menu recap [week 24]

daisi - June 15, 2012

So here’s what I made this week so far. I will definitely be cooking Saturday after my first trip to the farmers’ market this year, but I have no clue what it will be just yet. I’ll share if it’s good! Seriously, this week’s meals were so delicious and pretty light/healthy-ish.

Monday: Chicken & Avocado Salad with Lime & Cilantro

Saw this on Sunday, made it on Monday and I am so glad I did. The only modification I made was I added a jalapeno for crunch and spice. This salad is perfect – easily adaptable to your tastes (a friend added mushrooms & asparagus) and you can make it in about 4 minutes. I like that it’s healthier than most of the creamy chicken salads because you are using avocados rather than tons of mayo. This is definitely a keeper recipe.

Tuesday: Thunder game and grilled chicken with roasted vegetables at Nick & Jess’s

Wednesday: leftovers from Monday’s chicken salad and I also got to enjoy the LMFAO concert thanks to my BFF Jess. It was an all night dance party and we had a blast!

Thursday: Lime Chicken Melts

I made this one up using practically the same ingredients from Monday’s meal. I’ll share the recipe VERY soon. Trust me, you’ll want to make it.

Friday: Mom date night at Juniper

We bought our moms Jersey Boys tickets for Christmas and it was finally time to see the show. Sam and I saw it in NYC during his last spring break of dental school and absolutely loved it. I knew our moms would love it too so as soon as we saw it was making a stop in Tulsa, we snatched up some front row tickets! Dinner and a show… a perfect combination. Juniper is very close to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center and it’s ridiculously good so it was the obvious choice for the pre-show meal. Plus, Sam has never been and I’ve only been once so we needed to go any way.

That’s it for this week. Hope you enjoy the recipes as much as I did!
