Seared Salmon and BBQ Wings

Wednesday, February 10, 2021, 08:33 PM

I had BBQ oven fried wings and I made seared salmon with cilantro chile sauce for Meredith and Caroline (well, Caroline's didn't have sauce).

The wings were only dry-brined for about 10 hours but I think that actually worked pretty well! The sauce was butter, BBQ Sauce, and a bit of sriracha.

Turmeric Pineapple Carrot Smoothie

Meredith made a Turmeric Pineapple Carrot Smoothie from Yay for Food (LOCAL). Her notes:

Did about a quarter of the recipe roughly, plus a scoop of vanilla protein powder.

Scallops and Green Beans

Tuesday, February 09, 2021, 08:49 PM

We made sous vide scallops for our anniversary dinner (a day late). We used a frozen scallops (defrosted) from Costco. To cook them sous vide, I followed the guide from Izzy Cooking (LOCAL including PDF of page with helpful tips). We did 30 min at 130°F and then the ice-bath. I put some butter in the bag as well.

We super-seared them in butter when they were done. I think next time, we would probably try a lower heat and maybe even the full recipe here. Ours were really good but the outside was still a tad chewy. We served them on cilantro green sauce made with jalapeños.

Meredith also made her favorite green beans. And we had store-bought bread.

Finally, we had brookies for dessert

Mint Brookies

Tuesday, February 09, 2021, 04:49 PM

Meredith made Peppermint-Chocolate Brookies from Better Homes and Gardens (LOCAL) to go with dinner. She followed the recipe except went slightly heavy on the mint extract.

They weirdly puffed and then collapsed in the middle as you can see in the picture, but they were still very good! Meredith said they probably won't go "in the rotation" but we still enjoyed them

Meredith made an Almond Cherry Smoothie from Ambitious Kitchen (LOCAL)

I just use this for the ingredient combo. The proportions are nuts.

BBQ Tempeh Nachos

Sunday, February 07, 2021, 09:02 PM

Meredith made tempeh BBQ nachos. We were originally going to make tempeh taco nachos but I suggested we do a tempeh version of BBQ Pork Nachos

They were pretty good. Not as good as real pork but I think I liked it more than the tacos we did last time. And it was nice to do it with a different meat than the pork.

Croque Monsieur & Rustic Loaf Bread

Friday, February 05, 2021, 09:06 PM

I made a rustic loaf bread like last time using a combination of no-knead bread and hearth bread. I tried to do it with bread flour but I don't think it made much difference.

I did accidentally forgot that I was warming the oven and letting the bread rise in the pan. So it may have risen a bit more than I would have liked before going into the oven but I think it worked out fine. I had to use a fan to cool it faster for dinner.

The Croque Monsieur was the regular recipe with leftover béchamel from last time

Brew Day

Meredith is making kombucha based on Shutterbean (LOCAL, including PDF of page). She used scoby from our friends, including a bit of liquid starter. In addition to their liquid starter, Meredith used a bottle of raw kombucha (GTs Raw Kombucha Synergy).

We will update this post as it ferments
