I bought 4 1 1/4 lbs. strip steaks from Costco. I marinated them in TJ’s Souvlaki sauce for 1 1/2days. Then I grilled them over high heat for about 14 minutes, turning once. This is where the Thermapen comes in handy. At 145* they were perfectly medium rare.3+May 7, 2018 at 11:00 am #12314

I made stuffed peppers today, with these HUGE red bell peppers that I got at the store over the weekend. The two of us didn’t finish even one of them, but they should make great leftovers.3+May 8, 2018 at 9:31 pm #12323
Red bell peppers are my choice of peppers to stuff!
Tonight I cut up leftover pork from what my husband cooked last night. I then sautéed chopped red bell pepper and sliced mushrooms in the drippings from last night’s pork and some I had in the freezer. I added the meat and the broccoli florets. In the meantime, I cooked half a package of soba noodles (these are partly whole wheat). I mixed the drained noodles and a bit of the cooking water into the vegetables, then added sliced green onion. We have enough for dinner tomorrow as well.2+May 9, 2018 at 11:13 am #12331
It looks like a windy, rainy day, so I’m making soup, using some of the broth I recently made. I’m using a mix of lentils and some hull-less barley from Bob’s Red Mill. I had a bit of leftover, cooked ground turkey in the freezer, so that went into the pot. Before I started, I sautéed some chopped onion, celery, and a large yellow bell pepper, with a bit of garlic. I’ll let it simmer for 90 minutes, as the hull-less barley needs a longer cooking time.2+May 9, 2018 at 4:48 pm #12335

Pancakes for supper here tonight.2+May 12, 2018 at 8:18 am #12360
My favorite use of corned beef hash–when I can find the reduced fat, less salt can–is to saute onion to add to it, then add ketchup. I stuff it into a red bell pepper (used to use green ones). I set it upright in a microwaveable dish, then microwave on high for a few minutes. It is not a dinner that I can feed to my husband, so I have not made it for a long time.1+May 12, 2018 at 11:53 am #12361
I made “the thigh who loved me” recipe. It called for boneless skinless chicken thighs, ketchup, salsa ,honey…… Thighs are never dry like chicken breasts. My husband said it was a winner but that I would probably not make it again because I never make the same thing twice. (an exaggeration). I like recipes that you can cook in the oven. They are less messy, allow you to prep ahead (usually) and they give you a chance to sit down.2+May 12, 2018 at 6:12 pm #12366
Tonight is baked skinned bone-in chicken breasts on a bed of mirepoix and red pepper, with some white wine, a little parsley and fresh thyme.3+May 12, 2018 at 6:22 pm #12367
I roasted boneless chicken breasts that were smeared with mayonnaise and coated with panko, garlic powder, onion powder, freshly ground black pepper, and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
I wanted potatoes with it, so I first cut up four medium-sized yellow potatoes, rubbed the pieces with olive oil, put them on a parchment-covered rimmed baking sheet, sprinkled with a bit of salt, and baked for 30 minutes at 400F. I then pushed the potatoes to each side of the pan, and put the two coated chicken breast halves in the center. I sprinkled any left over coating over the potatoes. I reduced the temperature to 375F and roasted for 30 minutes. It came out very well, and I will make it this way again.3+
