Cold and wet here in the Northwest but I’m enjoying the food that goes with it…

 –BBQ Pork Quesadillas- Flour tortillas filled with pulled pork, cheddar cheese and BBQ Sauce. Cook until crispy on both sides.  Once cooked fill with coleslaw and cut in wedges. Yum! Serving w/ Sweet potato fries.

Run Down: I think I might have created this recipe! About a year ago we had way too much pulled pork in our fridge and tried it in a cheese quessadilla stuffed with cool crisp coleslaw.  Kaleb and I both thought is one of the best things. Now I make pulled pork just so we can have these quesadillas.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf- http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/brown-sugar-meatloaf/detail.aspx (I use turkey instead of beef and reduce the b. sugar to a couple a tablespoons)w/Twice Baked Cauliflower-http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2006/09/twice-baked-cauliflower-recipe.html.

Run Down: I always thought I didn’t really like meatloaf until I found this recipe. It is super easy and tastes so good in a comforting type of way.  Paired with the Twice Baked Cauliflower it makes a perfect meal that is good enough to serve to company.

Southwestern Chicken Soup- 12oz jar salsa verde, 2 chicken breasts, can cannellini beans (drained), chopped onion, chopped green pepper, any other veggies you want. Put everything in the crock pot and cook for 6-8 hours on low.  Shred chicken.  Serve with Sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips, green onion, cilantro and lime. 

Run Down: I have been making this soup for 7 years (since our first year of marriage) and it still one of our favorite soups.  It is so easy.  Don’t forget the toppings though, they really do make the soup.

Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal (breakfast for the week)-http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/2011/09/baked-pumpkin-pie-oatmeal-277-recipe.html

Run Down: Wow!  This was so good.  I loved how it is full of good for you pumpkin and oatmeal and tastes soooooo good.
