Where to start?

So little time, I don't know how the fuck I'm going to get it all done...

My sickness had wained and I thought I was good to go, but it has come back very nicely and harshly over the last two days. I enjoyed the food while I could and dreaded the scale when I stood on it tonight, but alas, this whole thing is still going towards the good side at twice the rate I had been achieving. So, as of today I am a pound a a half below where I wanted to be at the end of December. *grin* Happiness. I think I'll stick this sickness out for as long as I can.

All gifts have officially been bought as of tonight. Woot! Cards are going out belated to the majority of my friends' religions. I apologize about that. I'm actually not even sure what I did with every body's address so feel free to leave it here and I will screen responses and send you a card.

I also need to update some more recipes.

So, it's been a while since I've updated these. No, there's no way I've hit nor gotten close to my 50 goal. I'm thinking that by the end of the year I may have tried 25 new recipes. So, goal revamped, cut tags have new recipes that I feel like updating today, and I am going to stick to a theme of sauces and marinades that I experimented with this year as I believe those should count...

So, if I did not make sense some where or you have questions, just let me know. Bon Apetit.

Chocolate Pecan Pie )

I made this for Beltane, so some of you had a chance to try this. The one I brought to Beltane was still warm. I must say, they are much better cooled, fyi.

Vegetable Fried Rice )

This recipe gets a B from me. Very good, but not so good that I had to resist eating the whole thing. Considering it was my first time using a recipe with tofu, I applaud myself for not fucking it up.

Watergate Salad

1 pkg (4 serving size) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 can (20oz) DOLE Crushed Pineapple, in juice, undrained
1 cup JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped Pecans
1-1/2 cups (1/2 of 8oz tub) thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Mix dry pudding mix, pineapple, marshmallows, and pecans in large bowl until well bleded.

Add whipped topping; stir gently until well blended. Cover.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.

So, a co-worker of mine made this for a potluck we had and I fell in love with it. After talking to people about it I found out that many had had this before. Regardless, I liked it so much I had to make it myself. Anywho, I made my first batch ever and took it to [ profile] sxypaganmom house and made a second batch for Gaia. I thought I was such a pro by the second batch I didn't look at the directions and alas it did turn out slightly different... I didn't mix everything before putting the cool whip in. I mixed it all at once. So, my only advice is to do it as the recipe instructs else it doesn't blend as well. For those who have never had it. Try it. It's nummy and gets an A from me!

So, I occasionally experiment with tuna. For example, red pepper and corn or apples or grapes thrown in for something extra (all wonderful additions by the way). Tonight I decided to try throwing in parsley... My first, blek, never again. If you're a parsley lover you may like this recipe. However, I don't like the taste of parsley to over take what I'm making. So, if you don't like parsley perhaps reducing the amount I put in would help... Not sure if I even care to experiment further with that. So, here is approximately what I mixed.

12oz canned chunk white tuna in water, drained
1/2 cup of celery, finely chopped
2tbs parsley, fresh, chopped
4tbs miracle whip (or whatever you have similar to this; reduce calorie mayo, mayo, etc.)
1tbs mustard (huge estimate) I added a bunch trying to kill the parsley taste (dijon mustard would probably also work)
1/2tsp salt (always optional, but I'm tracking my sodium and needed some extra)
1/2tsp pepper (estimate also as I added more of this to try and kill the parsley taste, if you want the parsley taste I imagine 1/4tsp or so will do)

Combine all ingredients. Makes about four servings. In my case two as it was dinner and lunch for tomorrow. So, basically what I am saying is divide as you wish. Heck you can even probably cut the recipe in half. When one works sixty hour weeks they tend to do all of their cooking in bulk so they can have left overs... At least I do.

So, for 50 new things to do this year I said 50 new recipies... Alas I have been lacking in this area. I have a whole two recipies to share with you. I hope and need to get on this more and hope to be able to feel you in with more recipies later...

Recipie #1: I shall call it Corney Turkey Pitas. It really came about from me trying to figure out what to have for dinner one night and combining foods that I had handy.

12oz ground turkey
1 can diced tomatoes (14 1/2oz)
1 can whole kernel corn, drained (15 1/4oz)
1 small cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup plain yogurt
6 pitas, cut in half of course

Coat skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Cook chicken in skillet over medium heat 'til brown. Stir in undrained tomatoes and pepper to taste.

Combine corn, cucumber and yogurt.

Spoon chicken stuff into pita and top with corn stuff.

This recipie gets a C in my book. I've created far better things in my life, but alas, it is food and was inventive on my part... Kinda. Inventive as in raiding the cabinets and fridge inventive. :-)

Recipie #2: Chicken with corn pineapple stuff

6 medium skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1 can whole kernel corn, drained (15 1/4oz)
1 can crushed pineapple in its own juice, drained (8oz)
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/4 cup cilantro
Lawrys Season Salt

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Season with season salt and pepper. Place chicken on unheated rack of broil pan and broil 4inches rom heat about 12-15 minutes. Basically 'til it's not pink based off of how your oven cooks. Also, don't foget to turn it once.

Combine corn, pineapple, red pepper, and cilantro in a bowl and serve it with the chicken.

I give this recipie an A and think it will make a lovely dish for relaxing on my patio with.

I appologize for not cutting this post, but lj has changed their format apparently and now I can't figure out how to do shit in it anymore....
