Smoked Salmon Sandwiches

Ridiculously quick and easy to make.

This is how:

1. Toasted bread (I had Jewish Rye)

2. A dab of mayo

3. Some lettuce leaves (Red Fire Farm)

4. Tomato slice (Red Fire Farm – we got FOUR POUNDS on Friday!)

5. Pile on the salmon

6. Squeeze some lemon juice

7. Sprinkle on the capers

ENJOY!

Adding a glass of OJ and a book made it only better:

Delish dinner to top off a crazy night of paper-writing

Well, grilled chicken, really.
I marinate the chicken breasts in my awesome cilantro sauce (cilantro+garlic+ EVoo into the blender), then pound them thin and grill them on high.
French fries tonight are Red Fire Farm potatoes, skin and all, sliced into 1/4″ little logs and fried in canola oil until golden. The secret to crispy fries to drying them off both before AND after frying and never, ever, ever salting them before you cook and dry them.
In other news, a week from today I’ll have my MBA.

Sorry about the crap phone picture!

Be jealous, be very jealous

If you love seafood as much as I love seafood, that is.

Scallops and Freshwater Shrimp with Salad

Super-quick (and not expensive!) dinner. Freshwater shrimp ran me just under $5, and the scallops were about $5 as well. The veggies are from the Red Fire Farm CSA!

Freshwater shrimp has a more delicate taste than regular shrimp, so you have to be careful not to overcook it. I steamed mine for 45 seconds, then turned it over for another 45 seconds. Then I put it in the warm sauce, so it cooked for another maybe 10-15 seconds, then I chilled it with ice.

For the sauce:

Olive Oil + hot pepper + garlic + my cilantro-garlic sauce –>  Warm it all up and let sit while the shrimp cooks.

To cook scallops:

Dry them very well and sear quickly on each side. When the scallops are no longer glossy, they’re ready to go.

My salad was simple leaves of Romaine tossed with baby zucchini slices and an olive oil and lemon dressing.

The whole thing took me longer to eat than it took me to cook.  Just sayin’.

Greek Yogurt Variations

While we’re on this healthy-eating train, here are two of my favorite snacks/ small lunches to bring to school:

Base is always Fage Greek Yogurt, 0% fat or 2%:

Then option one is get to school and use of the cafe’s honey bears for some honey (free hehe), and option two is grab some sliced cucumbers and carrots from the salad bar (less than $2), salt and pepper the yo and enjoy!
