Vegetable Fritters

Can I just tell you that I just made these two nights in a row?!  Of course I can, and I just did…and I seriously did make them two nights in a row.  It was my husband’s request!  We had a few left over fritters from the previous night and some steak from even a different dinner that I didn’t want to go bad, so I just figured, left overs it is!  There weren’t enough vegetable fritters, so I just made more!

Grilled Pepper Jack Pineapple Stuffed Anaheim Peppers

DSC_0473

These peppers are just exactly what they say they are in the title.  Anaheim peppers stuffed with pepper jack cheese and crushed pineapple then grilled to perfection.  They are delicious.  It’s just the perfect flavor of sweet and spicy that will leave a wonderful taste in your mouth and wanting more.  It makes for a wonderful side when barbecuing, just like corn on the cob.  But, don’t not make the corn if you are making these.  It’s not a proper barbecue without corn on the cob!

Turkey Stuffed Peppers

This dish is packed with meat and veggies, which is all great things.  Plus, it’s filling and satisfying, trust me.  It just can’t get any better than that for a dinner meal!  Especially for me, since it’s the evenings where I cheat the most with what I eat.  I seriously could eat so clean and great all day, and then come and have carbs in my dinner and a huge bowl of ice cream for dessert, even if I’m not hungry.

Want to hear something really exciting?!  Trader Joe’s has fresh riced cauliflower in their refrigerated vegetable section.  It’s nothing but cauliflower.  You will be just as excited as I am if you have made fresh cauliflower rice.  Cauliflower rice is probably one of the most annoying things to make.  I don’t understand how cauliflower can manage to get all over the place while making it.

Happy Friday!  Happy beginning of Easter Weekend!  You guys, my husband and I get a whole weekend off together!  So excited!  I get so overwhelmed when weekends or days like this come up (they don’t happen too often) because I want to fill our time with something fun and eventful, so the pressures on!  If we are indecisive or just don’t know what to do, we will end up sitting around the house staring at each other trying to figure it out.

BBQ Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Happy hump day!  These lettuce wraps make me so happy!  This would be a great appetizer idea, a side dish for a potluck, lunch, a snack, really the ideas are endless.  One of the secrets I discovered to the perfect lettuce wrap is the lettuce.  Butter lettuce is the best because of it’s texture, shape, and flavor.  I used to use romaine, until I came across butter lettuce.

Gluten Free Beef Stroganoff

DSC_0390

I was craving beef stroganoff the other day because I’m sure the last time I’ve had it was when I was a child, so I just had to make it!  My husband had memories of it too so he was so excited when I was making it.  We both agree it isn’t what we remember as kids, since I added things in it I know my parents didn’t, but the bold flavors were and that’s what’s important.
