Hey good lookin’ what’s cookin’?

What is for dinner? It seems to often be the question of the day!  I feel like somedays it takes way too much effort to come up with something that sounds good that everyone will eat.  Last week I was looking for a dressing to put on top of leftover taco meat and some greens that I was going to call my unplanned leftover dinner “taco salad”.   Here is what I came up with… a quick and easy Avocado Lime dressing with a few things I already had.

It was so easy I threw it all in my Vitamix and had a quick and easy revamp to boring old leftovers.

Avacado Lime Dressing

2 pitted avocados

1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil

3/4- 1 cup cilantro

5 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1 seeded, chopped jalapeno

Blend and season with salt and pepper if necessary.  No Vitamix? Any blender, immersion blender or food processor will work!

So that night we had taco salad but it makes a ton. So the next day I made this salad for lunch.

It was super easy too.  Just mixed greens, fresh berries and leftover grilled chicken.

I STILL have leftovers and I think the dressing would be a good topping for :

*nachos

*enchiladas

*taco soup

*anything you would use mayo or sour cream on

* chips…yes corn chips 🙂 yum!

*baked potato

*breakfast hash….check the blog later for this one!

*fruit salad

Come on, use your imagination and let me know what you come up with!

By the way, yes this is paleo.  But it has been tested out on my fellow blogger, Ang and she gives it the seal of approval.  See, I just might get some of you to eat paleo after all 🙂

Top 5 go to Quick Dinners

Don’t you hate the dreaded question of the day, ” What should I make for dinner tonight?”  My husband cringes when I ask and pretends not to hear me.  I don’t blame him, I hate the question too.  So here are my new top 5’s that I turn to when I’m uninspired. Continue reading

There are so many bloggers out there, or so Ang and I are finding out!  I have been following this blogger for quite awhile now.  When my husband and I started out on our paleo quest a few years ago we found her wonderful cookbook that has the VERY BEST paleo chocolate chip cookies I have ever had.  I’ve been a follower ever since.  She has a crazy story about her health and how finding the right foods healed her body.  She gave me hope that as a food allergy sufferer I could eat things that tasted amazing and were in my “healthy zone”.  My husband and I followed her posts as she sadly lost a baby last year as well.  She’s an amazing woman who continues to be an inspiration in so many ways.   She came out with another book last year and I use it just as much as the first.  Go check her out and be inspired to eat and and cook healthier for you and your family.  Thanks Danielle Walker, keep on doing what you do!
