Who says it’s hard to eat healthy?! Well not me because here is a quick and easy way to have a filling meal where you are not left feeling guilty. Eating healthy does take preparation but not a whole lot. Lately, it’s actually becoming easier to eat healthy especially on the go, but what about when you are home. This recipe for chicken and veggie whole wheat quesadillas contains a list of things that can be easily grabbed at your local grocery store.…
A couple weekends back, hubby was off and we were having a lazy Saturday. Lazy Saturdays are great except for the part where we all don’t want to do anything (this includes me) but everyone is waiting for me to cook. Sheesh. This past Saturday was not exception. I just wanted to Netflix and chill like the rest of the house. Heh. So I made burgers. You know, something quick. I also made fries. The fries, y’all, were so good. They weren’t just everyday frozen fries out the bag either. I made Cajun ranch oven roasted fries. I am just going to reach my hand around and pat myself on the back because these oven roasted fries were so good!
Oh my goodness! I am loving the fact that it is finally warming up a bit. The sun is out. I am feeling like a lounge chair and a few days off. So that’s not happening, not right now anyway. I have been in a cheery and fiesta mood as of late that has translated into food. Of course, right?! Strawberry mango salsa is my latest obsession and it’s so timely with Cinco de Mayo around the corner.
Like most foods that I make, it is pretty simple to gather ingredients and an explosion of flavor. I mean seriously, life is too short to not eat to taste and enjoy amazing food. At least that is my mantra for the time being. Seasons change and so do my views but for now I want great looking and tasting food. And doesn’t this look yummy and don’t forget healthy!
One great things about this recipe is that incorporates strawberries which are in season and are yummy and sweet. A favorite childhood memory of mine is going to the strawberry farm and picking strawberries from the vine. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.
