Creamy Spinach and Cheese Green Chile Enchiladas

Lent is here, which means for me and the other Catholic's we are not able to eat meat on Friday's. I'm not going to lie, I'm sick of eating the same Lent food at my house. Tuna Salad, Tuna Casserole, Mac and Cheese. So I went searching for a new recipe. I found these enchiladas & you better believe these will be made outside of lent, they were so delicious!

Italian Meatball Soup

I love to meal prep on the weekends for the upcoming week. After working 10 hour days, I don't want to come home and figure out what I'm going to make for lunch the next day. So on Sunday, I spend most of the day meal prepping.
   This week, I made Italian Meatball Soup, this soup was simple that I will definitely be making this over and over again.

Ingredients: 
   My family and I have a secret Meatball recipe that we don't give out. I made those meatballs for my recipe, but I will give the meatball recipe the original recipe calls for.

Sheet Pan Eggs for Breakfast Sandwiches

If you are like me, I hate mornings. I don't have time to make breakfast for myself. So I usually buy breakfast or make breakfast and freeze it to grab and go.

I had some Pillsbury Biscuits that I were about to expire, so I actually decided to bake those and make breakfast sandwiches to freeze and instead of making individual eggs for each sandwich on the stove. I found this great recipe for sheet pan eggs. Let me tell you, when I make bulk breakfast sandwiches, I will also use this recipe. It is so easy to make and you get plenty of sandwiches on it.

There will be 2 recipes...Sheet Pan Eggs and Breakfast Sandwiches.

OLIVE GARDEN COPYCAT ZUPPA TOSCANA

I love Zuppa Toscana, it by far my favorite soup that Olive Garden makes. So I searched and searched for a recipe. The one thing, that I don't like in the soup is the potatoes, so I substitute the potatoes for Cauliflower. It is just as delicious, you definitely don't miss the potatoes. Of course, you like potatoes, please add them. Adding the Cauliflower also makes the soup just a little more healthier.

Here is the recipe below:
