Every race needs a starting block
Ok, while I realize that this is not actually true, it fits my dinner tonight so just go with it. I made two new recipes tonight and both are good starting places, but neither was exactly what I was looking for. The first was actually a recipe for my fiance. His favorite bar food is Buffalo Chicken Strips. He orders them everywhere we go, so I found a recipe for them (with a healthy twist of course). Check it out...
So the final verdict was that it needed to be a bit spicier (though he did say they were pretty spicy, he just likes them to clear his head). We also want a bit more of a crust to the chicken. I may try an oven "fried" chicken recipe next time. We will also bake the sauce on a bit more next time. But this is a recipe that I will hang onto and work with.
The other recipe I tried will not be made again. I made Deli-style Macaroni Salad. I had seen good reviews of it so I was rather excited. However once I tasted it I knew it wasn't going to be the recipe I was looking for. There is white wine vinegar in it (2 Tablespoons to be exact), and that is all I could taste. So the search continues for a really good macaroni salad continues. No more cooking this week (well except for the grilled cheese and tomato soup I plan for Saturday).
