You guys you guys you guys! Monday afternoon I was hanging out, minding my own business, when a giant box arrived at my door. It was a food dehydrator, an early birthday gift from my loving husband! My dreams have come true! Watch for Monday's post when I will give you the lowdown on my new bff and our drying adventures.
Here it is, Easter weekend. It's a holiday but LUNCHES TAKE HOLIDAYS FOR NO ONE. And so the Ladies Who (Make) Lunch soldier on, whipping up tasty things for our families. Here's a quick recipe roundup for spring-like tasty treats you could whip up this weekend. Spoiler alert: my family will be enjoying dried pineapple!
For a quick and tasty lunch, try Dave's Tomato and Cucumber Salad.
For a decadent dessert, try Marilyn's Lemon Marscarpone Cheesecake.
Speaking of lemon, Hannah's recipe for Dorothy's Lemon Muffins are quickly becoming famous. Note: I attempted a vegan version of this recipe yesterday, and it was kind of a bust. So go ahead with the eggs and butter, unless you're looking for a sad, scone-like version.
Do you have some dying bananas hanging around? Try my Very Best Banana Bread (also makes a GREAT lunchbox addition).
This recipe for Strawberries with Cocoa Whip is making me drool.
Too much chocolate this weekend? Get things back on track with a Green Monster Smoothie, or try my friend Lyn's husband's recipe for a super-sour vitamin C rich smoothie:
touch of sweetener
BLEND THAT SUCKER UP, PUCKER UP, BUTTERCUP.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone. Happy lunching!
