friends, never did i think i would say this, but here i am saying it.
i enjoy the task of cooking healthy, delicious meals for my family.
bah! it feels good to get that right off my shrinking chest.
(seriously - i've lost some l-b's and my boobs are FINALLY shrinking.)
as i was saying...
the girls are finally to the age where they will occupy themselves for 20 minutes. that's not to say i don't get pulled away 47 times, but at least i can complete the meal task.
when it was just kaye...and when sawyer was younger - making dinner was a full-blown stress-inducing shit-show. yeah...to be a fly on our wall would have been quite the treat.
more than once i raised my voice and did the ugly mom // crazy eyes face. not my finest moments.
now that being in the kitchen is a delight i've been getting more adventurous in my meal making.
the best news - it took less than 20 minutes (because ahi only needs grilled for about two minutes on each side). i also grilled some asparagus and sautéed some scallops. it was all such a treat and my farmer managed to choke it down.
and friends...if you're thinking this easy recipe sounds like it might be your style - make it tonight.
i'd also love to enjoy the fresh basil it calls for, but the dill in my herb garden got so out of control it choked the life right out of it.
it's certainly more involved, but worth a shot. and my gals really do like quinoa, so i think this will be a hit with the fam.
and lastly - tacos. give me all the tacos. chicken tacos // shrimp tacos // beef tacos...i love them. can't get enough of them. want to marry them. maybe its because tacos go so well with margaritas. yum.
anyway...here are some of my favorite varieties -
caribbean chicken tacos
roasted chicken tacos with spicy goat cheese queso
feel free to follow me on pinterest if you're on the hunt for healthy recipes and you want to get out of your rut! i'm always on the lookout for anything that can be grilled (easy clean up!) and anything that can be made quickly. quick - operative word.
happy june 1! june 1?!
