I had a hankering for buckwheat soba noodles, so along came this recipe. I wanted some tofu, but I also wanted prawns, so why not combine both. If you are vegetarian, feel free to omit the prawns of course.
This recipe looks like there’s lots of steps, but if you do some prep in the morning like I do since I have a toddler running around and she’s not one to entertain herself yet for hours by herself, jeez, she’s so selfish. For this reason, I tend to do a lot of prep in the morning, so that when we get back from our afternoon outing after her nap, I can quickly whip up dinner while she by Cinema-Plus Pro” href=”#81309644″> plays or hangs off my leg.
It’s been quite a long time since we were in Cuba, but from what I remember there wasn’t that much seasoning on the food. There were lots of beans and pork and plantains, and oh ya, mojitos. How I miss thee! So when I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest, I thought it looked really tasty and flavourful, so obviously, I made it.
I prepped the chicken the night before to marinate and chopped up and put into bowls most of the other things the morning of, so that I could get it all ready for dinner once my daughter and I got back from the park.
I woke up last Saturday morning to gray, overcast skies, so thought it was as good a time as any to grab the crockpot and make some french onion soup.
By about 2pm, the sun was shining and it was really warm out, but by dinner time it was beginning to cool down again, and having been out all day shopping for new jeans for my husband, it was nice to come home to dinner pretty much ready. This is why I love the crockpot.
It’s the last long weekend of the summer and after my husband and his friend attended the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer game, I had a few friends, plus my husband and our friend Mike, over for mexican style stuffed peppers.
A great week night dinner as well as they are simple and delicious and can be easily adapted to fit what’s in your cupboards.
Last weekend while I was perusing the farm market, I grabbed 6 ears of fresh corn on the cob from the local farm behind the market. 3 for $1 so why not. In a few weeks, it’ll soon be 10 for $1, and then I go corny for corn.
I had this recipe on my pinterest board, so decided I’d try it. I made a few alterations, which I’ve marked below.
I was in LA a few months ago, and got on a huge mexican food thing. One might say you can
actually eat too much mexican food, but my husband and I can prove you wrong.
To top the tacos off, they suggested homemade pickles which were delicious. I’ve never made
homemade pickles before, but they were super easy. I don’t think they are authentic or anything,
but now I’m thinking I could pickle just about anything.
For you cilantro haters, you could top with parsley, but I think that’s sacrilege.
Cilantro is great, so eat it NOW!
