Meal Planning Success/ Weekend Update 10/13/13

Good News…. Last weeks meal planning was a success. I made the Chopped Autumn Salad last Sunday evening. It was a huge hit.


Then Monday I made the Ginger Infused Honey Chicken with shredded carrots and brown rice. It was so good I never got a photo.

Then Tuesday I made the Chicken and Gnocchi Soup…. which was amazing!!!!


Wednesday was was Pumpkin Scones. These were only ok…. they turned out pretty dry. They most likely were dry because my oven cooks super fast so I think they over cooked.


Now thursday stole the show….. I made Katie’s  Quesadilla Casserole. Oh My Gosh this was so good!!!! Scott ate almost half the pan in one day. I did tweak the recipe a little to add some extra veggies in that I had.

First I chopped up half an onion and half a red pepper. I put them in a pan on medium heat with olive oil.


Once the onion and pepper were cooked through I added 1lb. of ground beef and 1tbsp on minced garlic. Cook until the ground beef is done. Then I chopped a massive handful of spinach.


I added it to the beef and veggie mixture and cooked it for a minute.


Once the spinach was cooked down I added 1 can of corn, enchilada sauce and tomato sauce.


I also added some oregano, cumin and chili powder. About a tbsp each.


Let it all boil together for a few minutes. In the mean time pre heat the oven to 350.

Now it is time to assemble. Using a 9 by 13 baking pan first spray with cooking spray. Then cover the bottom with some of the beef, veggie and sauce mixture.


Then layer with 3 tortillas. I split them in half.

Cover the tortillas with more beef, veggies and sauce mixture. Then add LOTS of cheese. Enough to cover the sauce and start over. Cover with the last three tortillas then the last of the sauce and cheese.


I used a total of 3 cups of cheese…. I figure I used low carb tortillas and added veggies so I could use extra cheese 🙂 I LOVE cheese!!!!!

Anyways…. now put the casserole into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, Until the cheese on top is melted and slightly browned.


I enjoyed my casserole with medium taco sauce and sour cream.


This was so delicious!!!!! Both Scott and I really loved it…. I will be making it again!

Friday was more leftovers…. On Friday I went to Yoga Sculpt at CorePower Yoga. OMG it was soooo intense! I really enjoyed it! I will definitely be going to it again.

Then for the rest of the weekend I worked and studied. Not so fun weekend…. but it went by so fast I didn’t even plan meals for this week…. Good news is I have lots of leftovers still.

How was your weekend?

Don’t forget to treat yourself!! Another treat yourself tuesday tomorrow!
