I got Thug Kitchen as a grab bag gift for Christmas (two years ago – eek), and since then it has sat on my living room coffee table as pretty as can be. I mean seriously, these designers knew what I was looking for when they put this book together. It’s gorgeous, and the writing is both witty and hilarious.
The other night I was paging through it and Alex said, “We should eat our way through Thug Kitchen. Seriously, let’s start at the beginning and make a recipe every week.”
I smiled. This is one of those sorta crazy but incredibly awesome ideas that I would usually come up with. Man I love this guy.
We decided we’d rate the Thug Kitchen meals on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the best meal we’ve ever had. I’m very happy to say, we would definitely make this recipe again. Plus, as meat eaters (especially Alex), this was a welcomed change – and he didn’t miss the meat at all.
Next week it’s Lentil Tacos with Carrot Jicama Slaw. I’ll report back then.
