Hatch Chili and Heirloom Tomato Couscous Salad - #MeatlessMonday Link Up

Tasty Hatch chiles, succulent heirloom cherry tomatoes, and creamy avocado make a delicious dressing for couscous in this refreshing, summer time Hatch Chili and Heirloom Tomato Couscous Salad!

Yes, I know. This is a #meatfree recipe but there's meat in the picture. Just hear me out. As you can see, it’s just the tuna and the salad. And there’s quite a bit of salad. It honestly could have been a meal in and of itself, it was that tasty and filling. So, while there’s tuna in the picture, you can easily have this Hatch Chili and Heirloom Tomato Couscous Salad as a delicious, light, cool salad for a dinner on a hot summer night. Cook the couscous beforehand so it’s nice and cool and you’ve got dinner on the table in less then 10!

#EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Food Thermometer


I suck at cooking meat. Really. No matter how many times I try the touch and feel test for a steak, I fail, MISERABLY. I can’t tell by touch, look, or smell as to when meat is cooked properly. I just don’t have those skills. So, when EatSmart offered up their Precision Pro Digital Thermometer, I JUMPED at the chance!

#Meatfree Ratatouille Stir-Fry PLUS a #MeatlessMonday Link Up!!

Traditional ratatouille is turned into a quick and easy stir-fry in this deliciously hearty #MeatlessMonday meal.

I see all these gorgeous pictures of ratatouille on Bloglovin, Pinterest, Facebook. They’re killing me! They look fabulous and delicious and I honestly don’t have the time, even WITH my mandolin to slice all those veggies, put them in a tureen, and bake them. Yup. I’m lazy. I accept it, I own it, I find ways to get the same taste of out of quick and easy recipes.
