Most likely 75% of us are in the throes of year-end recital preparation in our studios. As you plan, here are some resources to help you along the way.
This week, I’ve grouped them into themes to make them a little easier to absorb. But first – a couple of other goodies! 🙂
#1 Recipe Wins of the Week
Balsamic Roast Beef (Add a Pinch)
A lovely simple roast recipe. We had it alongside Braised Green Cabbage (Nom Nom Paleo)
Put the roast in the crockpot at lunchtime and prep the cabbage dish. Put it in the fridge and pop it in the oven between lessons two hours before you finish for the day.
Maple Mustard Vinaigrette (The Flour Handprint)
I have put off making this salad dressing forever but not again! Wow. Delicious, low in sugar, and easy to make. You’ll cover 1-2 weeks of side salads with this recipe.
Use a pint-size mason jar to mix in. I used a half-pint and it was a little tight!
High Protein Oat Waffles (Skinny Taste)
My husband and I enjoyed these waffles even more than Belgian waffles! Delicious, easy, and healthy to boot! Who needs waffles for breakfast? Not us. We had them for lunch! 🙂
Skillet Mushroom Chicken Thighs (Damn Delicious)
Seriously yummo. If you let it simmer for a few extra minutes, it really makes the “gravy” nice and thick. Serve it with roasted green beans and a simple side salad for a well-balanced meal. (Mashed potatoes would be nice with it as well!)
