Chicken Nuggies & Condiments…

Chicken nuggets 2

O M G this might be my favorite post yet. And although these nuggets probably appear super basic, they were devoured in a total of 5 minutes between Nick and myself. Why did I wait so long to bake chicken nuggets? Have I been living under a rock? This recipe was originally inspired from one of my favorite food bloggers called Skinnytaste, but we made a few tweaks, just because I’m lazy and didn’t feel like heading out to the grocery store. The best part is, this entire meal can be prepped and baked in 20 minutes!  Continue reading “Chicken Nuggies & Condiments…”

Pineapple Pico & Slow Cooked Tacos

This week, following our usual Taco Tuesday tradition, we made tacos using beef chuck roast instead of the usual ground meat, and switched up the toppings and marinade. I’ve been having a major fruit craving this entire pregnancy, so that’s where the pineapple pico came from.And instead of blindly dumping generous amounts of sauces into my crock pot, I actually broke out the food processor to blend the ingredients that go into the marinade first. I’m not going to lie, I actually plugged the food processor into the bathroom and closed the door while blending, b/c I prepped this during Char’s nap and had to be quiet! Oh small NYC living for ya!

Chicken Wing Cravings…

Last night we took this craving and turned it into a healthier version of wings, choosing to make some buffalo chicken meatballs! Not gonna lie, we may have used an entire tub of frank’s red hot in the end, which in hindsight isn’t the healthiest, but you can certainly get away with using less.

Detoxing from Cali….

Mango salsa cod

It’s been a while since our last photographed dinner. Between family in town and our week-long trip to California, healthy blog-worthy meals have been far and few between. However, we have certainly enjoyed all the delicious meals out recently, and it was great to take some time for just Nick and I this last week. Char was in great hands with her grandparents; getting spoiled with cookies, graham crackers, you name it.

Since getting back we have tried to keep the meals pretty light, and tonight’s dinner was our go-to pan seared cod, with an amazing avocado mango salsa on top. This picture doesn’t really do justice, and next time I’ll snap one of the salsa on its own. Continue reading “Detoxing from Cali….”

Meatless Friday!

As Lent season has officially kicked off, we try our best to avoid meat on Fridays. Honestly, there is a Friday or two (or three lol) where we forget, but happily this week we remembered before I hit the grocery store. We were still feeling really hungry though, so decided to make a cauliflower fried rice bowl, packed heavy with a variety of veggies and sauteed shrimp on top. Continue reading “Meatless Friday!”
