Beth Fish Reads hosts Weekend Cooking. This is perfect for me since I love food and cooking almost as much as I love books!
I actually did embarrassingly little cooking this week! Despite my resolve to cook after eating so much take-out at my father-in-law's over New Year's, we ended up getting take-out twice this week! First, we discovered our oven was broken, then we started the week with a couple of days of left-overs, and then my chronic illness flared up, so on a busy day, I gave in and we got 5 Guys for dinner. Oh, I know how unhealthy it is, but IT. IS. SO. GOOD! Especially those fries. Then my son had several friends sleep over Friday night, so we ordered pizza.
I finally got cooking this weekend (a bit). We had one of our favorite dinners last night, Cajun Salmon Cakes - so yummy! We had roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus on the side.
Today is my youngest son's 15th birthday (15? how is that possible?), so I will be making him a cake. Both of my boys ask for the same cake for their birthdays every year - Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I use the linked recipe but leave out the coconut and pecans (which they don't like) and instead decorate it with sliced bananas and strawberries, like my mom did when I was a kid (photo is from my older son's birthday this summer).
And that's it for this week! We are going out to dinner for my son's
birthday, but I plan to do more cooking this week. Hope you are enjoying
your food and cooking this week!
