Moist salmon with a sticky savory glaze, topped with a lively and bright chimichurri.
We don’t eat as much fish as I’d like. Michael is slowly warming up to the idea of fish, although he eats sushi which is a jump. Apparently raw fish is better than cooked! 😛
But since my parents always give me fish, it was time to make some. I’ve never made my own chimichurri before so I grabbed a recipe from epicurious.
Put this on macaroni, cauliflower, fries, dip things into it. Dear god.
Killer as in awesome, not deadly. That wouldn’t be good.
This recipe is for a creamy cheese sauce, with a blend of sharp white cheddar and regular cheddar, cracked black pepper and cayenne pepper. You get the sharpness of the cheese cutting through the richness of the cream, and a little pop of heat from the peppers. Amazing.
We haven’t gone to a real Beer Thursday in forever. But we were finally able to and quickly decided on sushi, as it’s too hot for pub grub.
I have a new soup related love.
There’s this new place down the street that we go for our Pho nowadays, but they have this one type that just blows me away.
It's just you and me noodles. (And Michael) But mostly you an' me.
You know I love spicy, asian-y, cilantro-y, peanut-y, whatever else-y can describe my tastes. This is a dish I’ve started to make much more often because it’s just so easy. And I have not just one, but TWO ways to make this! Golly! (there’s way more ways than two, I might have lied)
I’ve been having a great birthday so far. I have such great friends and they’ve been treating me so well! With food and booze. How kind!
My girlfriend took me down to La Casita on Tuesday for a meal! Her exact words were to “wine and dine me” but whatever.
Or as we say "Noodo-box".
This is probably one of my favourite restaurants. It’s simple, delicious and consistent. I think I really love it because I don’t eat there often, it’s always something to look forward to, and taking transit to Kits isn’t really my most favourite thing to do, so it doesn’t happen often.
Spicy and doughy! Just like me!
Payday isn’t until the 10th, so I’m still working with what I got.
You all know about my Sriracha obsession, but did you know we also have a problem with Frank’s Red Hot?
I’ve been bad lately. I have so many things to post about, but have been really lazy. The busy-ness at work has finally subsided, so I’ll be good and post lots, I swear! Plus michael starts working again soon, and I’ll have $$ for more food related frivolities!
Yes! I did.
I bought some corn tortillas to make tacos for dinner one night. Was great, but I ended up with (and still have) a TON of them left.
Jalapeno Ceasar anyone?
Okay, so a week has passed. I’d like to share my jalapeno infused vodka experiences. If you missed it, first post here.
So. Delicious. I wish I had more 😦
You ever get something into your head and it haunts you all day. This was one of those things.
