Two hours ago, I edited this photo and sat down to write about it … but then I realized the Grey’s Anatomy season finale was on and I had to watch it. OMG, Grey’s. (And yes, that is all I am going to say about that.)
We tried another recipe from Jamie’s Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals tonight. This time, it was Chicken Fajitas. They were just eh. We love fajitas, but these lacked some punch … Flavored with lime juice, smoked paprika and a dash of cumin, it could have used a pinch of something spicy and perhaps some salt.
Also, as I’ve mentioned before, the recipe style isn’t something I am comfortable with. After cooking three recipes from this book, the paragraph style of directions – that is, without any breaks between steps – is still something that I find hard to follow. I’ve adjusted by reading and re-reading the directions several times, but it’s still a little overwhelming.
All that said, there are always going to recipes that work or don’t work for you in any cookbook … so, maybe this was just a fluke.
Next week, Shawn picks the recipe to try …
