Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you
Happy Birthday to one of my dearest friends, Laura!
Here’s a Lime Jello Salad I made
just in time for this holiday!
My Quick Lime Jello Salad
1 cup small curd full fat cottage cheese
1 small box of sugar free lime jello
1/2 cup of whipping cream
Dissolve jello in lightly beaten whipped cream, add the cottage cheese and mix well. Pour into small container and chill until set.
* This is pretty rich and I’m only able to eat about 1/3 of a cup at a time. It was nice for a quick treat, but nothing like Mom’s Lime Jello Salad with pineapple, marshmallows and nuts! Her’s was the best.
My Handyman raved over some
Chile Lime Shrimp Skewers he had
at a local restaurant recently. I tried to recreate
that flavor using
Sirloin steak instead…because
that’s what I had on hand.
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 fresh serrano Chile pepper, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon cumin
One sirloin steak (or 1 1/4-pound skirt or flank steak)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
9-12 wooden skewers, pre-soaked
In a small food processor or blender , combine the marinade ingredients and process until smooth. Transfer to a plastic bag. Thinly slice the steak into strips. Season the steak with salt and pepper and add to the marinade. Make sure all steak strips are fully coated with the marinade. Place in the fridge to marinate for 1-4 hours.
Remove the steak strips from the bag as you thread the pre-soaked wooden skewers. Place on a hot grill and cook about 4 minutes per side. Serve with a side salad or your favorite veggie. ..maybe some Creamy Garlic Polenta or Warm Cauliflower Bacon Salad.
