I was making dinner tonight and Keegan was watching me cut cilantro. He asked why I wasn't using the roller coaster. At first I had no idea what he was talking about. Then it dawned on me that he was talking about the herb cutter. He's right, what was I thinking? He may not like gourmet food but he sure knows his way around kitchen implements.
By the by, I was making the next installment in our world tour of meatloaf, Rio Grande Meat Loaf, which was spicy but good. I forgot the salsa that is suggested as a serving option but the corn on the cob helped cut the bite.
Last night we made Marinated Salmon with Mango-Kiwi Relish which was excellent and will definitely be served again. It was great for lunch today too. The night before we did a repeat recipe, Three-Cheese Chicken Penne Florentine, that it turns out we made last year at this time. It is also good as leftovers.
