Good morning! This is where I usually share a run with y’all but I have too much food to share instead. We’ve been enjoying lots of Cooksmarts meals lately — it’s time for a recipe roundup!
First, this honey-sesame chicken salad.I marinated the chicken in a soy sauce/honey mixture, and then cooked it in a sizzling wok. Oil was flying everywhere but it was worth it. Ha. Tossed in sesame seeds at the very end.The salad was light and fresh, but really filling — there’s edamame and cashews in there for staying power.Awesome dinner! (And perfect lunch the next day).Second on the menu (not Cooksmarts, though!): HOT chicken. As my Instagram peeps will know, Anthony and I had the Hattie B’s experience the other night. Hot chicken is kind of a thing in Nashville so I figured it was about time that Anthony immerse himself in this cultural undertaking.I ordered our chicken to go and we put ours on salads because that makes it healthy, right? 😉
I split the order in half: One chicken was “medium”-level hotness…and I upgraded to the “damn hot” level for the rest.Damn hot lived up to its name. My eyes were watering and I think I burned off most of my taste buds after one bite. Romantic date night, indeed! Last on the list: this quiche! Quiche is my go-to recipe when I’m looking to make something quick, cheap, and healthy. Cooksmarts has a kale and swiss quiche recipe, so I added that to our meal plan last week.
FYI, this is what it looks like when you design a meal plan. You can see that I skipped the caprese sandwiches last week (in grey) and replaced that menu item with a quiche instead. Easy peasy! (easy quiche-y?)
Turned out great!
This week’s menu is shaping up nicely, too. Tonight we’re trying honey-citrus chicken on the grill!
