Southwestern Eggroll Quesadillas

Wednesday, January 11, 2023, 06:51 PM


Southwestern Egg Rolls [Liz Moody]

We liked them a lot. The extra filling was a nice and easy leftover too!

Meredith's Notes: Added eggs and did quesadilla-style since we only have street taco tortillas. Went heavy on the spinach.

Soy Chorizo Spaghetti Squash

Tuesday, January 10, 2023, 07:03 PM

This was Spaghetti Squash Taco Bake [Eating Bird Food] but with soy chorizo instead of meat. Meredith used about half of the taco seasoning because the chorizo is so flavored.

Emily cooked the squash while she was here. We don't know if the squash was a tad too cooked or it really didn't work with chorizo but it, overall, was not as good as usual.

Forgot recipe source

Too much brine. Use half next time

Chex Mix

Chex Mix [A Beautiful Mess] again but with (lots of) pecans. The pecans are the best part! Adding them was a great idea

Air-Fried Chips

Thursday, January 05, 2023, 08:20 PM

I made air-fried potato chips with the recipe from Taste of Home. I did follow the recipe including soaking the potatoes, though I think I cooked them longer and a tad hotter.

I was initially really disappointed since I used the food processor to slice and they were really thick for chips. However, I am actually pretty happy with how they came out! I think if they were too much thinner, they may have burned more easily and/or just not been as good. If I had control, they would be a tad thinner.

This makes me want to make ribbon chips...

Baked Latkes (including Samosa Latkes)

Thursday, January 05, 2023, 07:21 PM

Including Isaac reaching for my plate

I (belatedly) made Baked Latkes. The recipe really doesn't help much with proportions and I wanted to 1.5x it. So I wrote down what I did. I wouldn't say "this is the right proportion" in the future since I just think you have to play around and it's not super sensitive.

For the samosa ones, we eyeballed a lot of curry powder and added peas. We did it by eye so I couldn't tell you exactly how much or how much we set aside for it. Oh well.

Emily and Meredith liked them a lot. I thought they were good but I preferred the regular.

We also had fried eggs.

Croque Monsieur and Pesto Brussel Sprouts

Tuesday, January 03, 2023, 07:40 PM

Croque Monsieur [Bon Appétit]

On two different breads: Garlic and Multi-Grain. Emily's was with tofurky "ham"

I am not sure if we've written about it yet but Meredith made her new signature brussel sprouts. We use shredded brussel sprouts and as they are nearly done cooking, she adds pesto sauce. Super easy and very tastuy!

We made Fondue for New Years with Emily. We followed what is quickly becoming our standard dippers (see 2021-12-04 and 2021-12-26) but air-fried them with our new fryer. I did it all at 450°F with about 17 min for the brussel sprouts, ~20 for the potatoes, and the others I just did by eye (I didn't write it down I guess).

We also had a chocolate mousse cake from Costco. It was for Emily’s birthday but all they had was for New Years. So we did some modifications for Emily’s 28th birthday. And we had Octonaut toppers we never used for Caroline so we used them too. As you can imagine, they were a hit.
