Inspired by my Pinterest board appropriately titled, "Fab Inspiration" I thought it would be a great idea to bring some inspiration to the blog!  Be sure to check the blog every Monday for fabulousness. 

Whew! Being a fabulous woman is a full time job. I sent this text to someone 5 months ago and I recently found it again. As soon as I read it I knew I was going to save it for Fab Inspiration Monday's. 

I had to learn and am still learning that sometimes, you can be too much for some people.  You can be too much for a guy, a friend, or even a job. And thats perfectly OK! Don't let anyone make you feel bad or inadequate because your shine is too much for their eyes. 

Don't Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle!

FAB RECIPE: CHICKEN SOUVLAKI & TZATZIKI SAUCE WITH GUEST FOOD BLOGGER APRIL W.

Eating Fab welcomes Guest Food Blogger April Wardlaw of April's Cookin' & owner of  Popcorn Queens 

My whole life I’ve been obsessed with Greek culture. The history, the Gods and of course, the food!  I was lucky to vacation in Athens, Greece and even though that was a few years back, Greek ingredients and the cooking techniques still remain with me till this day.  

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki is a traditional Greek entrée that is flavorful, satisfying and healthy. To give a quick translation, souvlaki is a marinated chicken kabob and tzatziki is a traditional sauce made of Greek yogurt and cucumbers.  This recipe is great to grill outdoors and enjoy the last few weekends of summer that we have left. Also, I typically accompany this dish with my Greek Orzo Salad, which makes a great side. You can find this additional recipe here on my blog  



Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce 

Ingredients: (Serves 4-5)

1-1 ½ lb Chicken Tenders

juice and zest of 1 lemon 

 2 Cloves Garlic, minced

2 teaspoon Dried Oregano or Sage

½ teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper (1 tsp if you like more heat)

½ teaspoon Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

1 tablespoon Kosher Salt

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup Tzatziki Sauce, for serving (recipe below)


Directions: 

Add chicken tenders into a large ziplock bag or bowl.  Then, in a small bowl, add 

lemon juice and zest, minced garlic, oregano, red pepper, black pepper, and salt.  

Slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking everything together.  Pour marinade over 

chicken and make sure all pieces are completely coated.  Seal the bag, or cover bowl 

with saran, place in refrigerator and marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

When ready to grill, remove chicken from the refrigerator and allow it to come to 

room temperature.  Next preheat your indoor or outdoor grill to medium high.  

While waiting for the grill to heat up, thread chicken on wood or metal skewers.  

Grill chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side.  Serve immediately with Tzatziki sauce.



Tzatziki Sauce

Ingredients: (makes approx. 1 cup)

6 oz Plain Greek Yogurt

1/3 of an English Cucumber*

1 teaspoon Dried Dill Weed (if using fresh dill use 1-2 tablespoons, chopped)

1 Clove Garlic, minced

Salt & Pepper To Taste

Splash of Fresh Lemon Juice

*English cucumbers are larger and sold covered in plastic wrap.  These have a very 

thin skin that does not require peeling.  If using a regular cucumber, use half and be 

sure to peel first.


Directions:

Add Greek yogurt to a small bowl.  Using a cheese grater, grate cucumber onto a 

small cutting board.  Give the cucumber a rough chop and add to the yogurt.  Next 

add in dill, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice and stir to combine.  Cover and chill in the 

refrigerator for at least an hour, but this sauce stays fresh in the fridge for up to 1 

week.

IT'S OUR 6TH BIRTHDAY!

Eating Fabulously, Christopher Stewart, 6th birthday, happy birthday, blog birthday

It's our birthday! I couldn't be happier for Eating Fabulously to turn 6 years old today. I always think back to when I started eating fab and I thought to myself,  "no one is going to read what Im writing about". Little did I know I wasn't starting a blog but I was on the path to starting a lifestyle. Eating Fabulously isn't just a food blog, its a lifestyle and I am so thankful.
                                                                                                                                     -Christopher

I know Im not the only one that does this. Focus so much on where Im not at the moment or where I should be that I lose track of how far I have come, up until this point. We have these age limits and time limits that we set for ourselves with a laundry list of things we should have accomplished and of course society and social media don't help.

For this week's fab inspiration Monday's don't be so hard on yourself, your getting there! Focus on taking strides and crossing 1 thing off of your to-do list at a time. Celebrate small success and remember, your not as far behind as you imagine you are.
