Pork Tenderloin (made in the crockpot) served with rice – our favorite

Sweet and tangy chicken – yummo

Fi isn’t a pick eater at all, but this is a recipe we made together using all of our favorite things.

You take chicken breasts and cut them almost all the way in half, leaving a pocket. Fill the pocket with feta or goat cheese, a little bit of garlic, and any other spices or fillings. I like to put in either sundried tomatoes, or red pepper strips, or kalamata olive slices.

Wrap the chicken breasts closed in 2 bacon slices, then bake in a baking dish for 25-30 mins at 350 degrees, or until done. It’s fun because you can make a bunch of different stuffed breasts with anything you want, then bacon makes everything better 🙂

Madras lentils + mac & cheese, the lentils are kind of like chili but presumably healthy for you, and we use and organic mac & cheese, so overall I declare it a healthy meal

I think these mini-meatloaves have been my SO’s favorite so far. He liked them way more than I thought he would, smimple too. 


And these pork chops (never mind the fact that it’s called a ‘random single gal recipie…) http://www.thefrisky.com/2011-11-03/random-single-girl-recipe-mustard-soy-honey-glazed-pork-chops/#more-1605292

I’m vegan but DH is not. He won’t eat my “weird” things (to him Kale, Quinoa, Chia seeds, etc are all super weird) so I do my best to cook up certain meals that he will eat without freaking him out.

The first Vegan meal I made for him was a version of the Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme (a favorite of his).

– Tortillas and Torilla chips, refried beans (vegan/vegetarian variety), taco seasoning mixed with Vegan sour cream, lettuce, salsa, and gucamole. You basically just combine everything into the tortilla and eat! It’s a super cheap, quick, easy, and healthy recipe! Buy the low carb tortillas and chips and you are looking at less than 300 calorie meal!

I have TWO! They are kind of similar, I don’t have real recipes I just make it up as I go along.  One is a Pinterest inspiration, and the other we made up.

The first one you take chicken breasts, season it heavily with a mix of garlic powder, chilli powder, salt, and pepper, and wrap it in thick cut bacon.  You roll that entire thing in brown sugar and then bake at 400.  The chicken cooks through, the bacon crisps, and the brown sugar melts to form this spicy, sweet kick ass sauce. 

The second you take chicken and stuff it with pickled jalapenos and cubes of pepperjack cheese. You wrap that in bacon and bake it until cooked through and crispy.  Then pour BBQ sauce all over it.

Delicious.  I clearly enjoy bacon entirely too much.
