Quick one pot dinner! Baked FAJITAS, 25 minutes

IMG_1444
I threw this together hoping it would work and it did, surprisingly! I usually split up a container of chicken breasts and bake it two different ways to make two meals. I did a honey mustard chicken with half and the other half I wanted to do something spicy for fajitas. We had left over onions and peppers so I cut all of them up. We also had some green verde salsa from Trader Joes and some random hot sauce. I threw everything into a casserole dish (with the chicken sliced in the center) and poured salsa and hot sauce generously over everything. It looked like a mess, but 20-25minutes later and only 1 dirty dish, I was sold! These are the kind of meals that I end up making again and again because we don’t have a dishwasher in our apartment! :) This was so easy and delicious! I would have added some green peppers for a little more color, but I used what we had.  Enjoy!

watermelon_YOURS_EVER

For the 4th of July my mom made the cutest snacks–watermelon stars! So unexpected and fun! I’ve been meaning to post it and I figured even though I’m late, summer isn’t over yet!!!! This cute idea would be perfect for any time of the year really: a fun breakfast addition or a kid’s party or play date or just for FUN :) Good for adults too! :)

Directions:
1. // slice watermelon (or another kind of melon) into 1 in thick round slices
2. // press the cookie cutter into the round slice, carefully press out the shape
3. // discard the rind, eat the extra pieces! :)

You can find unique cookie cutters on etsy for cheap! Below are a few I thought were pretty cool. Also, I don’t have kids, but I think any kid would love their name spelled out in watermelon letters, right?! Everyone loves seeing their own name :) :) Batman and lightning bolts are pretty sweet too!
