I have been cooking up a storm lately! Mike and I were on a two week crepe binge - we'd make a big batch of crepes and then eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Throw in cheese, throw in veggies, throw in Nutella and fruit, or butter and maple syrup...they were scrumptious in every incarnation. Then I transitioned into soup - this weekend I made a big pot of Thai coconut soup from scratch. It was tasty, but not as good as what you get at a Thai restaurant, which really should not have surprised me.
And last night I went the distance with lettuce wraps. In a change from our usual throw-some-stuff-in-romaine routine, I used rice wrappers and filled them with escarole, fake chicken, carrot, radish, cellophane noodles and cilantro. I whipped up a peanut sauce for dipping, and voila.
Not so pretty, but delicious delicious.
