13 Bean Soup with Chorizo (slow-cooker)

13 Bean Soup with Chorizo (Slow-Cooker) - Just the TipMy slow cooker. I’m really starting to love that thing. Especially when it welcomes a pile of raw ingredients and, while I’m at work, turns it into something awesome. Something dinner worthy and that justifies a long-ass Monday. This soup is definitely going to be a stand-by, which is a good thing, because this makes a BIG batch. I plan on banking the remaining 8 servings in the freezer for a couple more effortless meals. Win win.

But, for now, temps in the 80s and 90s are where we’re at and this dish is perfect for a hot summer night.

Spaghetti Squash Chicken Pad Thai

Spaghetti Squash Chicken Pad Thai - Just the TipUm, this dish is amazing. I’m so excited about it that I  feel like that’s all I can say…but I’ll try to expound a little. Roasted and shredded spaghetti squash perfectly imitates those mushy pad thai noodles. The sauce is perfection and made from ingredients that are probably in your cabinet. This is such a healthy and hearty dish because of the sheer mass of vegetables. New favorite dinner, hands down.
