@Alexander B. - SC the salad contains
◾️3 cucumbers (seeded and mostly peeled). The English cucumbers weren't on sale, so I had to buy the hothouse cukes which require more prep to avoid them getting soggy in the salad.
◾️1 and a half yellow onions thinly sliced and rinsed in ice water.
◾️1lb of cherry tomatoes, halved.
◾️8oz of sour cream.
◾️the juice of one lemon + half the lemon zest.
◾️fresh dill, 1 minced garlic clove, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper to taste. Let sit in the fridge overnight!

My Polish grandma taught me the recipe and she learned it from her mom. Seriously my favorite salad. Extremely refreshing.

2017-07-29 12:57:14 UTC  

Damn, that sounds and looks delicious

2017-07-29 12:57:42 UTC  

Definitely going to give it a try

2017-07-29 14:49:17 UTC  

Just started my Bavarian beer and sauerkraut roast.

Strategically placed basil.
Looks dank.

2017-07-29 15:14:48 UTC  

Would devour

2017-07-29 15:15:07 UTC  

That thing on top is actually a Bay Leaf

2017-07-29 15:19:50 UTC  

There's also a layer of Pearl Onions under all the kraut. I wonder if I should have mixed them, but I don't think it will make any difference.

2017-07-29 15:20:47 UTC  

It's in a crock pot I'm sure the flavors will intermingle by themselves.

2017-07-29 15:20:54 UTC  

Exactly

2017-07-30 01:09:55 UTC  

I actually did a mess load of meal prep last night with haul from the farmers market if anyone wants a quick run down

2017-07-30 01:10:53 UTC  

Can you give me a quick rundown

2017-07-30 01:23:07 UTC

2017-07-30 01:23:32 UTC  

Hit up the farmers market first off

2017-07-30 01:25:21 UTC  

Half the tomatos, corn, and green beans were already gone when I took that photo

2017-07-30 01:25:47 UTC  

Total cost for the produce was like $35

2017-07-30 01:28:20 UTC  

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL

2017-07-30 01:38:42 UTC  

Jersey Fresh fam

2017-07-30 01:39:27 UTC  

The peaches are amazing right now, juicier than the tomatos even

2017-07-30 01:47:07 UTC  

I basically cut up everything but the corn, tomatos, peaches and baked them in the oven. Also put together four pounds of lean ground turkey with eggwhites and jalapeños, spread it onto a baking sheet and cut it into strips so I could add it to the meals

2017-07-30 01:48:16 UTC  

Important to heavily salt your eggplant and let it sit before cooking it. I drained about a cup of water out of two eggplants that way. Really cuts down on oven time

Dinnertime! #goodcooking #yum #healthyboy

Jk doing my weekly meal prep now. I lean towards fairly simple fare but i usually season it well

Nice that looks incredible

As a single lad, (for now) meal prep saves me alot of time and aids me in guiding a healthy diet

2017-07-30 02:23:49 UTC  

Just might land you a fine lass for all that

2017-07-30 02:28:08 UTC  

As weird as it sounds, meal preparation actually soothes my autism

I make my chicken in a way that keeps it incredibly moist

2017-07-30 02:29:51 UTC  

Medium rare chicken

2017-07-30 02:29:52 UTC  

Extra fat and oils from 🐓 get cooked down and smothered on top before portioning

2017-07-30 02:30:13 UTC  

Noice

2017-07-30 02:31:59 UTC  

It's fully cooked. I cook both sides on medium-high for ~ 3 minutes and then lower heat and put a lid over the skillet

2017-07-30 02:32:33 UTC  

For another mmm 10, 15?

2017-07-30 02:33:29 UTC  

Covering the 🐓 is what makes it moist
