    eG Cook-Off #84: Ginger

    mmm, gingerbread. Around Christmas time Whole Foods was selling squares (individually wrapped) and I enjoyed it plain for mid-morning snack with tea. I have several varieties of herbal tea in my pantry which contain ginger (mango/ginger, lemon/ginger, ginger/maple...you get the idea). Carrot ginger soup is also a favorite of mine.

    Valentine's Day Dinner

    Pizza. NJ, particularly where I live, is also replete with excellent pizza. That was what DH wanted. Nice restaurant on Saturday.
  3. Nuts.com has free shipping with $29+ purchase, today only.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Trying to be better about not letting things languish in the freezer...breakfast was "planned-over" roasted garnet sweet potato reheated in office micro. This is becoming a favorite for these cold rainy days.
  5. I drink herbal tea all day at work, so for convenience I am using prepackaged bags from Celestial Seasonings, Yogi, etc. I will brew ginger tea as posted above when I am home with a cold. My current rotation from Celestial is Vanilla Spice and Apple Cinnamon (everyone near my office comments how they crave apple pie when I have this). From Yogi tea I am enjoying ginger mango. In the summer I will be more likely to lean towards less cinnamon...ginger/lemon, peach, etc.

    Dinner 2020

    Baked eggplant and chicken parm casserole. Bought pre-made eggplant planks (made locally, very good, panko crumbs), cooked a few chicken tenderloins simply with s+p and sliced garlic, cut in to pieces. Layered in a dish with sliced canned artichokes, simple tomato/basil sauce, parm, topped with plenty of mozzarella. Served with some tagliatelle, also locally made/fresh.
  7. I have had the Cannoli flavor during its first go-around, I remember liking it, will look for it...

    Breakfast 2020!

    I say yay to the perfectly toasted English Muffin, that's exactly how I like them. Averting my eyes from the eggs...

    Dinner 2020

    Roasted salmon fillet after dusting with 5 spice and a brush of hoisin, sugar snap peas, packaged lemon pepper flavored “rice” made from veg (chickpea and lentil flour mostly). 13 more hours until my physical and then I am home free. Not that I am counting or anything....😉

    Chick-Fil-A 2011

    Chick Fil A "catering" for the office...since everyone will eat it. Cold grilled chicken wraps, couple of salads w/grilled chicken, and platter of warm grilled chicken and fixin's (including bacon strips) for make your own sandwich. Supplemented with snack size chips and M&M cookies from the supermarket.

    Superbowl food 2020

    Put them in the fridge when they hit perfect ripeness, they will hold for several days, I have kept them a week that way. I am torn, we usually make a big sheet pan of nachos and have ice cream, but I have blood being drawn Monday so I have to keep it healthy...maybe some guac with rice cakes😂

    Lunch 2020

    Leftover pan seared tuna (cold), salad of marinated carrots with diced fresh pineapple, little minced celery and scallion with vinaigrette.
  13. OK, found the raspberry KitKats at ShopRite near my office. Will be easy to resist this one, the taste is very thin, almost "watery". There is very little raspberry flavor. Small sticks, around 2".

    Dinner 2020

    Crabcakes for dinner, with a side of crabcakes. And salad. Baked them on nonstick alum foil, oiled a little to ensure browning.
  15. I had Pocket Caffe several years ago, my sister’s Sicilian MIL brought some as a gift...mmm

    Dinner 2020

    No photos, dinner at home last night also. Pan seared tuna that I had briefly marinated in soy/lime/ginger, oven roasted broccoli and garnet sweet potato (microwaved sweet potatoes until softened a bit, cut in to 1/2" thick circles, sprinkle of ancho chili, salt, and one drop of honey on top of each before roasting).

    Dinner 2020

    Wow, props to you @Shelby, if I had the flu I'd basically be telling my husband to open a can of soup!
  20. I would think mole nachos would be delicious. Drizzle some crema, queso fresco on top...mmm
  21. Dammit, I can’t resist anything raspberry, and I love the idea of lemon. I will look for these at Target...

    Dinner 2020

    Watched the Food Network while at the gym today and decided to make a simple recipe that Michael Symon demonstrated. Baked cod shakshuka style. I made it with scrod, doubled the red bell pepper, and tweaked the spices a little. It was very easy and tasty, served with riced cauliflower since I am trying to reduce carbs this month. I would make it again.
  23. I have eaten that cake, coworker has brought it in a couple of times, it is amazing.

    Lunch 2020

    Bizarre combo, but it does taste good because of the sweet/salty thing...baked tofu with very thinly sliced celery, grape tomatoes, roasted pepper, cantaloupe...with some of the leftover lime/fish sauce dressing from last night's dinner. Trying to make use of odds and ends.

    Dinner 2020

    A refreshing dinner after all of that seafood (and bread) last night...rice noodles (vermicelli) with a dressing of fresh lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar, oil, little coconut milk, a little bit of grated onion and garlic. Mixed with matchstick cut english cuke, orange bell, carrot, fresh basil (didn’t have cilantro), chopped peanuts. Sauteed some cubed chicken breast and mixed in. Very tasty, and have some leftover dressing for tomorrow’s lunch.
