Recipe Round-Up 8.23.15

Hi friends,

As you can imagine, taking a few weeks away from the blog has meant that we have lots of recipes to share. So let's jump right into this recipe round-up and not waste any time.

Beef Enchiladas with Homemade Sauce from 12 Tomatoes [Recipe Round-Up at A Little Seed Grows - Blog]
I pretty much refuse to go out for Mexican anymore because I feel like we can do better at home (and I don't do cilantro), and I'm adding this enchilada recipe with homemade sauce from 12 Tomatoes to the line-up for our Mexican night.

Crockpot Pesto Stuffed Shells from Lauren's Latest [Recipe Round-Up at A Little Seed Grows - Blog]
My best buddy has a birthday next month, and Italian cuisine is his favorite. So we'll need to test drive this recipe from Lauren's Latest for crockpot pesto stuffed shells to see if it's up to snuff for a birthday dinner.

Quick and Easy Nourish Bowls from MJ and Hungryman [Recipe Round-Up at A Little Seed Grows - Blog]

MJ and Hungryman share a quick and easy formula for making nourish bowls, which would make great meals after jujitsu, as well as along with a few of their recent combinations.

Stuffed Bell Peppers with Quinoa, Chickpeas, Basil & Mint from Cherry Blossom Kitchen [Recipe Round-Up at A Little Seed Grows - Blog]
I have wanted to try a stuffed bell pepper recipe for what seems like forever, and I think this recipe from Cherry Blossom Kitchen with quinoa, chickpeas, basil and mint look like a great place to start. It will be perfect for these hot summer evenings.

Fresh Blueberry Ice Cream from Your Homebased Mom [Recipe Round-Up at A Little Seed Grows - Blog]
I received the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid mixer as a birthday gift this month, so I'm itching to start making ice cream. Since we have several pints of blueberries in the fridge, this recipe for blueberry ice cream from Your Homebased Mom seems like a good place to start.

Meal Plan: Week of 8.22.15

Hi, friends!

Wow, did we fall off the face of the earth or what? I have to admit that there wasn't much meal planning at all the last two weeks. But I had time to sit down and make a proper plan and grocery list this weekend, which makes me feel a lot better about the week ahead.

Meal Plan: Week of 8.1.15

Hi, friends!

Sorry about the absence last week; life got in the way, but we're back with another meal plan for the first week of August. Last month went fairly well; I think we only went out to eat twice rather than cooking.

This week's plan is based on what we've received in our Brown Box Veggies today. I must confess that I've never cooked okra before, but we're going to try it out. And you can see from the half empty pan below that tonight's dinner turned out well.
