Nothing like some delicious meals to make you happy right?! Here are some of my food updates and a few recipes as well!
Bison Steak and a side of veggies! My mom loves to shop at White Feather Meats where she gets all sort of goodies… when I stayed for dinner the other night we cooked up the bison steaks and made some veggies on the side! We cooked up squash, zucchini, and mushrooms! I love making the side of these veggies… I just like to sauté them a bit in a pan until they are a little soft but still a little crunchy… makes for a delicious side dish. I also like putting some red paper flakes in it as well to spice it up a bit!
As I am sure you have guessed by now, Tim and I love chicken! So we made some grilled chicken on the George Forman (which we love to do) and just put some spices in there! I also love green beans so I try to put them with as many dishes as I can and well Tim loves some cheesy shells so we had some of those too! On the right side of the picture Tim was serving up some Tilapia that night. We love the frozen Tilapia from Sam’s Club and it is so easy to pop in the oven for 25 minutes! Both easy dinner that don’t take long to make and that offer up all sort of delicious and healthy treats!
CHICKEN SAUSAGE! Ahhh I just love it! And I also discovered these Garden Select Vegetable Chips. Now, I won’t pretend for even a second that these are good for you but they are certainly are a better alterative to potato chips. So I prepared Tim some chicken sausage and veggies with the veggie chips on the side. Now, I served Tim’s dinner in a bun but if I can help it I try to opt out of those parts of dinner. I just feel like they are carbs my body doesn’t need or want.
I feel like I have been eating at my parents a lot! Last week we made some tasty herbed mustard chicken. Originally my mom was just going to put the chicken on the George but since she had all the ingredients I decided to mix up some mustard chicken. WE had some mixed greens on the side and strawberries for a little sweet treats on the side. Those greens on the side were pretty serious!
We started out with some wheat grass which cooks down to a very management texture. We then added in peppers and all sort of goodies. It turned out to be very filling and I found myself not wanting anything more after this… satisfying for sure. I think one of the best parts was all of the many textures this meal had… it’s interesting but something should be said for giving your mouth a little fun… allowing all the textures and flavors in one meal make it that much more satisfying.
I love a good salad! This one consisted of lettuce, green olives, and some Morning Star Chicken Patties (which are not really chicken at all but taste just like they are)! So I cooked up those pseudo chicken patties and put it on top of a nice bed of lettuce! I also find these are so much better than lunch because the lettuce and everything just seems more fresh.
I also try to get some spinach in my diet where I can and I have found that I actually really like hard boiled eggs! So (again another night at my parents) we had a nice side of a lot of spinach and some peppers, onions, and a whole lot of vitamins and nutrients.
So there are some food updates for you! Enjoy!!
So Kara and I had the chance for some quality bestest time the other night! We started out our evening shopping for extensions at some uncomfortable accessory store haha! The woman there was so good at what she does she simply took one took at my hair and by the 2nd try she had the perfect match! She also made me laugh when she said “you’re hair is already long?” well yes mam I am growing it out HOWEVER I need it to be thicker, not longer, so I say that is OK. So we got the extensions and Kara’s friend Megan is kind enough to be cutting them for me and sewing them into the clips… now I’ll just have to have Erin (my wonderful fantastic hair dresser) practice over the summer to ensure we have the right hairdo for the wedding!
After getting the hair fun Kara and I headed to Bonefish Grill for dinner. We were fortunate enough to get a wonderful waiter, let’s call him Richy Rich for fun, and we had a wonderful time eating, laughing, reminiscing, and enjoying a delicious meal.
We started out the food journey with the “bang bang shrimp” appetizer. Richy Rich assured me that it may not taste nearly as good if I knew how it was prepared (not much nutritional value there) BUT I have no clue how they make it so I just thought it tasted a little bit like a spicy heaven.
Kara and I each enjoyed a tasty martini as well which at this point I forget what it was called but it was delicious. Especially combined with the Blue Moon beer we had The Winking Lizard before dinner
So pretty right? Ugh I am lucky to have such a beautiful best friend!!
I had tilapia for dinner which these cheese potatoes on the side that Kara recommended! I try not to eat like that all of the time and I only eat half so I felt pretty good about my choice! It was a HUGE piece of fish though… Richy Rich hooked us up!
Kara had these pork chops that Dana had another time they were there and Kara knew they were delicious! She also only got through half of our meal too but we were both grateful to have some goodies to take home!
Those mushrooms were definitely a highlight hu? Plus, Kara opted for the healthier broccoli instead of the cheesy potatoes like I did!
Richy Rich even offered up our leftovers in a very fun and exciting way… what a nice picture of a boney fish ha!
Such a great date night with my bestest! Eating and laughing a lot! Looking forward to many more dates to come!
