After about three hours of studying veterinary terminology, my brain felt raw yesterday. After all that work, I wanted to enjoy something hearty and very yummy for dinner. Something that would stick to my bones to bless me with a good nights sleep. Kevin ran to the store before he came home from work to check out the meat section at H-E-B. Lamb chops were the winner. They were cut up and packed fresh by the butcher. For dinner, we enjoyed rosemary lamb chops, dill and garlic asparagus, and scalloped potatoes. I’ve been making my scalloped potatoes for years and I can’t believe I haven’t shared my recipe with you guys yet! People would beg me for the recipe whenever I would bring them for a work potluck. They are super simple, you just have to put your time and effort into it. I also wanted to test out our new mandolin. Haha.
January 24th marked a year since I started my blog. I’ve been able to share so much advice and recipes with you guys and it just makes me happy to know how much support I have. I’m up to 1,004 followers which is way more than I’d ever thought I’d have by now. Thank you for visiting my blog for the last year! I did take a small break of blogging for the past few weeks. I’m telling you, this third trimester sure is kicking my butt, but I’m back and ready for action!
When it comes to lamb, Kevin and I usually do chops or steaks. We got some natural grass fed lamb scallopini cuts from our local meat market to try something new. Pasta was the plan and we made it happen. It was a delicious linguine, topped with seared lamb scallopini, tossed in a light lemon butter garlic sauce. Here is how we did it.
Now that Kevin works a shift where he can actually cook my pregnant and hungry self a yummy dinner, he’s been throwing down in The Moore Kitchen. Today we ran to H-E-B, our local grocery store and picked up some beautiful prime filets. He cooked and seasoned them perfectly. Along with those, we enjoyed some roasted rainbow carrots and yummy red potatoes. We did almost burn the house down at one point, but I’ll get more into that later. Here’s how he cooked this perfect dinner.
Baked chicken is one of my go-to meals for when I don’t want to do too much for dinner. I use the same cooking method every time, but sometimes I switch it up with a different glaze or sauce. Sometimes I just season it and leave it without a sauce, sometimes I do a lemon or herb sauce. Tonight I decided to top it with a honey soy garlic glaze. It leaves your taste buds with the perfect amount of savory and sweet and a yummy Asian flair.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. No matter what I always try to eat something, even if I don’t have too much time. Bagels with cream cheese, toast and fruit, anything helps. Making a breakfast scramble is fast and simple and can be customized in any way you want. You can throw it in a tortilla, or just pair it with some fruit and toast. Best of all, you can use whatever ingredients you like to make it your own!
