Last week’s dinners were pretty good. I would make them all again. The Vietnamese Grilled Chicken was something different. I would have liked to try the papaya relish, but Chris thinks papaya smells like dirty diapers 😛 so I used mangoes instead. I also made a serious blunder making the marinade- I chopped the jalapeno w/o gloves 😥 . My hands felt like they were on fire for a few hours afterward. Scrubbing them with sugar and soap helped relieve that burning feeling for a bit.
Here’s what’s up for this week:
Sunday- BBQ Chicken Pizza, Strawberry Spinach Salad & Banana Cream Pie (as requested by Chris)
Monday- Chinese Spareribs w/ Napa Cabbage & Rice (from the June issue of Everyday Food magazine- can’t find a link 😦 )
Tuesday- leftover spareribs
Wednesday- Chicken Milanese w/ Arugula Salad
Thursday- leftover chicken
Friday- Appetizer Night
Saturday- eat out
