Hi blog friends!
I'm still here!! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Things are ok, I'm not totally in control, but also not totally out of control. I'm maintaining, and with the craziness that is my life right now, I'm ok with that. Even though I haven't commented much, I've been keeping up with all of you through your blogs.
Because my family is a little tired of what I cook all the time, I've been branching out and trying new recipes. Let me just say...YUM!!! First, I loved the show "Next Food Network Star," and I LOVE Aarti, I'm so glad she won! Her recipes really intrigue me, because I love Indian spices but I'm not always certain how to incorporate them into our daily dishes. So far, I've tried her massaged kale salad, bombay sloppy joes, and mango bbq pulled pork. Each of these dishes was DIVINE. Seriously. The kale salad was so light and yummy, a total surprise since I didn't expect to like it. The recipe is an added bonus because kale is SOOO good for you. The bombay sloppy joes were spicy, sweet, and totally tasty. The mango bbq pork, however, was the absolute best. My whole family loved it and ate it right up. If you have a chance, try out her recipes! Sorry there are no pictures, I'll do better!
Also, Tami over at Nutmeg Notebook posted a mexican chicken salad recipe that I had to try. Rave reviews at our house. I thought that I had made enough for dinner and lunches for a few days, but, alas, no leftovers! Seriously, this salad is GOOD!
Anyone out there have any yummy new recipes to try?
