On my way home from work an idea struck me. Fajitas for dinner. We haven't had them for an entire year. At least, I don't remember ever making them at our current place of residence. I think my cooking skills have improved greatly since the last time I made fajitas. These were quite excellent, but I guess it really all just comes down to the fact that I cooked the peppers and onions correctly. Just a splash of oil, a pinch of salt, and a quick saute over med-high heat until nice and translucent. Laura and I always put the wrapped fajita back on the heat to get a nice crispy finish.
I also make some chocolate chip cookies last night, sort of on a whim. This was the 3rd thing I made in my new Kitchen-Aid mixer. Let me tell you, that thing kicks ass. It made what is usually a bowl juggling mess into a quick and easy. Although it was unclear whether I should let the machine mix in the chocolate chips or not. Between that, my new scooper (to make consistently portioned cookies) and my scale, baking is a breeze! I can't wait to tackle more challenging things like pie crusts, or even loaves of bread!
