If you are one who reads my facebook page at all, you know that I frequently have status updates related to food.  Cooking, eating, driving to get it, planning to make it; you name it, I've talked about it.  One of my faithful followers is Betsy's mom.  She was hoping that when we came home, we would make one of our infamous delicious dinners.  Last night, Betsy's grandparents came over, and we cooked everybody dinner!  The menu may sound familiar; we made something similar a week ago with leftovers from our fridges.  Last night, we definitely improved on it though...

Spinach salad with pear, walnuts, strawberries, and Gorgonzola cheese.
Caribbean rice and beans.

Grilled blackened chicken.

Pineapple and peach chutney with mint and cilantro.

Table set and ready to eat.

Here's how you do it.  Rice n bottom, chicken in the middle, chutney on top.

Ginger ice cream with fresh peach sauce.

Overall, dinner was a HUGE success!  It was delicious.  We decided that we should write a cookbook for medical students based on our random dinners with stuff from the fridge. I think it would be a winner.  On the menu tonight is tofu Panang curry... we've got to do something with the leftover coconut milk!

Question of the day:  What is the difference between a salsa, a chutney, and some diced up fruit in a bowl?

From Michigan with love,

This looks delicious. Thanks for the grumbling stomach!
