I have good news.
and I have bad news.
And I have MORE bad news.
The Good News is that I finally restocked my pantry with yummy groceries for some yummy new posts.
The Bad News is that there are a few more “cleaning out the pantry recipes” to torment you with until i start bangin‘ out new projects. (lol- i said bangin‘)
The More Bad News is that I didn’t make it to Round 3 in Project Food Blog… but it was good news to me! I got my wish. I wanted to make it to Round 2 and I did! I couldn’t ask for a more rewarding experience. I will for sure be entering next year (if they have one next year) and am so happy for some of my friends that made it to the next round! I am routing for you guys!
But not making it to Round 3 allows me to look through my cookbooks and say “Im gonna make WHATEVER I WANT!” and I shall! Deadlines were never really my forte…
Sundays are big cooking days for me. I plan my week, i plan my food, and then i prep. Being single, I can get away with making 2-3 new dishes per week. One dish will be LUNCH for the week and the other two recipes will alternate nights as my dinner. This plan is not for those that hate leftovers… but every week is something new and something to look forward to.
Cleaning out the pantry is not always easy…
I like fresh food. I like fresh tasting food. And when i was holding the package of Palak Paneer and preparing it, the smell of it reminded me of baby food.
Not a good smell.
Luckily, i had some fresh spinach in stock and decided to add it to the packaged palak paneer for a fresher taste. And threw in some chicken to stretch it out.
I marinated the chicken in cumin, garlic and a little bit of cilantro and a drizzle of olive oil.
I have good news.
