Salmon with Kale and Quinoa Salad

This was fine but I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to make it again. I did really like the citrus dressing. I doubled this recipe to serve two.

Tanmen

Totally got Midnight Diner-tastic up in here! This is the recipe they make in the first episode (no noodles for the mysterious cab driver). It’s basically a pork and vegetable stir fry ramen with a very basic broth. I mostly based this off of this video.

Nikujaga

A hit from the Japanese cooking challenge. Simple, a little sweet, very homey. From my cookbook “Tokyo Cult Recipes.” If we made it again, we’d use shaved beef.

Light Chicken Adobo

This, while a little time consuming, is quite good! I froze it in the marinade with no issue when we decided we’d have it another night. I also cooked it ahead of when we actually ate it, and that worked out fine, too.

Heaping Avocado Toast

Using Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for inspiration, I made an avocado toast adaptation using much more avocado than I usually do. Delicious.

Chicken Wonton Soup

This was tasty and fun to make. The only criticism I have is that the wontons got a little gummy, maybe from the corn starch? John is making them and frying them as an appetizer tonight – curious how they will turn out!

Cooking Light Upside Down Shepherd’s Pie

This was quite delicious! My sister made it first and recommended the recipe. I wouldn’t use instant potatoes if I made this again – I couldn’t find the type the recipe wanted, and I really don’t mind making my own (would probably do half potatoes half cauliflower).
