Today’s Menu: Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church and I went to the Cemetary to put flowers on Dad’s Grave for Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there! I decided to take a ride over to our old house in Ross, Ohio. When we left Ross back in the early 80’s it was just starting to grow. And now it’s still growing! A ton of changes compared to how it was back then. Still a beautiful small town though! Back home did a couple of loads of laundry and did a little cleaning outside. But it is hot and humid out. 99 degrees and a heat index well over 100 degrees today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

A section of the Jungle Jim’s Deli

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I came across on a WordPress Blog (The Cooking Diaries) and it sounded and looked delicious. Plus it looked light and fresh, which is how I like hot weather dishes! I needed a few items to make the dish so I went to Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday. They are the only store in area anymore that carries the Ronzoni Smart or Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta Products. I love shopping at Jungle Jim’s! They carry Anything and Everything, I’m serious! You could spend an entire day in there. The Deli, Produce, and Seafood Departments are my favorites.

 

 

 

So to make the Dish I’ll need; 1 can Pink Salmon (Fresh or Canned), Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, Ronzoni Garden Delight Trio Italiano Pasta, Sliced Black Olives, a few small Anchovy Slices in Olive Oil, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and 1 tube Just Add Basil Pesto. I added a few Ingredients and dropped an Ingredient from the original recipe, the original recipe and the web link are at the end of the post.

 

 

To prepare it; I first made my Pasta. Boil the Pasta according to the box; drain the Pasta and let it cool. Once cooled add the Pasta to a large bowl and add all the ingredients and fold in everything including the can of Pink Salmon. You can warm the Salmon if you prefer before adding it. Put the Pasta Salad in a large plastic bowl with a lid and set it in the fridge until your ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

The Pasta, Salmon, and Pest went great together! Everything tasted light and fresh. Excellent Dish. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Cooler out and cloudy today, mid 50’s. Finished up the yard work and we have the yard looking good! A lot of hard work but well worth it. Later in the day went up to see Dad for a while. For Dinner tonight it’s Steak and Potato! I prepared an 8oz. Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast.

 

This is one of several Buffalo Steaks I ordered from Wild Idea Buffalo a while back. And this one is one my favorites, the Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 OZ. TERES MAJOR FILET. The Steak is so flavorful and perhaps the most tender cuts of Buffalo. Of course all the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are this way! I had the Steak in the freezer so I sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

I pan fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned it with a bit of Crushed Dry Thyme along with McCormick Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I fried it about 4 minutes on one side and about 3 1/2 minutes on the other side, it gets done very quickly because it’s so lean. The Fillet came out medium rare with a beautiful char on it! These Wild Idea Buffalo Teres Major Steaks are tender and delicious, love them! I also prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms to go with my Steak along with a sprinkle of Blue Cheese. I seasoned them with a Basil Pesto. I don’t think there’s a better partner for Steak than Mushrooms, except maybe a Baked Potato!

 


To go with the Steak I prepared a Baked Potato. I took a medium-sized Russet Potato and took a small knife and made small punctures all around the Potato. Put the Potato in a Microwavable Bowl and cooked for 7 minutes and 20 seconds on high heat. Served the Potato Seasoned with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Love a good Potato! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 OZ. TERES MAJOR FILET

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.

Condiment of the Week – Pesto

April 7, 2016 at 5:01 AM | Posted in Condiment of the Week | Leave a comment

Basil pesto

Basil pesto

Pesto (Italian pronunciation: [ˈpesto]) or, in extenso, pesto alla genovese (Italian pronunciation: [ˈpesto ˈaːlla genoˈveːse]), is a sauce originating in Genoa, the capital city of Liguria, Northern Italy. It traditionally consists of crushed garlic, European pine nuts, coarse salt, basil, Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan cheese) and pecorino sardo (cheese made from sheep’s milk), all blended with olive oil.

 
Pesto is traditionally prepared in a marble mortar with a wooden pestle. First, garlic and pine nuts are placed in the mortar and reduced to a cream, then the washed and dried basil leaves are added with coarse salt and ground to a creamy consistency. Only then is a mix of Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino added. To help incorporate the cheese a little extra-virgin olive oil is added. In a tight jar (or simply in an air-tight plastic container), covered by a layer of extra-virgin olive oil, pesto can last in the refrigerator up to a week, and can be frozen for later use.

Pesto is commonly used on pasta, traditionally with mandilli de sæa (“silk handkerchiefs” in the Genoese dialect), trofie or trenette. Potatoes and string beans are also traditionally added to the dish, boiled in the same pot in which the pasta has been cooked.

It is sometimes used in minestrone. Pesto is sometimes served with sliced beef tomatoes and sliced boiled potatoes.

 
Pesto comes in a variety of recipes, some traditional and some modern, as the very noun pesto is a generic term for anything that is made by pounding.

Pesto alla genovese, the quintessential pesto recipe, is made with Genovese basil, coarse salt, garlic, Ligurian extra virgin olive oil (Taggiasco), European pine nuts (sometimes toasted) and a grated cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano and pecorino sardo or pecorino romano.

A slightly different version of this sauce exists in Provence, where it is known as pistou. In contrast with pesto alla genovese, pistou is generally made with olive oil, basil and garlic only: while cheese may be added, usually no nuts are included in a traditional pistou because no pine trees grow there to provide the nuts. Pistou is used in the typical soupe au pistou, a hearty vegetable soup with pistou flavour. The sauce did not originally contain basil, however; instead, cheese and olive oil were the main constituents.

Sometimes almonds are used instead of pine nuts, and sometimes mint leaves are mixed in with the basil leaves. It has been pointed out that pesto is essentially a combination of flavourful leaves, oily nuts, hard cheese, olive oil, garlic, salt and lemon juice; any ingredients meeting this description can produce a pesto-like condiment.

Pesto alla siciliana, sometimes called pesto rosso (red pesto), is a sauce from Sicily similar to pesto alla genovese but with the addition of tomato, almonds instead of pine nuts, and much less basil. Pesto alla calabrese is a sauce from Calabria consisting of (grilled) bell peppers, black pepper and more; these ingredients give it a distinctively spicy taste.

Outside Italy, the household name pesto has been used for all sorts of cold sauces or dips, mostly without any of the

Fettuccine with Pesto alla genovese

Fettuccine with Pesto alla genovese

original ingredients: arugula (instead of or in addition to basil), black olives, lemon peel, coriander, or mushrooms. In more northern countries, ramson leaves are sometimes used instead of basil. In the 19th century, Genovese immigrants to Argentina brought pesto recipes with them. A Peruvian variety, known as “tallarines verdes” (meaning green noodles, from Italian tagliarini), is slightly creamier, lacks pine nuts (because of their rarity and prohibitive cost in Peru), may use spinach and vegetable oil (in place of olive oil), and is sometimes served with roasted potatoes and sirloin steak.

Vegan variations of pesto can include mixes of fresh basil, nuts such as walnut or pine nut, olive oil, and the addition of miso paste and nutritional yeast to provide additional flavor enhancement to the dish.
