Happy 2016! In case your catching up and missed it this weekend, I have a new feature on the blog: Weekly Meal Plans!

I’m sad the holiday season is over. Mainly because that means I have to go back to work and I can’t lounge at home in my PJ’s all day with my husband and pup. That is literally all we’ve been doing the past two weeks. We even got to sleep in a bit since Winston is older now. It was pure bliss staying under the warm covers until 730am. Now I’m back to waking up at 530am. It was good while it lasted! Did you all have a good holiday season?

ALSO. You guys. Everyone is talking about it and well, so am I. Making a Murderer on Netflix. YOU MUST WATCH IT. Holy mind blowing. It is seriously the most infuriating and sickening thing to watch. It’s so corrupt. We completely binged on it this past weekend. The first couple episodes were a bit slow but as soon as you hit the third one, it gets more and more puzzling and you’re completely invested until the last episode. Gah! So good. What are your thoughts? I’m sure most of you have seen this, right?

This 20-minute sweet and sour harissa chicken with green beans looks fire-breathing hot but it’s actually the complete opposite of that, I promise! It’s also super easy to put together and will come together in about 20 minutes! We put this over a bed of white rice but you can totally eat it as is. Either way you choose, it’ll be one flavorful dish to get on your dinner table!

  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together harissa, honey, and garlic. Set aside.

  4. Serve by itself or over a bed of white rice.
Recipe Notes

I used mild harissa but the brand of harissa I used also comes in spicy. If you like spicy, feel free to use that instead and tailor it to your palate.
