On day 99 we had green beans and fried mac and cheese

Its time to have some cucs and i had no idea what to do with them plus an heirloom that was ready…so they got plated..a little salt on the cucs and a drizzly of sherry vinegar for the lot.

And an excellent go cheese we have missed for months from a local farm. Goat cheese idyllwild from Drakes Family Farm. This cheese is an old world Portuguese recipe.

I, again, made a grapefruit juice/grapefruitcello/grapefruit sparkling water cocktail in my Tom of Finland glasses

I made green beans to simmer several hours ago—-using my own blend low sodium chickenless chicken broth.

Fried up some leftover baled mac and cheese slices

And we had some new brand of gluten free dinner rolls that were absolutely perfect

Day 99 worked out well

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

Day 96, zucchini/corn tacos and black eyed pea salad with hot sauce vinaigrette

The summer is for zucchini right? I had it in my head to try the black eyed peas with hot sauce vinaigrette….

But i didn’t know what to make with it. I was trying to think south but got stuck at the southwest and settled on zucchini/corn tacos since I have fresh corn on hand that needed used.

It all worked out nicely along with a marg to wash it down.

On the 87 day of safer at home dinners i planned…

…to make eggs. Then i said, breakfast for dinner. Then i said sauerkraut and eggs. I googled that and actually found recipes but it led me to kimchi and eggs…..which ended up as kimchi pancake. Am i the only one that falls down that recipe rabbit hole?

So we had kimchi pancake

It was my first try so by no means perfect but this tasted YUM!

I googled korean squash and found something resembling this

I wanted something fresh so i grabbed an heirloom tomato and made a quick dressing of lime ponzu and mayo…it worked

Day 86. Monday. Scallops, Poached.

I have never ever made poached scallops before. I never thought of it until yesterday when I said, what can I do with the scallops? So I googled poached scallops and discovered that I wasn’t as innovative as I presumed.

The scallops we poached in a chardonnay, butter, olive oil and water liquid for like 2 minute. Removed from heat for 10. Then scallops were removed and the liquid was reduced to make a sauce and thicken with a little gluten free baking mix.

I had some squash so I made my lifelong goto squash cooked in onions, tomato and italian seasoning.

And a little bit of store bought rice with veggies

It worked.
