I Love Drunken…
June 29, 2010 § 1 Comment
While I am on the topic of food, lets talk Thursday night dinner this week. As you know, the movie theme is out for the summer, but I am sure in this case any Thai or Asian related movie would make a good fit. This will be the first dinner I host in my new place, so the pressure is on!
I had to select recipes based on my overly abundant basil plants and the CSA selection this week. So we will be having Drunken Noodles and Spicy Savoy Slaw, mojitos, and the chocolate cherry squares I have decided to double!
It’s funny how we adapt by season and location when we cook. The need to use up my CSA veggies is a given, but there are other reasoning for this recipe selection. Example being, I was about to make a basil curry but thought better of it because I didn’t want my place smelling like Indian food for a week. And I ruled out everything that has to be baked in the oven because it’s warm enough without adding to the heat. But in the winter, all I want is warm soup and I force myself to live on root vegetables because they are in season- oh how I love to watch the seasons change!
