Brought dinner to some new parent friends tonight, and tried something lighter than my usual casseroles + pasta dishes -- lemony Greek grilled chicken served up on a bed of roasted veggies (peppers, onions, broccoli, eggplant, mushrooms, zucchini, + squash), with a fresh loaf of multigrain bread.

Perfect night for grilling! Made some tweaks to a Hello Fresh meal - grilled Ethiopian Berbere chicken with sautรฉed zucchini, cilantro rice, + lemon yogurt sauce - and it turned out ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!

So excited for Mother's Day weekend fun with my family! Relaxing morning โ˜€๏ธโœ”๏ธ Mexican lunch ๐ŸŒฎโœ”๏ธ Ice cream shop visit ๐Ÿฆโœ”๏ธ Napped with the baby ๐Ÿ˜ดโœ”๏ธ ... and it's not even officially Mother's Day yet! So grateful for these two little loves. ๐Ÿ’•

High-fiving myself ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป for making a double batch of Chicken/Broccoli/Alfredo Stuffed Shells last time and freezing half in a disposable pan. Thawed them in the fridge overnight, baked covered for 45 minutes, topped with a little more Alfredo + Parmesan ๐Ÿง€, and its eatin' time! Almost no effort needed, which is so appreciated after a busy week. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

Breakfast for dinner with a twist! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ Roasted poblano/potato hash/Monterey Jack quesadillas with homemade guacamole + bacon. ๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸŒถ My husband added a fried egg to the top of his, which was brilliant. ๐Ÿณ

God bless the slow-cooker on busy days! Less than 10-minutes of prep this morning, and !voila! delicious bowls of coconut chickpea curry with couscous for dinner. And miraculously, my kiddo loves this meal! ๐ŸŽ‰ (There's lots she *won't* eat, but if it's vegetarian and/or curry, she's usually a fan).

Amazing dinner at @lockelandtable last night celebrating our anniversary/my birthday/our first date night since baby's arrival! Ravioli with ricotta and aged beef, topped with radish top pesto // smoked chicken + shishito pepper empanadas with chimichurri // seared scallops with fingerling potatoes // "The Pig" pizza with an alarmingly delicious amount of pork toppings. A+ meal, fab company, and both kiddos were asleep at home the whole time under the watch of my MIL. ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅ‚

Husband offered to make or bring home anything I wanted for my birthday diner. I love cooking, so I opted to cook it myself -- Homemade chicken lo mein packed with veggies. And husband chipped in by bringing home takeout egg rolls, spring rolls, rangoons, and hot+sour soup. We're a good team. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿœ

Poblano chiles rellenos topped with chipotle sauce + Monterey Jack, headed into the oven! ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿ”ฅ I'm the only one in my house who eats stuffed peppers so MOAR FOR ME. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ

Celebrating 6 years of marriage to my husband today! Homemade meatballs with pasta is our go-to celebratory meal, and this year's was extra delicious with top-notch local beef, homemade marinara, + fabulous grana padano. Perfection! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿท๐Ÿง€

Orecchiette with sausage, baby broccoli, and pesto. Feels SO good to get a home-cooked meal on the table, especially after a busy day with work and the kiddos. Doesn't happen every night, but it's getting more frequent! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ

Off to bed with a full heart after a beautiful, perfect Easter weekend with my people. โค๏ธ Lots of family, friends, outside time, and egg-hunting/bunny-hugging for the littles!
