Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras! Both kids ran out of school wearing beads and Isla refused to take this mask off while we shopped for groceries. Every time someone at Kroger smiled at her, she yelled, “STOP LAUGHING AT ME!”

Good times.

So tonight’s dinner was awesome but time consuming: paleo chicken pot pie soup. This would be a great recipe for a lazy Sunday afternoon- lots of chopping and simmering. I actually enjoy recipes like that, but maybe not at 6:30 on a Tuesday night when I’ve been cooking for an hour and a half?


(Not pictured: chicken breasts that I cooked in the Instant Pot on Sunday and shredded.)

The soup is REALLY good, thick, creamy and super filling. The creaminess comes from a cooked potato-coconut milk puree that is stirred into the soup. Also love all of the fresh herbs and veggies.

UGH this lighting.

With salad and fresh bread:

I’m STUFFED, but it was so good! Lots leftover, too- and I bet it’s better the second day.

I am so beat. This morning’s workout was super intense (so. many. burpees.) and then I spent the rest of the morning-afternoon cleaning the house. Seeing as there’s no This Is Us tonight, maybe I’ll actually make it to bed at a decent hour! Or maybe I’ll just go eat more king cake…
