What's for dinner? {March edition}

Spring Break is over!  Now to catch up!  We had so much fun exploring, sleeping in, crafting, baking, etc that this week has been quite the recovery week.  The house was a disaster (please tell me it's not just me!), and I am exhausted! 

I had all sorts of yummy pictures all ready to post for you, but then Easter came and my computer crashed, and everything. . . most likely gone!  My heart head kind of hurts just thinking about it.  So, it's a good thing that this post is coming up, because I don't need any of my pictures for it.

March was a yummy month!  I made some super yummy things via the wonderful world of Pinterest and some really great fellow bloggers!  What's cooking at your house?

Pesto Pasta with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Asparagus

This wasn't the first time I've made this one.  It's been made many times before, in fact, if you follow me of Facebook, I am sure you've seen me rant and rave about this one.  Seriously, it is so yummy and incredibly easy!  And right now, Asparagus is at it's peak. . . so you should make this now. . . Really!  It's quick, it's easy, and it's great for your meatless Monday line-up!

Lettuce Wraps
So, lettuce wraps are probably one of my most favorite foods.  I am known for just dropping by Dai Bai Dang and ordering some for take-out.  The combination of warm meat mixture with cold, crisp lettuce is like a party on your taste buds.  This recipe is super basic and simple, but super delicious!  It's a regular on our menu!

Thai Peanut Saute
(totally not the best picture!)

I absolutely love Noodles and Company and unfortunately we don't live super close to any.  The day they open one in town, I will celebrate!  When I was in San Francisco last November, I found that they stopped making my usual pasta combo, so I ordered their peanut saute.  It is so yummy!   I like to substitute shrimp instead of chicken. 

Spinach Salad
This spinach salad was so delicious and light!  It was a great hit.  But, my favorite thing about this recipe was the salad dressing. . . an orange poppy-seed vinaigrette. I really couldn't wait to eat the leftovers the next day! And as I am typing this I am wishing I had planned this for next week's menu.
