What a yummy week I have for you. Variety and flavors and textures. We eat with our eyes so I try to be aware of pretty food too! Let’s dig right in!
I love pizza and even though I’m watching my weight I still like to indulge. I’m swapping out the ground beef for ground skinless ground turkey. That will shed about 5 points and I’ll add caramelized onions and mushrooms. YUM! Thanks, Kitchme!
Nani’s Sauteed Chicken is a family favorite. I’ll eat a thigh or two but forego the fabulous sauce. Okay, maybe just a TBS but I’m counting it!
WEDNESDAY- INSTAPOT SOUP DAY
My kids rave about an InstaPot. Actually, I wasn’t impressed and gave mine to my daughter. They love theirs so much I bit the bullet and got another one. I read all the review and chose the one a the bottom of this post. So far, I really love it! It sure makes dinner easy! This is such a delicious looking recipe from Simply Happy Foodie.

I think a beef tenderloin is the best kept yummy secret. It tastes like filet mignon but is so reasonably priced. And it will come out perfect every time if you have a meat thermometer!
I usually find a tenderloin just a little over a pound. That feeds Bobby and me with leftovers for lunch.
Just think about having restaurant quality
I’m amending this recipe just a tad. I cook my roast at 350. Lower over means juicier roast. I use push an oven-safe meat thermometer into the fattest end of the tenderloin and make sure it is embedded into the middle of the roast and let it roast until it is medium rare- about 135 degrees.
The secret to a very juicy roast is to LET IT SIT! 10-15 minutes. This gives meat a chance for all the delicious juices and goodness to reabsorb back into the meat and it does not end up on your cutting board!
As you can see I really love this cut of meat. Give it a try!
Just because I’m counting points does not mean that we can’t enjoy a bit of pasta. This recipe looks so so yummy! And I’m using my Instapot again!

- WINTER ITALIAN CHOPPED SALAD
We love crab cakes. And I’m always looking for recipes that have very little filler! This one is perfect! YUM! They are so easy to put together and quick to
TREAT OF THE WEEK
This is my kind of goodie. A bit of chocolate and a little crunch! Just enough to tame my sorta sweet tooth. And this recipe is so easy to make!
Have a scrumptious week, friends!
