Salmon Burgers

Spinach Feta salmon burgers with asparagus.  Turned out pretty well.  This time on the asparagus I lightly drizzled soy sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar.  Julia scarfed them down.

Oaxacan Red Chile Mole Simmer Sauce

Not sure if this really counts as a blog-worthy post, but we made an easy Mexican fiesta thanks to Rick Bayless.

We used this  Added 1.5 lb chicken breast cut into 4 large pieces, and otherwise followed the directions.  This was really pretty tasty.

Also made some rice using  The recipe called for 1 c rice and 1 c water.  I ended up adding quite a bit more water to make it not crunchy, but it still ended up crunchy.  Next time probably use 1 3/4 or 2 c water.

Served with refried black beans, tortillas, and a bit of queso oaxaceno.  Yum.

Good Old Chili Con Carne

Jamie Oliver, pg 172.  Browned the beef separately again, although we've apparently done it both ways. It called for 2 onions, which I used, but it was waaay too oniony.  Maybe next time only use 1 onion, especially if it's big.

It's crazy that we haven't cooked hardly at all the past few weeks...
