Minted Melon Feta Salad+

Turns out, Gordon Ramsay’s minted melon feta salad works with tomatoes, too. I had some leftover tomatoes from tomato-basil-mozzarella kebabs and added those–plus some other leftovers I had on hand that I can’t recall–into the leftover salad, and it was good! And stretched out the salad a little, which was nice too.

P.S. Here you can see the shredded mint that’s in the dressing, which wasn’t shown in the original minted melon feta salad post.



Jalapeno + Goat Cheese Curd Eggs

When we accidentally bought 4 oz. of goat cheese curds instead of feta (for salad), we weren’t sure what to do with them. The BF dislikes goat cheese and while I like it just fine I didn’t have that much salad to use it on. Fortunately, the BF suggested that it might, because it was soft and crumbly like panela cheese and cotija, go as well as they do with jalapenos. That was a great idea, and for several breakfasts in a row I got to have these delicious scrambled eggs. Instructions are below! (more…)

Feta/Mozzarella Tomato Kebabs



The bacon + yellow bell pepper on toast meal was so tasty that I made it again the next day, that time accompanied by tomato-mozzarella kebabs. These are a simple yet fancy-feeling and very tasty appetizer, side dish, accompaniment to drinks, etc. You can also make them with feta (like Gordon Ramsay does in Fast Food; he also has the great idea of drizzling balsamic vinegar over them just before serving).

Bagel Sandwich #2

Today I have for you another bagel sandwich (see previous bagel sandwich post, from way back). This one has bacon, tomato, roasted yellow bell pepper, avocado, and of course cream cheese. It also has toothpicks holding it all together! (I cut it into halves, then remove the toothpicks as I eat. If you’re worried about eating a toothpick doing that, you should at least use them during the cutting, since it makes a huge difference.)
