That italian cookbook sounds good - you'll have to let us know if you try it out. No, I made up the chicken recipe. I mixed 2T coconut oil, 1 T ginger paste, and 2T of cilantro paste, squished boneless skinless chicken thighs through it, then threw them in a frying pan til they were done. I added sea salt and pepper before eating. The sauce stayed on the chicken really well, I was afraid it would all slide off in the pan so I didn't move them around much while cooking.
Tonight I cooked salmon in a little coconut oil, then wilted spinach in bacon grease with a little chopped thai basil and edible hibiscus. It was amazing. Most of my cooking is very, very simple but I wouldn't mind expanding the repertoire.
I had to cook ahead because for the next 3 days I'll be at a seminar where the food options are horrendous conventional only. So there's more chicken, salmon, etc. in little containers in the fridge ready to go. I don't care if people think I'm a dork for bringing my meals, and who knows, it might make for interesting lunchtime conversation.
