Sage Pesto

I’m in love with fall produce; squash, pumpkin, sage, sweet potatoes, and the list goes on and on. One of my very favorites is sage, which I made into a super yummy Sage Pesto.

Like any true pesto this is so easy and all of the ingredients are interchangeable to what suits your needs. Pesto is a healthy way to get extra veggies and nutrients and packs a flavorful punch.

Also, the possibilities are endless for the application of this pesto. You could put it on a salad, pasta or even in soup. I’ve got another recipe coming your way with this pesto soon!

This pesto is a little special because it’s made with sage and blue cheese. The cheese gives it a nice tang and the sage gives it a deep comfort food-like flavor.

This is my 20th Meal Plan Post! I hope you have been enjoying these posts and a peek into my weekly life.

Sunday – Kung Pao Chicken – If you’ve been following my meal plans for some time, you’ll know that this dish has been on repeat lately. Again, super easy, and delicious! (Things came up last week, so this got bumped up to the menu this week)

Monday – Family Dinner

Tuesday – Leek and Potato Soup with Pumpkin Cornbread – This is a creamy, dreamy potato soup with leeks and pumpkin cornbread is the perfect fall pairing.

Wednesday – Chicken Fingers, Sweet Potato Fries and Green Beans – This is what I call my kid meal. I love Applegate gluten free chicken fingers. They remind me of childhood, but I don’t have to feel too bad about eating them.

Thursday – Sweet Potato Noodles with Sage Pesto and Brown Butter – I’ll share this delicious recipe soon!

Friday – Chicken Broccoli Braid – Don’t mind these horrible pictures, this dish is packed with flavor and is 100% comfort food. Use crescent rolls for and easy non-gluten free option, or whip up this easy crust.

SaturdayTurkey Taco Chili Mac – This is a delicious fusion of chili and mac and cheese. It’s loaded with vegetables, protein and fiber from the beans. This is another quintessential fall dish.

Gouda Cheese Chips

Who is ready for some football? These Gouda Cheese Chips are the perfect pairing for any football game, whether you’re there for the sports or just the snacks 🙂

Gouda Cheese Chips | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

These chips are special because they are sweet potato chips. I love the sweetness that the chips provide against the tang of the luscious cheese sauce. I used some chips I picked up at the store, but if you’re feeling really ambitious you could make some homemade chips. Either way, these chips will get gobbled up super fast!

This gouda sauce is the perfect complement to the bacon and sweet potato chips. The sauce is gluten free and dairy free and you would never know it! You can’t go wrong with sweet potato chips covered in cheese and bacon.
