Do you grow any of your own herbs or vegetables? What's your favorite? (Mine's basil.)
Clockwise from top right:
1. Steak with Chimichurri from The Kitchn with orzo with snap peas. Mmm, chimichurri! It's like pesto's sassy little sister. Made with a mix of fresh herbs, vinegar, lime juice, garlic and a few spices (cumin and coriander), this sauce is the perfect topper for a grilled steak. It's very versatile and would be good with lots of different meats and veggies. As a side, I made some orzo and threw in some snap peas while the pasta cooked. (Two sides in one? Always a win.)
2. Pan-fried flounder with garlic, lemon, and parsley adapted from Love and Olive Oil with oven-roasted fingerling potatoes. The only real adaptation here is that I made this recipe with flounder instead of trout, which is what the original recipe called for. Although I had a bit of a battle with my skillet (I won, thankyouverymuch) this fish was delicious! So light and flavorful.
3. Cheese-stuffed chicken breasts from The Kitchn with roasted asparagus. When a recipe starts with "cheese-stuffed" anything, you can usually count me in. This is a meal that looks relatively fancy (although the plate needs one more thing I think) but was super easy to prepare. After you stuff the chicken with the cheese and toss the asparagus on a sheet pan, the oven does most of the work.
