You Are Tasting: Dinners
After traveling to Denver a few weeks ago to visit Rob’s family, I got home and was seriously craving Italian food. It’s one of my favorite foods, but I couldn’t tell you the last time I’d cooked it or gone out to eat it! Pasta, tortellini actually, was my favorite food as a kid, so I found this strange that I’d gone so long without a noodle fix!
Lasagna has always been one of my favorites, but I really can’t stand when it’s just covered in cheese. I like to be able to taste each layer. The meat, the noodles, the sauce, and then yes, the cheese.
I got a big shipment of Alaskan fish from Stormont Williams Fish Supply Co. just a few weeks ago and I’ve been testing out new fish recipes since then! I’ll be honest, cooking fish is a bit scary for me. We didn’t grow up eating it and for a long time I never knew what to put on it besides salt and pepper. How boring. And a waste when you have fish this amazing and fresh tasting!
It’s finally fall! As much as I love fall, it seems that living in Texas for the majority of my life (up until last February) has deprived me of a true fall. This year has been different. The trees are already turning golden and orange, the temperature has dropped and I’ve been cooking hearty (& healthy) meals to ring in my favorite season.
I’ve been wanting to try out a skinny version of lasagna soup for quite sometime now, but summer didn’t really seem like the right time to make it. But lucky for me, we’ve had a few days of cooler temperatures here in Chicago. Nothing too wild, but it’ll get into the 60s at night and for me, that’s perfect the soup temperature!
We recently came across a really great Mexican restaurant in Chicago. One where the salsa is actually spicy and the dishes pack serious flavor. I was thrilled to have found this hidden gem since Chicago Mexican food has not proved to be all that great.
