This week I am walking a line between the terrible horrible no good very bad weather and the need to eat healthy because I keep seeing swim suit ads ‘On Sale Now!’, and that freaks me out. I think I pulled it off though and I’m pretty excited about the meals I pulled together for this week.
Slow Cooker Tex Mex Chicken – Taste and Tell – I have been really into fluffy white rice this week. Every time I see it I want it. This Slow Cooker Chicken all Tex Mex flavored over white rice looks right up my alley. Plus I can’t think of a better meal for a Monday.
Creamy Lemon and Asparagus Pasta – Crunchy Creamy Sweet – Is anyone else as excited about asparagus being in season as I am? It is one of my favorite vegetables and if you’ve never had it with the complements of lemon you need to get on this easy meal fast.
Reuben Braid – Lemons for Lulu – I. Love. Food. Wrapped. In. Bread. This is like Corned beef meets stromboli with a super easy shortcut on the dough. Can’t wait for this one! Plus it’s a great option for grab-n-go.
Southwest Chicken Pasta – Sugar Dish Me– Did you ever have Ruby Tuesday’s Sonora Chicken Pasta? This is a kind of copycat recipe with a spicy cream sauce, chicken, veggies, and black beans. And it comes together pretty fast. I love it.
Crispy Baked Fish Sticks with Homemade Tartar Sauce- The Lemon Bowl – I have not had fish sticks since I was a kid!! Which makes me want to face plant into these that much more. Homemade with hints of lemon with crispy Panko bread crumbs? Yes, please.
Balsamic Braised Short Ribs – Joyful Healthy Eats– Balsamic vinegar can complement a pan of beef short ribs like nobody’s business. This is a Paleo-friendly recipe which kind of makes me feel like Paleo is do-able. Except I love macaroni and cheese.
Pear, Bacon, and Brie Grilled Cheese – Running to the Kitchen – I am in love with this sandwich. Brie pairs so well with fruit and everything pairs well with bacon so… yeah. Delicious.
Bailey’s Irish Banana Cupcakes – Sugar Dish Me – Soft and moist banana cupcakes topped with a cream cheese frosting that is spiked with Bailey’s Irish Creme. Boozy ganache and a little banana slice make these St. Patrick’s Day-inspired treats complete.
