Grilled Shrimp, Tomato, and Corn Salad with Grilled Okra

Saturday, June 27, 2020, 07:53 PM

Meredith and I made Grilled Shrimp, Tomato, and Corn Salad and Grilled Okra for us and her family visiting.

We did the same basic thing except I seasoned the shrimp since I forgot it was going in the salad. Also, the okra were bigger and I should have cooked them a bit longer.

I do like the recipe, but I think I prefer it without the salad "dressing" it all. I'd rather have grilled shrimp with a side of corn, tomato, and onions.

As I said, the okra needed more time but was still good.

Egg Salad

(no picture)

Meredith put together egg salad for a picnic. She used the basic idea from southern deviled eggs with the noted change of mostly greek yogurt and just a spoonful of mayo. It makes it much healthier!

She basically did it like deviled eggs too. She made the "filling" and then added cut of egg whites as opposed to doing it all together. It is different than what I would have done but it worked! The egg salad was very good.

Spicy Salmon Black Bean Salad

Meredith made Salmon Black Bean Salad from The Kitchn (LOCAL). She used the honey smoked salmon we get at Costco

IKEA Swedish Meatballs

Thursday, June 25, 2020, 07:35 PM

I made IKEA Swedish Meatballs for a (responsibly socially distanced) dinner with the Pettits. Earlier in the pandemic, IKEA tweeted the recipe and The Washington Post did a writeup (LOCAL for both).

For the meatballs, I basically followed the recipe but used some red onion. Next time I must dice it up better!!! (see the photo below). I also used panko breadcrumbs which I "ground" in my hand a bit. I baked them at 400°F for about 17 minutes rather than frying them. I used 85-88% lean beef and whatever pork Kellers had.

I made the sauce in the Instant Pot so we could travel and keep it warm. I used Better Than Bouillon Chicken instead of beef broth. I also used too much and it was already really salty so I skipped the soy sauce.

You can see in the photo that the sauce was very thick. I may have let the rough go too long or messed up some of the measurements.

But they were really good! Indulgent (especially the sauce) but very tasty.

Again, next time (if there is one) I will grind the onions better.

Warn Zucchini Quinoa Salad

Meredith made a repeat of 2020-05-23 for lunch. It was very good!

BBQ Pulled Jackfruit and Grilled Okra

Wednesday, June 24, 2020, 08:13 PM

Meredith used the jackfruit BBQ recipe from Inspiralized (LOCAL) except just thinly sliced the onions rather than spiralized them. It wasn't bad at all. But it also was less interesting than real pulled pork. And since young jackfruit is apparently not particularly nutritious, we probably won't rush to do it again.

The okra recipe came from The Kitchn (LOCAL). We were very impressed with it and ended up eating a good bit of okra. The sauce was also very tasty! We will be doing this one again soon

And Meredith really felt adventurous and made her own Hawaiian rolls

The coleslaw came out very sweet for some reason.

Hawaiian Rolls

Wednesday, June 24, 2020, 08:12 PM

Meredith made Hawaiian rolls, almost on a whim. They were for the BBQ Jackfruit

She used the recipe from The Perfect Egg. She followed the recipe closely but adjusted the flour down a bit by feel as the dough came together. And she did it all by hand! It was a half batch

They were really good and made for a nice and fun addition to dinner.

We calculated about 210 calories per roll.

Tofu Satay and Smacked Cucumber

Tuesday, June 23, 2020, 08:24 PM

So many fell off!

We made Tofu Satay. I do not know what was up today but so many of the tofus fell off the skewer. Some were recovered and others were lost to the grill. I don't know if maybe I cut it poorly or what?

Meredith tried using apple cider vinegar instead of distilled. I couldn't tell the difference but Meredith said it wasn't as good.

Also, instead of the normal relish, Meredith made Smacked Cucumbers. Didn't really "go" with the dish but we preferred it
