Hi friends! If we are still on schedule today we are lounging on the beaches of Koh Samui (follow along on Instagram or snapchat @courtneyalkek for both). Due to the magic of the inter webs I am bringing you this month’s top recipes we tried without actually setting a finger on a keyboard today. Gotta love scheduling posts- I should really be better at this when I am not on vacation.
Without further ado…
I told you last month we were obsessed with lentils. I didn’t realize until after I bought all the ingredients that this is meant to be a slow cooker recipe (which we do not have here). I just cooked the rice and lentils on their own then let them sit in a saucepan with the sauce and marinate for a while before assembling the quesadillas and they tasted amazing! It makes quite a big batch too so we were able to keep the filling in the fridge and whip up some more quesadillas for lunch over the weekend.
One of the few items I have people send over from the States are Hidden Valley Ranch packets in all sorts of flavors. I usually just use them to mix with greek yogurt but when I saw this recipe on pinterest I knew I had to take advantage of having ranch on hand. Plus cauliflower is my favorite. My only complaint is I didn’t buy enough cauliflower because I just wanted mooooore.
I love chimichurri sauce and I had no idea how simple it is to make! Looks like we will be having it a lot more often from now on. We made these yummy shrimp (or prawns as they say here) and put them in corn tortillas to make a tacos. So good!
This month’s recap is short and sweet since we were only home half of the month, have a great weekend!
