Whatup mama’s? Ava here.  I am in CT the past 24 hours and thoroughly enjoying myself.  As usual I am not looking forward to heading back to the city tonight.  I just love being in CT in the summer! Home-cooked meals, the beach, visiting friends..it’s just too good.

Last night my mom prepared an amaaaazing dinner with a recipe taken from the most recent issue of Clean Eating Mag.  It was one of those meals that are so good you don’t even take the time to enjoy each bite – just SCARF it down.  Whoops.  Check out the ingredient lists we have here and head to your nearest store to pick them up!

 Usually my mom uses her own adaptations to recipes, but since this was a first-timer, she sticked to the recipe step by step!
On the side we also had a Watercress salad w/ Radish & English Cucumber (see picture).  Perfectly summer-fresh.
Highly recommend this for a family dinner with TONS of flavors in every bite.  Enjoy.
