Strawberry-Banana Smoothie


Last night was another repeat dinner of my taco recipe (it's a fan favorite and super easy so it's heavily in the rotation). So, instead I thought I'd share my favorite breakfast smoothie recipe, which I am drinking as we speak!

In a blender: 
  • Take a couple handfuls of strawberries, cut off the tops and chop them into large pieces (probably about a cup or cup and a half)
  • Cut up one banana (this is great for overripe ones) 
  • Add 2 cups of vanilla yogurt (I use low fat or no fat...not a fan of whole milk yogurt, and you could use Greek yogurt if you like) 
  • Throw in a couple ice cubes--I don't know why but ice cubes help the texture. 
Blend all togther, and voila! Healthy easy breakfast that's surprisingly filling!

Rose's Roasted Red Potatoes

We had a pork chop repeat last night as the main course, but this is quite possibly my favorite side dish: About 3 lbs red potatoes, wash and dice into bite-size pieces. Do not peel the skins. Heat your oven to 400 Put the diced potatoes in a large baking dish (13x9), and add about 1/4 cup of EVOO (enough to cover all of them but not soaking) Season with oregano (lots, like 2-3 tbsp), garlic powder, black pepper, and a little kosher salt. Stir that all around so they're evenly seasoned. Bake for about an hour and stir them a couple times during that hour. When the potatoes are soft and you can cut right through them, they're ready. Simple but delicious and works with nearly any chicken/steak/pork dish!

Weekend Edition - Bad@ss Enchiladas

So over the weekend (Client name redacted) got tweeted about by the President, and the (state name redacted) governor got in a public spat with the (agency name redacted) over (client name redacted)'s (solution redacted), so last night I was not cooking!  However, on Saturday I made something brand new, which I am dubbing "Bad@ss Enchiladas." Without further ado... Take 2-4 chicken breasts and put them in a slow cooker (grease the slow cooker with olive oil), season both sides with cumin, paprika, chili powder, and some garlic (I used minced fresh garlic but garlic powder would work too). Cook them on high for 6 hours, and when they're done, shred them with a big fork. When the chicken is close to done, dice 1 zucchini, 1/2 bell pepper, 1/4 onion and sautee in EVOO with those same spices mentioned above. When the veggies are softened, add a can of (rinsed/drained) black beans. Stir. At the same time, or thereabouts, make the enchilada sauce: 3

Chipotle

That's right, I ordered Chipotle for pick up last night! And it was delicious.  With (client name redacted) being crazy town there was no time for cooking, but I did make it to the store this morning so we'll be back on track tonight!
