@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.
Damn, that sounds and looks delicious
Definitely going to give it a try
Just started my Bavarian beer and sauerkraut roast.
Strategically placed basil.
That thing on top is actually a Bay Leaf
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.
It's in a crock pot I'm sure the flavors will intermingle by themselves.
I actually did a mess load of meal prep last night with haul from the farmers market if anyone wants a quick run down
Can you give me a quick rundown
Hit up the farmers market first off
Half the tomatos, corn, and green beans were already gone when I took that photo
Total cost for the produce was like $35
Jersey Fresh fam
The peaches are amazing right now, juicier than the tomatos even
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
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
broccoli (Not pictured)
As a single lad, (for now) meal prep saves me alot of time and aids me in guiding a healthy diet
Just might land you a fine lass for all that
As weird as it sounds, meal preparation actually soothes my autism
I make my chicken in a way that keeps it incredibly moist
Medium rare chicken
Extra fat and oils from 🐓 get cooked down and smothered on top before portioning
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
For another mmm 10, 15?
Covering the 🐓 is what makes it moist
