Crab Cakes with Lemon Aioli. Very good and threw cayenne pepper in there because we love spicy. I already have some lump crab meat (a decent price at trader joe’s!) in the fridge to make more soon!
Yakisoba Chicken. I winged this one and it came out good. This was for the girls, since I was cooking up something spicy for Ben and me. True still doesn’t like mushrooms, but she liked all the rest of it. The baby really loved this dish! She was the last one standing.
Jjambbong (Korean-Chinese Spicy Noodle Soup). This was so good and I doubled the recipe and doubled the amount of chili it called for. Ben said, “You for sure have to make this in the winter!” Mind you, I made this when it was sweltering hot outside, so we were double sweating from the weather and the heat in the food. Such a good recipe and if you like spicy foods, make this!
Spaghetti and Meatballs. I know it’s basic, but even still I usually need a recipe to make something from scratch. This time, I didn’t even use a recipe for the meatballs! I’m slowly getting more comfortable venturing off on my own, but I still wouldn’t say I’m a cook of sorts. Maybe one day it will come more naturally, but until then, I’ll keep practicing.
Week of 9/23 – 9/27
I’ve cooked so many different recipes in my family meal planning. I definitely should do a round up of my top ten. There is so much to learn in the kitchen. I’ve been the main chef these days that it’s been months since Ben has cooked and cooking is more natural to him than me. Family planning has definitely saved us a lot of time and allowed us to enjoy our dinners more together as a family. We’re so thankful for our dinner times!
