Ever since he graduated last August, Dave has become as enamored with cooking as I am with knitting - maybe even more so (and that is saying A LOT). He has been reading cookbooks and commentaries by famous chefs, watching youtube tutorials, and even ordered a set of cooking dvds. He has experimented, and taken over the kitchen to the point that everything in there is "his" now. I love it!
I think the best part of Dave's new hobby is that I don't have to cook any more. It was a chore for me, but it is a JOY for him. Can I just say I'm smitten with my husband all over again?
Here are a few photos of the meals he has created for our family lately:
This was a Spinach salad topped with brown sugar-baked bacon, sauted baby pb mushrooms, sliced and crumbled quail eggs and a honey mustard vinegarette. It was paired with flank steak, potatoes, and asparagus.
This was a Thai Coconut Chicken Curry with kale served over brown rice.
Shirred Egg on toast with chives - a favorite for breakfast dinners
This one was from a meal when Dave was cooking his way through Rick Bayless' book. WOW - so yummy but I think I gained about 5 pounds from eating so much homemade guacamole...
It was - Roasted poblano guacamole with garlic and parsley (served with blue corn chips)- Grilled steak tacos with roasted poblanos and grilled onions
- Mexican rice (cooked properly...soaked, drained, fried, and simmered with sauted onion and garlic)
