Glazed Salmon with Chimichurri

Moist salmon with a sticky savory glaze, topped with a lively and bright chimichurri.

 

We don’t eat as much fish as I’d like. Michael is slowly warming up to the idea of fish, although he eats sushi which is a jump. Apparently raw fish is better than cooked! 😛

 

But since my parents always give me fish, it was time to make some. I’ve never made my own chimichurri before so I grabbed a recipe from epicurious.

Pulled Beef BBQ Pizza

Michael ate more than half. Seriously.

We love pizza, and I love making pizza. I can use whatever I have or plan to make certain types. This was a combo of both. I had some stew beef I wanted to use, but I didn’t want stew.

I also don’t understand people who say they don’t make pizza dough because it takes too much time? I can make a basic pizza dough in 20 minutes, less even.

Caamaan people!

Killer Cheese Sauce

 

Put this on macaroni, cauliflower, fries, dip things into it. Dear god.

Killer as in awesome, not deadly. That wouldn’t be good.

 

This recipe is for a creamy cheese sauce, with a blend of sharp white cheddar and regular cheddar, cracked black pepper and cayenne pepper. You get the sharpness of the cheese cutting through the richness of the cream, and a little pop of heat from the peppers. Amazing.

Pork Meatballs (also featuring tomato sauce and pasta!)

 

It's nota spicya meatball!

 

This is another one of those last-minute-unplanned-incredibly-successful dinners. I had some defrosted pork in the fridge, some leftover sauce, and tons of pasta in the cupboard.

For meatballs and hamburgers/meatloaf I generally follow one recipe.

I am a Champion of Improvisation – Pork Sausage and Tomato Alfredo Linguinie

You may not be aware but Michael and I are in the middle of moving. Or in the middle of about to be moved?

Regardless, we’re packed, waiting to leave and are quite lacking in the ingredients for dinner area.

So tonight I had a look in the pantry/fridge and came up with a Pork Sausage and Fresh Tomato Alfredo Linguine. I also made some garlic bread out of some 3 day old french bread.

You can't believe how happy my belly was.

…the rest is this way!


Macaroni and Blasphemeese!

Now I feel pretty awful about admitting this, but its something I wanted to try, and you can’t knock something until you try it.

…Right?

Tonight I made macaroni, with Velveeta sauce. Now I’m the type of girl who likes to make my own cheese sauce, but as of late I’ve been curdling mine (due to lazyness/distraction) and I wanted something quick and easy for dinner.

Vengeful Cheese God

…rubberneck like a car wreck!
