I don't have any pretty pics to show yet. Things are still looking U-G-L-Y! Our contractor went ahead and installed the stove and dishwasher even though he's going to have to pull them both out when he comes back to rip out my water damaged floor and replace it with the new hardwood. The new wood has been ordered though so hopefully he'll be able to get started sooner rather than later.
Until this kitchen gets tore up from the floor up, here's a look at the new girl in town!
Isn't she pretty :) Now imagine a white subway tile backsplash and black range hood. Can you see it?
We went with Frigidaire Professional because
I broke in the new girl last night! I'm not the best cook, but I do have a few crowd favorites. This one is a personal favorite of mine. I call it spicy garlic edamame, which is basically the three ingredients used to create this dish. I'm good with the names aren't I? Blog title - Our Fifth House - because we're living in our fifth house :)
Anyways, time to dish:
Steam your frozen edamame. Then drain and remove from heat. Go once around your pan with EVOO.
Then add as much garlic as you'd like. I usually do about half a teaspoon.
When the garlic starts to speak, add in your cooked edamame. Mix it around a little, then add as much ground chili pepper as you'd like. You could also use red pepper flakes or ground red pepper. I used a chipotle chili pepper last night. I like it hot, hot, hot, so I add a LOT! Then add a pinch of kosher salt and ground pepper. That's it!
It's soooo good! A great healthy side or appetizer that takes all of maybe 10-15 minutes from start to pop-it-in-your-mouth goodness! My daughter likes her edamame plain, so I just set aside a handful for her before adding it to the pan.
Dinner was simple last night. Spicy garlic edamame with a miso noodle & tofu soup! So good! Honestly though, I could have heated up a can of Campbell's soup and it would have been the best thing we'd ever tasted. It was just so nice to be able to cook again! With the added bonus of not having to hand wash anything! Holla!
Do you have any great 3 or 4 ingredient recipes you'd like to share? I'm in to the simple stuff :)
Have a great weekend!
