My passions have turned back to the kitchen. As I sit in my apartment typing to you all I can smell the earthy scent of a roast chicken in the oven mixing with the lingering curry from dinner. I leave you with a few dishes we’ve enjoyed over the past few weeks:
Salmon Cakes on Rye Crackers with Aoili Sauce and Sautéed Tomatoes and Mushrooms.
A fun table setting for an impromptu dinner party. On the menu: Homemade Caesar Salad with Garlic Shrimp and Home Fries (complete with three dipping sauces).
Homemade Pita Chips served with my grandmother’s salsa.
Spanish Eggs Benedict: Whole wheat English muffins topped with spicy Spanish poached eggs. A great way to really wake up your taste buds!
My version on a Bento Box. Shrimp fresh rolls with a spicy sesame dipping sauce. And you thought lunch had to be ham on white!
The famous “Tuna Curry in a Hurry” from Clover Leaf. I couldn’t just do 5 ingredients. I added green onion and substituted the sour cream for plain yogurt. What a huge hit! It’s an ok substitute for a last minute dinner, but the real thing is so much better and doesn’t take that much longer.
