Welcome to Week 2 of the festival of new recipes! This was really only a three day week for us and yet, there was still cooking! I will admit it, I am proud of this.
Tuesday – Fragrant Chicken Coconut Curry with Green Beans and Sweet Potatoes from real food
I was looking forward to something a little bit more healthy after a weekend of pizza, ice cream, and onion rings at the cabin. This, my friends, was disappointment city. I had to make some sort of really intensive herb-lemongrass-jalapeno paste that for all of the work tasted like nothing. So I guess the worse news is that this underwhelming dish filled my largest dutch oven and so I froze some leftovers for a rainy day. I am banking on the fact that this will taste better when we need a meal in a pinch. I will be throwing this recipe away.
Thursday – Zucchini-Feta Fritters with Hummus Dip from real food
Y’all know I love a good fritter. This one brought in a few flavors I have not frittered before: feta (no noticeable difference), lemon zest (yes!), and oregano.
Since the recipe proposed hummus as a dip, I used hummus as my protein instead of my go-to soft fried eggs. It was a nice change. I can’t say I would do it all the time, but I really enjoyed this meal and we will make it again.
