I'm not sure what got into me, but tonight when I pulled out the ingredients for our evening meal, I reached for butter, cheese, and more cheeses! "This is going to be good," I thought. Although you can hardly go wrong with the taste buds with these All-American artery-cloggin' ingredients, I rarely cook with them, much less all at once. Tonight, I put Mexican cheeses and butter in my fresh cooked spinach. I added yellow American cheese to my rice. I cooked my cod in butter and garlic.

Ginger Mahi Mahi with Vegetables and Rice

I created this Asian flavored entree last night for supper. I half sauteed/ half poached two Mahi Mahi thawed filets, asparagus, and mushrooms in minced ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, and water. I put this stir-fry over rice. My rice I cooked in some curry sauce I had made the other day. The meal was outstanding!

Dinner of the Day

I added some leftover traditional tomato sauce to a pan of leftover cauliflower curry. I then chopped and added a head of green leaf lettuce to complete our rice topping of the day. I loved it! Anthony was not as excited about it.

Shari's Awesome Multicultural Rice Dish

What to call it? Delicious. Scrumptious. My multicultural rice dish has Indian, Latin American, and Italian ingredients in it. Yes, I absolutely did combine white long-grain rice, lentils, tumeric, mustard seeds, coriander powder, red chili powder, cumin, tomato sauce, garlic, onion, oregano, salt, water, and olive oil in one pot for dinner. My multicultural rice dish "makes for some" awesome spicy comfort food.

Shari's Chicken & Broccoli

I came up with my version of Chicken & Broccoli this evening for a quick supper. I got my rice cooking, and then I chopped some rice toppings into a pan with water. I added a little soy sauce and olive oil, covered my pan, and then let the pan full of goodness cook until the rice was done. Anthony and I both loved this one! It tasted just like the stuff you get at American Chinese restaurants.

Shari's Chicken & Broccoli:

2 Cups Water
2 Bulbs of Garlic (Leave most of the cloves whole)
1 Roughly Chopped Green Bell Pepper
1 Stalk Chopped Broccoli
4 Chopped Chicken Tenderloins
Salt & Pepper
2 TB Soy Sauce
1 1/2 TB Olive Oil

Bengali Fish Curry

I bought some fish, haddock at the store for something different today. I was planning to make fish tacos, but Anthony asked if I could make fish curry. I thought that sounded like a great idea! I looked online for a recipe and found Yummly's Bengali Fish Curry. I made that. We really liked the recipe. It was fast and easy. I served the fish curry over rice.

French Lentils Inspiration

I wanted to make lentils and rice for dinner, but I wanted to try a slightly different prep (I've been making Indian food a lot lately).  We had some celery, so I just googled "lentils and celery." Spark Recipe's French Lentils With Celery, Carrots, And Onions was the first recipe I saw. I didn't really follow the recipe, but I did use the the French flavor profile from the recipe: celery, carrots, onion, garlic, thyme, and parsley. Dinner was delicious and easy to eat. We did not have to think twice about whether it was too spicy or not. It was not.

Anthony Made Dinner For Us!

Anthony made us a delicious dinner after church while I was feeding Shastya. He says it was Chinese inspired. We ate our meal with chopsticks. He made a stir-fry of chicken with the bones, green bell pepper, onion, fresh ginger, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, and salt. What a treat!

Baby Shastya Loves Rice & Chopsticks

This evening while we were eating supper Shastya started crying a little which is her way of communicating. It took us a minute to realize that she wanted our rice. I had given her a few grains of rice another night, but tonight she was hungry! She wanted to have an entire baby serving of rice. We obliged her. We thought it would probably be okay if she had rice since she is eating oats in oatmeal. Anthony and I decided it was easier to feed her with chopsticks than with silverware.

Broccoli Raab & Leek Stir-Fry With Coconut

I made an easy stir-fry with new-to-me vegetables. I googled leek and rapini/ broccoli raab to see what I was up against. From the pics I saw online it looked like leek was sliced similar to scallions/ green onions but cut down the middle first. I checked on rapini to see what parts of it are edible. Turns out, it's all edible. I learned rapini is bitter and is often sweetened with sugar. I sweetened my stir-fry with brown sugar and coconut flakes. I smelled a few of my Indian spice mixes to see which one or ones I wanted to put in my stir-fry. I decided on rasam powder for my seasoning. Dinner was amazing. To me the rapini stalks reminded me of asparagus, the foliage reminded me of perhaps spinach or some type of greens, and the mini broccoli florets on it . . . why broccoli of course.

Broccoli Raab & Leek Stir-Fry

1 Leek
1 1/2 Tsp. Rasam Powder
1/2 Bunch of Broccoli Raab
3 Tsp. Brown Sugar
2 TB Coconut Flakes
