Is anyone else into making weekly to-do lists? I have recently been making them, and I have to say they are really working for me. I split my list up into a few sections: blog, for me, errands, and meal plan/grocery list.
Chicken tenders bring me back to my childhood. They’re a fun, hand held, dip-able dinner. That really is the best part right? You get to dip them in so many sauces. When I was a kid, I would always try to get one of each sauce to dip my chicken nuggets in. Yes, one sauce cup per nugget/tender. Anyone else out there a sauce enthusiast? Anyway, this is my favorite honey mustard dipping sauce. Its zippy with just the right amount of sweetness.
Chicken fajitas are one of the best meals to make when you have company coming over. You can prep all of your toppings and sauces before anyone comes over. Put them right into the serving dishes and pop them into the fridge until your ready. The chicken and veggies only take about 10-15 minutes to cook.
Whenever I make turkey burgers, I like to add a ton of flavorful toppings because a plain turkey burger can be a little sad on its own. In this case, I added a garlicky, balsamic marinated tomato bruschetta, creamy pesto aioli, and basically turned the bun into garlic bread. Okay I like garlic, a lot a lot. But don’t worry, it isn’t too in your face here. There is a nice balance between all of the components. Oh, and the fresh mozzarella? Please, use fresh mozzarella. It will melt infinitely better than the pre-shredded kind. Plus, all you have to do is slice it which only takes a minute. And have a glass of wine while your cooking. You deserve it.
Happy Wednesday, my fellow foodies! I hope your weekends were full of friends and fun. We had a full apartment Sunday for a Fantasy Football Draft party. Now, I’m not a huge football fan, but I am a fan of football food. Pizza, wings, sandwiches, buffalo chicken everything, and ALL of the dips… spinach artichoke, guacamole, salsa, layered taco, hummus, queso…I could go on and on.
