Real Food Round-Up – Baked Potatoes

Slow cooker chicken with beans and salsa

Every week I share a round-up of my dinners from the previous week – both the good and the bad!

This week I was back at home after being away and so was able to cook some of my favourite meals, like chicken soup and baked potatoes. I also experimented with a new chicken recipe and was very happy with it. 

Simple chicken soup

Monday – I got home after spending a week and a half away from home and was craving simple food. Since I didn’t have a lot of food in the house, I whipped up some chicken soup with some onions, and some chicken wings and celery I had in the freezer.

Baked potato with bacon

Tuesday – A baked potato topped with cheese, mustard and bacon, with some salad.

Wednesday  – Slow cooked chicken with adzuki beans and salsa (above; based on this recipe from The Rising Spoon). I substituted a few ingredients based on what I had in the house, but the recipe still turned out great. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

Bacon and blue cheese pizza

Thursday – Pizza out with friends – I had a gluten free one with bacon, tomato and blue cheese.

BBQ veggies and sausages

Friday – A friend had a barbeque and had heaps of delicious food: sausages, chicken skewers and veggies.

Saturday – Pretty much the same meal as Tuesday night – I love my baked potatoes!

Leftover pulled chicken

Sunday – Leftover chicken from Wednesday night topped with cheese and avocado.

  1. I’m going to pass the crock pot chicken salsa recipe onto my son. He is always looking for something inexpensive to do in his crock pot.

    • I’d never made crock pot salsa chicken before, but I am a fan of it now 🙂 Such an easy way to make a bulk lot of food. I hope he enjoys it 🙂

  2. These posts always make me hungry. It’s basically all zucchini all the time around here at the moment! 🙂

  3. Hey Liz and thanks for sharing your weekly eats 🙂

    All of the food looks amazing, especially that pizza!!!

    I think I’ll also borrow your recipe of the slow cooked chicken with adzuki beans and salsa. It looks simply yummy!!

    Thanks again and take care.
