Whats For Lunch... and dinner!! Spicy Basil Chicken Wraps and Coconut Curry Chicken Soup!

That's Right- 1 blog post, 2 recipes! Get excited!!

It's always great when you can cook something and use it for multiple meals. That"s what I did today.  I started by boiling 4.5 lbs of chicken quarters.  This was 5 leg/thigh pieces.  I just placed them in a large pot and covered with water, some salt, and about a TBSP apple cider vinegar to help pull some nutrients out of the bones. I brought it to a boil then covered and turned to a simmer and cooked for 90 minutes.  Save the chicken stock you just created for the second recipe!

So for the first meal I decided I would make spicy basil chicken wraps.  Here is what you need and how I did it.

Last Minute Curry Seafood Dinner Recipe

Dr. Tripp and I had an amazing weekend getaway with her parents in Union Pier, Michigan. We visited a few wineries, as well as Greenbush Brewing Company in Sawyer, MI (great food and craft beers for those of you of age). We also stumbled upon the Ice Festival in St. Joseph, MI, which had some incredible ice sculptors (check out the crazy pic!). We even got to cross country ski on the beach. I had no idea that was even an option in life! I felt like I was in a snow globe wonderland. Also enjoyed some Olympic action….GO USA!

What's For Dinner?!

So, Dr. Tripp asked me to write a blog for her today. I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about at first, then I decided I’d write about what I made her for dinner. We had a ton of cilantro left over in the fridge from the Super Bowl, so I figured I better make something with it. I decided to make a cilantro lime sauce. It was actually pretty easy.
