When the cold sets in, it's time for soups and stews! See which fantastic recipes made the list this week!

This week's recipes were chosen because of how quick and easy they are.  Each one of them can be brought to the table in about half an hour.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving here at The Pigeon Coop but it’s time to start cooking actual food again.  We made it through almost an entire week on Thanksgiving leftovers and a few quick freezer meals.  Our bellies are happy thanks to the many wonderful family members who cooked for us this year.

With Clay Pigeon going back to work and Lis headed back to school, I’m easing back into the whole dinner game.  These recipes are all very easy and can be thrown together quickly, even when a toddler is hanging onto your pant leg.

Monday

Fettuccini w/Homemade Alfredo Sauce from Cooks.com

This one comes together is about 15 minutes so make sure everyone is cleaned up for dinner when you start cooking!

Quick to throw together, full of flavor, and easy cleanup.  This one takes about 45 minutes from start to finish.

Wednesday

Chicken Ranch Tacos from Do You Smell That!!?

Clay Pigeon loves these ones.  As long as I remember to pull the chicken the night before, this one only takes about 20 minutes total.

Delicious and fast, these chicken ranch tacos are fantastic.

Thursday

Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders from The Pioneer Woman

I make these every year for Clay Pigeon’s birthday dinner.  He loves them and it seriously takes me less than 30 minutes to whip up these beauties.

These whiskey bbq sliders are so quick and easy and really pack a punch!

Friday

Sour Cream Noodle Bake from Aunt Bee’s Recipes

I can have this on the dinner table in under 30 minutes and guys…BOTH GIRLS EAT SECONDS!!!  That’s a win/win in my book!

Sour cream noodle bake is a fast and delicious dinner that everyone loves.

I’m pretty excited about this week’s line up.  I haven’t been feeling all that well thanks to a stubborn cough so 30 minute meals are just the ticket.  Now if I can just remember to pull the meat out the night before, I will be golden!  For whatever reason, forgetting to pull the meat out seems to be my downfall.
