Arugula Pesto

I got a little excited last weekend at the farmer's market and bought way too much produce. Half way through the week I realized there was no way I'd be able to finish up all the arugula I bought before it wilted. I thought about making an arugula pesto and came across this recipe. It had a few more steps to it than many other, where the arugula is not blanched. However, i liked the idea of taking some of the kick out of the arugula. This pesto goes great on pasta, spaghetti squash or as a pizza sauce.

Salmon Souvlaki Bowls

I made this recipe one night when I wanted to attempt a healthier dinner after a few days of eating terribly. I found this recipe and thought the idea of a "bowl" for dinner sounded great. Though couscous is not exactly the healthiest thing, it's still better than lots of other options- and this was delicious. I set up a build-it-yourself style dinner with all the bowl condiments in a line and everyone built their bowls how they preferred them. Personally I love tzatziki and would use more than most people, so I made more than the recipe asks for. You can't ruin this recipe and feel free to adjust based on your preferences. The fish turns out very flavorsome and your can grill it to your preferred level of doneness (I like mine still slightly rare on the inside).
