This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

Cajun chicken salad


This wonderful meal is thanks to Tricia! who got tired of me whining about not having the right spices to make food I want, so she sent me a pre-Christmas care package. There is one thing she'll notice she didn't get -- my Costco size Tabasco! It's big! The smoked chiptole Tabasco is already a large sized one and it looks miniature next to mine regular flavor. Should have put a normal size one next to it for emphasis. LOL
Cajun chicken is one of these trendy dinners in Canada, and not that many supermarkets that north sell Southern spice mixes, not the Safeway near my mom's place. So this was my first attempt at my version and it's easy enough.
Put spice on both sides, then grill. Finish off with the pepper mix. Salad dressing is the Cajun spice with olive oil and vinegar. If it's trendy in Canada, I would market this dish in Tokyo for mmm... $40, if I had it on Elsie's chic new plates.
Once this nagging stomach cramps end, I am making buffalo chicken wings with Lousiana hot sauce and vegetable sticks with blue cheese dip.
And the cake mix. Chocolate Betty Crocker classic, with vanilla Haagen Daaz on top. But it will wait a week, be my PMS treat for myself!
Thanks again Tricia!

Go Tricia :D See that would make entirely too much sense to send care packages with stuff you can't get anywhere else.. :D

Awww SKW.. Niiiiiiice dish Chaki! Though I'm not a spice person so I'd cry about the cajun .. I'll eat the ingredients without the sauce? Er.. that's the point.. oh well it looks pretty and YES they'd look snazzy in my plates :D tehehhehehehehe I'm loving it.. already dropped 2 plates on the floor.. smashed one on the refridgerator and banged a pot next to one of them.. and dropped on in the sink.. and not even a scratch.. /sigh.. I'm a happy girl :D

Oh Tricia, will you settle for a t-shirt to snuggle with??

Elsie, at least you didn't drop a plate on your head.
