Weekend Cooking

I realized this week that we have been slowly dwindling our freezer supply of meals. Usually we have tons of meals in there that I can grab out for lunches or suppers if we are in a hurry. Between me being super busy with work until recently coupled with us eating out more than we should….

So in order to remedy that had a fairly full weekend making all of these yummy things to restock.

Black Bean Soup:  I found this recipe online at Epicurious but modified it a bit.  We added red lentils to it and extra tomatoes. It is delicious and almost taste like you are eating refried beans.

Slow Cooker Lamb, Mushroom and Barley Risotto.  This one was in one of the Clean Eating Magazines that I get in the mail.

Cornbread: I originally saw this message over on Leigh's blog and decided to try them. I added cheese and made them into muffins instead.

Cosmic Cookies: Planet Organic sells these and I LOVE them however they are expensive so we usually just get one as a treat. When we were in there on the weekend I saw they were selling the mix to make them at home. They turned out just as good and I could control the size.

Homemade Protein Bars: When I was working with a trainer at the gym she gave me this recipe to try and I love it.  I love that you can mix and match to put pretty much anything you want in it.  The recipe does call for a tiny bit of condensed milk but I am going to try replacing it with honey to make it a bit healthier.  They freeze really well to which is an added bonus. Friends of ours are expecting a baby soon so I might make an extra batch to take to them as well.

Cinnamon Buns: I have wanted to try these ever since @TrulyJo posted them on twitter.

Supper Sunday night was  this Asparagus Leek Risotto Recipe that I found over at Gluten_Free Godess's.  This is a favourite of ours. It is so easy to make.  I usually add spinach to it to up the veggie intake a bit.
