I am trying a new recipe for dinner tonight - this.
I found the recipe on Pinterest, and I only needed to use about 1/2 can of coconut milk. Because I wanted to use the remaining coconut milk, I did a google search. I found Emeril's recipe for coconut cream pie.
I remembered that Rob really enjoyed coconut cream pie at a cool restaurant when we were in Florida - so I decided to make one! The recipe called for whole milk, but I substituted in the remaining coconut milk for part of the milk in the recipe.
The jury is still out on whether or not either of these recipes will be a hit - but it was really fun mixing new ingredients and anticipating how they will taste! I'll keep you posted.
For now, here are some pictures of the fun I've had this afternoon!
