After trying four new recipes last week, there’s only one new one on the menu this week (Creamy Cajun Chicken). I probably should try to spread them out and make a couple each week, but sometimes I just get all excited about trying something new.
And this week I’m not as excited.
Of the four new recipes from last week, the pot roast was a keeper for sure- the wine gave it a really nice flavor. Most of the reviews said it was the best pot roast they’ve ever had – not sure I’d go that far, but it was good. The Salmon-Vegetable bake was good – a nice way to use canned salmon (I changed it up by utilizing a can of salmon I had and also added peppers, onions, and celery, and topping it with grated Parmesan).
The Coconut Vegetable soup I’ll probably not make again and the Classic Pad Thai was ok, but still not “the recipe” I’m looking for. Maybe I need to break down and get the special items at an Asian store (dried shrimp, tamarind, etc.) that were “optional” in the recipe. If you’ve got a Pad Thai recipe you love, I’d love it if you share!
