Kamikazi is in-between projects right now. So he is at home. That's right. Vacation time.

Now that he is home, I have to cook for two at lunch time, which was never the case before. I used to make do with left-overs, snacks or whatever I could get my hands on in the pantry slash fridge. The thing is, I like cooking for two at lunch-time. Maybe because I haven't been doing it more often. I like the fact the my dude is home during daylight hours on a weekday, which is making me feel all warm and fuzzy and happy inside. So the outrageous lunch.

I made Paneer Sheesh Kabobs once before, took pictures and didn't upload them. Putting it off for some unfathomable reason and blaming it on God almighty. As usual. So without any more excuses I am uploading them today. It came out pretty good considering Kamikazi said, "It tastes good". This from a guy who does not indulge in anything other than grunts when it comes to eating food cooked by me.

Also today, I made Baked Ziti. They have come out good too. Need to freeze the rest for later. When I am not feeling all warm and fuzzy and happy and don't want to cook lunch anymore, they will be thawed.

Paneer Kabab

What you need:
  • Paneer (cottage cheese) cubed
  • Green bell peppers, Onions (cut into 2" slices)
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Shan kabab masala
  • Yogurt (1 cup)
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon juice to garnish

What you do:
  • Shan masalas are the best, they are like the one stop shop for spices and it eliminates the use of anything extra. You mix the masala with the yogurt and whisk to a smooth paste, a dash of salt and marinate the paneer and veggies for several hours. Remember they need to be coated properly.
  • Alternate cubes of paneer, tomatoes, green peppers and onions squares on the skewers.
  • Barbeque them big time or till they are cooked the way you like it.
  • If you are using a conventional oven, preheat it for 400 degrees and then broil for 10-12 minutes.
  • Garnish with the lemon juice and serve.

I haven't used the veggies this particular time, I usually do and I suggest that you guys do too. Alrighty?

Baked Ziti

This is like the most simple recipe ever. Kamikazi has this app called iCookbook on his android phone which I was browsing through yesterday when I stumbled upon the recipe and I must say I loved it. So I made it for lunch today. If you do not have the app, no worries, you can check the recipe out HERE.

Isn't this awesome. Two recipes in one post. That's a first. Will be back with outfit pictures on my next post which, in my case, will hopefully be soon. I am a silly girl. I waste sarcasm on myself.

**All food related pictures are by me. It's true!
