It's Friday. Thank the good Lord! This week has been a struggle. I've had to drag myself out of bed every morning and in the evening I'm asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
I haven't even had a meal planned out more than a few hours in advance. This coming from a girl who typically has at least a week, sometimes 10 days worth of meals planned out ahead of time!! Saturday morning I'm really looking forward to sleeping in and having a lazy, relaxing day, but Sunday I'm excited to hit up the grocery store and watch some NASCAR. You're not surprised I'm a NASCAR fan, right?!? Okay, back to the task at hand, does grocery shopping excite anyone else? I really enjoy it! For me it's a challenge.
Finding bargains and trying to shop the perimeter of the store, you know where the healthy stuff is! I feel like I really have my sheet together when my cart is full of fresh produce that I know I'm going to turn into something yummy!
Since it's Friday, I thought I'd share five tasty recipes that Matt and I have enjoyed recently for my 5 on Friday link up!
I wasn't raised eating fish, I grew up on a cattle farm, okay?!? Learning to cook and eat fish is something I've really tried to do as an adult and with recipes like this one, it's an easy sell! Matt and I both really, really like this recipe and we make it once or twice a month! I've even made it using almond flour to keep in Paleo! We actually had it for supper last night with a side salad and sugar snap peas.
Let the infatuation with kale begin! This sausage, potato and kale soup seriously got me through some cold winter nights over the last few months. It's very easy to throw together and tastes amazing! I omit the heavy cream, but adding it in would just create a wonderful velvety texture.
See, more kale?!?! I have serious love for this recipe! It's great roasted, but I have to stop myself from eating it raw once it's all seasoned up because it's good that way too!
Last kale recipe, I promise! But you'll see another sweet potato recipe follows this one...
Hi, I'm Myla and I have a slight obsession with kale and sweet potatoes.
I super big, puffy heart LOVE this creation! It's Paleo and Whole30 approved, but throw that out the freakin' window and just eat it because it's SO AMAZING!!
How many of you are fans of Gina at Skinny Taste? I think she rocks. This chili is a winner! And it's got sweet potatoes in it which means I'm sold!
Aside from kale and sweet tators, we're also really into brussels sprouts and plantains! Okay, so spill! Do you have a current food obsession?
Have a safe and happy weekend! Cheers!
