Set the Table 2017 | Week 25

It's my gorgeous Mom's 65th birthday today! She taught me how to make egg salad a long time ago and I've tweaked her super simple recipe today in honor of her, my best friend, my neighbor, my workout buddy, the AMAZING woman who taught me EVERYTHING.

I love you Mom. Happy happy BIRTHDAY!

Sriracha Egg n Vege Salad

2 hard boiled pastured, organic eggs diced (I got some this week from Radical Root Farm Stand.)
1/2 cucumber diced
1 red pepper diced
1/2 avocado diced
1 Tbsp Vegenaise (or mayo)
1 tsp sriracha
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 dill pickle slice diced
Small handful of fresh cilantro (stems finely chopped + leaves rough chopped)
Red Lettuce rough chopped

Mix eggs, cucumber, pepper, avocado, cilantro stems and mayo a medium bowl.  Taste and season with salt and pepper. Arrange red lettuce on a plate and add egg salad over the top. Add the diced pickle to the top and sprinkle with cilantro leaves. Enjoy!

  • Each #SettheTable2017 post begins with a featured recipe(s) + upcoming week's game plan followed by a picture diary of last week's chaos. I sign off every post with a handy reference list of my favorite foodie articles (some new, some repeated). 
  • #CatchmyGrit on my Instagram throughout the week to capture the fun, the food and the family table reactions (good and bad). C'est la vie, I selfy-ishly light it UP in pics and videos to keep truckin! 
  • New to this series? Here's the STORY behind my #SettheTable2017 food adventures with Pure Barre Kildeer.
  • My two go to's for meal planning organization (the grocery list app features are rad): 1. Jamie's Ultimate Recipes App 2. Sarah's My New Roots Recipe App 

Week 25's Game plan:

  • Colossal Cauliflower Gratin (J app) or this similar recipe online
  • Taco Tuesday
  • Quick and Easy Tray Baked Cod (J app) or this similar recipe online
  • Cookout

    Wrap it UP with last week's action:

    Tacos. How about that crazy green tortilla on my plate? It was pretty darn good! Find them here.

    Sarah Britton's Carrot and Red Lentil Soup (you can find the recipe on her New Roots App) was AMAZEBALLS. I get my kids to eat soup by serving it with pizza. They have to finish their small bowl of soup to have more pizza. It worked for Tommy and Mac. Not so much for Abbie:)

    Take out Sushi makes me so happy.

    So does meeting friends on the farm for produce pick up! Looking good Matt!

    Slow-cooked Onion Jam Chicken

    6 organic chicken thighs + 1 jar Holcomb Hollow onion jam + 1/4 cup water + 3-4 Tbsp freshly chopped oregano + sea salt n pepper 
    Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 4 hours

    Homemade Strawberry Ice cream

    1 cup organic heavy cream

    2 cups organic half n half
    3 cups organic strawberries (from my Prairie Wind Family Farms CSA!)
    1/2 cup organic sugar

    Purée 1/2 of the strawberries in a blender or nutribullet. Mash up the rest in a bowl by hand and mix in the sugar. Combine everything in a bowl and pour liquid into an ice cream maker. Process for 25 minutes. Transfer to a container and keep frozen.  

    I cannot wait to make brownies this week!

    I am in love with my new brass family table do-dah's! Find them on sale here. I just bought another set to make a perfect 10.
