Butternut Squash SoupHint: I substituted 2 bags of frozen butternut squash cubes for the fresh squash.


Grilled Shrimp & White Beans with Herbs de Provence over Spring Mix Salad

This one I put together myself.  I used shrimp I had in the freezer and, after thawing, sprinkled a generous amount of Herbs de Provence on it.  I cooked it on the stove in a bit of olive oil and tossed in the a can of white beans for the last few minutes.  Using the beans can help the shrimp go further.  I put the shrimp and beans over a spring salad mix tossed with a just a bit of light italian dressing. Trust me, it’s as good as it looks!

Easy White Chilli

This recipe is a absolutely delicious! The leftovers were gone in a flash as the kids fought over who got to take them to school the next day. Made with five cans of great Northern beans and only 4 chicken breast halves, it is super-easy on the budget!
