Mexican Salmon Salad

The grill ran out of juice so my Grilled Mexican Salmon Salad had to become a Seared Mexican Salmon Salad. 

Not to worry. It was full of flavor. And searing the salmon made it juicy on the inside with a delicious crust on the outside. 

I loved how pretty the dinosaur kale looked before I turned it into a salad. And my version looks a lot like the Green Chef photo. 

I’m serious. You need to try it. Get a week free here. You’ll like it. I promise. 

Green Chef: Try It

Ok. You are going to need this link by the time I’m done sharing about tonight’s dinner. 

Dinner was phenomenal. Harissa Glazed Pork Chops with Braised Green Beans and Carrots and a side salad from Green Chef. 

I didn’t have to think. Didn’t have to plan. Just pulled out the color-coded ingredients and made dinner. 

It was full of flavor. It was all Paleo, which is important to me even though I don’t always eat Paleo. 

If you haven’t tried a subscription box, I urge you to try it at least once. It is amazing. And I love it. It will be something we do off and on for a while. Because hello convenience. 

I’ll give it to you again. The link to try it for a week. See if you like it. Tell me what you think. 

Sammies FTW

I’ve never been a sandwich for dinner type of girl. Probably because my momma spoiled me by making delicious dinners every night. Sandwiches were a lunch thing at our house. And for the most part, I still feel that way. 

But tonight, after a long day of cooking for a project at work, I couldn’t even imagine cooking. 

So I didn’t. 

Instead, I swam some laps in the pool. And then I made a delicious sandwich. 

Now this sammie is special. It’s got homemade bread from Me and McGee Market in North Little Rock. 

A good sandwich starts with good bread. Everything else is just extra. My sammie extras included ham, Gouda cheese, sliced heirloom tomato, baby arugula and spinach mix and horseradish mustard with a side of Terra Heritage Blend Chips. 

If you haven’t tried Terra chips, you need to. I love the Heritage blend. It has sweet potato chips, beet chips, parsnip chips and other delicious root veggies. I love all the colors. 

What is your favorite sammie? Favorite chips? 

Summer Grillin’

Nothing beats a hamburger on the grill. 

Lately, I’ve been grilling up some mean hamburgers. I found some delicious seasoning mix called Fennel and Fire’s Hambuger Blast. And it is life changing. 

I paired my burgers with fried potatoes, lady cream peas and sautéed lemon pepper okra from Me & McGee Market in North Little Rock. 

It was summer produce perfection. 

I absolutely love having a farmer’s market in my backyard. I actually have three within a couple miles of each other so I like to share the love. 

What have you been grillin’ lately? Favorite summer dinners? Favorite farmers’ markets?

What If…

What if you could eat the foods I cooked every day? 

What if they were available to you in the correct portion size?

What if all you had to do was reheat and eat?

Would you be down for that?

People have been asking me to make food for them for as long as o can remember. Comments on photos and blog posts. Direct messages on Facebook. And I’ve always kind of thought of it as the highest compliment. 

But what if I did do it?

Would you be interested?

I’m taking a poll. To see how many people are interested in homemade lunches and/or dinners. This is all purely an experiment to see if there is interest.

If you respond, I’ll create a menu, and we will see what happens. 

Leave your comments, and let me know what you think.
