First meal, cooked last night, was a Cuban steak recipe - marinate in an adobo made of garlic, salt, pepper, lime juice, and cumin. Reserve half the adobo before putting it on the meat and baste the steak with it after you turn it over. Also an Asian-style potato where you slice up a potato and put it in a foil packet with butter and a sauce made of soy sauce, toasted sesame seeds, and garlic, then dropping the packet on the grill for 20-30 minutes.
Whitel theyw ere both good and we'll make them again, I wouldn't say that those dishes went with each other. Not that we expected them to: we picked them on the basis of actually having all those ingredients on hand so we didn't have to leave the house to go shopping. We'll put up with a lot of discordant menu items if it means we don't have to leave the house.
