Dinner in a flash…

Birthday love!

Do you ever arrive home to find that a gigantic box has been delivered to you…and you can’t recall ordering anything? Then you look closer and suddenly realize a familiar handwriting….CincyBff sent a package!!!! I wanted to rip open the box…but I didn’t want to that box of happiness to be opened just yet…I wanted to savor that moment. I put the scissors down and took a step back. First up, dinner…but I had no time for fussiness…fanciness…or frivolous dishes! I had beautifully wrapped packages beckoning me from the living room!

A winter slaw salad was made on Sunday. Remember those chili chocolate black bean cookies that I tricked..I mean.. fed my family with over the holidays? My New Roots website had this gem as well! Although, I don’t know exactly why I choose this particular recipe in all honesty. It was healthy (chocked full of ┬áraw savoy and red cabbages, kale, carrot, and scallions) and since everyone else in America is turning towards the ‘cleansing’ craze this time of year (*shudder*) and trying to eat healthier, I figured it was a good dinner to have on a Sunday night. So…away I chopped, and chopped and more chopping of vegetables. See?

Sharpen those knives!

And then the tahini dressing ingredients were thrown in a jar. This involved olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, a little agave syrup and water were combined. Dancing commenced…err, I mean…the dressing was blended using a very precise shaking method. And ta-da…

Eat this..and smile. It's healthy!

Tonight I stopped by the local grocery and picked up a piece of haddock. I was encouraged recently to eat more protein each day. Fresh haddock was found. Once home, I sliced onion and lemon slices very thinly put the fish to rest on this bed of goodness. I drizzled a small amount of olive oil over the top, added a little salt, pepper and dill, a sprinkling of panko breadcrumbs and popped it into the oven. That’s it! I baked it at 350* for about 30 – 35 minutes and dinner was served!

...don't forget the side of winter slaw!

And here I am. I find myself surrounded every day by acts of kindness, thoughtfulness, love and generosity. I would like to think that we are all embracing the positively radiant energy from within ourselves and spreading it outwards for others to grasp onto. Maybe…just maybe? Have a great week readers!
