Sometimes you’re just over the entire day, and all you really want to do is go home and indulge; am I right? I’ve been getting that feeling a lot lately. I’ve also been eating a lot of pasta lately, too! So, Lasagna isn’t really one of my go-tos… not really a favorite of mine. But this creamy lasagna soup seriously hit it out of the ball park! I don’t think I’ll ever make layered lasagna ever again. But really…
This weekend took a toll on my body – from food to festivities! Yeah… pizza, jalapeño poppers, hash browns, and ice cream – among many others! That said, I truly had a lazy Sunday filled with a lot of lounging around and cooking up a nice blend of flavors in the kitchen. But instead of slaving away all day, I went with one of my favorite Sunday bites: soup.
To say that the past couple weeks have been hectic is an absolute understatement! My boyfriend and I are officially settled into our new place and I couldn’t be happier with it. I also now have my own personal nook – perfect for work, blogging and you know, all that good stuff. Let me tell you, I’m so ecstatic to be back in the kitchen cooking some healthy, hearty meals rather than opting for the takeout menu… which we have been doing lately. It’s taken some time to get back on routine but this weekend definitely pulled it all together.
This past week definitely gave us a preview of what’s to come for the fall. I hunkered in my cozy sweaters and broke out the leg warmers this weekend. So, some of you (maybe not most of you) may know that I’m moving in less than a week! That said, my boyfriend and I have been trying to minimize the amount of groceries we’re buying so we don’t have to transfer over much food… because I prefer not to. I’ve been getting creative with not only dinners, but lunches too! The past two weeks we’ve have soup for lunch because I’ve been making huge batches on Sunday to last us through the week.
Stuffed peppers have always been one of my favorites – a little rice, sausage, spice, and a whole lot of flavor! Such a well-balanced meal. If it wasn’t already tasty as ever, can you imagine it undone and say, in a bowl? Yeah, yeah, yeah – this is what dreams are made of. I’ve had quite the taste for stuffed peppers lately and satisfied my craving in a delightful way: soup.
