oh hey, friday! | spice things up


...in the kitchen.

spice things up in the kitchen. 

i'm in a cooking rut. my poor farmer. i can only expect him to eat a burrito bowl full of romaine and quinoa so many nights a week. ya know? 

so i decided to dig deep this week. deep into my pinterest boards (<---you can totally follow my boards!) to find five recipes that i'll be excited about preparing for my farmer and my two best gals. 

but before we all start drooling at 8 am (let's at least wait for lunch)...get linked up! you know the drill...

1 | grab this here snazzy fall-themed button and link back to Sept. Farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.


M Y  F I V E - spice things up...in the kitchen

1 | brie + bacon grilled cheese with fig jam
source
we'll start the week off unhealthy and then work our way out of this brie and bacon heaven. but doesn't this just look amazing? brie = love. bacon = love. get in my mouth.

2 | teriyaki salmon with sriracha cream sauce
source
i have to admit...i grilled this recipe up this past summer...and i've been dreaming of it ever since. i've never done salmon in the oven, so we'll see how it goes.

3 | blackened chicken with cilantro lime quinoa
source
yep. sign me up! i'm always looking for new recipes for a good baked chicken breast...and this is it. double bonus that it's on a bed of flavorful, healthy quinoa! i also love that the avocado cream sauce topping the chicken is made with a greek yogurt base. that's a win!

4 | roasted butternut squash and bacon soup
source
the other day at costco i noticed for the first time pre-cut butternut squash. yes please. sign me up. have you ever tried to cut a butternut squash yourself? #notworthit i mean...the recipe i made was good, but not worth potentially losing a finger or maybe even an entire hand for. so anyway...pre-cut squash - that i can get on board with. i snagged it up. i'll be making this recipe for sure.

5 | shrimp tacos with cilantro lime sour cream
source

and lastly...this deliciousness. i'm a big big fan of fish tacos. there's a restaurant in boise that serves a myriad of yummy dishes...but i always order the fish tacos. can't help myself. this means its about time i make them at home. i know they won't be as yummy because i'll be using whole grain tortillas and subbing out the sour cream for greek yogurt, but these look wonderfully flavorful and i'll get extra high fives if i can get kaye to eat the shrimp.

that's it! i'm totally going to get things jazzed up in the dinner arena. my farmer will give me extra kisses for all my domestic goddess-ness...or something like that.

now go get linked up! and after that...if it suites your fancy, find me on instagram and snapchat (@karli-bell) where i'll be documenting all sorts of fun while we hit the slopes! (i'm totally going to do some jumps.)

link up!

  5. Okay. Anything with cilantro and lime in it needs to get in my belly asap. We are having shrimp tacos tonight and now I CANNOT wait after seeing your photos. I mean. It's 930 am and I am already looking forward to dinner....

  6. Ohh I've pinned that chicken with cilantro lime avocado sauce before, I really need to make that! Anytime I hear the word "cilantro" I'm basically sold!

  7. An easy way to cut squash is you stab your knife in to have a vent for air or if it is a fresh squash you can poke your fork in to make air vents then throw it in the microwave for around 3.5 minutes and voila it is super easy to peel and cut.

  9. Or ...what am I saying precut squash at Costco sounds fabulous rather than getting all fancy pants. I'd opt for precut anyway. Pulling those squash guts out is enough to make one squeamish.

  10. So true about the Butternut squash. We don't have a Costco and our Sams has not carried the pre-cut in so long!! These all look delish.

  11. Yes, please! OK, I'm going to eat now ;)

  12. The babuskas (grandmas) on the streets here sell their garden pumpkin and butternut squash cut up and bagged for like 10uah ($.50) a bag. I made the mistake ONCE of trying to cut up my own butternut squash. So not worth it!!!!!!

  14. so true about the pre-cut squash! you have me in hysterics. and also that salmon-YUM!

  15. My husband needs that salmon dish! One of my Christmas gifts to him this year was a homemade salmon meal (I'd never made salmon before...I don't like fish). I ended up making it in a foil packet and he LOVED it. However, if I made something fancy like that, he'd probably ask me to marry him all over again! :)
