Yesterday I put together a list of all the recipes I’ve documented on this little blog of mine and I was quite proud to see what a long list it was! One thing I learned looking through the list is that I need to start experimenting on my own a little bit more to make my own recipes. I’ve gotten the hang of following directions in a recipe but I feel like I have a pretty good sense of what flavors go well together and I need to start experimenting a little on my own and trusting my own instincts regarding flavor and spices.
Last night I made a good old standby: Ken’s mother’s Chicken Goulash recipe which Ken ate over the usual elbow noodles and I had over spaghetti squash. It was delicious with the spaghetti squash since the squash soaked up some of the tomato sauce. Yum yum!
On the menu for tonight is some salmon with sauteed spinach and mushrooms and possibly some sweet potato hash browns. Tomorrow night we’ll be having Tandoori chicken, and on Friday night with my mom we’ll have Cajun Dirty Rice using Cauliflower instead of rice! I will be sure to update with recipes as my Challenge continues!
