You guys. I’m bringing you a super duper easy meal. Like ‘oh my gosh I ate too much food at Thanksgiving and DO NOT feel like cooking‘ meal. And bonus – it can be made in 30 minutes of less!
I’m curious – did you guys go shopping on Black Friday? I’m personally not a Black Friday shopper. Well, I guess maybe I’ve evolved with the times and I definitely perused the online deals with my sweatpants on and big cup of coffee on Friday morning, but no way was I going to stand in lines at the store. I know some folks love it, and that’s great, but it’s definitely not for me.
And I’ll be honest – the fact that some stores opened at 3pm on Thursday (looking at you, JC Penny’s!), is just a bit much to me. I mean, I have to wonder – do they have that many employees that are happily willing to sacrifice their holiday to go work those massive crowds?
I’ll was happily at home in my leftover turkey coma on Thursday evening.
Turkey coma or not, it’s so fun to eat all of the delicious fixings that grace the table at Thanksgiving, but the tricky part is getting back on track afterwards.
Not long after Thanksgiving the business of holiday cookies begins and bakers from your family, to your friends, to your coworkers are lining up with their delicious baked goods. I don’t blame you for wanting to give into a freshly baked sugar cookie shaped like a snowman; I don’t usually have the willpower either.
What I do have now, that I didn’t have in the past, was the forethought to know that if I’m going to eat those delicious cookies, bars and treats, it’s super important that I eat cleaner and healthier for my meals. Balance.
And I’ll concede that steak isn’t the healthiest of the meats, but feel free to sub it out for chicken, shrimp, or even leftover turkey if you’d like!
And don’t be scared if that there isn’t a sauce on this bowl – the garlic powder, salt and pepper and perfect, and the blue cheese melts in your mouth with it’s intense flavor.
If you’re wondering why in the world I cooked radishes for this then let me the first the introduce you to the fact that cooked radishes go GREAT in veggie mixes! I discovered cooked radishes when I made my Chicken, Zucchini and Radish Kabobs with Sweet Chili Sauce. Amazing. Try it.
