107. holiday tortellini soup

Recipe source: Taste of Home

Mmmmm … This is a delicious soup recipe, and it’s super easy to throw together. I made this last year on Christmas Eve, and BP requested it again.

It tastes wonderful on a cold December evening. With pasta, cheese, tomatoes and bacon, you really can’t go wrong.

59. spinach and feta pita bake

We love these quick little pizzas.

They are quick, easy and healthy. Even BP’s 15-year-old nephew loves these.

BP and I were extra excited to make these for lunch today because we were using spinach from our very own garden. (Yes, this is the first time we’ve grown a garden at our house!)

On the down side, I did forgo the feta on my serving. There are a lot of “warning foods” for pregnant ladies, and feta is one of them. I’m not so sure I completely agree with the warnings, but I’d rather play it safe. So, BP got double feta on his, and he was more than happy about it!

BP and I were split right down the middle on this recipe. I really liked it. He told me he’d rather have eaten a peanut butter sandwich.

Ah, well. You win some, you lose some, right?

This recipe marks a couple of firsts for me: rice vinegar and sesame oil. I’d never cooked with either, but I was happy with the results.

3. saucy italian orzo

This went together really quickly, and I had minimal dishes to wash. Double yay.

I enjoyed this slightly more than BP did, but I generally enjoy all foods Italian more than he does (give me tomoatoes, garlic and basil any day!). However, BP added red pepper flakes to his second helping (see, he liked it well enough that he went back for more), and he thought it added the extra flavor it needed.
