Great Picks

Happy Friday everyone!
Just 8 more hours, and we will officially be enjoying the weekend!

Anyone have big plans for the weekend? I'm going to take full advantage of having nothing planned, sit back and relax! I have been wanting to finish the book I am reading, sounds like the perfect weekend to do that! Tonight is my sisters last night home, so I am looking forward to spending some time with her before she leaves.

Speaking of my sister she picked two fabulous recipes to make this week! I will be adding these recipes to the list of keepers!
Great job sissy!

Let's start with this one!

This salad was full of flavor from the cilantro and lemon and I loved the avacado. My sister used black quinoa which I had never had before gave the salad a nice look! This would be an easy salad to throw in a lunch box, or an easy meal for a hectic night! Loaded with protein from the chickpeas and quinoa and healthy fats from the avocado this is one nutrient packed salad!

Now let's talk about these burritos.
Greek Burritos (from Kokocooks) to be exact!
Hands down I would eat this over a regular Mexican burrito any day! My sister subbed in grilled chicken in place of the lamb and then finished it off in a pan with the spices. Delicious! She said she used a bit more tomato paste and added our favorite Greek seasoning to give the dish a little kick of flavor! Homemade tzaziki sauce, fresh cucumber, tomatoes, and a sprinkle of feta made for some happy taste buds! As we sat around the dinner table talking about the meal we also decided the chicken served with pita bread and hummus would be a delicious idea as well! 

Looking for a a tasty dinner, make those burritos!  You won't be sorry! 

So there you have it! Two recipes from my lovely sisters pin board!  Thanks Sissy!
