In the kitchen I have one simple rule, an egg makes anything instantly better. I’ve always been a fan of each of the ingredients in this dish individually, so a meal where I can eat spinach, sausage, a fried egg all for under 300 calories, sign me up! I made this delightful salad for dinner after a long dreary Monday, but I think it would making a refreshing Sunday Brunch option, perhaps paired with a bellini or mimosa? The possibilities are endless!
I think the fact that I didn’t get a final picture of my pulled pork sandwich speaks volumes for just how good this recipe is! As I woke up and got dressed this morning I could hear the pitter patter of rain drops outside. So of course, I couldn’t think of a better day to try this delicious crock pot recipe while I trudged off to work. What better prize is there to a long rainy day then a nice warm meal waiting for you when you get home?
[Edit: I was able to recreate the photo op with some delicious leftovers! I warmed them up in the oven and they were just as good as yesterday!]
It’s certainly funny how one day you can’t imagine cooking and the next day you are collecting recipes like the world is going to end tomorrow. Yesterday, I had absolutely no desire to find a recipe to attempt this week, but as soon as I pinned this Turkey Burger recipe, I knew I had broken the curse! Not only is this a delicious and fresh take on a burger, but healthy too- my entire dinner only came in at 346 calories!
To make sure I stay committed to my new year’s resolution I also established a monthly “family” dinner with my close friends from college- pot luck style to make sure everyone brings something! This month the theme was Mexican, so I decided to dust off my crock pot and get festive! The result was a set and forget recipe that was out of this world. I even had a carnitas salad the next day for lunch at work- delish even cold!
Every week I try to plan out my menu in advance. That way I know what I need to buy at the grocery store and I know which days I need to cook and which days I can just eat leftovers. For whatever reason, I just wasn’t craving my planned Chinese Chicken Salad, maybe it was the fact that I ran a 5k at the gym and wanted something a little more substantial. Regardless, as a result this garlic chicken pasta recipe was born!
