3 years ago just before Thanksgiving my husband said he was going to cook our turkey in a trash can.  My first thought was a trash can?  That is disgusting!

Mexican Salad

This Mexican Salad recipe takes care of so many food groups and nutrition.  Your tummy and body will thank you for it!

I love to go to Mexican grill restaurants like Chipotle, FreeBirds, Cafe Rio, Costa Vida and order their salad.  It’s like a burrito with lettuce and without the tortilla!

I am not a huge lettuce fan but I do really like salads when they are made with a lot of healthy ingredients.  With lots of ingredients the lettuce tastes so much better!

Honey Garlic Chicken and Vegetables

I love the flavor of this honey garlic chicken!  The sauce is poured over the chicken and then baked.  This allows it to soak into the chicken while cooking and gives the chicken a great flavor.

And because everything is thrown into one pan it makes clean up so fast and easy!  That is a huge plus!

Beef and Bean Chili

I LOVE chili in the fall and winter!

In the fall when the leaves start to change colors and it is a crisp evening chili really hits the spot!

On a snowy winter day, when you have been outside playing in the snow with the kids, and need a quick and easy dinner, chili is perfect!

As requested, a healthy chicken nugget recipe the kids will like!  It is so hard to find good healthy recipes that the kids will eat.  The kids are the ones that are the real testers!  I don’t think these chicken nuggets will disappoint!

I gave a few chicken nuggets to my son for my grandchildren to try.  I wanted to make sure kids would like them too.  The report I received is they really liked them and did not save any for their mom to try.  🙂
