Asparagus and Feta Cheese Quinoa Salad

Asparagus and Feta Cheese Quinoa Salad | Real Housemoms

Over Easter weekend we had the entire family together to celebrate my little brother’s wedding.   The weekend kicked off with the Rehearsal dinner, followed by the wedding, a barbecue the next day and a HUGE Easter feast on Sunday.  As you can imagine, I’ve eaten WAY more than I should have.  I need to lighten up so I think I may start out with a Meatless Monday.  I like to have quinoa when I’m not eating meat because it is a great source for plant based protein.

Quick Pesto and Shrimp Pasta

Quick Pesto and Shrimp Pasta_Real Housemoms

Pasta is a great quick meal.  When I’m crunched for time, or just don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking I usually turn to pasta.   Shrimp is the same way.  Great tasting shrimp can be on the table in no time and it always goes over well!  When I was thinking of what to make for dinner the other day I had both on hand and no desire to spend time cooking.   No time to cook doesn’t always mean that you can’t have an amazing dinner!  This Pesto and Shrimp Pasta was so great I couldn’t stop stealing bites of it as I made it.

Strawberry and Lime Moscato Mimosa_Real Housemoms

When my Mom and I get together we like to have mimosas.  It makes sense because mimosas are for special occasions and getting to spend time with family and friends is a special occasion.  My parents have lived in a different state from me since I was 20, so we have a great time and look forward to getting together as often as we can.   We are getting together for my little brother’s wedding Easter weekend and most of my extended family is going to be there also.  It’s going to be a HUGE special weekend and I can’t wait!!!  I wanted to come up with a drink that was special enough for the weekend and this Strawberry and Lime Moscato Mimosa is definitely special!
