Spicy Vegetarian Pad Thai

I just love pad thai but when eating out its very high in sodium and that discourages me to order this dish.

I sometimes make it myself and since I had a container full of bean sprouts it seemed like a perfect lunch!

Strawberry and Apple Jam

At the lake we always have a lot of fruit to make salads, desserts or to just cut up and put out when we have company.  (which is a lot).  For some reason both my husband and I picked up 2 one pound packages of strawberries.  

I try to do an inventory check in the refrigerator a couple times a week.  Don't you hate when good food ends up in the back of the refrigerator and it goes bad.  I certainly do!  

This weekend I think strawberry short cake will be a great dessert for our family get-together and we will pick up fresh strawberries but to keep the ones we have and before they go bad I thought about making a jam to preserve them.  Since there are 2 apples in the refrigerator draw I will be incorporating them as well.

Cindy's Tip: If you butcher has the longer short ribs; ask them to slice in half. They are easier to work with and fit in your dutch oven and to serve.

 

Veal Medallions Over A Pea Salad With A Lemon Sauce
  • Time: 40 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Veal Medallions Over A Pea Salad With A Lemon Sauce

As I was planning my post for Veal Made Easy, the perfect recipe came to me!  Veal medallions over a pea salad with a lemon sauce. I love easy dishes that are full of flavor and perfect for everyday to gourmet.

Many of my favorite ingredients are included in this healthy veal dish.  This recipe and opinions from this post are solely mine. 

I am a proud Italian and grew up in my Nana’s kitchen. We loved cooking our weeknight meals but more importantly our Family Sunday dinners.. She and I would talk about what we should make 3 days before. I cherish all of the memories with her and still love to share them with my readers on www.CindysTable.com. One of our family favorites is veal and that made writing this post extremely exciting to me.

My husband and I love cooking veal dishes and some of the ones you can find on my blog are herb crusted veal chopsveal scaloppini with sage leavesbraised veal shanks with fresh herbs, Veal chop Milaneseveal stuffed meatballs to name just a few.

Many of my friends tell me they don’t care for veal so I always ask if I could prepare a veal dish for them. Each and every time I have they’ve been delighted!  

There are many different cuts of veal and, depending on the recipe, it’s important to buy the appropriate cut. I always call the butcher to make sure the right cut is available.

I love sharing good cooking tips with my readers. Here are the different cuts of veal and how best to use them. 

  • Breasts: The veal breasts are great for slow cooking. I love to prepare the breast in my slow cooker with vegetables and lots of herbs.
  • Chuck: The chuck cut is also great for slow cooking and especially for a stew.
  • Leg: The leg is a perfect cut for roasting. This is considered a premium cut.
  • Loan: Another great choice for braising or stews. Low and slow cooking!
  • Rib Chop: This cut of veal reminds me of a tender steak. You can find these either bone-in or boneless.
  • Rib roast: Great for roasting, perfect for a family gathering.
  • Scaloppini: One of my favorite cuts to prepare cutlet style dishes. They can come thin or as a thicker cut where I would use a mallet to pound nice and thin. These also pan sear up very quickly.
  • Shank: Osso Bucco is one of my favorite braised dishes. I start this dish on my stove top with vegetables, sauce, wine and bay leaves then place in the oven on a low heat for 6-8 hours.

When cooking with a rib roast or rib chops be sure to cook until the internal temperature is 140 degrees F.

Even living in Florida we enjoy a lasagna on occasions.  I feel very fortunate that we have so many farmers markets and the vegetables are just perfect.  I thought a vegetable lasagna would be perfect.

Lasagna is traditionally prepared in a rectangle baking pan.  I am preparing this vegetable lasagna in a 5 qt. brazing pan then slicing into wedges.  I thought this would be a lasagna look fancy!
