Dinners of late

Here’s another look at a few dinners we’ve enjoyed over the past few weeks. Most of these meals are simple and basic and can be ready in 30 minutes or less. In return I would love to hear some of your quick and easy dinner ideas in the comments.


 Nothing like a traditional New years dinner in September: Pork chops with black eyed peas, cornbread, and roasted okra.



Spaghetti with Meat Sauce using spaghetti squash in place of pasta noodles.



Taco Salad using ground turkey. Topped with cheese, sautéed peppers and onions, a few corn chips, chipotle sauce and a drizzle of ranch dressing.

I forgot my camera so here is an iPhone shot under the worst lighting ever. I am only sharing this picture so I can talk about this amazing fillet. Jason and I picked up some steaks from Block and Grinder before leaving for the mountains this past weekend.  We added salt, pepper and a little butter before throwing them on the grill and I can honestly say this was one of the best fillets I have ever had. The quality of meat is everything when it comes to a good fillet.
Served with asparagus and cauliflower/potato mash.

For the mash: Add 1 head of cauliflower and 3 Yukon potatoes to boiling water. Once everything is soft, drain water and blend using an immersion blender. Add butter, salt, and pepper.



Pork chops and leftover cauliflower/potato mash with a side salad.


 Skinnytaste 3 Bean Turkey chili topped with Greek yogurt and shredded cheese. Whole Wheat Cornbread on the side.

    Thanks. I know it doesn’t seem that way by the looks of this post but we don’t buy them nearly enough either. Must change that.
