Eats This Week

Hubs and I have been super into trying new (mostly) healthy recipes lately and we've been having so much fun with it.
One of my favorite things to do with hubs is to cook. 
We joke around in the kitchen, shout out orders to each other,  are constantly talking and laughing and bickering.
It's something I hope we do always and that I hope our kids one day enjoy doing with us.
That said, here are some tasty things we made this week!

This soup from 365 Days of Slow Cooking is DELICIOUS.  Seriously, one of my new favorite soups ever.
It's not low fat by any means, but you could make some simple substitutions to get the calories down.
Hubs loves crock pot meals more than anything because it's easy and he loves the smell of something cooking all day; puts him in a great mood.
Only thing with this recipe, is it leaves out blending the soup.  We used our immersion blender to get it nice and smooth which is the texture we like our soups to be.

These low calorie cupcakes from Skinny Taste have become a huge hit with my family and coworkers.
We made these for my mom's birthday last month and then I made them again for a coworker's birthday who is trying to watch her weight.
For having basically nothing in them, they are delicious and satisfying. 
Pumpkin...who knew?!  

Oven crisp black bean and corn flautas from Vegetarian Times.
These were so so so tasty.  I added cheese because, hi, it's what I do.
So good, you have no idea.
We ate them with this:

This is literally guacamole made with broccoli, which sounds weird, but it's delish!!
