Cilantro Vinaigrette

Sunday, January 20, 2019, 08:05 PM

I made Taste of Texas's Cilantro Vinaigrette. While I followed their recipe, it came out very thin and super, super blended (probably because of the Vitamix). I added the oil slowly but it still did not get a great emulsion as it later separated in the fridge (which is also surprising given the Vitamix). I think the flavor was pretty good though not as good as it is in the restaurant.

Carne Adovada

Friday, January 18, 2019, 08:03 PM

I made Carne Adovada. Like I did on Thanksgiving, I used half hot and half mild though Meredith still thought it was hot.

I followed the recipe but I considered adding a roux to thicken it up. I think I may try that next time to give the sauce a bit more texture.

Pictured is one night we served it with fried polenta cakes. That was pretty good though it was hard to get them to crisp and not stick to the pan.

Lasagna Soup

Pretty standard Lasagna Soup. Used shaved parmesean instead of grated which I think is better

Stuffed Mushroom Casserole with Chicken

Tuesday, January 15, 2019, 07:20 PM

I made what is becoming our pretty standard mushroom casserole. In fact, I moved the recipe, with it's changes to its own recipe page. The biggest note for today is that I used some crushed red pepper in making the breadcrumbs and I liked the additional spice.

I actually prepped the chicken and mushrooms on Sunday and then added the cheese and breadcrumbs to finish it today.

Really good as usual!

Cava Bowls

Meredith made herself Cava Grill inspired lunch bowls which we also had for dinner later in the week. I will come back and update this when I have the details but it is:

and probably other stuff I missed.

  1. Guessing at which recipe she used 

Roasted Tomato Soup and Philly Melts

Sunday, January 13, 2019, 07:19 PM

I made spiced tomato soup and grilled Philly Melts

Spiced Tomato Soup

I was craving soup and I saw this recipe on /r/GifRecipes for Spiced Tomato Soup (reddit,gtfcat,MOB's site) (LOCAL)

I followed the soup recipe with some changes as noted below (nothing major)

Ingredient Changes:

I was going to blend it in the vitamix so I let it simmer for 10 minutes, then I blended it, and then I let it simmer for a really long time (doing baby stuff and prepping other meals).

My other notes (after blending):

I didn't love it at first but I came to like it as I ate it more. It is pretty flavorful and kind of spicy. I liked the vinegar too. It added a nice bite.

Philly Melts

I do not know where we got this idea, but I made philly melts. I used Steak-Ums and made it two slices at a time (12 total for 4 sandwiches). I also used a bit too much oil on the pan with some onions but the end result was not too oily. We used havarti cheese since Meredith doesn't like provelone.

I did let Meredith do the grilling since I tend to burn them (and myself). They weren't as good as I had hoped. I think they needed some more salt in the filling.

Also, I planned three slices per sandwich but it was too much and there was some leftover steak.

Chili Potatoes

Saturday, January 12, 2019, 09:27 PM

Nothing particularly special, but I wanted to note that change from the first time we didn chili poatoes. I diced up Yukon Gold, roasted them at 400 (I think) for about 30 minutes. We liked this more than a whole baked potato.

Taco Stew

Meredith made Taco Stew.
