It’s no surprise we’re talking about food today, right? (giggle giggle) We have some fantastic produce options here in southern California, and trust me when I say the Whitley family takes full advantage of this. Who knows how long we’ll be here, so I’m soaking up (devouring?) the sweet fruits and crisp veggies while I can. And, fantastic timing being pregnant because that is allllllllll I crave. Except for that moose tracks ice-cream we have in the freezer.
With the weather being so warm randomly I’ve been seeking out even more so recipes that don’t require me to turn on the oven. But when I must, any dish that reheats well gets an extra gold star. I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite recipes, (here is my recipe board on Pinterest).
In no particular Preggo Lady order, some recent favorite recipes:
Buffalo Chicken Tacos — these are truly fantastic!!!
Macaroni & Cheese — a cookbook staple if you crave “comfort food”
Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas — also fantastic ;)
Chicken a la Gloria — we had this Wednesday night, and let’s just say there was enough leftover for 1 lunch serving
Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup — super yum. And all the diced veggies included in the recipe were a nice surprise
Beef with Snow Peas — perhaps one of our top 5 favorites? So deliciously flavorful…
Summertime recipes are especially fun because as much as I truly love cooking and feeding my family well, I love gathering around the table. And summer recipes seem to get us all to the table so much quicker, perhaps because there’s less prep/cook time involved?
I think I’m going to wrap up this post with a confession: I’ve been eating this summer strawberry salad (above photo) basically every single day for two weeks now. Mixed greens, strawberries, walnuts, balsamic vinaigrette and feta crumbles.
What are your favorite summer recipes? Or better yet, include a link to the recipe in your comment! ;)
