Buttered Parsley Noodles

Have you ever overlooked a recipe then for whatever reason you decide to give it a try and you think why on earth did I wait so long to make this recipe. Well that’s what happened with me. I was browsing thru my pioneer woman cookbook and stumbled upon the noodle recipe I knew my kids would eat as a side dish to our main course. I managed to find a very similar recipe online so I’ll post it here. Trust me it’s a simple yet delicious side dish. Everyone enjoyed it and the kids have requested I make them again soon! Stay tuned for my next post to see the amazing chicken dish I made to accompany these noodles.

A Quick and Simple Lunch

Somedays are so packed you barely have time to stop and think. On days like that I like to make a simple yet satisfying lunch. On Saturday we were busy pricing out some house projects, running errands and organizing the house. Before I knew it I hadn’t eaten a thing and it was lunchtime.

I needed to eat and feed the family(they had breakfast so don’t come at me lol) before there was an upheaval in our house. It was the perfect opportunity to take out the panini press. I made some delicious roast beef wraps with mustard, mayo and a slice of cheddar cheese for those of us that enjoy cheese and grilled it on the panini press.

While those were crisping up I made an incredibly simple side salad that consisted of arugula, walnuts and cherry tomatoes served with a drizzle of homemade balsamic dressing. It took about 15 minutes to pull it all together. This meal definitely always hits the spot and in fact I usually make the sandwich on protein up wraps instead of flour tortillas but either way they are delicious.

Excuse the messy plate we were less concerned about aesthetics and more about eating our meal 🙂

Sweet Potato Fries With Curry Dip

The first time I ever had sweet potato fries with curry dip was when I moved to the East Coast. When we would get them on the West Coast they were usually served with a garlic Aioli. I have to say I love both dips. But since the curry dip is new to me I had to try recreating it at home. I could have made the fries from scratch but I had a bag in the freezer so used those and spent time on the actual dip.

Here’s how I made it, I mixed 1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt, 1/2-1tbsp of curry(you have to play around with just how strong a curry taste you prefer and don’t forget it develops a stronger flavour as it sits) and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt.
