September Recipe Review

This month consisted of a bunch of really yummy and really easy meals, which I love. My favorite by far, which I plan on making on the reg now, was this one dish garlic & herb pork tenderloin by The Seasoned Mom. The best part, besides the one dish deliciousness, is that there is almost zero prep with the pre-marinated pork tenderloin. It's also a really quick 30 minute meal, so great for after work.  On our potatoes and carrots, we used our favorite seasoning, Charlie's Choice {the spicy one of course!}. Charlie's Choice was actually a part of a wedding gift, and it truly changed our kitchen. I use it on everything, but especially potatoes. It's become my go-to for seasoning salmon as well!

To go with our easy dish, I whipped up some creamy cheesy spinach that was a recipe from my friend Kim at one of my bridal showers! I honestly wish I had made more, and it was the perfect rich, green, compliment to our dish. The meal as a whole also saved really well, and was what I craved every day for lunch for days after which is rare for me as I can't really deal with leftovers.

After a month of really great work news for CJM, I wanted to celebrate, and thought scallops for dinner one Friday night would be just the way to do that! I purchased some frozen scallops from our local meat market, thawed them, and then cooked them following this recipe I found on Pinterest. Amazing! I added red pepper flakes to the mix, and it was soooooo good. We ate all of the scallops that night!
With the scallops we had roasted asparagus, tossed with Charlie's Choice again, and baked parmesan sweet potatoes. These were yummy, and made a lot which packed well with some grilled chicken for lunches during the week.  


Who's excited for October tomorrow? I am!! It's birthday month, and I'll be turning 25. Goodness...I remember when 25 felt so old, and I still remember 16 entirely too well!
