Birch isn’t the only one playing this game!
Spring is around the corner. Last week we had two days above 60 degrees that were GLORIOUS!
I think we can all admit this was one of the harshest winters on record – because the combo of the pandemic, gray cloudy days, canceled school and snow has been a lot at once! That one warm, sunny spring-like day boosted my mood so much!
It was so lovely out, we walked downtown and grabbed a beer outside at Champion.
Entire buildings have been built since the last time I was downtown. Crazytown!
We also pretended it was summer and made smoothie popsicles : ) These are my favorite homemade pop holders because there is no wrestling the pop out of a mold and no drips on the floor! The lids are great during the freezing process, and they go right in the dishwasher.
Banana Kodiak Cakes
Bagel + Grapefruit
My favorite combo of late.
Daily Harvest Oat Bowl
This was delicious!! I prepared it with milk in the microwave.
Brunch Bowls from Mahana Fresh
Mahana Fresh treated us to brunch to try out their new bowls. Here’s what we shared:
- Mahalo Morning – cauliflower rice, spinach, scrambled eggs, citrus ginger sauce, sriracha drizzle?
- Hang Ten Scramble – coconut rice, sautéed peppers and onions, roasted sweet potato, steak, scrambled eggs, avocado smash, creamy wasabi sauce (SO GOOD!)?
- Shaka Sunrise – basmati rice, roasted mushrooms, Mediterranean tomatoes, scrambled eggs, avocado smash, fresh cilantro, cilantro vinaigrette?
I was all over those sauces!!
Egg Salad, “Chips” and Saltines
Tastefully Simple Si Si Cilantro Dip
I did a giveaway with Tastefully Simple on Instagram and made this dip to showcase their Si Si Cilantro Seasoning.
The simple recipe: 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup mayo, lots of fresh lime zest, and 2 tablespoons of Si Si Cilantro. It’s got a little heat from jalapeños.
We made chili with another Tastefully Simple spice the next night and ate it all week!
Blue Apron Panko Curry Chicken
I am all over the Blue Apron panko recipes! We’ve tried three lately and they all have been big winners.
One reason why I love Blue Apron is that I would not put meals like this on my meal plan otherwise. Call it lack of creativity or just the default to simplicity. My meal plan stays jazzed and I don’t even have to think about it.
PS. That is coconut rice!!
Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Carrots + Pan Sauce
Chicken with Drop Biscuits
And this baked chicken with drop biscuits was one of my all-time favorites!
