Menu Planning Monday

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend!

As I look ahead to our week, I realize how busy it is and how challenging it will be cook healthy meals around our schedules. We'll be eating out at least one night, and I'm trying to keep things simple by using things I already have in the house. We have a container of leftover tomato basil soup from 2 weeks ago that kept well in the freezer, so you'll see that on the menu again. We have some shrimp I'd like to use up, and I'm trying a Moroccan recipe for the first time, the chicken tagine. I have had the white chicken chili at The Cheesecake Factory the last two times I've been there, so I'm going to try the recipe below to see if it holds a candle.

I'm a fan of Cooking Light recipes, and I recently discovered a section on their recipe website that features 5-ingredient recipes. Check out the "5-Ingredient Cookbook: Fresh Food Fast" sometime!
