Good Eats Friday: The Winterlude edition

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food

It’s Friiiiiiday! *jazz hands*

That means it’s time for another instalment of Good Eats Friday. I thought this week it’d be a good idea to post a recipe or two that will give our families some good GET UP ‘N GO. You know, because it’s Winterlude and we all need as much GET UP as we can muster.

Check out this recipe for slow-cooker Chicken Tortilla soup. It has all the flavours I love and it looks very family-friendly. Imagine putting this in ye ‘old crock pot before you leave for a day of skating and wintery fun and coming back to THIS:

Kinda perfect eh?

I’m also eyeballing this recipe for healthy breakfast cookies. It seems like a pretty good snack to pack up and bring with you while you’re skating the Rideau Canal Skateway, don’t you think?

What are you cooking up this weekend? I’d love to hear about it!

looks yummy……..but do you have to cook it on low for 6 hours and then on high for 2 like the recipe says? OR should it say “or” instead of “and”????

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (15) and Sarah (13). I am the editor of the Kitchissippi Times, Capital Parent Newspaper, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
