Clockwise from top right:
1. Easy Lo Mein from Damn Delicious. Stir-fries with rice or noodles are perfect for spring. It's a great way to get in those veggies, plus they come together quickly so you're not spending all evening in front of a hot stove. This one lived up to it's name: it was super easy and tasted great. I added pork (left over from the tenderloin recipe below) and used red bell peppers and snap peas for the vegetables. It would be delicious with any combination of meat (or none) and veggies though.
2. Rosemary Lemon Pepper Roasted Pork Tenderloin from Rachael Ray (365: No Repeats) with lemon parm green beans. Note that this is lemon (zest) and pepper, and NOT lemon pepper, the spice. I'm still a bit wary of lemon pepper since the failed chicken quinoa rice experiment. This oven-roasted pork was light, fresh and juicy tasting, and the green beans (boiled, then tossed in lemon juice, olive oil, and a little parmesan) were the perfect accompaniment.
3. Ham, Cheese and Walnut Pasta from Rachael Ray. Still a family favorite. I can't sing the praises of this dish enough!
What are you in the mood to eat this spring?
