I’m taking a walk on the wild side today by changing up one of my favorite meals of all time: the blackened steak salad. Of course I love Sendik’s more’n my luggage, but I just could not stomach $17.99 per pound for fillet today. I know it’s knock-your-flip-flops-off fantastic, but I’m in the process of signing the punks up for every summer activity under the sun this week (read: writing checks left and right), and the funds are not allowing for fillet.
I was at school last Wednesday morning and ran into Patrick and Lisa Balistreri. We got to talking about all things groceries, and they were both raving about the Jazz apples that are on sale this week. “Blog about apples,” he said. “We’ve got TONS of Jazz apples this week, and they’re really good!”
I’m an absolute fool for a good Cobb Salad, which is what I decided to make tonight. Light and fresh, they’re the perfect warm weather dinner. I adore them so much in fact, that I ate a Cobb Salad from the North Shore Bistro every single week for the full nine months that I was pregnant with my third kiddo.
I want to tell you about this ‘chipper chocken’ recipe that I made tonight. It’s my favorite dish to make out of plain old, boring ‘chocken’ breasts. The refreshing Greek flavors of oregano and fresh mint really liven up these pretty skewers.
I just love our Sendik’s customers. They are such a source of inspiration for demo’s and recipes. Crisse Merkel of Germantown passed along these recipes. I’ve made all three and they are great! Perfect for summer grilling and entertaining. Thanks Crisse!
I always seem to be at a loss for good vegetable sides dishes. Does this ever happen to you? Not quite sure why I’m uninspired – it’s not like I dislike vegetables or anything, I just get in a rut and end up serving the same dishes time after time – you know, the usual suspects: sautéed green beans, roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, etcetera…. (big yawn) Happily, the great deals on produce this week inspired me right out of my rut, and I’m excited to share two very (non-boring) veggie recipes with you today!
