Sesame Salmon and Noodles

Mmmm.... don't you just love salmon?!  It was on sale this past week so I picked up a couple of packages and wanted to try something out of the norm.  We all like Asian-influenced food so when I saw Sesame Salmon with Noodles I knew it was worth a try.  I changed the recipe up some based on what we had in the fridge and pantry.
 
I used were Shanghai Noodles, at least I think that's what they are called, but you could use ramen noodles or even rice.  The green peas came straight from my uncle's garden.  My cousin had hand delivered them during Hurricane Igor. It was only now that I used them, but they kept fresh and tasted great.
 
Myself & Millard liked the meal although we thought that the sesame seeds were a little overpowering.  Christian loves anything that consists of seafood so it was a bit hit with him  and Alexander, as you can tell, loved the snow peas.
 
Next time I think that I'd like to make a little extra marinade to reduce and pour over the noodles or even the salmon.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

My Pinterest Inspired Asian Meal

This is a meal that we had last week that was entirely planned using Pinterest.  Thoe of you who know me well are well aware of my addiction to Pinterest.  Yes, addiction.  It has even been said that I need a Pin-tervention.  :)   I cannot help it though, I not only enjoy looking for recipe this way, but I have found it very helpful in meal planning.  I now even have weekly menu boards created on Pinterest to organize my weekly meal plans.  It has become a great tool.  So I guess you could say that this meal, in a small way, does prove that I actually do make recipes that I find on there. :)   Anyway, I was in the mood for a different kind of bbq meal so I choose to make Asian Grilled Drumsticks, Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw, Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash, and plain white rice.   Early in the day I put the salads together and because there were so many vegetables it involved a bit of prep work.  Plus l thought it would be a good idea to get the vegetables maridnad…
