Now that it’s Lent, I have been trying to find recipes without meat for Matt and me to eat on Fridays. As much as I enjoy a good fish fry, Matt and I gave up going out to eat for Lent, so we are stuck cooking our own sans-meat meals. I have been resisting the temptation to toss some frozen fish sticks into the oven. Instead, I made this fun pasta dish that doesn’t need sauce.
Grilled Chicken with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce
I knew I was either going to love it or hate it this recipe. Unfortunately, it was the latter, but that’s just me. If you really enjoy grilled chicken with a heavier sauce, then this recipe was made for you. The grilled chicken part was fabulous though. Matt’s grilling skills saved the meal.
Tonight I made cabbage rolls. With St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, I wanted to get in the Irish spirit. Growing up, I always loved my mom’s cabbage rolls, but I wanted to try a different recipe. So, here is Paula Dean’s recipe as posted by Pennies on a Platter.
Fresh Mozzarella, Basil, and Tomato Salad
This is easily my favorite side dish by far. After pinning this recipe from the la bella vita delicious & beautiful living blog, it exploded with repins–almost 12,000! And rightly so. This is delicious! I am very thankful that Roz introduced me to this delicious salad.
Lightened Up Meatloaf with Bell Pepper Relish and Garlic and Herb Cauliflower Puree
Now that everyone is pinning recipes like crazy, I decided I would actually try to make the recipes I pin on Pinterest. Tonight’s recipe comes from Baker Bettie. I had such a fun time making it and Matt absolutely loved it!
