Girl Eats. I mentioned earlier this week that I've been on a soup kick lately, and here's another example. This soup was delicious; it was a little spicy, hearty from the chicken and rice, and a little indulgent with the melted cheese. Topped with some crunchy tortilla chips it was salsa and cheese dip all rolled into one. I used red bell pepper instead of green (I just like them better) and salsa instead of Rotel (that's what I already had) and it was fantastic.
What's for dinner for you tonight?
