Camping Polenta

May 26, 2009

We boiled polenta and added olive oil in lieu of butter.  We made our Moroccan tomato sauce to pour over the cooked polenta.  We then added sautéed chicken sausage to it.

Deviled Eggs

May 3, 2009

I’ve never made Deviled Eggs, until now.  The Joy of Cooking recipe is really simple and turned out great.  I omitted the shallots and tabasco sauce, and used dried dill instead of the fresh herbs.  Mateus really liked them, too.  It’s one way to get him to eat the yolks…

Cauliflower Lentil Rice Bake

May 2, 2009

This was so tasty, and so easy to make.  I added ground beef (3/4 lb.) with the garlic, green onions, and spice mixture and browned the meat over medium-high heat for a few minutes.  I didn’t have mushrooms, so I thinly sliced zucchini and used that instead.  I also used a mixture of parmesan and mozzarella solely because I didn’t have cheddar.

Recipe available here (or below).

*Note that “Ontario onions” are actually green onions, and Ontario garlic is, well, garlic.

*This recipe for Indian Ground Beef With Cauliflower, Potatoes, and Curry Spices also sounds really good, but I haven’t made it yet.
