It's A Blue (Recipe) Day



It has been so nice to look out of our window this week and see sunshine and blue skies. Although in the present situation movement for many is restricted, it can and does help boost our mood! Apparently blue is the favourite colour of all people, and it’s nature’s colour for water and sky. But it was seeing this blue sky that inspired this 'it's a blue (recipe) day post' ... if you have a look at the recipes, they all have a blue theme!

By the way the first image was taken from google, but it's nice to imagine you are out enjoying a walk... 

I do hope you may enjoy these three recipe ideas. You will find many food and recipe suggestions within this blog, but not all recipes may be suitable for you. Any food allergies, or underlying health issues must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

Oh, Jan! Now I'm so hungry and need to grocery shop. The only problem of course is what they have available. I always enjoy reading your recipes.

Take care, and stay as safe as possible.

That chicken dish looks yummy and this word nerd loves the etymological part of the post as well! Thanks for posting and stay safe!

Mary Kirkland said...

All of those dishes look good.

Sure looks delicious!
Keep on keeping on 💮

Oh blue cheese, how I love thee. That's one cheese I won't make at home...yet. Apparently when you make it the mould spores travel everywhere. Cheese makers advise that you don't make blue cheese the same day you make bread or your bread will taste like it! I never knew that!

Laurie said...

Sounds amazing! The walk and the food! Have a great day, the best you can in these trouble times,

Blue skies are not here today, but we enjoyed a wonderful week of them, so I won't complain. Chicken cordon bleu looks delicious!

Yum.

NCmountainwoman said...

I'm definitely going to try the chicken. Such an easy way to make such a complex dish.

I hope the sun keeps shining on you.
I think my favourite colour is green, but blue has its charms too.

sandy said...

love the recipes - we were just talking about having a wedge salad with blue cheese dressing soon. Chicken cordon blue - a favorite And if that photo is looking out from where you live, WOW...beautiful.

The good part is the weather is getting nicer. The recipes look delicious.

It may be blue, but everything is incredibly colorful. Stay safe, dear Jan. Enjoy the sun while you can.

Kay said...

Thank goodness, my blood sugar has been lower the last two weeks after I stopped any dessert after dinner. I should have known better.

Sue said...

Ooh lovely recipes! I like a (small) amount of blue cheese and chicken is always my favourite. Take care and stay safe, Sue xx

Lettuce and blue cheese. Marvellous. What a wonderful combination.

Thanx Jan. God bless.

Angie said...

Yum yum. All of these recipes look good, but I am especially drawn to the Wedge Salad right now. Stay well out there!

We had approximately 5 minutes of sunshine today...the first we have seen in days. I am hoping tomorrow there will be more.

Lovely blue skies in your photo, Jan. And you are so correct, even if it's through the window seeing sunshine and blue skies does lift up the mood. As always, thank you for the mouth-watering recipes; lettuce and blue cheese, especially...yum!

Hope you're making the best of the spring season, regardless.

I love the chicken recipe. I don't have everything I need, but I do have cooked chicken and cheese. I will improvise, which seems to be the theme of this era. Take good care and appreciate your visit.

Conniecrafter said...

We have had a lot of rain lately and gray skies so it is a treat when we have seen the sun, even if we happen to get an hour of it a day it is so thankful!
Hope you are all staying safe!
