Well I didn't take any pictures because my kitchen was just whirling with all kinds of things being cooked and people helping me out, but Luke and I had our friends Aaron and Elizabeth over for dinner last night. And since Luke and I have become quite the Take Home Chef addicts, we of course used Curtis's recipes! For the occasion we decided upon Sugar cane skewered shrimp, marinated with lime, chili and chives (minus the sugar cane) with avocado, lemon, and organic yogurt dip, http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/takehomechef/recipes/nicole/sugar-cane-skewered-shrimp.html, which we had tried earlier and the week and absolutely loved! Baby baked potatoes with sour cream and chives, http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/takehomechef/recipes/michelle/baby-baked-potatoes.html. And the main course was Spaghettini of crab, lemon, and parsley, http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/takehomechef/recipes/michelle/spaghettini-crab-lemon-parsley.html. For the Spaghettini we used canned stewed tomatoes instead of boiling our own to save a little time and we also eliminated the ginger because we don't necessarily care for it, but the dish turned out absolutely amazing. I will definitely be making it again!
