Made this again.  Again, as  noted, a bit shy of two dinners.

Made up a chicken curry.  Broccoli, carrots, zucchini, chicken, coconut milk, a few tablespoons of curry paste. Top with peanuts and lime juice.  

Turned out pretty well.

Green Posole with Cod

This was pretty tasty, and was pretty easy.  Nice and spicy, so the kids had mac and cheese.

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 shallots, chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 serrano chiles, thinly sliced, divided
8 medium tomatillos (about 1¼ pounds), husks removed, rinsed
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems, plus more for serving
1 pound cod fillet
1 15-ounce can white hominy, rinsed
1 8-ounce bottle clam juice
3 small radishes, trimmed, thinly sliced
Lime wedges (for serving)


Heat oil in a large pot over medium. Cook shallots, garlic, and half of chiles, stirring occasionally, until soft and fragrant, 6–8 minutes. 

Meanwhile, purée tomatillos in a blender (food processor) until smooth. 

Add half of tomatillo purée to pot and cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 cup cilantro to remaining purée in blender and blend until smooth; set aside. 

Add cod, hominy, clam juice, and 1 cup water to pot. Bring to a simmer and gently cook over medium-low until cod is opaque throughout and beginning to flake, 8–10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in reserved raw tomatillo-cilantro purée, breaking cod into large chunks; season with salt and pepper. 

Divide stew among bowls and top with radishes, cilantro, and remaining chile. Serve with lime wedges.

Sweet and Sour Pork

Jamie Oliver, pg 65.  Pretty fast and easy to make, and it turned out quite well.  I probably over 5-spiced it though.  Pork, peppers, pineapple, garlic, ginger,

Springtime Bows with Asparagus

Rachel ray, pg 266.  Recipe 305.  This is pretty tasty.  Asparagus, add mushrooms, peas, prosciutto, farfalle.  Asparagus was pretty good, although we're a bit early for local.

We've made this quite a bit in the past, but not recently.

Beef Stroganoff

Mom's beef stroganoff recipe.  Lots of mushrooms.  Turned out pretty well, although the beef was not that good.  Maybe it was a bit rushed as I didn't realize how long it needed to cook.

Glorious Macaroni and Cheese

Added mushrooms this time.  And no cauliflower, just lots of broccoli.
