Modifications: ¬†Forgot to get a red onion, so just put in more red pepper (not the same, I know, but whatever). I didn’t put sriracha in the cakes, and I forgot cilantro in the cakes.

Time to table: One million hours (real time: one hour) – why is it every single meal Annie claims is “quick” takes me SO long? I didn’t mind at all, I’d been home with the kids all afternoon due to Luke’s fever and no one was in a rush so whatever. It was all the chopping that did me in and if I’d made the salsa in advance that would have helped. Couldn’t happen since I basically held Luke for 5 hours straight.

Servings: Probably 5 adults

Erin: Like+

Ben: Like

Annie: Had maybe 3 bites and then said she was full. No drama about it or anything but clearly wasn’t a huge fan.

Notes: These were quite tasty! I loved the coconut flavor and the salsa was great. Only downfall as always with these types of dinners is that I’m starving at 9pm. (even though I also had 2 baguette pieces as well)
