Loves of late – “Making It” (again), I am sad this season is almost over. Also “Stan Against Evil;” I just learned that the 3rd season premiers on Halloween and I could not be more excited.
Flavor themes this week – cream cheese, salmon, bacon, cabbage, coffee (always)
Here were the highlights…
Coffee = cold pressed Brooklyn Roasting Company.
On the snack front, the hospital cafeteria stocks a big variety of yummy trail mixes and I am obsessed with them.
And this month’s Snack Crate was from Japan and it was super exciting.
Jalopeno popper chicken. Chicken baked with a topping of cream cheese, jalopeno, cheddar, and turkey bacon. Plus roasted green beans.
Salmon strata. This recipe, but I subbed in cream cheese for cheddar and added dill. Also I added an extra egg and used fat-free half and half in place of a 1/2 cup of milk which made the custard extra creamy. Pro tip – we used Trader Joe’s white whole wheat and it was perfect. Plus cherry tomatoes and roasted zucchini.
Frozen salmon burgers (which frankly weren’t that good) on a delicious slaw. I made green papaya salad but with cabbage.
Americanized okonomiyaki, I used russet potato with turkey bacon and sharp cheddar.
