I know, I know! It’s a little late for a dinner recipe tonight, right? I definitely dropped the ball on this one (a sports reference? who am I?). Consider these five recipes a mix-and-match type of game for the week… and then one can roll over for another day!
This past weekend ended up being much more crazy than anticipated, and we got home late from a wedding Sunday night. It was a beautiful celebration up north, but sadly we couldn’t stay too long because of the drive back. I was scrambling all day today to get organized at work despite my lack of sleep.
Anyway, I’ve had this end of summer herby chicken chili pot in my head for a week now. I mean, can you blame me?
I’m not quite as excited about the “end of summer” part of the recipe name, however. I want to hang on to this perfect (read: hot) weather as long as possible! I do love fall, just not what comes after it in Colorado. Right now the only bright side to those impending freezing temperatures will be lots of new soup recipes.

Have you ever walked through the airport carrying a big box of doughnuts?
It’s amazing how many people commented as we carried our bright pink Voodoo doughnut box on the plane this past weekend. They are crazy good and it was definitely worth it to bring them to family. And, it made for such a funny traveling experience.
A long weekend always makes Mondays a little easier AND a little more difficult. It was so nice being home, but now it’s back to the grind. And back to the gym… and away from the doughnuts (at least for this week). Healthy, homemade dinners help with this transition!

Happy Monday! I found this on Pinterest and LOVE it:
It’s amazing how creative you can be with food! Clearly, I need to step up my photography game.
Anyway, I am so excited for the Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps for dinner tonight. And, tacos and turkey burgers later in the week. I’ve been totally spoiled with fun “foodie” trips lately – and have another one coming up – so I’m trying to keep weeknight dinners a little bit easier and healthier.
To prep for the week, I made a batch of this granola last night. I want to make this homemade salsa again soon too – it’s so simple and delicious! Much better than store bought salsa. Pioneer Woman wins again!
