Whats Cookin Good Lookin: Full Course Feast

Hey yall,

I have been cooking more often so I did my best in remembering to take pics while cooking.

Lets start with an appetizer...

This is something a little different but actually its your typical snack but in a different way...Carrots in Peanut (Butter) Sauce.I blanched some carrots added in organic peanut butter (which explains the consistentcy of the sauce), almond milk, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and whatever kind of spices you like. I was shocked but this taste so good.



 For breakfast..brunch or maybe even lunch you can have Shrimp n' Grits that flavorful southern classic. Put on a pot of grits boiling in water..add in salt, pepper and once done add in milk or heavy cream for a nice creamy side...you can even add in some cheese. 
Now sauteed your shrimp in butter, scallions, cilantro, garlic, bacon. After that has cooked add in your milk/cream and a few good squeezes of lime juice.



For Lunch: Toasted avocado and Sunny Side Up Sandwich. Toast 2 slices of bread or an english muffin if you like. Take half of an avocado and smash it on one side of bread. Fry up to eggs sunny side up in a pan. add to the sandwich salt, pepper and a sprinkle of cheddar..fold and enjoy!



Main Course: Crockpot Corned Beef and Greens
In a crockpot put in Corned beef just a lil bit of water if you want and add in the seasoning packet that comes with it. Let it cook for 4-8 hours on high or low whatever works for you. It will come out tender and tasty. Easy..
flake off the spices before serving
And for a nice Glaze combine mustard and brown sugar together and melt and cover beef...


Now for the Crock pot Greens I combined collards and kale in a crockpot with veggie broth, chopped onion, garlic, and spices


 And for the non-beef eaters, Spicy Curry breadcrumb Salmon with Spinach. I spiced the salmon with curry and red pepper flakes, a few other spices and coated the fish in bread crumbs. Cooked in the pan then sauteed the spinach.


For that sweet tooth Frozen Grapes will hit the spot!
