Entertaining for A Few (Awesome Friends!)...

One of my favorite new magazines that I was introduced to this last year is Kinfolk, a wonderful magazine/book filled with absolute wonder. It's got some fantastic stories, essays, and recipes that make you want to do everything this book contains. So, when I received the latest beautiful issue, I decided it was time to have a couple of my closest friends over for dinner! I always enjoy entertaining people; the cooking, the setting of the table, the wonderful smells of food coking on the stove. The menu was as follows:
~Curried Chicken Spinach Tostadas w/homemade salsa                       
~Mixed Greens Salad w/homemade blackberry red wine vinaigrette 
~Jasmine Limeade (from the Kinfolk Magazine)                                                                      
~Mango Sorbet

The dinner was so good, it disappeared way to quickly, I have to (yes, have to) share the chicken tostada recipe with you!
Chicken Spinach Tostadas
  • 4 Chicken Thighs
  • 1/2 pkg. Spinach, chopped into large pieces
  • 1 can Black Eyed Peas
  • Curry Powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Vegetable Broth
  • 1 1/2 TBL. Sesame Oil
Take the chicken, sprinkle salt, pepper, and curry powder on top and rub into the chicken. Heat olive oil in a pan and add the chicken. Cook thoroughly and remove from pan, chop into medium bite-size pieces. Add the spinach and black eyed peas into the pan and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the chicken, cooking for about 5 mins, mixing in the veggie broth and sesame oil. Serve on top of fried (in olive oil) corn tortillas and spoon some salsa on top. Enjoy!
