Gourmet Day #1

Nov. 22, 2009

In an attempt to beef up my culinary skills, I have decided to make one meal a week that will push my culinary limits. After all they say if you don’t challenge yourself you won’t improve. One night each weekend I have decided to attempt to cook a gourmet masterpiece. This Sunday it was Moroccan Chicken and Mango Salsa with Pureed Potatoes. For some cooking wizards this may not really qualify as hard, but it used up almost every pot/pan in my kitchen. In my book that qualifies at tricky.
Moroccan Chicken

Mango Salsa

Pureed Potatoes

Instead of rice I opted to use some leftover quinoa I had in the fridge. I have just gotten into making quinoa, since it is the superfood of the moment, and it is quite delicious!

My meal was a success! I have moved up one rung on the top chef ladder. It looked kinda like the picture in my cook book and smelled like it tasted, very yummy! Pretty soon you will be seeing me on the Food Network:)
