I don't know what it is, but since I've gotten my band, I really enjoy cooking. Don't misunderstand, I'm still feeding Blaine stuff out of bags and boxes, because sometimes that's just the easiest and quickest thing to do.
But, I like finding a recipe we both like and making it. Maybe it's because I want better food, instead of larger quantities. Maybe it's because he so appreciative of me taking the time to make him some love-filled food.
I'm a much pickier eater now. Maybe it's because I am doing better at keeping the dishes washed and the kitchen clean. Not good, just better. I still don't like doing it. But to cook, you go through ALL the pots, pans, and bowls!
Today we went to Sam's and bought some crab cakes. I'm not ready to make those yet! I decided I wanted some remoulade sauce to go with them. I found this recipe online at Easy Remoulade Sauce.
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions, white and green parts
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet pickles
- dash garlic powder
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Dijon or Creole mustard
- few drops Worcestershire sauce
- pepper, to taste
Preparation:Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to blend flavors and chill.
Makes about 1 cup sauce. Good with crab cakes, fish, fried seafood, etc..
I used parsley and green onions out of the pots on the front porch. I don't think I actually "measured" anything. I did add some horseradish for a little 'kick.'
I put it all in my tiny food processor and blended the crap out of it! I actually forgot to put any pepper in. I liked the sauce better than the crab cakes. I won't be buying them again. I will continue to be on the lookout for a good frozen crab cake. Someday, I'll bite the bullet and make my own.
Blaine was still hungry about two hours later. We went to Sonic and ordered him a Jr. Deluxe Cheeseburger. Tell me why the menu board said the burger was $1.49 and they charged us $1.19 for a burger plus $.50 for cheese?
What would you do?
