weekend review: breaking out the grill

Figure 1. Out of the oven: cottage cheese, bacon, sharp cheddar, green onion, and egg casserole.This is a great quick and easy weekday dinner with ~320 calories and ~30 grams of protein per serving.

Figure 2. Thursday night's dinner: cottage cheese, bacon, sharp cheddar, green onion, and egg casserole and asparagus sauteed with smoked paprika.

Figure 3. Saturday morning baking: Amanda's blueberry banana breakfast muffins. I made mine with Truvia baking blend and frozen blueberries. Delicious!

Figure 4. Saturday night's dinner: maple-mustard chicken thighs, broccoli salad, and corn on the cob. This was our first grill meal of the season and these chicken thighs, more specifically this maple-mustard sauce, is one of our favorites. You really must...

Figure 5. Crispy salmon and spinach salad with carrot-ginger vinaigrette with toast and Earth Balance. This was my favorite meal of the weekend - I am pretty sure you could pour this sauce on anything and it would be delicious. You will see this meal again (and soon).


  1. Glad you enjoyed the breakfast casserole!

  2. We broke out the grill this weekend too! Yay, Spring is here!

  3. Already breaking out the grill?! Gah! I can't even tell you how jealous I am. We had a small snow storm this weekend, and I can't wait until corn on the cob weather shows up.

  4. Nothing like the first grill of the season

  5. That casserole reminds me of one my mom used to make. And now I'm craving it! Yum. :)

  6. Toast with Earth Balance >>>
    I can't seem to get enough these days!
