I don’t know how many installments this will have, but here is the first one! I am hoping it will have a bunch since this will be sort of an ongoing adventure for our family. My husband K had the realization recently that he knows how to cook certain dishes really well, but hasn’t had to do as much cooking since we’ve been married. As a result, his cooking progress had hit a plateau. He wanted to get back in the kitchen and learn to make some dishes we have had in the past and enjoyed. This sounded like a good idea, and one we should start immediately so that we could make him feel better for the future and give us another couple-y activity to do.
Each week, we hope to make a dish together using past recipes on my blog, or maybe finding new easy ones he can learn to master. These are technically recipe posts so I am sharing them on my normal recipe days, they just might not always be new recipes. I figure this is another easy way to keep up with the blog, but still maintain some sanity. Ha!
Our first dish was one from not that long ago. It’s a tandoori-style chicken dish. K remembered really enjoying it, and it was fun to make it again. It’s pretty simple for a weeknight meal. This time we mixed it up by using chicken breasts. They worked just as well as the thighs, plus it allows us to be a bit healthier (a good idea for post-baby weight loss!). K did a great job prepping the ingredients and eyeballing the amounts of spices without needing measuring spoons (I’m so proud).
Here are some pictures from our dinner preparations:
We had leftover rice and naan from a takeout meal earlier, so it was easy to pair everything together. The vegetable was one he prepared, but I helped cook while he was relaxing from the chicken preparations. It was fun being able to tag-team the cooking, and hopefully our next endeavor will be as successful!
