Corn Salad with Tomato, Basil, and Feta

Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 08:16 PM

Meredith made corn salad from The Kitchn (LOCAL). She used a combo of green onion and shallot in place of the red onion. Did about half the cider vinegar and half the olive oil. Used squeezy tube basil instead of fresh.

It was really good and made a ton!

Beef La Lot

Monday, June 17, 2019, 08:42 PM

Meredith had the idea to try Beef La Lot meatballs. We used the seasoning option #2 using McCormick curry powder. We just made the meat and skipped the sauces. Also we didn't wrap them and instead just made them into meatballs. Baked in the oven at 375°F for about 15-18 minutes.

The biggest change was that we tried to use lemongrass from a tube. We wen't light. I think this was certainly not as good as using real lemongrass (at least as much as I can recall). Maybe we just needed to use more? We use the tubes of basil without issue but I do not remember thinking that the lemongrass smelled particularly lemongrassy.

We also roasted broccolini with salt, pepper, and roasted garlic powder for about the same amount of time.

They certainly weren't bad but very fish-saucy.

I made Fajitas using the same seasonings as last time (Montery Chicken, Badia Adobo, Roasted Garlic Powder). This time I froze half for future lunches. There was less chicken this time so I used an additional pepper to add more bulk.

They were pretty good though last time they were better

Soy Chorizo Ragu

Thursday, June 13, 2019, 06:26 PM

Meredith made a (vegetarian) Chorizo Ragu (she changed the name since "Bolognese" is really something different) using the modified recipe from Donna Hay (LOCAL)

Changes: soy chorizo, which is more of a Mexican style chorizo. That led to swapping oregano for the rosemary. Also, no added salt, and only did 1tbsp of the sugar. Topping it with burrata, and did a zucchini noodle/real pasta mix.

Turkey Patties

Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 08:41 PM

Meredith and I made the Ottolenghi Simple Lamb and pistachio patties but we used turkey this time (we've used chicken the other times). Like last time, we baked+broiled them. They got even less color than before. I wonder if we could combine methods to get color but keep it as easy and healthy as baked. They were still good and it was better not having had the mix sit for a while.

We served them with tortillas since it is what we had. They worked fine!

Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Monday, June 10, 2019, 07:50 PM

Lemon Garlic Shrimp with roasted green beans (~20 min at 400°F).

I made a full two pounds so I adjusted up everything. I also still laid it out flat and coated it since last time I made this much it wasn’t as good. (I think last time I tossed it all in a bowl).

I skipped the crushed red pepper so Caroline could still eat it. Also, I think the garlic was a bit older

Deviled Eggs

Monday, June 10, 2019, 10:23 AM

Meredith made Souther Style Deviled Eggs with the only major note being that she used smokes paprika for the garnish.

Pimento Grilled Cheese

Friday, June 07, 2019, 07:49 PM

Meredith made Fosters’ Pimento Cheese earlier in the week which we made into grilled cheese. Also had BBQ bagged salad

Also, the next day, we made pimento cheese quesadilla. That worked okay except that the cheese dripped out
