I’m going to try out something new. A few times a month at the beginning of the week, I’ll post a week’s worth of meal ideas with recipes for the main part of each day’s meal. I haven’t necessarily tried all of these recipes and most of them I have found on Pinterest and have pinned them here, but I’d like to try them…someday soon! So, if any of you try these out, let me know how they are!

- Divide cooked chicken evenly between 8 tortillas; add 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese to each tortilla.
- Roll enchiladas and place seam-side down in 9×13″ baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with no-stick cooking spray.
- Melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in flour to make a roux; stir and cook until bubbly; gradually whisk in chicken broth then bring to boiling, stirring frequently.
- Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and green chiles; pour sauce evenly over enchiladas.
- Top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese (baking dish may be double-wrapped and frozen at this point) and bake at 400Ã‚Â° for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce near edges of baking dish is bubbly.

- cooking spray
- 1/2 tsp each of dried oregano and dries basil
- kosher salt and fresh pepper
- 8 oz spaghetti
- 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
- 6 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped

- Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
- Season chicken generously with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Heat a large skillet on high heat. When hot, spray with oil and add chicken. Cook about 3-4 minutes, until no longer pink. Remove chicken and set aside.
- Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Reserve about 1/2 cup pasta water before draining.
- While pasta cooks, add olive oil to skillet on high heat. Add garlic and sauté until golden brown (do not burn). Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium-low. Sauté about 4-5 minutes. When pasta is drained, add pasta to tomatoes and toss well. If pasta seems too dry, add some of the reserved pasta water. Add fresh basil and chicken and toss well.

- 5 pounds russet potatoes, washed but NOT peeled. Diced into 1/2 inch(ish) cubes
