Throughout the week I try to cook yummy, healthy dinners. One of my goals is to cook one new recipe a week. I know this is nothing new in the blog world, but I decided that whatever new recipe I cook, I'll post on the blog with a rating in case my blog friends want to try it out.
Tonight we ate Poblano Peppers and Corn.
I told Sean I was going to need a rating from 1-10.
I'm still not sure if he thought it was all a big joke. He started acting like he was on the Food Network.
"I give it a 10 Danielle. You really outdid yourself on this one. Best thing you've ever cooked."
"No Sean, seriously, I need you to actually tell me. It's not a reflection of my cooking, it's just your judgement of the recipe itself."
"No, I'm being serious. It's a 10. I mean, it has lots of color, it's...."
Okay, so I still don't know how serious he was, but I give it an 8.
It was really, really good! The only thing is, a few of the ingredients we didn't have on hand and you do have to be pretty good about getting a lot of things going at once. The corn and peppers were grilling on the porch, I was blending the cilantro lime sauce in the Vitamix and the quinoa was on the stove.
I mean, I can pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time so it wasn't a huge deal but there is a little bit of prep work involved.
It was good, and it tasted fresh, and it wasn't heavy.
Average score in the Kent house: 9
I'd say tried and true week number one is a success!
