Happy 11/11/11! And more importantly, Happy Veterans Day to any military-types who might be reading. We thank you for your service.
And I thank you all so much for your responses in the getting to know you post! You really are the most amazing people! (Something I’ll remember before I do another one of those. It’s bad when every single person is far more interesting than the hostess. Just sayin’. ) If you have a few minutes, you might enjoy seeing who you hang out with by reading the comments from that post.
But today is all about 11! To celebrate this auspicious calendar occasion, I have prepared for you a listing of 11 healthy-ish recipes I bookmarked recently:
Bananas Foster Style Cottage Cheese -3 ingredients and a skillet; that’s my kind of recipe!
Lemon Cheesecake Cheese Ball – Lemon, cream cheese, a smidge of sugar and graham crackers. Sounds divine to me.
Frozen Banana Bites – PB&B&Chocolate&Coconut – you don’t have to ask me twice!
Hummingbird Cake Smoothie – Cake in a cup? What could go wrong?
LowFat Irish Soda Bread – I may try this one next week for some toasty breakfast treats.
Apple Slaw with Honey Mustard Dressing – I love slaw; I love apples. This one may make the roster soon, too.
Grilled Chicken with Chipotle Orange Glaze – I’ve made this without the chipotles and can’t wait to try it with them! The next one looks even better.
Spicy Pecan-crusted Chicken – Chicken + Pecans + Orange + Chipotle = ??? But I intend to find out.
Buttermilk Banana Bread – I’ll try this one soon for Christmas-giving-worthiness. And because I’d like some banana bread.
Apple Harvest Cake – I can almost smell the apples and cinnamon now.
Apple Cheddar Salad with Walnuts – Perfect for the Cammy-stirs! Collection. I’ll be having this for lunch today. Oh wait, I ate the last of the walnuts yesterday. Oh well, maybe next week.
And there you have it–11 tastilicious (and mostly healthilicious) recipes for your dining pleasure. Let me know if you make any of them!
That’s it for me for the week! Besides pet-sitting this weekend, I’ll be volunteering at BarCamp Memphis on Saturday. Hope to see any Mid-South readers there!
Before I scoot off to email and blog catch-up, for today’s tip from Serentipity I’ll share a link to yesterday’s post there: Crockpot Recipes: The Slow and Easy Way to Cook. in keeping with today’s theme, don’t you know.
Happy Weekend, everyone!
