I haven’t posted in this category forever, I guess because I’ve mostly been rotating through old favorites and I figured I’d be duplicating. But lately I’ve been feeling sort of in the mood for trying new things. Maybe it’s the change of seasons. Here’s what we’ve been eating:
Linguine in lemon/garlic/butter/white wine with fresh gulf shrimp for me and chicken for Denny.
Flank steak fajitas. I love the spice rub blend from Cook’s Illustrated (unfortunately the site is subscription-only. I have a cookbook I found it in. It’s basically your warm spices: cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, salt, crushed red pepper, that kind of thing). I make big batches of it and keep it around for all kinds of Latin-inspired cooking.
Asian lettuce wraps, inspired by this recipe, but instead I used ground pork and also added half a pound of finely-chopped mushrooms.
I think I’m going to roast some chicken thighs with zucchini, red bell pepper, onions, garlic, herbs, and pine nuts.
