Do you go out to eat? I do! Proably a little more often then I should, but I tell myself I"m helping support the community! Ha! Plus, I love being out and about seeing people and catching the "news!"
As much as I enjoy going out, I love to cook! For me they go hand in hand, because it's great to go out and get new ideas. It's nice to order somethiing new and ponder if I could make something similar at home.
One of my favorite dishes to make is a pasta dish with grilled chicken, red onions and sun-dried tomatoes in a white wine butter sauce - or at least that is my verison of ingredents. Everytime it's a tad bit different, but overall tastes simply delicious! I have not perfected the art of cooking this for a crowd. Two people it's perfect, 4 ok... more than that I haven't even attempted.
As much as I love trying new things; staples are great to have as well. I'm currently on a kick with Sweet Chili Shrimp from 3rd Street Station. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. Just the right amount of spice to sweet! Plus, it's perfect to eat with a fork while typing away! I have some other amazing "go to" items in town - Buffalo Chicken Salad, pineapple fajitas, or my own special at Rockin Relics - a hamburger with pepperjack cheese, jalepenos and bbq sauce! How can one go wrong?!
If you're feeling a little bland go out and try something new! Top it by going to your local grocery store and buying a new spice! Experiment and enjoy!
