What's cookin?


I'm going to start doing some more cooking again, because, well, I like to cook and it is generally cheaper and healthier than eating out. I've been working late a lot lately so by the time I get home I end up eating hot dogs or microwaved quesadillas instead of, you know, something less disgusting. Last night I made Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi from this month's issue of Cooking Light and it was delicious and very quick and easy to make. I served it with Caesar salad and garlic bread- yum!

Cooking for myself isn't always healthy, as evidenced by tonight's entree: a huge BLT&A. (Tomato and Avocado, heh.)

I want to marry this sandwich. Didn't Pee Wee Herman once marry a peanut butter sandwich or something similarly ridiculous on an episode of Pee Wee's Playhouse? Now that was a show ahead of its time.

Anyways, if any of you have any easy and tasty recipes to recommend (non-dairy por favor), please leave them in the comments. Bonus points if you can tell me what Pee Wee Herman married without looking it up.

Ratatouille! We have it as a side dish, as a pasta sauce, or even just spooned on some good bread. The version I make tastes even better the next day (and fantastic cold from the fridge). I'm going to make it tonight so I'll document the recipe and blog it for you. :)

I have no recipes to offer, but I do LOVE the idea of adding avocado to the BLT. Genius!

Kris said...

Okay, ratatouille blogged!

Thanks, RT- looks great!

Amanda- I love avocado on sandwiches, and I also love saying BLT&A.

It is kinda creepy to watch, actually.

Do give this soup a try - it sounds boring, but honestly, it's YUMMY!

And cheap too!
