Hey sweet friends! I am just so overwhelmed with all the encouragement and sources you have shared with the news I now need to be gluten-free! You are right, it is not hard! It’s just a new normal. And if we have the blessing of living long enough we have been through quite a bit of new normal’s! Hungry? Let’s eat well this week…
MONDAY- SOUP DAY
I love the idea of butternut squash soup but really just the “idea” of it until I made this recipe. And tweaked my tweak a bit. Instead of bacon I now use 1/2 the tube of Bob Evan’s sage sausage! I cook the sausage in the dutch oven before I add the apples and chicken broth.
If you only like the idea of butternut squash soup give my tweaked tweak a try! You will probably love it!
And if you want to get a little crazy… add the bacon as a garnish! WHAT? Oh, yes friend!
- DELICIOUS ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP
- SLICED APPLES AND PEARS
This is such a glorious company worthy dish to eat on a weeknight! And to make this a little more WW friendly I’ll use half and half instead of heavy cream. I’ll be using just use 2TBS of sauce over my portion of salmon even though I could literally drink the sauce!
I can’t wait to make this main dish recipe from Christina at Eat Well 101!
- CREAMY GARLIC TUSCAN GARLIC SALMON
- ROASTED PEARS WITH BALSAMIC VINEGAR AND HONEY OVER A BED OF ARUGULA

Nani’s Sauteed Chicken is good any time of year but on a chilly day, it is really at its best! I always feel like I am giving you a gift when I share this recipe.
