Fall Corn Salad

Peyton has always loved corn. I think he could eat corn every day and not get sick of it. I look for different ways to make it, that way it isn’t the same all the time.

A few months ago we went to MOD Pizza and they had a corn salad… That Peyton put on top of this pizza. He absolutely loved it. So we decided to experiment at home, and come up with our own corn salad recipe.

We call it Fall corn salad but it can be eaten year round! 😄  This recipe can be a topping on Naan -bread… Or as a stand-alone side dish.

As with all recipes… Make sure you check for any food allergies and make sure your food is fresh!

This is a pretty simple recipe to make… Hope you all enjoy! We love feedback on our recipes too!

Please don’t forget to check out Peyton‘s small business at https://teamawesomism.com/where we will be having some online cooking classes soon, as well as more awesome recipes, that he has made!

Fall Corn Salad:

2 cups corn.. We use frozen corn… That we have cooked

Easy Chicken Salad on Naan Bread

Living in Texas it gets really hot… And sometimes I just like a really nice cold salad… And I love a salad on a great piece of Naan bread. I made this recipe one night when I was really in the mood for  chicken salad and Naan Bread! So I threw this together with items I had in the pantry and refrigerator.. it was quick,easy and super delicious.

It’s great for lunch and or dinner, it’s perfect for days that you don’t have a lot of time, but want something semi-healthy, and really flavorful! 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

•You can either use one can of 12.5 oz chunk chicken or Pan fry a chicken breast, cut up into chunks. I love using extra lean chunk chicken from the can.

•1/3 cup chopped red onion

•1/3 cup Reduced sugar Craisins

•1 small tomato chopped in small cubes

•1/3 cup skim mozzarella shredded cheese

•3 heaping Tablespoons of olive oil mayonnaise

•1Tablespoon of lowfat Italian dressing

•Fresh Ground Pepper to taste

Mix all the above ingredients together in a medium-size bowl. Cover bowl with lid and put in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours to chill.

Serve on fresh Naan bread. This recipe makes enough for four chicken salad Naan bread servings.

I love serving fresh peaches on the side with this… And a little bit of cinnamon to the peaches, and you have a perfect meal!

Taco Shells “Taco night brings the
(blended) family together!”
“Getting the hang of making these tacos! Fun, Simple & easy
for this busy, full-time working mom AND my kids love
them!” ~Nicole Lemire (Mike’s ex wife!)
Here is what you need:
● Corn Tortillas (we love sprouted corn tortillas)
● Avocado or Grapeseed Oil (higher smoke point)
● Garlic Salt
● Limes (optional but highly recommended)
1. Fill a small frying pan with oil and turn on medium heat*
2. Add 1 tortilla and cook on both sides until lightly crispy
3. Remove from oil and fold in half with 2 forks to create a shell
4. Sprinkle with garlic salt to taste
5. Half of our house likes to top our taco shells with fresh lime juice
*Depending if you are using electric or gas stove, you may have to
play with the correct temperature setting to set the oil for optimal
cooking of your shells. We use medium heat on a gas stove.
We usually go through a ton of tacos on taco night so add more oil
to your pan as needed. We like our tacos with ground turkey or my
crockpot whole chicken, black beans, cheese, avocado, tomatoes,
Sriracha and lactose free sour cream.
