Garlic Lemon Chicken Stir Fry

I just came back from my lunch break, and according to my car it is 75 degrees out right now.
 
Garlic Lemon Chicken Stir Fry-- a great way to use up fresh spring veggies!
 
I can believe it, because I actually felt the need to turn the air conditioning on.  Then I remembered that my air conditioning is still broken because I always convince myself not to spend the money to get it fixed.

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

As I mentioned in the last post, my birthday is this month!  More specifically, it’s in just over a week, and Easter happens to fall on it this year.  But what does one do to celebrate when they turn 24?  I have no idea.  I should probably figure that out and plan accordingly.

(I won’t until the day of, I’m sure, and then I’ll be upset that it didn’t go how I imagined.  There was a buzzfeed article the other day that talked about the struggles of being both a perfectionist and a procrastinator, and that is the story of my life.)

Cheesy Crab and Artichoke Dip

Even before this dip was ready, I was hovering by the oven, mouth watering, impatiently waiting to dig in and burn the absolute life out of my mouth.  I knew it was going to be good.  It was loaded up with cheese, lump crab meat, and artichokes.  There was no way it was going to be anything but amazing.
 
Cheesy Crab and Artichoke Dip. SWOON.
 
Just look at that golden brown cheese, begging to be broken up by crusty slices of bread.  I can’t believe I even managed to get a picture before shoving it all in my face.  I’m a grown woman and still have no self control when you put something cheesy in front of me.  NO SELF CONTROL AT ALL.
 
I was on a diet for about 15 seconds before this baby came out of the oven.  I ain’t even mad ’bout it.

Garlic-Rubbed Margherita Pizza Grilled Cheese

I’ve been alive for 24 Aprils now (my birthday is this month… yay? boo? I’m not sure how I feel about it), and I’m just finding out that April is National Grilled Cheese Month.  I don’t know why exactly it is that there are food-related holidays, but this is one I can definitely get behind.

Especially if I can use it as an excuse to eat several of these Garlic-Rubbed Margherita Pizza Grilled Cheeses.

Warm Balsamic Steak and Vegetable Medley

Let me be upfront with you:  I had no idea what to call this dish, so if the name of the recipe sounds ridiculous, I’m sorry.
 
At first I was thinking of calling it a “salad” because it technically is one, but I thought that could give people a different impression than what you actually wind up with.  I went with “medley” because it’s literally the only other thing I could think of.  Does it work here?  I have no idea.

One thing I do know for sure is that this medley, or whatever you want to call it, is absolutely delicious.  I got the idea from the Grilled Asparagus Salad from Houlihan’s, which I have consistently craved since it got taken off the menu for (what I hope is) the lack of seasonal availability.
