Teriyaki Salmon Dinner

Trying to lead by example by eating healthy with my toddler.  Introducing Baby Girl to food has been fun.  So far she is a pretty good eater.  But I mean, look who her parents are. 

One of Baby Girl's favorite is salmon.  This is my favorite too because it is easy to make. 

Teriyaki Salmon

1 salmon filet
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey


1.  Preheat oven to 350F
2.  Spray a 9x13 baking dish with oil.
3.  Mix soy sauce and honey.
4.  Pour over salmon. 
5.  Salt and pepper.
6.  Bake for about 20 minutes depending on oven. 

I served my salmon with rice and green beans. 

Baby Girl gobbled it up. 

Keep cooking friends!

Shrimp Stir Fry

Baby Girl is now 15 months old.  I have lost the pregnancy weight.  However, I am still working on the TTC weight gain.  I have been trying to start 2016 right and meal prep.  January was not that successful at all.  February is not too bad.  I have been trying to use Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration for meal ideas. 

This meal was a hit in my house.  El Husbee and Baby Girl ate it.

Stir fry shrimp with vegetables.  I also tried making rice with frozen vegetables.  It's okay.  I mean not my first choice.  But I am trying to get in as many vegetables as possible. 

Shrimp and Vegetables

1lb shrimp
1lb mushroom
1 onion, small
1 red bell pepper
1lb broccoli
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1.  Rinse and clean shrimp. 
2.  chop up all vegetables
3.  Heat up pan with oil and garlic. 
4.  Once you smell the aroma of garlic put in onions. 
5.  Once the onions are tender put in shrimp.  Cook until pink shows.
6.  Toss in mushroom, red bell pepper, and broccoli.  Put lid on pan.  Cook until broccoli is green. 

Keep cooking my friends!

Valentine's Day

Baby Girl is in daycare and I decided to make Valentine's for her to give her class today. 

These were super easy to make.  Just made the cards on my computer and used Valentine's Day themed washi tape to attach to the individual packs of Teddy Grahams.  Hope her class likes them. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
