Happy Wednesday!

It feels good to be back. You’re probably thinking, “Umm, what?? Where did you go?! You were posting recipes like usual…”

Yes, I was posting recipes (which I’m recapping below) but I took a solid 2.5 week break from working and it was SO needed. A few of those days actually consisted of my husband and I taking a weekend vacation to Mexico without our kids.

What’s crazy is nobody really knows we even went on vacation, and I love that! The only way anyone would know is if they are regular readers of Salt & Baker, AKA reading this right now.

It feels like the norm these days is to share traveling adventures on social media, but I just can’t do it. I don’t know what it is! I find so much happiness in having privacy on my social media accounts. Guess I’m just old school.

Am I totally crazy?!??!

Anyway, my sons had grandma spoiling them for several days. Bronson even told me he wasn’t happy we came home because it meant grandma had to leave.

  1. Do you make fun foods for St. Patrick’s Day? I’ve never been into the corned beef stuff… then again, I’m not sure I’ve tried it. 🤔 HOWEVER, growing up we always had a green dinner (green French toast, green beans, green jello, green juice, etc) and that’s how we “celebrated.”
  2. What I want to know from you is this: do you make anything special for St. Patrick’s Day? It can be something you make leading up to the holiday. Perhaps you make rainbow jell-0, green cupcakes, rainbow Rice Krispies. Let me know in the comments below.
  3. Has your Costco been selling out of particular items the past week? The ones in Houston have. People are stocking up like crazy!

Recent Recipes

Below are recipes shared on the blog over the past 2 weeks. 

  • Healthy Chicken Wraps with Cilantro Lime Sauce – so this recipe is really easy and really good! I hope you give it a try. It’s a great one too, especially for those trying to eat healthy but leave the dinner table FULL!
  • Cacio e Pepe – another REALLY easy dinner idea. Have you had bucatini before? If not, it’s like a spaghetti noodle but it has a hole in down the middle of the noodle. I think I just botched that explanation, but hopefully you can envision what it is. Anyways, this recipe is delish.
  • Acini di Pepe Salad – don’t let the “salad” in the title fool you. This isn’t exactly healthy, but its sure tasty!! Basically it’s small pasta beads tossed in a delicious sauce with mandarin oranges, pineapple, and marshmallows.
  • Buffalo Chicken Dip – anyone else watch March Madness? We do. It’s like a major holiday around our house. This dip will be served at some point! It’s creamy and delicious.
  • Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas – quick and easy meal featuring fresh and vibrant produce.
  • Homemade Fajita Seasoning – you no longer need to purchase the pre-made seasoning packets. This stuff is GOOD!
