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.

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!

Cucumber & Tomato Salad

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Hallelujah for wanting to eat fresh, cool salad again…those winter months were rough!

Here is a new salad we put together when we were out of regular leafy greens…we found you can still have amazing side salad to go with any meal and it’s always nice to mix things up.boxwood clippings | cucumber and tomato salad
INGREDIENTS

grilled chicken
tomatoes
cucumbers
red onion
avocado
cilantro
olive oil
1/2 lime
s+p

DIRECTIONS

Amounts of ingredients is all about preference. But we’ve discovered this kind of salad tastes better the smaller you dice everything up…more flavor punch to bite ration :) Dice vegetables and toss with olive oil, lime juice and salt and pepper.

Enjoy with any grilled chicken/fish…really you could pair this with anything!
