Table Talk: Pad Thai with Shrimp

I have some confessions to make.  I'm not really sure what this is supposed to taste like.  I don't know that I've ever been to a Thai restaurant.  The only Pad Thai I've tasted is from a kit at the grocery store.  So I probably am not the best judge of what Pad Thai should be.  So, just keep that in mind when you read my opinion of how it came together!  Mmmkay?

Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce

Our garden was weird this year.  I guess I shouldn't say that.  I've never gardened in Southern California (kinda) before so maybe it was normal, but I thought it was weird.  The cherry tomatoes were supposed to be the first to ripen!  It said so on the package of seeds.  For some reason, they ripened AFTER some of our other tomato varieties that were supposed to take twice as long.  While I was a little confused as to why these sleeper tomatoes did that, I wasn't upset that we actually got some produce from our plants.

Table Talk: Spice-Rubbed Flank Steak with Toasted Corn and Black Bean Salsa

 I know, I know....How many recipes with corn and black beans can one cooking blog have?  There's never too many, I tell ya.  This recipe was so appealing to me on so many levels.  Not only did it have a plethora of ingredients that I love, it was also labeled 'fast'.  And I do love fast.  Every single weeknight we have something on the schedule and all things seem to fall right when dinner is supposed to be being prepared or eaten.  I like having recipes that are a little flexible, easy to prepare and healthy.  I feel like I get in a rut and cook the same thing over and over to satisfy my need for speed.  I think this will make it into the rut-rotation.
