Tuna Cabbage Crunch

Monday, August 02, 2021, 08:08 PM

I can't seem to find this from the past but Meredith made her regular "Tuna Cabbage Crunch". It is two cans of tuna, cole slaw chopped cabbage, a mix of mayo and greek yogurt, and Fox Point seasoning.

It was good! And healthier than regular tuna salad.

Thai Pumpkin Custard

Saturday, July 31, 2021, 07:06 PM

I made Pumpklin Custard [Simple Thai Food]

I did 1.25x so as to make five portions. We didn't have light brown sugar so the plan was to do half dark and half white for a total of 170 grams. Well, I messed up and did all dark and it was too late after I added it. The coconut milk also had tons of bits in it!

And I messed up and forgot to cover them. So lots of mistakes all around.

I liked it enough though it was far from amazing. I liked the kabocha squash though it was not very sweet.

Mango Sticky Rice

Friday, July 30, 2021, 08:19 PM

Meredith made Mango and Sweet Coconut Sticky Rice [Simple Thai] for gluttonfest

Also used this guide (LOCAL). Did not use the instant pot because already soaked.

For the coconut topping, she used cake flour instead of rice flour in the cream since all we had was glutinous rice flour (Mochiko) and we didn’t know what that would do

The final result was pretty good! We used the instant pot to serve (but not cook). The flavor was really good and it went over well! The coconut cream topping needed to be used sparingly as it wasn't sweet at all but as long as you did that, the mix of salty and sweet worked well!

Zucchini Strata

Thursday, July 29, 2021, 08:18 PM

Meredith made Zucchini Breakfast Casserole [The Kitchn]

She added 1/2 tsp, and a good glug of olive oil to bowl and tossed the zucchini and bread in it. This makes up for skipping the bacon. Also, was feeling lazy so I used pre-shredded Mexican blend cheese. I forgot the black pepper entirely.

Made fresh cooked a lot easier. Still took longer than they said but it was easier.

The bread was super stale when we froze it which worked well. Meredith was able to break it up from frozen and didn't need to cut it or anything!

Grilled Peaches and Ice Cream

Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 08:04 PM

We made grilled peaches. We followed The Kitchn but not copying it in. Basically, coat peaches with olive oil and grill for 4 min per side.

The peaches were weird. They weren't bad but I think too much grill flavor was picked up. And we served it with Blue Bell Black Walnut Ice Cream. That was also pretty old but it wasn't bad.

This was a fun and new way to each peaches so that was fun. Bisecting them was really hard though since the pit really wanted to stick. I tried to cut it out as best I could to mixed success.

Chicken Tawook

Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 08:01 PM

I made the regular Tawook. I actually prepped this a few days before so it had a lot of time to marinate.

It was very good as usual. I do wish I could get it to stick less to the grill. But otherwise it was pretty tasty!

Also served with grilled broccolini and tahini sauce. And some way-overgrown radishes (that weren't very good). And store bought flat bread

Koefta Burgers

Tuesday, July 27, 2021, 08:04 PM

I made koefta turkey burgers. I used the regular recipe with lean turkey. I only had a pound but I made the same amount of spices (probably going heavy on the herbs). I made four patties and grilled them. Served with (fresh from the garden) cucumber and Trader Joes Garlic Spread (aka Toum).

Very good as usual! I like these spices in burger form.

Peach Compote Mascarpone Cream Brown Butter Jelly Roll

Friday, July 23, 2021, 08:33 PM

Following my Char Siu Chicken on a Stick for the same theme Meredith made a jelly roll to look like a stick (a la a yule log). She used RECIPE as inspiration for the filling and used the "Swiss Roll" from Avocado Emoji Swiss Roll (and Inlay Paste) [Heather Baird]. For topping it, she used brown butter frosting. Some leftover from (I think) 2021-02-14 and then some more from the same recipe.

The compote was really good and we thought it would stand up well to the strong brown butter flavor. Unfortunately, we were wrong. While the cake was delicious, you couldn't really even taste the peaches!
