Recipe Round Up: July

I'm excited to share my favorite recipes from this month with you.  We've been working hard to eat colorful meals, eat real food and to enjoy healthier options.  I would say we did a pretty good job all month long.  We ate out more than usual because we moved last week, but what do you do?  I still cooked a fair amount before things got boxed up.
Here are our favorite recipes:

These are a family favorite that we often have for dinner when we're in the mood for breakfast for dinner.

I purchased the small precooked/presliced hams at the grocery store.  I just sprinkled a little brown sugar on the slices as they cooked and added in some pineapple chunks.  The sugar caramelized and we ate the warm pineapple as a side.  It was such an easy meal and was so delicious.  We had enough ingredients to eat this 2-3 times.

I've mentioned before that my family loves any type of Mexican food.  We eat it regularly and so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare our favorite ingredients.  You'll just need
soft taco shells
taco meat
and all of your favorite fixings

I have been stocking my fridge with lettuce and tons of salad fixins each week.  I usually eat each salad 1-3 times and make sure to switch it up so I don't get bored of eating the exact same salad every day.  
Grilled Chicken Pesto Salad was a hit.  I just added pesto to grilled chicken and cooked pasta a mixed it until it was evenly spread out.  Then I chopped veggies, lettuce and topped it with my pesto mixture.  It ended up being a little dry so I drizzled some Italian dressing on and it was perfect.
