Mesa steak, grilled corn, and a whole mess of kale

The steak was coated in my favorite spice rub, made to the MESA Grill recipe.  It's smoky and spicy and, we discovered, awesome on flank steak.  The corn was soaked for about an hour, then inner husks removed, wrapped in foil and grilled.  I had mine with lime juice and salt on it.  The kale was blanched then sauteed with garlic and a little drizzle of bacon fat.  And it's still steaming in that photo, which I love.

Another pizza

Green peppers and Canadian bacon.

BBQ Meatballs

I used the new recipe from Mom.  The jury's still out.

Pumpkin cranberry cake

It's unseasonable, I know, but we're moving soon and I'm trying to use things up.  This got rid of a can of pumpkin and put a dent in the last bag of frozen cranberries.

Curried Chicken Salad

Don't hate - it's delicious.

Soup and salad

Homemade chicken soup and a caesar salad.  The soup needed more seasoning.

Peach tart

Peach tart for Holly's housewarming party.  I'm told it was delicious - we left before dinner.


Kluski is really the name of the noodles, but that's what my mom called the dish so that's what I call it.  And, there aren't actually any kluski noodles here - they're very hard to find so I usually use regular egg noodles instead.  It's all a pack of lies.

Blueberry Pie

Tonight's dinner was entirely pre-fab, so to balance that out I made a pie.

New computer

We got a new computer and it's up and running.  So here are the dinners (and one dessert) you missed while I was gone:

Pictured: "leftover buffet", leftover stuffed shells with broccoli rabe, corn chowder with shrimp, black-and-white-and-red-and-blue cookies for a Memorial day bbq, grilled citrus steak with broccoli and rice, chicken nugget pizza, spicy chicken legs with frozen waffle fries and sauteed rainbow chard and onion.
