Our Favorite Fish Dish

Friday, April 14th, 2017

One of our favorite meals lately has been fish and veggies.
High protein, low carb and calorie, and easy, easy, EASY!

We have been loving frozen individual packaged and portioned tilapia. We thaw the night before in the fridge and put them in the oven for 30 minutes with whatever veggies we have in the fridge. Sarah makes a tasty dilly dip that makes the fish and veggies extra tasty: 1/3 c mayo, 1/2 lemon, dash of dried dill.

Easy, healthy and delicious, it’s a winner and we hope you’ll give it a try.

Low Carb Cucumber and Turkey Sandwiches

Friday, April 7th, 2017

As the weather warms up we’re looking to try new things for lunch. With Em being gluten free and both of us trying to be a little more carb conscious we tried these cucumber sandwiches.

We sliced an English cucumber thinly, spread with plain cream cheese and layered with Columbus brand turkey. We garnished with a little dried dill and that is all! We can imagine these being amazing midsummer after a morning at the pool, and also great for a little low carb snack any time.

We hope you have a lovely weekend!

Hummus for Lunch

Friday, March 24th, 2017

To balance out our insane Cadbury Mini Egg consumption as of late we are really trying to boost our veggies!
We are a thousand times more successful at this when we have an appealing bowl of hummus at hand.

Our men aren’t huge fans of hummus so we’ve been pulling it out at lunch, serving it with veggies, rotisserie chicken and flat bread for a crazy easy lunch for us and our girlies. We have a feeling this zero-cooking lunch is going to become a staple for the Spring and Summer months.

We’ve just been buying Costco or a plain hummus from the store, do you have a favorite or a good recipe we can try?

Thanks in advance,

Get your Cheese on Paddy!

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

If you fancy getting your Irish on this week, look no further than your Dairy section!

We are half Irish and love a good Irish product. Kerrygold’s Dubliner cheese is always heavenly but we’ve just found their spreadable cheese (by mistake) which has made it to our favorite list quickly…and just in time for St Paddy’s Day!

Spread with crackers, paired with raw veggies, or extra naughty on a slice of fresh baguette… it’s the perfect afternoon snack for you and the kiddos.

We found ours at Costco for only $5.50, they also have carry Kerrygold butter which is to die for…

To see our other posts about Ireland check out our “Dublin on a Dime Post” or “Get the Look of an Irish Cottage”.

Top of the Morning to you all! Have a wonderful Day!

For Halloween this year we headed to our sister’s house for trick or treating. We started the night with bobbing for apples and soups for dinner. I had been wanting to try THIS recipe and it turned out so good and all the family loved it. It’s so easy and delicious I wanted to share it with you too!

I’ll definitely be adding it to the meal plan for an easy dinner in these winter months.
