Oh, how pinteresting...

So lately I have been trying to be on a high(er) protein diet. This means that I am eating a lot, a lot of meat. Since I was a vegan/vegetarian for about 15 years of my life, I have no working knowledge on how to prepare meat. Or what to do with prepared meat.

This makes for a sad husband.

I have basically made him cook all forms of meat that we have been eating (except fish. I got that down) and haven't figured out how to make any interesting meals with this new addition to my diet. So the past few days I have been scouring pinterest to find some new recipes so my husband likes my cooking again.

Disclaimer: the problem with hanging out on pinterest all day looking at recipes is that you find a lot of awesome recipes you want to eat right away. Not all of these recipes have meat in them and some are even deserts. But a few have meat and thus serves my purpose.

Broccoli Cheese Bites

I love me some broccoli and cheese. Mostly cheese.

Honey Lime Shrimp

I bought a lot of frozen shrimp at Sam's Club last week and we haven't eaten it yet because the husband keeps telling me it needs a sauce. Now that I have successfully found a 'sauce,' we can finally start eating our two year supply of shrimp.

Pretzel Bites with Cheese Sauce

Not a meal by any means and doesn't include meat, but if I make these, I will be a hero to my husband.

Chocolate Chunk Muffins 

Chocolate. Chunk. Muffins. 100 calories. 

That's all we really need to know.

Avocado Egg Salad

It is a widely known fact that avocados are in my top five of favorite foods. Put avocado in a recipe and I am all over that.

White Chicken Chili

We have been eating a lot of turkey chili around here, so it might be appreciated to switch it up to another meat chili. I feel like there is an obscene amount of cheese in this recipe though. And sour cream. Might downsize that amount quite a bit.

Pizza Muffin Bites

It is a widely known fact that my husband's favorite food is pizza. I will be glorified if I pack him little portable pizzas in his lunch.
