Cranberry Crumb Bars

Friday, November 25, 2022, 06:05 PM

Meredith (and Caroline) made Cranberry Crumb Bars with Mulling Spices [The Smitten Kitchen]. Also pictured is Costco pumpkin pie cut with cookie cutters.

This was supposed to be dessert for Thanksgiving 2022 but we made it the next day.

Thanksgiving 2022

Thursday, November 24, 2022, 05:37 PM

We got COVID and has to cancel our original plans. Thankfully it was very mild for all of us (yay science and 💉💪) so we made a Thanksgiving meal. Dessert is its own page (and made the next day).

We had actually bought a meatless turkey at Trader Joes. It was their version of Tofurkey but better with its breading. We bought this just to have but decided to make it as our main turkey since I am the only real turkey eater.

The main thing I made was NYTimes Thanksgiving Stuffing1. I used Trader Joes Corn Bread and really tried to stay true to the recipe. My biggest complaints were that (a) No guidance on salt and pepper (I am okay with a starting point and adjust to taste but this was nothing) and (b) too much fennel. Overall, it was fine but not exceptional. I don't think I would hurry to try this recipe again. It wasn't too hard though.

Meredith made Pomegranate, Kale and Wild Rice Salad with Walnuts and Feta with power greens instead of kale.

She also made cranberry sauce based on Very Basic Cranberry Sauce [The Kitchn] but her recipe was:

I also made oven roasted potatoes with butter and garlic.

Chex Mix

Meredith made Chex Mix [A Beautiful Mess]. Her notes:

Balsamic Pesto Brussel Sprout Hash

Sunday, November 20, 2022, 06:34 PM

Meredith read something that inspired this idea for the brussel sprouts. It was just pesto and balsamic vinegar sautéed with olive oil.

Otherwise, we just had Cacio e Pepe Ravioli with Brown Butter Fried Sage1

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Gnocchi

Wednesday, November 09, 2022, 07:02 PM

Pretty simple meal of roasted brussels sprouts (for longer) and then added gnocchi and onions later (though they could have used more time). Not too much else1 except served with a side sausage.

Crispy Seared Salmon

Tuesday, November 08, 2022, 07:38 PM

I made Crispy Seared Salmon. The salmon was super thick so I needed to cook it a bit longer though I think I over cooked it a bit. It didn't help that something (and I am really not sure what) caught fire as you can see below. I am not sure how much this contributed to the overcooked salmon. It still tasted mostly okay.

We also had roasted butternut squash (salt, pepper, rosemary), a bagged salad, and bread from Costco.
