Week 5

Wow, really? Week 5?

Asian theme this week, take a break from the heavy winter stuff.
  • Thai-style Coconut Chicken Soup
  • Soy-Glazed Salmon Rice Bake
  • Stir-Fried Cabbage and Asian Vegetables
  • Roasted Red Peppers
  • Dense Chocolate Loaf Cake

I've looked back over the past few weeks and I have simply made too much food. This week I"m trying to bring it back under control. So it's like, a soup, a fish, some rice, two veggies, and a dessert. Much better.

I also did something different and went shopping last night, and made the soup and cake last night. This morning was so much more relaxed. I think I might do that, going forward.

This coconut chicken soup is so yummy, and that's even with modifying it for her tastes (no spicy, etc.). Everything else is yummy too... I'm pleased with this week's menu. I think I even made the salmon correctly. It wasn't dry, but it looked nice and done all the way through, flaky but not dry. Not that I actually tried any salmon. Luckily I've seen my fair share of cooked salmon to know what it's supposed to look like without having to actually eat any.

Hmmm...salmon. Yeah, I've seen my fair share of that...cooked every imaginable way!! (No, really, Eeva, we don't like salmon soup!) Believe it or not, I actually eat it now.
