On The Menu

Let's be honest, here… it's so incredibly easy to "pin" things without actually ever creating that craft, baking that brownie, or engaging in that exercise regimen that will transform you from ultimate potato to ultimate-beach-babe status. In honor of this fact, next week, I will be featuring a "From Pinterest to Kitchen Table!" post series where I will actually be making three recipes that I've selected from Pinterest!! *cue the applause & whistles of encouragement*

Something you should know about me (pssst...I'm planning on doing a "Fun Facts About The Blogger" post soon - keep your eyes open for it!) is that I am a self-proclaimed "pescatarian", which means that the only "meats" I eat are fish and eggs; other than that, I'm a vegetarian! So, naturally, any recipes that I make will be meatless. <3

Here's what's on the menu for my From Pinterest to Kitchen Table! series for the week ahead:

Monday - Creamy Avocado Pasta 
*via

Wednesday - Baked Salmon with Honey Dijon and Garlic
*via


Friday - Nutella & Peanut Butter Graham Bars w/ Chocolate Frosting
*via

What's on your menu for next week?
xoxo, Brooke

    1. Hahaha, Andrea! I definitely think avocado is an acquired taste!! A few years ago, I -despised- the creamy texture, but now I'm obsessed! <3

  12. Oooh! the nutella and chocolate dessert looks awesome. We don't plan a menu. We just buy food and then just wing it based on what we have on hand. We usually go for quick and easy but tasty! We only plan menus when we are having a get together.

    1. Haha!!! That honestly sounds like me! I rarely ever plan menus, but I realized that I want to try making my meals more balanced (apparently eating tortilla chips & salsa for dinner every night is socially unacceptable!?!?! *sigh* LOL!!), so I'm going to start planning them more often! <3
