The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Guacamole Pasta

I've been a bit sporadic with my posts lately, we've been having fun (and eating well) with visitors from the East Coast.

A good friend was here last weekend, and my parents the past few days...they have been spoiling us with some delicious dinners out. Last Friday we haddinner at Ray's Boathouse, where we enjoyed some of the first Copper River Salmon that arrived in Seattle. Copper River Salmon is a big deal around here...it literally gets red carpet treatment when it gets off the plane from Alaska.

Now for all of you guacamole lovers...onto the pasta!

 

Guacamole Pasta

 

We all can use a little more avocado in our lives. So I figured why not combine two of my favorites, guacamole AND pasta. No regrets there!

I basically used the ingredients I use in my guacamole, added some olive oil and pasta, and there you go. Easy as that, and I can't leave out how the avocados helped give the pasta a delicious creamy texture. I was

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

 

I'm alive! Swimming in boxes, busy unpacking and enjoying my favorite time of year, March Madness. I can't get enough college basketball this time of year. Big Kansas fan here, Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Once I get unpacked and get my kitchen in order, which requires a trip to The Container Store, I'll be back in action and posting more regularly. I'm still figuring out how to do my food shopping, so many options with Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Safeway, Amazon Fresh and of course the farmer's markets. 

Anyway, onto this dish that was inspired by Gaby's BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad. I've had the urge to stuff an avocado for awhile now and once I saw her BBQ Chicken Quinoa it was fate, that is what my avocado would be stuffed with. Despite not looking that pretty, it was delicious! This is a

Avocado Toast with Tomato

Avocado Toast with Tomato

I love avocados, and based on all of the visits and love I have received on this Avocado Chicken Salad post, you guys do too. I'm really glad we could find that common ground, I really see us having a future together.

This is a simple recipe that works for a healthy breakfast, lunch, a snack or even a light dinner. You could also leave the cheese off to make it even healthier. I had some pepper jack cheese on hand though and couldn't resist! I'm a sucker for cheese, especially if it adds some spice.

Here's the recipe for 1 toast, but I'm warning you know, you will most likely want to make more than 1!

Spicy Tequila Lime Shrimp Tacos

Spicy Tequila Lime Shrimp Tacos

I've been going wild with Avocado this past week, thanks to my shipment from California Avocados Direct! So this will just be one of several upcoming posts that involves this delicious fruit. Yes avocado is actually a fruit despite many of us thinking it's a vegetable, I just had to use Google to make sure I got that correct. Shrimp was on sale so I decided to go with some simple and light shrimp tacos and give them a little kick with hot sauce. Shrimp is great for a weeknight dinner because it cooks up so quick and it's packed full of protein. These tacos were extremely easy to make and had great flavors.

Plus, with the extra tequila you can make yourselves

Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich

Avocado Chicken Salad

So that is a picture of what I've been eating for lunch all week. It's a chicken salad sandwich that involves avocado and chipotle mayo. If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle so I've been a pretty happy camper this week.  

Avocados add a nice creamy texture so you can add less mayo, which means it's a healthier option than chicken salads that are normally loaded with mayo. I was a little hesitant that Mr. KMW would boycott this sandwich since he LOVES mayo, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I caught him eating it out of a jar with a spoon like ice cream, but he is a huge fan of this lightened up version.

Another great thing about this chicken salad is that I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make. Are you sold yet? You should be. Here's the recipe. As always, taste as you go and adjust ingredients accordingly.
