it was a kamikaze cooking night here...you know, the kind where you contemplate what you can make out of what you already have laying around. a chicken breast and a handful of mango cubes were defrosted and cut into bite-size pieces, plus green onion, sugar snap peas, carrots, and mushrooms, were all sauteed in butter with garlic & sesame seeds. finished with the last splash of mango nectar in the house, and a handful of crushed crispy coconut. is it fusion, is it indianesque, was it merely convenient? no idea, but it was indeed mighty tasty!

I love cooking with wine...sometimes I even put it in the food... fireweaver.wordpress.com

We ended up having leftover thai red curry. I'll save the pasta for tomorrow night.

Dessert is a dark chocolate bunny from the kids easter basket. They didn't want it, so I'm choking it down for them.

My wonderful DH got off work early yesterday and told me to go have a nap. I woke up to BBQ chicken breasts, rice and corn, the table set and the kitchen all cleaned except for the dishes we were using. What a wonderful surprise and I was rested and able to really enjoy the meal!

DH and I took our 'gonna be daughter in law' out to dinner at Applebees in Vegas. We were running through town, went to their house, grabbed her, and went out. I had regular Caesar salad, and DH had steak Caesar salad, he had margarita, I had iced tea.
