For me... I Bring out the radio and strip down to my undies... It's time to dance... And cook! I can't cook if I'm not dancing. The music might be classic rock, oldies, hip hop, salsa or anything in between.
I chop and Shake my hips and play my music.
Yesterday and today I played songs from my latina list. Yesterday I made stuff squash. I blended veggies Italian sausage and ground lamb.
I baked the squash and drizzled a sweet butter cinnamon nutmeg home made sauce over them before stuffing it with the cooked meat and veggies.Today Once more I strip down and I pull the radio out! Today's menu was nachos with homemade Guac Salsa and homemade cheese dip. I used yesterday's leftover meat and added bison to it. The kids wanted shimp so I quickly sauteed some up. For the kids I use regular nachos in for myself I used quest nachos.
It was quite a success.
I just have music blaring off the built in speakers either running off youtube on my tv or connect it to the bluetooth on my phone.
I have a glass of dry red (shiraz, merlot) most of the time (or a pale ale/lager beer if it’s hot) or a cup of coffee when I cook dinner.
I take a long time to figure out what i feel like having for dinner, so i usually plan it the night before.
Saturday night for dinner i cooked Creamy dill garlic prawns with fettuccini at my mums place
Sunday night for dinner I cooked blue summer crab ginger stir fry and i had it with rice at my place..
Today being Monday night I didn’t cook dinner.. i had a late lunch from work and i don’t feel like dinner. I’ve just had a cup of coffee and tea lol
I haven't had wine in a while... 2mos? I usually drink Moscato. But coffee I have all the time... My only vice!
Both dishes look delicious. 😋 Shrimp is so good. Seeing your post now has me in the mood for it for breakfast.
Oh and I love crab. I've actually never cooked it myself though 🤷 I've cooked lobster though. That's a really good pic of the crab! Looks very appetizing.
Moscato is good when i’m doing like a bbq for some of my girlfriends :) but yes.. coffee is always a MUST! It’s pure liquid golddd 🤭
I love cooking with crab but i don’t eat it as much. All that work and only getting some meat lol it’s a lot of work even for just “eating” dinner 🤭😂
Picking the best crab, i turn the crab upside down and press on its chest. If it’s rock hard it’s good (meaning lots of meat). I just clean it and crack it’s shell open with a cleaver (it has its guts and stuff in there which i save) it’s really good for a more intense crabby flavour and i often cook with blue swimmer crab (it turns orange when it’s cooked) and spanner crab too if it’s on the market. Thank you! 😬
