I’ve been in the mood to try some new recipes, and so far, this week has been a cooking success! I love it when that happens. Trying new recipes is such a hit-or-miss endeavor, and I get frustrated when I put the time and work into preparing something that just isn’t good. So I wanted to share with y’all these two tasty dinners.
The first new recipe I tried was Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas. Delicious! And they got a 9.5 out of 10 on the certified husband rating scale. I made them exactly like the recipe, except that I added some garlic to the sauce, just because we like garlic, and I left out the jalapeño, because my pregnant stomach and Luke’s little one do better without a lot of heat. I think in the future, though, I won’t do the extra work of frying the tortillas, we didn’t really notice much of a difference
The second experimental recipe was Pad Thai, which we had tonight. Also, Yum! Bret was skeptical at first, because of the smell, but we both really enjoyed eating it (8.5 out of 10 on the HRS). I added some ginger to the sauce, left out the sprouts because there wasn’t any at the store today, and added thinly sliced carrots. I’d been craving pad thai since I had some while visiting family in another city and this was a great way to fulfill that desire. I was also surprised at how easy and quick this was to cook.
