Girl and Goatceries Elotes Kit

This is the Girl and Goatceries elotes kit. It is yummy. Yes, I could get most of the components separately on my own, but they do have an interesting house-made sauce that comes with, and some nights, you just want someone to put it together for you…

Just grill the par-boiled corn for a minute or two (stovetop grill pan makes it easy), and assemble: kewpie mayo, cheese, cilantro, lime, Yucatan sauce. Adding a little cayenne wouldn’t hurt either.

Bountiful Result

Today’s assemble-your-own lunch board. A little random, because we had some leftover roast pork and Yorkshire pudding that Kevin made the other night, along with sautéed pea pods and roasted broccoli. ALSO a few leftover chicken wings from takeout the other night. So all I did was put it all out, slice some apples and pears, cut up some cheese, and pull out the pumpkin & ginger muffins. Pretty bountiful result. 🙂

Made it to Lunch

Anand’s “made it to lunch” pose!

I tossed a loaf of Pillsbury French bread dough in the toaster oven for a treat — 25 minutes later, hot, crusty bread, put out with butter and veggies (pepper and tomatoes from the garden!) and hummus and dip and cheese and salami and sliced apples and clementines.

Easy weekday lunch requiring no more than 10 minutes on my part, useful when everyone wants (or needs) to eat at different times. When it gets colder, I might add a pot of soup on the stove.

I’m thinking maybe I can start including more varied elements in this if I keep doing it for school lunches. Like classic antipasto options, or Indonesian gado-gado, or sushi ingredients. Hmm….
