Potato Ribbons

Monday, January 15, 2018, 08:38 PM

I [tried] to make baked potato ribbons by roating them at 425°F for about 25 minutes. I had tossed some Everything Bagel Seasoning on them. It was mostly Yukon Gold with a few [old] sweet potatoes.

Saldy, the bottom ones got burned and the upper rack ones were undercooked. And none of them tasted like the seasoning.


Taco Stew

Sunday, January 14, 2018, 08:11 PM

I made our usual Taco Stew except with Quorn Crumbles instead of beef (and yellow squash instead of zucinni). It was pretty good and I like it being vegetarian style1. I would do that again...or just skip it all together.

  1. It still had chicken soup base. 

Lasagna Soup Flourentine

Friday, January 12, 2018, 07:54 PM

I made the usual Lasagna Soup and added a few handfuls of spinach. I didn't taste it at all but it does add some nutrients. We also did it with roasted tomato basil ravioli

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 08:53 PM

Meredith was having a pregnancy craving for muffins so she made herself some Peanut Butter Banana Muffins from Wholesome (LOCAL). She followed the basic recipe with the only changes being:

They needed to be baked a little longer than the recipe called for but were otherwise pretty good. The texture was a bit different than a regular muffin but not exactly bad.

Turkey Marsala

Tuesday, January 09, 2018, 07:48 PM

I made turkey marsala. I used the same recipe as last time except I did it with ground turkey. I first browned a pound of lean turkey and set it aside. I then sauteed an onion and later added a big thing of mushrooms. After they were browned, I took them out of the pan and proceeded with the recipe for the sauce. (with 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream)

Once the sauce was all together, I mixed back in the mean and veggies. While they were simmering, I made a serving or two of linguine and spiralized 3 yellow squash.

I mixed it all with the heat off so as to not cook the squash too much (which worked but did cool the sauce). It made four really big servings.

I liked it though it could have used a lot more salt! I liked how easy it was by not having to make the meatballs seperatly!

I would do this again. It really isn't too unhealthy. It was just 3 tbsp of butter in the whole thing.

Pesto Eggs Benedict (Pasteurized)

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 08:48 PM

While I had reuben bowls, Meredith wanted [Pasteurized] Eggs benedict. I pasteurized the eggs in the sous vide at 135°F for 3 hours (actually, you're only supposed to do 2 but we were running around).

I followed the same hollandaise as I had been doing. I again did the pesto but I tried to add the pesto after making it but it didn't work well. Next time, I think I would go back to putting the pesto in the butter.

I did use a new trick. To add the butter without making a huge mess, I poured the butter onto the lid and let it seep down slowly!

Meredith fried up the poached eggs. We also heated the [no nitrates] turkey until it was steaming.

It was pretty good. A bit too lemony and I wish it were hotter (again, I added the frozen pesto afterwards)

Reuben Bowl

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 08:28 PM

I've been looking to make this for a while! It is basically a reuben in a bowl. I started with rye berries (had ot buy them on Amazon) and cooked them (1 cup) with the directions on the bag. I drained a thing of sauerkraut and then mixed it with some frozen caramelized onions. I chopped up a bit over a 1/2 pound of Boars Head Corned Beef and lacy (low fat) swiss. Finally, I used Kraft Fat Free Thousand Island.

I liked the idea and it was fine. Not the most amazing thing by far. Not sure if it healthier than a real sandwich. I was actually originally going to make two servings out of it, but it grew so I made three!

Twice Baked Potatoes

Friday, January 05, 2018, 08:57 PM

Meredith made twice baked potatoes as she had done before.

After baking them for ~1.5 hr at 400°F, and letting them cool, she hollowed them out and made the filling with:

We skipped the horseradish since it was past it's date and we played it safe.

Meredith did the second bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes.

I made a quick topping by sauteeing some (no nitrates added) roast beef and then some spinanach. We topped them with some leftover cheddar

They were really good. Meredith did a really good job with the filling! Carb filled meal but still not too bad.

Next time, I woudl add some caramelized onion.
