I feel like I was just writing April’s recipe recap, this month has seriously flown by! Here’s some recipes we tried this month…
Spinach-Chicken Sausage Spaghetti Squash via Pappa Don’t Preach
We found spaghetti squash at one of the stalls at our local farmer’s market (it is not easy to find here) so we had to get it. We switched out regular spaghetti squash for pesto since Trav prefers it, and it was still delicious. I forget how easy and delicious spaghetti squash is since we don’t get to have it very often.
Avocado Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip via Cooking Classy
When I forgot to buy cilantro for our regular go-to avocado dressing, I had to turn to Pinterest for a replacement. I figured I might as well use one of the 100 packets of ranch dressing mix in my pantry that I make everyone bring me from the US. This is now my favorite for Sunday Salad night and also to take to school to dip my veggies in. Super easy and stays fresh in a mason jar all week.
No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Squares via Cookies and Cups
I blogged about these in a recent Friday Favorites, but wanted to include it in the recap. These bars were so easy and such a great sweet treat all week. I will be making more this week!
Summer Vegetables with Sausage and Potatoes via Skinnytaste
As usual Skinnytaste never disappoints and I subbed regular sausage for chicken sausage (can you tell I have been on a kick lately?). Nothing easier than a one pot/skillet meal.
Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Someone on my Facebook the other day posted a link to an article that boasted about knowing the secret to the best grilled cheese sandwiches. For the life of me I can’t figure out what website it was on to link to it, so I will just fill you in on the secret ;). After you butter the outside of the bread slices, sprinkle them with parmesan cheese. It sounds simple but it really does make your grilled cheese so much better. The cooked cheese/butter combo on the outside of the sandwich takes the whole thing to a new level. Try it out for yourself and tell me I’m wrong, I dare you. I have done this on every grilled cheese and grilled ham/cheese since.
The rest of our month was spent eating some old staples (check them out in previous recipe recaps here) and a few recipes that did not make the cut to be made again.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
