1. Hey Lola, me too!

Yesterday I got a comment on my blog post titled, Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup with Tortellini from a gal named Lola who was going to make this recipe "tomorrow night". When it came time to make dinner tonight I didn't have much time and had to make something quick. This meal immediately came to mind since I always keep tortellini in the fridge for a quick fix dinner.

2. Organic Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Gaeatno loves pancakes, and I try to make them about every other weekend or so. Unfortunately, pancakes are not exactly healthy, so I set out to make a recipe that was just a little bit healthier than our usual batch by going all organic and including blueberries.

3. Ginger Pineapple Chicken Rice Bowl

I chopped up the chicken and seared it in a little olive oil with some garlic powder. While that cooked, I microwaved some Jasmine rice. Once the chicken was mostly cooked, I poured in some soy sauce and ginger syrup. I cooked that a bit while I rummaged through my pantry for some pineapple chunks.

4. Texican Mac-N-Cheese

I asked my son what he wanted for dinner tonight because I just couldn't decide myself. He asked, "Do we have any macaroni and cheese?" Unfortunately we did not, but I knew I had all the ingredients to whip up my own. I wasn't in the mood for anything average, so I decided to spice things up a bit.

5. Fusilli Col Bucco!

The corkscrew shape of the pasta caught my eye. It reminded me of my curly hair and I thought it looked like a fun noodle to try... and it was!

The noodle is almost solid; it has a tiny little hole through it. In fact, I didn't realize that it wasn't solid until I happened to suck some air through a small piece that tried to escape my mouth. Fusilli Col Bucco is thick, thicker than spaghetti. Cooked, I'd say it's about 3 or 4 uncooked spaghetti noodles in thickness. The density of the pasta means you can go with a smaller pile on your plate and still be fully satisfied.

6. Quick-N-Easy Spicy Black Bean Soup

Tonight's dinner was made with Pacific Natural's Spicy Black Bean Soup, Central Market Organic's Red Quinoa & Flaxseed Tortiall Chips, Mild Pace Picante Sauce, Horizon's Sour Cream, and some sharp cheddar cheese.

The soup was smooth; no whole beans at all. The lack of whole beans came as a surprise to my boys but it was not a complaint. We all loved it! The trick is to not go crazy with the chips, salsa, sour cream and cheese.
