Zucchini Buffalo Salad (with Sous Vide Chicken)

Tuesday, June 28, 2016, 06:20 PM (2016-06-28_182046)

We made a zucchini buffalo salad based on this Kitchn recipe & the croutons (Local for both). At the very least, it was based on their recipes.


I decided to sous-vide the chicken. I bagged the chicken with some Franks Red Hot and did it at 145 for an hour and a half (based on my suggestion on 2016-05-15) This was a nice amount of time and temp. The chicken was juicy and moist and was a nice consistency.


I used their recipe with some sourdough but I wasn't super impressed. I added the Franks to the (possibly too hot?) oil and it splattered everywhere. I then added the bread which absorbed all of the oil and then burned little pieces on. It was kind of a mess. What was left was flavoful but kind of mush

Dressing & Salad

Rather than use their dressing, Meredith made her own. She mixed some fat free greek yogurt, Penzeys's Ranch, Penzeys's powdered roasted garlic, and some almond-cashew milk. Very low calorie and flavorful.

No cheese in the dressing. We just used it (Cambozola) on the salad. The salad was just spiralized zucchini


The ideas were pretty good. I liked the super-low calorie dressing and the chicken came out very good. Meredith thought the cheese was a bit much (even though Cambozola is not super "blue"). I thought it was small enough amounts.

As I noted, the croutons were a bit of a mess but really not too bad.

Chicken Skewers and Kohlrabi Gratin

Sunday, June 26, 2016, 06:10 PM (2016-06-26_181020)

We had bought some pre-assembled chicken skewers for the night before and didn't end up needing them so we had them for dinner. They were Chicken Teriyaki. We just baked them for about 25 minutes at 375 with the Kohlrabi Gratin.

We did the same Kohlrabi Gratin as last time with most of the same changes except we actually had the Kohlrabi greens. It was, again, pretty good. We like this and will do it again.

7(ish) Layer dip

Saturday, June 25, 2016, 05:55 PM (2016-06-25_175551)

We were invited to a friend's house and Meredith decided to make 7(ish) layer dip. There were really 6 layers but one had different things. We skipped olives.

We based it very roughly on this Brown Eyed Baker (Local) recipe. Mostly just the order and the enhancement to the beans

They were, (in order)

It was really good. We would do this again

Cheese and Snacks for Dinner

Friday, June 24, 2016, 08:00 PM (2016-06-24_200000)

A Meredith Meal! Brooke was visiting and we wanted to make a "chill out and relax" type meal.

We made Crab and Corn Salad (from 2013-08-17), Romesco sauce and then a tray with:

  1. Whole Foods stocks a different kind than I've had elseware. I think it is supposed to be closer to prosciutto but I think this one is thicker and better  

Sausage and Onions

Thursday, June 23, 2016, 11:20 AM (2016-06-23_112033)

We made another quick meal. Just sautéed some onions and peppers in a bit of butter. We did this in the cast iron to get it nicely cooked. Then added chopped up Trader Joes' Spinach, Fontina, and Roasted Garlic Chicken sausage.

Good and fast meal! (again)

Lobster Tails and Toast with Green Sauce

Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 08:17 PM (2016-06-21_201736)

Another simple meal. We butterflied two lobster tails and cooked them on the gril pan1. We actually ended up taking them out of the shell later and cooking it some more. I think we should start planning to start it in the shell but deshell it and keep cooking it before we serve it to make sure it si fully cooked.

We also had a fried egg on toast. Everything was topped with cilantro sauce/dip.

  1. I think we can start doing these on the regular cast iron. You never see the grill lines anyway 

Black Bean and Feta Salad

Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 11:37 AM (2016-06-21_113730)

Meredith made the Black Bean and Feta salad (from 2016-03-09) with the same basic changes but without crab. I do not know what else she changed but it wasn't much. These were what we took for lunch two days this week

Seared Salmon and Sautéed Asparagus

Tuesday, June 14, 2016, 12:00 AM (2016-06-14_000000)

We made a quick dinner. I made the usual seared salmon with Meredith's cilantro sauce/dip. There wasn't much more to this one. Though I do not think I would waste the dip on this again since the flavors didn't really come through much.

Meredith the asparagus thing. It was really good and she said pretty easy. Here are her steps
