Time for another recipe update. I can’t believe I’m still going!!
Monday, February 4th- Salami and Cheese Panini: Pretty basic recipe here. Also pretty delicious. I love a good Panini. No need for a fancy Panini griller either–a simple countertop George Foreman grill will do!
Tuesday, February 5th- Sweet Potato Burritos: Sweet potatoes are something that I used to think were just for Thanksgiving time. Now I’m obsessed! Sweet potato fries, sweet potato burritos, sweet potatoes by themselves as a side. They’re so tasty and really pretty good for you!
Wednesday, February 6th- Cedar Planked Salmon: I was so excited to do this recipe and then I completely FORGOT to take a picture. But I did make it. Sam helped me out as he is the grill master. I would say it was pretty successful. I’m still getting comfortable with cooking different fishies, but I get better each time. I almost cook a fish recipe a week now!
Thursday, February 7th-Chicken with Port Wine: I have made similar recipes of this in the past. I wasn’t fully impressed with this particular recipe however. Or the port that I bought…I’m not sure which. The flavor just wasn’t there.
Friday, February 8th-Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies: Apparently I couldn’t be bothered to take off the saran wrap (probably because I was afraid I would eat the rest–as you can see I already had eaten quite a few before I took a picture). Needless to say these were delicious! Anything with peanut butter, chocolate, and sugar is FANTASTIC in my book.
Saturday/Sunday, February 9th/10th-Almond Biscotti: Didn’t come out as hard as legit biscotti (I’m okay with that). Love the almond flavor in it though!
And there you have it! Another week of my recipe challenge (only a couple months behind, but that’s okay)!
Life is really great right now otherwise. Lots of fun wedding planning and I FINALLY GOT A JOB (be patient, friends! It will come!)! It’s an RN position at a pediatric primary care office and I love it already (I just started last week). Now when I get a chance to blog some more I can finally start talking about the job search process and what not. Just wanted to give you all that little update in the meantime though!
