Last night I tried a recipe from Nicki's Kitchen. It was called Coconut Chicken and WOWWWEEE! It was good. I don't generally like most Asian foods other than our Americanized Chinese food. But this was delicious and oh so very easy. The ingredients were not hard to find either. The hardest would be the Thai fish sauce which I found easily in the ethic foods aisle at the commissary. Try it, you'll love it. She also has several recipes for avocados right now for those of you who like those. I'm not a huge fan of avocados, but I love guacamole. I think I mentioned it before but you should also try her Chicken and Leek Kabob recipe. TO. DIE. FOR.
Earlier this week, Dan and I celebrated the 9th "anniversary" of our first date (the second time around). All together... "Awwwwww". So I made a special dinner of Veal Saltimbocca. I adapted the recipe a little to include some fontina cheese and I noticed I accidentally bought fresh basil instead of sage, but it turned out great.
For my dad's birthday I made my adapted recipe for Tunnel of Fudge cake and was a little disappointed. I found the outside parts of the cake a little dry. The inside is gooey and fudgey still but the recipe is just too nutty for me. I am a purist. But if you like nuts, you'll probably like this cake.
I've missed you, dear Diary.
