Meredith had a craving for BLTs. We used fresh tomatoes and bread1 from the Corrales Growes' Market. The bread was a green-chile sourdough.

Anyway, we made baked thick-cut bacon in the oven at 400°F for about 15 minutes and assembled them with a mixute of butter-lettuce and baby kale, and a tiny bit of Avocado Oil Mayo.

I had mine open face (on the smaller slices of bread) and Meredith made a sandwich.

We also had asparagus tossed with smoked salt (which I didn't toss very evenly) roasted at 400°F for 6 minutes.

Broccoli Tofu


Simple and easy Brococli Beef Tofu. Made a small serving just for me using Trader Joes Baked (and marinated) Tofu. Easy, simple, and delicious

Peach Cobbler


Meredith made Pantry Peach Cobbler from Southern Kitchen (LOCAL). She followed the recipe pretty closely excepted it needed more time in the oven than we would have expected.

We liked it enough though you could tell it was canned peaches. And while it was good, it was certainly not the best cobbler. Great for a pantry type dish though,

Koefta Tacos


We were going to make Koeftas but decided to do tacos instead since they are easier. We also had it with the Dole BBQ Ranch salad bags we like.



We again went to the Corrales Growes' Market and got really good bread and tomatoes so we decided to do BLTs again.

We also had another bag of the BBQ Ranch salad.

Hotdogs and Eggplant


The original plan was to grill hotdogs and eggplant but timing and weather didn’t work in our favor.

I did the hotdogs in a sauté pan with some pam. I then stir-fried the eggplant cubed and then use Soyaki. It was pretty good though maybe a bit mushy.

Egg Salad and Pimento Cheese


Meredith made Smokey Egg Salad with the same idea as last time. The only real difference is she also added a tiny bit of mayo to smooth it and give some tang (I liked the addition).

Also, not pictured, she made the new recipe for pimento cheese again from Foster's Market except instead of parmesean, she used Trader Joes Unexpected Cheddar which has a parm bite to it.

(pictured is also a leftover hot dog)

Koefta Meatballs


Another week, another new way to try Koeftas. Pretty straight forward this time. I did the full normal recipe but made it into meatballs. I baked them at 375°F for 15ish minutes. I liked it this way a lot. They are still not as good as truly grilled, but I think I liked it more than "tacos". They were a bit dry which could have been from the turkey too.

I also made harissa and we served it with Trader Joes Eggplant Hummus
