Here’s a few of my favorite dinner ideas and (bonus!) most are quick and easy. Enjoy!
Ditalini Soup- I love this delicious recipe, it makes a bunch and you can customize it however you want. We prefer less spice and no beans but I think next time around I may add in a few more veggies to give it an extra punch!

Mal’s Easy Chili- Courtney’s friend Mal makes an awesome chili that isn’t too spicy or sweet and (again) makes a ton of leftovers. The big bonus is you just throw it in the crockpot and go! (courtesy of Sweet Tooth Sweet Life- http://www.sweettoothsweetlife.com/2011/10/11/mals-easy-chili-recipe/)
BBQ Pulled Chicken- This tasty (and easy!) recipe from Tasty Kitchen is always filling and makes a ton. If you aren’t a pineapple fan feel free to leave them out, we do sometimes and the chicken is still tasty and delicious (courtesy of Tasty Kitchen- http://tastykitchen.com/blog/2011/04/hawaiian-bbq-pulled-chicken-sandwiches/)
BBQ Chicken Pasta- Wondering what to do with the ton of chicken you now have? (Besides make nachos a la Bandana’s, yum) This pasta bake from Jessica is delicious and is easy to throw together the night before so you can just pop it in the oven when you get home. (courtesy of How Sweet It Is- http://www.howsweeteats.com/2010/09/bbq-chicken-pasta-bake/)- PS, how awesome would this be with some French’s Fried Onions on top? I may have to try that next time, they are a Mr. Pie favorite!
Spicy Sausage Pasta- I just made this one on Wednesday and Mr. Pie & I loved it. The only change I made (can you guess?) was to decrease the Rotel to a half can to reduce the heat. This was delicious and super simple! (courtesy of Kevin & Amanda- http://www.kevinandamanda.com/recipes/dinner/spicy-sausage-pasta)
