Thai Curry Soup
This was really good! I didn't have any lemongrass so that was left out. I did 1/2 Tbsp. freshly grated ginger instead of the dried, increased the garlic to 2 cloves, increased the red curry paste to 1 Tbsp (we like it spicy), used 2 chicken breasts instead of shrimp (cut into strips and boiled in the soup), and only used 2.5 oz of spinach (it was all I had). I didn't have cilantro and green onions, so they were left out; I don't think they were needed. I'm sure had I had everything on hand and made it as written, it would have been great! I will probably decrease the chicken broth by half next time, for a thicker consistency. My kids wanted more mushrooms, so I will increase that next time as well. My husband said he would prefer it over rice, but we all enjoyed the noodles. I look forward to leftovers!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing
This was great! I used apple cider vinegar instead if white, and left out the lime zest. I also didn't add the hot sauce because we didn't have any. I had a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and just used the sauce from the can and not the peppers. It was spicy, but delicious! Everyone in my family loved it, and I can't wait to make it again.

Wassail Punch
We all loved this! It was a little tart, but I would prefer that over it being too sweet. I might try cutting the lemon in half next time, but really loved the flavor! No added sugar which is really a bonus!
