Dinner: Monday, January 7, 2019

Much to my surprise, the wife took a shot at making take out Chinese food for dinner tonight. Well, I said much to my surprise, but I’m not really surprised. She’s worked hard to expand her fantastic cooking chops into unfamiliar terrain, including not only Chinese but Thai and Mexican as well. But I digress. The wife’s offering tonight was Orange Chicken with steamed rice. It wasn’t perfect, but it was really good for a first attempt. The best part was the crispiness of the fried coating. It stood up nicely to the orange sauce and remained crispy. The sauce itself was good, but a bit on the tart side when compared to our usual take out haunts. I also thought the meal overall could have used a little more seasoning. If I did numeric scores, I’d give the wife a seven out of ten for her first foray into orange chicken. Looking forward for to her second attempt.


Thursday Lunch: June 28, 2018

More of the wife’s fantastic cooking in left over form for lunch. This time it’s leftover Chicken JalapeƱo Popper Pasta Cassarole. As my wife knows, I’m a huge fan of cassaroles, which benefits us both quite often since they tend to be easy and quick to make. This one features chicken, lots of cheese, pasta, jalapeƱos for a mild kick and some cream cheese as well. I can and will attest that not only was it really good when she made it for dinner a couple of nights ago, but it also is a fine lunch as leftovers. Can’t wait to see what’s going to be on the menu for dinner.


Wednesday Dinner: June 27, 2018

Again, been on a hiatus from the diet for a bit, and thus been having more variety for dinner than usual. The wife surprised me tonight with her chicken and potato yellow curry with Jasmine rice for dinner. She knows it’s one of my favorites. I love the spice and the creamy texture that the coconut cream brings to it.

She also made up a cake for dessert as well. Not exactly sure what the name is, but it had pineapple, orange and whipped cream involved. Really enjoyed it. The wife does a great job, especially when she’s on summer vacation. Lol.
