I’m always looking for fun, protein-packed salads to make ahead and stash in the fridge. Although it’s not “formal” meal prep, this Caesar Chicken Salad is a great way to get ahead on a couple of lunches or light dinners for the week ahead.
My daughter introduced me to one of her fave recipes. It’s Creamy Chicken with Sun Dried Tomatoes. If you do a search, there are many variations on this dish (and of the name, although sometimes you’ll see it called Tuscan Chicken – I think that’s an American affectation); this one is straightforward and easy and only has a handful of ingredients – but it’s no less delish for all of that!
Sometimes I think a bell pepper can be stuffed with just about anything but I gotta tell you these easy Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are really a standout. They have the fun flavor of tacos but are fresher, lighter, and lower carb, and can I just say, stuffed with mostly pantry ingredients? And cheese. And ground beef, chicken or turkey (or just go vegetarian.) And then, well, more cheese.
Once summer comes I don’t think of food in the same way, and this year is no exception. Maybe this year, 2020 is the year more of us will be thinking about food a lot differently. I’m finding myself relaxing the rules, moving more and more away from the idea of “square meals” and trying to have more fun. There’s not much that’s more fun than these Easy Honey Garlic Chicken Wings.
