As a result the cooking steps will have to suffice.
Attempt #1 at making salsa verde for the week = an incredibly watery salsa. Forgot I should have only added a cup of water instead of two as the recipe called for :(
Attempt at making saffron rice. Faired slight better here but think the rice could have still been a little more flavorful, need to find a better recipe.
Added some roasted zucchini to pump of the vegetable volume.
The end result equals yellow rice thanks to the turmeric but maybe I needed more saffron?
The queso came out pretty amazing though. Made use of this recipe except I used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
Tuesday night = fish tacos with Matt. No complaints about this meal, everything was delicious! However, I once again forgot to photograph the final product, I guess I'm just too excited or hungry to eat :/
For the fish we used flounder and then topped with coleslaw.
For the slaw:
1/2 head of cabbage finely chopped
1/2-1 whole avocado
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 jalapeno pepper
5 tablespoons lime juice
Mix all together and refrigerate until ready to use.
Also attempted salsa verde again, much better this time around, though it still could have been a little less watery. I guess that depends on your salsa preference.
Wednesday=John's Pizza on Bleeker with Susan and Dana. Can't believe I've lived in New York for so long and I've never been! Pizza for me is basically a no no due my recent tomato allergy development but I couldn't resist trying out the famous establishment, so I popped in 2 Benadryl and indulged. So glad I did, by far some of the best pizza I've ever ate!!
