Today was Jack’s 2 month doctor’s appointment… which means 2 month SHOTS… which means both Jack and mama were freaking out. Poor kid. He seems to be doing okay, though. We gave him some infant Tylenol and he was all smiles again during his bath. Too bad we have another round of the immunizations at 4 months
Yesterday Newflower had Chobani on sale for $0.99, and they even had my new favorite flavor- pineapple!! So breakfast this morning was pineapple Greek yogurt topped with blueberries and Kashi Toasted Berry Crumble.
It was an interesting flavor combo.
Jack and I headed to the mall after his morning nap. He was a great little shopped and smiled at me while I ate lunch in the food court… Which Wich with hummus and veggies:
My little lunch buddy.
Okay, so as for the special project I mentioned yesterday:
I have tons and tons of cookbooks that I NEVER use. See?
Out of laziness, I usually end up just looking at recipes online, even though I have all of these great resources sitting on the shelf. So, my goal is to pick a cookbook every week/two weeks/month (depending on the book) and choose recipes exclusively from that book.
First up? Rachael Ray’s Big Orange Book.
On Sunday I cooked my first recipe from this: Sweet and Sauer Soup (read about it here). Tonight I made the Cold Chicken Satay Noodles.
This recipe is super simple to make. The sauce is a mixture of peanut butter, sriracha, garlic, honey, soy sauce, lime juice and oil (I used mostly vegetable with a little sesame). Then you just toss in whole wheat noodles, rotisserie chicken, spinach and peanuts. I also added shredded carrots.
In order to give this time to chill, I prepared it last night and then stuck it in the fridge. It seemed pretty dry tonight, so we went ahead and heated it up in the microwave. I also topped it with more lime juice, sriracha and Italian parsley.
Not bad, but I’m not sure that I’ll make it again. It’s a little bland.
I have several more recipes lined up from this cookbook, and since I usually only cook 3 times per week or so (bad bad bad) and we have a lot going on this week in particular- I’ll probably stick with this book for at least a couple of weeks.
Hope everyone had a great day!
