Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you

and

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.

Grilled Chile Lime Sirloin Skewers

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.


CHILE-LIME MARINADE
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

Directions
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.
