After eating out A LOT while on vacation, I quickly got tired of restaurant food. Now don't get me wrong, I am the first one in the car when my husband suggests that we go out to eat, but every single day gets to be a little much.
So, last night I enjoyed a yummy home cooked meal with Joe, Leah and my newly married girlfriend Chau. Her husband Chris was playing in a baseball game last night, so she was solo. Anyway, on the menu was salad, grilled chicken and corn on the cob. The chicken was grilled with a spice rub on it, which included paprika, cayenne, brown sugar and a few other ingredients (I got the recipe from Rachel Ray's magazine). The salad was something I was trying to recreate from Chau's wedding. It had mixed greens, goat cheese, fresh raspberries, wasabi peas for a little spice and crunch and balsamic vinaigrette.
Let me tell you, this was probably one of the best meals I have had in a while. Like I said, there is truly nothing like a home cooked meal.
