Tomato pie…

I had planned a tomato tart but somehow i googled tomato pie and got buried with recipes. This one is a hybrid of all those i saw.

Im also working in more omega threes so you will see a cucumber dill salad with some anchovy filets….

The pie absolutely used a frozen gluten free crust…i hate making gf pie or pizza dough.

Day 98 goes a little south with fried okra and white bbq…and

This was another idea that developed based off my need to use up the cucumbers i have on hand, however, no cucumbers are anywhere on the menu….

I started with the white bbq sauce straight outta southern living magazine

Mayo, vinegar and spices
Mix it up and its white bbq sauce

Next came the greens slow cooking for hours

Followed by a baked mac and cheese ready for the oven.

And corn!

And okra

It all came together:-) with a grapefruit cocktail (from my grapefruit) mixed with my homemade grapefruitcello?

And the whole things came together

And day 97, t-3 to 100, is our usual margarita friday.

I defrosted some tilapia loin yesterday on accident so its getting used today. What to make, what to make…

First inspiration was refried black beans—i was home today so that was perfect. Alas, i have none, but i have a bounty of lentils. True to form those google searched resulted in a mexican inspired lentil salad.

Lentil salad with a red jalapeño hiding out in there for bite

We had mexican corn and zucchini

And a spice rubbed tilapia loin

And of course…margarita—-with our home grown grapefuit juice

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.
