Fresh salsa is one of my favorite fresh dishes to have on hand in the summer. It can dress up tacos, eggs, or be served with tortillas chips and a margarita in hand. Fresh diced melon is an unexpected and delicious addition to any type of salsa and the brightness it adds to this recipe is on par with summer sunshine.
As much as I love hearty dishes in winter, sometimes I crave something a bit more suited to warm weather. I grew up eating flank steak, and it has a special place in my heart. While my mom always marinated and baked this cut of meat in the oven, I'm a little less patient and find that the stovetop works just as well (only second to the grill).
When I was in college, my mentor and I went to Chick-Fil-A just about every week to talk about life and whatever chapter of the Bible we were reading together. I think that’s when my love affair with those tender, yet crispy nuggets started. It’s just about the only fast food that I crave, but when I do, it’s the only thing I can think about. And the SAUCE the sauce the sauce. I would like to think that I have a healthy relationship with this establishment, but I’m starting to reconsider.
I saw this recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo for a home-made version of the infamous nuggets, and had to try them. Who doesn’t need a good nugget in their cooking repertoire? And ohemgee are they delicious. Jackie (a fellow CFA lover) and I served it up with some home made guac and yummy baked french fries. Recipes for those two lovely items are coming soon!
