Cheesy Tortellini Crockpot Soup

Cheesy Tortellini Crockpot Soup Ingredients

This recipe Cheesy Tortellini Crockpot Soup caught my eye on Pinterest. The pinner said this was “the BEST crockpot meal I’ve tried yet.”  That was enough to perk my ears up!

Spinach, Tortellini & Grilled Chicken Salad

In the summer, many of our dinners consist of a main salad and bread.  I just use what I have on hand and throw it together, making sure I have some sort of protein, which helps keep us full.  Tonight the protein I used was grilled chicken, but I have also used hard boiled eggs or beans/lentils.  We use whatever dressing we have on hand, or just keep it simple by drizzling it with a good olive oil and some fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Here is what I used tonight, my family loved it.  Another no recipe, recipe.

Spinach, Tortellini, & Grilled Chicken Salad


“Almost Naked” Grilled Chicken



Green Pepper



Mandarin Oranges (I’ve also used Craisins)


My family loved the salad, but see that grilled summer squash in the background?  My youngest cried about eating it, then gagged on it.  Thought you would like to know…:)
