Ode to Salads

It’s Springtime, soon to be Summertime! So everyone is trying to eat better and lighter! So I thought I would do a post Ode to the Salad! So here you go some salad ideas for you! I am dedicating this post to my co-worker Melissa aka Dummy aka Melby (I have many nicknames for her). She is the salad QUEEN! I ask Melissa every day what she is eating for lunch or what she is having for dinner and the response lately has been the same: “Salad” so this post is for you Dummy!

This is my MOST favorite dressing right now! It’s SOOO good! It tastes like a Honey Mustard dressing but without the may-o! I made this salad for my cousin Jenn when she was staying with us and it was her favorite dressing as well! I actually made this dressing and I originally didn’t like the flavor so I added honey and made it my own and that is what made it taste SO good!

You don’t need a party to get down on some guacamole. Put it on a salad, taco, tostada, sandwich, whatever you want. Eat it with your hands. I don’t give a flying fuck. SNACK LIFE.</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>GRAPEFRUIT GUACAMOLE</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>5 ripe avocados</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>2 medium grapefruits or 1 big son of a bitch</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>¼ cup chopped cilantro</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>¼ cup chopped red onion</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>¼ teaspoon salt</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Take the pit out of the avocados and scoop out all the green flesh into a large bowl. Mash it up with fork. I like my guacamole chunky but do what you gotta do. Cut the grapefruit up into segments like you would cut an orange. Remove the peel and cut the segments into pieces about the size of a nickel. Put all the grapefruit into the bowl with the avocado. Add the cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and salt and mix it all up. Taste it and add more shit until you like it. Serve immediately or chill it for a bit. I’m not gonna tell you how to eat guacamole, just follow your fucking heart.

I used two recipes that I have made before to make this one recipe

for the Orzo with basil
Here is what you need,

3 tbsp. butter
1 ½ cups Orzo
3 cups chicken (I used water and then added better than bouillon chicken flavor)
1 tbsp dried basil
Salt, to tatse
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat.

DSC_0124-1

and sauté

DSC_0126-1

DSC_0130-1

until golden brown. Takes a few minutes

Add the broth and cover. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the water is all absorbed into the orzo

Remove from the heat, stir in the basil and salt & pepper to taste.
DSC_0144-1

and for Baked Shrimp in Tomato Feta Sauce

olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 14.5-ounce cans of fire roasted tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
1 Tbsp minced fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
1 to 1 1/4 pounds medium sized shrimp, peeled and deveined I left the tails on mine (I used precooked shrimp for my recipe because they were out of raw)
salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 ounces feta cheese
DSC_0119-1

heat your oven to 425°F. Heat oil in a large, oven-proof pan or dutch oven to medium high heat. Add the onions

and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the tomatoes

I recommend getting shrimps with the tails off because when you eat this dish it was a little bit of pain to have to pull the tail off while eating this. Would have been more enjoyable to just eat the shrimps with no mess

Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”

Ever had cauliflower potatoes? Not potatoes….But instead of using potatoes you use cauliflower and it tastes like mashed potatoes, only better for you! Well if you haven’t, you should try it! So here we go, How I made cauliflower wanna be mashed potatoes.

side note – cauliflower is stinky!

So take one head of cauliflower
DSC_0052-1

and wash it and take the leaves and bottom stem part off and cut it up and add to a pot of water, enough for the cauliflower to swim around in and get soft
DSC_0054-1

DSC_0056-1

then place the pot of water on a burner and turn the burner to high heat and boil the cauliflower

I boiled mine for about 15-20 minutes. I just kept poking the bigger pieces with a fork until they were nice and tender
DSC_0068-1

Then drain the cauliflower in a strainer
DSC_0083-1

then place the cauliflower in a food processor, I did this in two batches
DSC_0084-1

I added a little butter
DSC_0085-1

and I added in a little Cajun seasoning (of course) to taste
DSC_0087-1

and then I purred the cauliflower, I also added a little milk too so that it helped to break up the bigger chucks of cauliflower and loosen everything up.
DSC_0093-1

then purred it again
until it was nice and smooth
You may need to add more milk, but just keep purring it till its nice and smooth
DSC_0094-1

I placed both batches in a medium saucepan and added a little bit more butter and turned burner to medium low heat
DSC_0096-1

Then I added in a little greek yogurt and better than bullion (chicken flavor) for a little more flavoring and saltines
DSC_0097-1

Then I added in salt and pepper and chives, to taste
DSC_0098-1

stir all that together and let it warm up and taste it for seasoning and adjust if needed
DSC_0107-1

Then serve the cauliflower “potatoes” up nice and hot
DSC_0116-1

I sprinkled a little more chives over my cauliflower

They look just like mashed potatoes don’t they!? I think they taste like them too!

Here is that recipe again for you…

So take one cauliflower head

And wash it and take the leaves and bottom stem part off and cut it up and add to a pot of with water, enough for the cauliflower to swim around in and get soft
