On to day 83

We have cooked at home for 83 days straight since Los Angeles started the safer at home order and cancelled my birthday plans thanks to Covid 19. We have had a lot of lunch time delivery at work, but dinner has been all me–we have nowhere else to go!

Fridays are supposed to be margarita night and in a pre covid world it was always mexican and ive tried to somewhat maintain that at home. This week i had a cauliflower sitting here so I rubbed it with cumin, chili powder, and olive oil and served it with a home made crema.

I had half a cabbage that needed used so we have a slaw with salsa, cumin, vinegar and oil.

And i needed one more thing so i have a corn and chipotle salad

Topped off with a margarita!

And that was day 83.

And on day 81 it’s a lighter fare—was going to be salad night;-)

So this is the most en place my mise has ever been

Making some tofu/garbanzo lettuce wraps/tacos and a Mediterranean themed salad.

You will see that i am using premarinated moroccan seasoned tofu–the flavor is gentle and mixes well with the penzeys turkish seasoning….trust me, the result tasted mediterranean even if the labels dont fit;-).

The salad is lemon juice and olive oil mixed with tomato, artichoke hearts, cucumber, young bell pepper, red onion with the penzeys air dried shallots , lemon pepper, garlic and some paprika.
