There's a chef among us.....

My poor little food blog, how I have neglected you! I have been cooking and experimenting up a storm in the kitchen, but have not taken the time to share any of it. :-(

This summer, we have had the privilege of having a house guest. Normally, that would not be a privilege, considering this one has stayed for 3 months and my husband and I have lost our bedroom to him.
But all is forgiven....


Yes, that is exactly what I am implying.....he has cooked spectacular food for us all summer! And in the process, I have learned a thing or two about cooking. He has helped us branch out of our bland little food rut. I have been using items like fish sauce and scallops and sushi rice and other such exotic items that had never graced my table in the past.
(Yes, we were boring eaters. It is now out in the open for all to know......)

Here is what he whipped up for us last week...... point of this whole post is that I have discovered several things through having a "chef" live with us.
1) Cooking awesome food is NOT as hard as I once imagined.
2) Cooking awesome food CAN be expensive though.
3) Cooking awesome food is cheaper than eating out and can impress your husband and friends.

I will definitely be trying more adventurous menu items from here on out. It CAN work on a limited budget--you just have to plan ahead and watch for sales!

(Watch out, Food Network! Sarah's in the house!)
