Chicken

Buffalo!

My roommates have officially indoctrinated me into the culture of buffalo sauce. Once someone makes something with buffalo sauce (which with them can be basically anything) you can’t help but crave buffalo.

Thus – this quick and tasty sandwich.

Basically your typical buffalo sub, which is great to order in, except when there’s 5 feet of snow outside. Woohoo Winter 2015.

So this is french bread, sliced in half, stuffed with chicken nuggets – cooked and then dredged in buffalo sauce – plus cheddar plus blue cheese dressing plus lettuce – additional toasting and sauce optional.

Snow can stop no man from their buffalo sub lovin. Franks is the best.

More asian food!

Winter. Pretty. Also frigid. Here’s an amazing ramen recipe to warm you up –

I skipped the tomatoes and added a frozen veggie mix with broccoli and carrots and mushrooms and instead of blending it to make a smooth broth I just added the noodles at the end.

I also made some tasty sticky chicken – and since cooking two new recipes can be tricky with timing I cooked the chicken then the ramen and ate the chicken while I made the ramen since it was SO TASTY DELISH.

I also halved both recipes – and fresh ginger and cilantro really made a difference in both recipes. Mmm. Stay warm out there.

Curry Noodles

I’ve been seriously craving Thai. And I still had some noodles from making Pad Thai.

I saw this on Pinterest – http://danatreat.com/2011/12/big-curry-noodle-pot/

Mixed it with my other favorite curry sauce recipe – http://pinchofyum.com/red-thai-curry-sauce

So I added the peanut butter, fish sauce, and lime juice to the first recipe, as well as chicken and peppers instead of tofu. Super tasty.

Spice is Nice

Everything in this blog post about how tasty this sauce is IS COMPLETELY TRUE.

Worth the grocery trip exclusively for this recipe (which I usually avoid). I promise.

I threw this over some rice, carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, summer squash and chicken that I quickly sautéed wile the sauce was bubbling.

Mmmm.

 

 

Spicy and sweet

 

This summer weather has me in an eternal grilling mood.

Also my basil plant is finally leafy enough I can cook with it!

Found a recipe for avocado basil pasta that was simple enough to assemble on my deck while I grilled some Spicy Honey Chicken and salmon burgers I found in my freezer while looking for chicken and only finding one breast.

Recipes below – I grilled my avocados for some extra flavor and the chicken glaze was less messy than the recipe led me to believe so fear not! Did get some significant flare ups the next time I grilled though so burn it off before you finish grilling – or clean your grate unlike my lazy self. I also grilled some asparagus for a snack while I was cooking the rest of my dinner – easy and tasty and fast. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and grill till bright green preferably rotating a few times without being lost into the grill.
