    Lunch 2019

    working at home...had leftover grilled salmon portion over lettuce from co-worker's garden and some sliced white grapes in the salad. They were pretty sour, so I thought they would be better in the salad, which they were. TJ's champagne vinaigrette dressing. No photo as I had to guard it from a highly interested cat.

    Well, if that sandwich were made with Corned Beef (common deli sandwich in this area), they would call it a Corned Beef Special (Turkey Special exists also, one of my fav's). So it was likely your family adapting the NY area deli concept to their preferred/available deli meat.

    Lunch 2019

    Toastie...gigantic slice of rye bread (freezer to micro, then toaster oven) with Jarlsberg cheese on top. Couple of grape tomatoes on the side. Black coffee. Working from home with a dastardly summer cold and my sense of taste is dulled, but I appreciated the texture of the crispy bread crust.

    Dinner 2019

    Pan seared dry sea scallops, salad of yellow tomato and cuke, packaged green curry rice. Boy, there is nothing tastier than the fond from scallops seared in butter. Shellfish caramel.
  5. NJ example...I put a package of raw chicken into a single use plastic bag because I didn't trust it not to leak. When I got to checkout, the cashier was frustrated with getting the bar code to scan so she just tore a hole in the outer plastic bag.

    eG Cook-Off #82: Salmon

    My husband is the Griller in Chief, but he's not patient or particularly skilled. So I put the seasoned salmon on a piece of foil (skin down) just as a barrier between fish and grate. Makes it easy to remove the skin, since it will want to stick to the foil after cooking.

    desk breakfast...cottage cheese, peach, grape nuts, sliced toasted almonds, dash of cinnamon.

    Lunch 2019

    @Kim Shook, I am inspired by your 'tater and have resolved to make extra baked potatoes and yams next time I am cooking them. I think some topped potatoes will be in future lunch plans.

    Kid food

    I loved vegetables as a kid and still do. My sister wasn't so much of a fan as a kid then was a vegetarian for a while as an adult. No predicting. Finding some kind of sauce or topping that they like for the veggies will persuade most kids to eat some of them more willingly.

    Dinner 2019

    Lit the grill for the first time this year. Grilled boneless chicken breasts, yams (par cooked halfway in micro), zucchini. Also did a batch of extra firm tofu that I coated with a dijon based marinade, put the slices on oiled foil so the bottom would brown...future lunches.

    Adorable Gummies

    not so dissimilar from the problem with kids eating detergent pods, they look too much like a candy product.
  12. @Darienne, I’m sure you could tear up some of those slices and stack up the bits to make a larger mass to stuff the rice balls. Even if not perfect, they are tasty. A recipe born from using up leftovers.
  13. If it is the firm block type mozz (ie, not the ball in brine) you can cut cubes and make mozz stuffed meatballs, or arancini. Neither uses a tremendous amount of cheese, but mozz (if in a sealed pack, I'm thinking of the stuff like Polly-O in the US) will keep for a while in the fridge if unopened.

    Breakfast 2019

    Cottage cheese with first peach of the season (surprisingly good) and a few chopped nuts.
  15. Made banana muffins (with carob chips) today, the recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups flour, I used 1/4c almond flour and the remainder whole wheat. Not sure that it made a huge difference, but they are pretty moist. I will have to try it with the vegan recipe I have also made, it would likely be more noticeable. May bump it up to 3/8 cup almond flour.
