The List

Monday: Shortcut tandoori chicken with grilled zucchini and onions.

The recipe is originally from sunset magazine but this is the same recipe.                      ***I forgot about the whole marinating over night so it is only marinating for 3 hours. Also, I forgot the serrano.

Tuesday: Sweet corn risotto with cajun shrimp

Wednesday: Shrimp kebabs with cilantro garlic aioil

The recipe is originally from sunset magazine but this is the same recipe.               ***We are eating this with fresh, crusty bread and lots of white wine.

Thursday: Corn, bacon, and parmesan pasta


We have nothing planned. I am expecting something to be moved around and having family over one day or maybe we might see Ghostbusters.

Last Week

Sunday: Sambal chicken skewers with Spicy coconut noodles

This was my our first experience with sambal oelek, and it was really good with the chicken. Sambal chicken skewers were delicious but since I am still suck getting the hang of grilling I had to finish cooking them in the broiler. It worked. the spicy coconut noodles (also had the sambal oelek) had a really good flavor but may be better for us as rice? Not sure, but the coconut milk made them a little too slippery.

Monday: Grilled white pizza with escarole and fennel salad

Since my grilling didn’t get any better the next day (and the dough wasn’t as cold as it should have been) this sucked to grill. All the edges fell down into the fire. the edges that didn’t, didn’t cook all the way. I did like the part when you grate garlic into the two cheeses. (I didn’t grate it but push it through a garlic press.) I gave a nice strong but subtle (is that a thing?) flavor. The salad part. smh. I always thought that escarole is usually cooked down like most harsh greens but not this salad. I just went with it and added the salad on top of the janky pizza. I didn’t like this dinner. Danny did, but took off the salad.

Tuesday: Danny had steak and I had Amodos. (rolled tacos with guac and cheese)

Wednesday:  Hoisin barbecue pork sandwiches

This was super good and really easy. Definitely recommend using a baguette due to the chewiness of the bread. Don’t over cook the pork since they are really thin. I am so used to very thick bone-in pork chops, so these were sad in comparison but worked well. We served “Alexia Sweet potato fries”. (and then we went pokemon hunting)

Thursday: We had Cornish Pasty. He had peppered steak and I had rosemary chicken.

Friday: Phnom Penh (Cambodian) fried chicken wings with spicy brussel sprouts.

Saturday: Phnom Penh (Cambodian) fried chicken wings with sauted bok choy in sesame oil.

We loved this so much. Obviously, two days in a row, but seriously Danny wants it this week as well if his parents come over for dinner. Danny made it both times. we had rice both nights. Both nights we devoured “Strange Things”

Sunday: We had Four Peaks. He had a Fried chicken sandwich and I had fish and chips. We used to love Four Peaks but lately have been disappointed.

***somewhere during the week were supposed to make spicy shrimp and tomato ceviche but i couldn’t find aji amarillo paste (Peruvian yellow pepper paste) at the store and forgot to order it online. I still want to make it. someday.
