This dish was prepared in honor of Nelson’s Birthday. Since Chris and I are a bit cash-poor these days (just bought the house), I thought it would be more economical to wine and dine him at home. This stew was inspired from a Cioppino I had at a restaurant. The Cioppino was a bit hearty for my taste but I thought it would be more appropriate to call it a stew. Served with crusty bread, it really hits the spot on a cold winter night.
There is a tiny little Korean deli I used to order my lunch from back when I was working. And every Tuesday, their lunch special is Pajeon. Since I left my job, I’ve been craving this dish so badly that I decided to make my own version of it at home. I have to say it’s pretty close to the ones I used to get at the deli or any Korean restaurants. Enjoy!
Over the weekend I was craving for some seafood stew. I didn’t care that it was stew-inappropriate weather. I’m one of those people that can eat soups and stews regardless how hot it is outside, as long as I’m craving it —I’m having it. There’s a local bakery that makes AMAZING breads —got a French baguette to go with the meal. It was heaven!
Last night, Chris and I had Hawaiian food for dinner. It took me back to the times when we vacationed in Hawaii and all the wonderful poke dishes we had. I was inspired to make my own version of tuna poke at home. This is awesome with some rice and a side of macaroni salad (not pictured). I didn’t make the salad, as I was lazy. I’ll have a write-up of the recipe soon in another post.
I was feeling a bit lazy today and didn’t want to go through a lot of trouble cooking dinner tonight. Since I had some asparagus and defrosted shrimp, I thought I’d combine the two. I also had some carrots so I threw that in. Took no time at all —I was done cooking within 45 minutes.
