MEAL PLANS WEEK 26

This weekend has been so crisp, sunny days becoming cold nights and I just don’t know why I’m never prepared for this level of winter.

CHICKEN ORECCHIETTE SOUP WITH PARMESAN AND LEMON

I was going to call this chicken noodle soup, because any short thicker style pasta will work. But, I love it with orecchiette the best so let’s give those little ears of pasta a starring role in the recipe name. They deserve it.
