FutureMrsGrabs:  One Pinterest recipe that I made is the sweet and sour chicken (http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2012/03/baked-sweet-and-sour-chicken-recipe.html). It does have quite a bit of sugar in it which you could probably cut down. I think it is really yummy and stops my craving for chinese food. 

I also really like chicken pot pie and put as many veggies in as my husband can stand. I often make stir frys too. I’m sure you could find recipes for them but I just kind of use what we have in the house. I’ll use either beef or chicken (shrimp would probably also be good but my husband doesn’t eat them) and then chop a bunch of vegetables and throw them in. Serve this over rice or egg noodles.

I made this two weeks ago, after my husband requested more Mexican food being added to the menue.  It was so yummy and a lot easier than I thought it would be

Now that the weather is turning colder, this recipe will probably find it’s way back into the rotation.  It’s good, and the seasoning isn’t a bunch of extra salt or sugar.

Made this recently: 

For the salmon: 

salmon (mine was just under a lb I believe)

about a tablespoon and a half to two tablespoons smoked paprika 

tablespoon crushed fennel seed 

tablespoon chopped fresh dill… dried works fine too 

tablespoon brown sugar 

salt and pepper to taste

Mix above ingredients in a small bowl. Rub salmon with olive oil… I was using skin on salmon so I coated tops and sides of each piece. Heat a grill pan to medium heat and sear both sides until cooked through. Time is dependent on the thickness of the salmon but usually a 3 to 5 minutes each side. You can tell it’s finished when it’s opaque and flakes with a fork. 

 

For the salad:

one cucumber

one shallot

small bunch of chives 

olive oil 

half a lemon

While your salmon is cooking cut a cucumber into strips. Chop half a shallot. Chop half tablespoon to full tablespoon of chives depending on your tastes. Combine in bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and the juice from half a lemon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

sounds weird but is SO GOOD – Cesar Tortellini. basically you cook tortellini (from the refrigerator section) and toss with a cesar salad kit – lettuce and all. So. Good! We add shredded pork (sometimes), and chopped red onion and tomato when we have it laying around. easy and delicious!

Literally any vegetable on earth is DELICIOUS when roasted with olive oil and garlic.  My favorites are broccoli, asparagus, brussel sprouts, or beets.  Dice em up, toss them with oil / garlic / salt and pepper, bake at ~380 for 20 minutes and then broil for a couple minutes.  It’s so amazingly yummy and also healthy and low calorie (just don’t use too much oil).

MissStoGee:  I love that recipe.  Too bad the DH is not as big of fan.
