The food? Oh yes, the food. I ate ice cream and funnel cakes. I ate giant steaks and pork chops. I ate racks of ribs and pulled pork. I ate and ate and ate.
Of course I have now seen the photos and therefore how I looked in a swimsuit, so I need to tone it down a bit in the food department, wouldn't you say?
I cooked my first meal back home so simply that it almost doesn't deserve a post, but I thought I had a few tricks up my sleeve with the meal, so I decided to post about it anyway. These recipes were so easy, I don't really need to give you recipes.
Here is my First Meal Home.
This was a pound of ground turkey mixed with one package of thawed frozen chopped spinach, a half a grated onion, a few grates of parmesan, and a few grates of nutmeg. I sauteed some portobello mushoom strips and used them to make a pretty bed for the burgers.
If you make these, add more salt than I did. I thought they were a bit bland.
The Cole Slaw
This was the fun one. This was my new invention, Raspberry Lime Cole Slaw. I mixed a bag of cole slaw mix with 1/4 cup of olive oil, two tablespoons raspberry balsamic vinaigrette, the juice of one lime, a tablespoon of honey, and some salt and pepper. I tossed some whole rasperries in there along with some almonds. It wasn't hugely creative, but it was a little bit of a fun change from the norm.
I hope to have a Sweet Treat going this week. Yes, I'll try to do a chocolate one, but I have a new ingredient to work with this week as well. More on that to come.
