Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Will definitely make this again. Used a rotisserie chicken to save time. Took out roughly chopped potatoes and used immersion blender to cream them together with coconut milk in a bowl. Adjusted cook time–it took quite a bit longer to cook the diced  carrots and potatoes than listed (and celery).

Vietnamese Chicken & Cabbage Salad. Will boil the chicken instead of grilling (bring to a simmer on high heat, then reduce heat to low and cover until done…about 12 mins). Still put it in an ice bath before shredding. Sub olive oil for avocado oil. Used a red jalapeno for the hot chili pepper.

Leftovers because Monday and Tuesday meals both made a ton


Chicken Enchilada Casserole. Decided to make this instead of roasted chicken and broccoli because it sounded better that night. Easy to make. Skipped avocado. Flavors get better next day.

Easy Butter Poached Sous Vide Lobster Tails with Roasted Broccoli (cut broccoli into florets & tossed with olive oil, garlic powder & drizzle of balsamic vinegar; roasted at 375 for 20 mins). Fun experiment with sous vide. Lobster meat was clean and decadent.
