I figured I would keep things casual around here while I'm away so I decided I would share another 'What I Ate: for Dinner' post, as I have collected quite a few photos of some of my more memorable meals from the past few months.
basic tomato sauce (by adding some stock and some wine) and then cooked my penne directly in it. I also stirred in tons of grated cheese, made some bruschetta toasts smeared with basil pesto and sundried tomato pesto and just simple cheese and made a big salad and some roasted vegetables. This was a delicious meal and it made for awesome leftovers.
eggplant with garlic sauce (with a little soft tofu stirred in) and a thai red curry with chicken drumsticks and lots of fresh cilantro. We ate this with fluffy jasmine rice and it was delicious.
spicy chicken tikka masala (with eggplant), roasted vegetables, red onion chutney, some Indian-style couscous, and garlic naan.
flatbread pizza smeared with goat's cheese, drizzled with honey, sprinkled with crushed red pepper flakes, and then generously topped with baby arugula, sliced tomatoes, and caramelized onions.
beans & rice, skirt steak with chimichurri, crumbled queso fresco, freshly fried tortilla chips, and an avocado and corn salsa.
grilled ribs this summer. To accompany the ribs, I made roasted vegetables, a frisee salad, and a Greek-inspired Israeli couscous made with lots of cucumber, tomato, onion, dill, and Greek yogurt. It was pretty delicious.
grilled pork with tiny rice sticks with pickled carrot and daikon (except without the carrot because we ran out).
grilled ribs, but this time with some mash and sauteed kale.
pesto with cashew nuts and a huge chunk of parmesan. I've decided that I love cashews in pesto because they make it extra creamy and decadent.
cheesy salsa chicken (using habanero cheddar), some rice, platanos maduros, and roasted vegetables. These leftovers were awesome the next day at work.
