Recipe Box...

I realized something recently, I've been holding out on all of you! Once in awhile I post a recipe, but that's not as often as we hit the internet to search for our weekly meals. Every Sunday I'll visit pinterest or foodgawker and try to make a list for the week so we don't have go back and forth to the store, we typically pick 2 recipes that we have never cooked before and then one or two nights of something 'easy'. We adore cooking together and are a great team in the kitchen, but when we work everyday, we do want to keep it fairly simple, so choosing 3 hour meals is not an option. It's funny too, because I remember living alone thinking a bowl of cereal or crackers and hummus was a viable dinner;) is a little recipe box of things we have cooked and are going to try this week. I'll try to share 2 or 3 each week. Enjoy! 

Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad
Beet Salad Pizza
Thai Red Curry (go heavy on the ginger - it makes such a difference in the taste)
Chicken Piccata
Asparagus Risotto (I like to add sauteed mushrooms for flavor)
Skillet Roast Pork Loin
Baked Sole (I bake it for 15 min then pan fry for 5 minutes in butter, add more lemon and capers!)
Chicken Meatball Soup (you can do this without noodles too, just add extra spinach)
Linguine & Shrimp Scampi (had to add this one last minute since we're cooking it up tonight)

What a fun thing to do! I need to get better about eating out less, and cooking more- especially with resources like pinterest and food gawker!
