After a day of working and errands, I wanted a healthy dinner, so I slathered pesto on top of a nice piece of salmon and cooked it stovetop, and used leftovers to create a quinoa cole slaw with cherry tomatoes, with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice and just a light teaspoon of Italian dressing and voila! A delicious and fulfilling meal….and super fast too! Came together in about 20 minutes, max! These are the kinds of meals I love to make…..
I love making my own biscuits and this past weekend, I wanted a homemade brunch. Finding out that now I have become lactose intolerant, I now have to figure out ways to replace milk with other products…..and the first one that I am trying out is almond milk. I am glad to say that so far, so good! I have not had any negative reactions. Had a cup of Nespresso coffee with the almond milk and it Worked!! Hallelujah! Happy Camper on that note!
I have an upcoming dinner that I am creating for a friend that requested “everything bacon!” So I decided to try out different things, beginning with biscuits. Looked in the fridge and put everything and then some in these lovelies.
Not only did I use parmesan cheese but I also shredded about half a cup of sharp cheddar. Also sea salt and pepper went into the flour mixture, along with finely chopped bacon and ham, of course!! Talk about savory, savory deliciousness…and yes, I did use some of the almond milk in the biscuits. I took some to a couple of people for them to try out and they all said the same thing…..”Delicious!”
So since I am in the midst of creating the menu for this upcoming “bacony-goodness” birthday dinner, I am open for suggestions for the appetizers. I was all excited about bacon wrapped figs or dates, but I was told no way by the birthday boy……so now I am seeking suggestions…..and will continue to surf to find some yummy bacon goodness for savory appetizers.
