This first week of April has shaped up to be a pretty good one over here! The sun has been shining. I paraded around in flip flops for most of the week. A nice lady gave me her cart at the grocery store, and when I tried to give her my quarter (I was at Aldi, in case this sounds confusing) she said to pay it forward. It’s definitely the little things. Also — I found like 3456787654 amazing recipes!!! So to get your dinner ideas rolling, here are my favorite seven.
Zesty Sriracha Shrimp & Quinoa via Julie’s Eats and Treats – Um… this meal is a total drool-fest for me. I’ve really been into the shrimp vibe lately and this one, all glaze-ey with SRIRACHA?! It pretty much made my heart skip a beat.
Pesto Chicken and Provolone Sandwiches via Sugar Dish Me – Chicken tossed in a creamy pesto with cashews and so much melty provolone cheese. Did you know April is National Grilled Cheese Month? One more reason to do this sandwich thing.
Farro Risotto with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Kale from Little Kitchie – As soon as I saw this dish I instantly wanted to make it. Not only do I love risotto, but all that COLOR!! Also I should maybe borrow Marie’s dishes because everything is so happyyyyyyy. This one is a great vegetarian option, too.
Roasted Chicken Thighs with Tomatoes and Mushrooms via Will Cook for Smiles – Simple and full of flavor. Balsamic vinegar, fresh thyme, and a hint of feta take this easy chicken dish to a whole other level. We eat a lot of chicken and I love new ways to prepare inexpensive cuts!
Panko Crusted Fish Sandwiches with Wasabi Tartar Sauce via Taste and Tell – The second I saw these I knew they HAD to be shared. I have seriously never seen a prettier fish sandwich and I am in LOVE with wasabi. Do you do fish on Fridays? Because if you don’t. it definitely needs to become a thing.
30-Minute BBQ Chicken Pizza via Just a Taste – This week’s pizza is FABULOUS! And ready in 30 minutes. It’s all about fast and delicious with some ready-made pizza dough and a little shredded rotisserie chicken. Pizza and a cold beer. Yessssss.
Smoky Pork Loin with Pineapple Mango Salsa via Lemons for Lulu – I loooooove pineapple sososo much. I seriously ate a whole one by myself the other day (no regrets). So it stands to reason that pineapple salsa on smoky spicy pork loin is totally my thing.
DON’T FORGET DESSERT!
Birthday Cake Oreo Birthday Cake via Sugar Dish Me – If you don’t have a reason to celebrate, make one up.
