Cooking with Pinterest.3

Here are my thoughts on the Pinterest recipes I tried last week:

Tuscan Chicken Skillet via The Wanderlust Kitchen

This dish reminded me of Chicken Cacciatore. It was fairly good but I didn't love the flavors, maybe too much oregano and thyme? Jack enjoyed the beans, chicken and mushrooms, though he still isn't a big fan of tomatoes (just like his daddy). If you wanted carbs with this meal, I think it would pair nicely with rice.

BBQ Chicken and Avocado Quessadillas via Inside BruCrew Life

This was a super easy meal to make, which was perfect for mid week. However, Jack wasn't a big fan of it. I think he ate two bites, and his quessadilla didn't even have avocado on it! I think if I made this again, I would take the time to caramelize red onions to go with the chicken. Also, I really should have served it with a side of black beans or some other veggie to make it a bit healthier.

I used Colby-Jack cheese instead of Mozzarella and melted butter in the pan for cooking the quessadillas.

Sausage and Tortellini Soup via Tracey's Culinary Adventures

I don't cook the same meal very often, but I have made a variation of this soup on and off for years. I really love the flavor that the sausage brings and it is really easy to whip up. Jack really likes tortellini, but still won't touch the tomatoes or spinach.

Between the Tuscan Chicken and Tortellini Soup, we had plenty of leftovers this week.
