Dinners

I've been cooking a lot more lately!

Mon-Greek Shrimp Pasta-very good and very easy. Make a salad of feta, tomatoes, and oregano. Cook the shrimp with garlic, butter and olive oil. Make some pasta (we used penne). Add the shrimp to the pasta, add the salad to that, and you're done. Ate this for days.

Tues-Chris made a creamy corn and potato chowder (under my guidance). This reminded me of leek and potato soup and it was delicious. In Atlanta we used to go to this place called Taquieria del Sol and they had a spicy Shrimp Corn Chowder there that was to die for. This tastes exactly like that without the Shrimp and the spice. Easily modifiable-add some hot sauce and those little shrimp (or some cut up shrimp) and you're there. Ate this for days too.

Wed-McDonald's. It's Monopoly time at McDonalds. It's a good thing I don't gamble.

Thur-Spam Fried Rice. Chris claims this is his favorite dish. It's good comfort food, and after making it for six years, it's like sleepwalking. Freshly minced ginger makes the difference here.

Spam fried rice? That's Chris' favorite given all the yumminess you have created? ? ?

Sunday is always my cooking time night. Last week I made Mulligatawny soup (Indian curry soup) from the Joy of Cooking, and tonight I made Moroccan chicken from Redbook via MSN. Liked last week's better -

What's on your menu this week?
