Last week I got really into cooking - just like exercise I tend to hit peaks and valleys - Monday was tacos, Tuesday black bean burgers, Wednesday broccoli cheese soup (great recipe, but don't you dare use fat-free-half-and-half. I used heavy cream + whole milk), Thursday was our mediterranean feast & Friday Bud ordered Jimmy John's for movie night (I went out with some girlfriends :)
Since the kids are both in full-day school, it's been so much fun to plan slightly more elaborate - but still simple, is that possible? - meals. Tonight I'm hoping to do a pared down chicken Tikka Masala. I'm hopeful, but realistically the kids will probably eat bread + scraped off chicken for dinner.
Bud and I still laugh over our first Indian dinner together (I'd had it before, but he had not). On a whim, he decided to go out on a limb and ordered the goat. Goat. Yes. And hated it. Not quite the soft foray into exotic foods I had hoped for him. HAAAAA.
What are you making tonight? Any great ideas? I'd love to swap recipes on here, if you'd like. xo
