Shrimp Balls

Getting down to the last couple of meatballs! These were a riff on a shrimp burger recipe I’ve made before (and I served these as sliders).

Chicken A La King Balls

One more meatball! We’re down to only four more left after this. The project is winding down!

I based these on the chicken a la king I made not too long ago. They were pretty good!

Becky’s Family Meatballs (Danish and Italian)

Not one, but two meatball recipes comin’ atcha. And this time, with a guest star!

Ever since this project began, I’ve been excited to pair up with Becky to make both of her family recipes for meatballs. I had only had her Dad’s in the past (and loved them) but knew her Mom was a great Italian cook (and I’ve had several of her great dishes) so knew those would be worth trying as well. As expected, both were terrific, and it was really fun to make them with Coop.

Now, these are Becky’s family recipes, and as a result, have been written down very free-form. There aren’t measurements for many of the items, etc. But we made do by eyeing things until Becky thought they looked/felt right. Photo here isn’t great because I recently got a new phone, so this is a makeshift shot cropped from Instagram.

Pumpkin Bread

Naturally, this Smitten Kitchen recipe is a winner, and is officially my new go-to pumpkin bread recipe. John isn’t all that into pumpkin stuff and still ate the majority of this loaf. I forgot to take a picture, but note this makes an oversized loaf – a silicone loaf pan came in handy here.

Meatballs Stroganoff

I love meatballs. I love stroganoff. Unsurprisingly, I loved stroganoff meatballs.

This recipe relies heavily on the sauce I use when I make this dish, with some minor improvisation. The meatballs are relatively straightforward, using meatloaf mix and adding a punch of dill. Easy and satisfying and good with buttered egg noodles.

Salmon with Grapefruit Lemon Butter Sauce

I told you I was going to work grapefruit into another salmon recipe. Didn’t get a photo of this one but improvised it last night and we were very happy with it. Served with potato cauliflower puree and broccoli.

Sauteed Salmon with Citrus Salsa

My takeaway on this recipe: I enjoy grapefruit with salmon in general, but don’t necessarily need to make this salsa again. Partially because I am terrible at making citrus sections that don’t look ridiculous. The seared salmon is great though, and is a nice neutral leftover the next day (I had some with soba noodles and broth for lunch). Pictured with a half portion of their surprisingly caloric cilantro quinoa, which is fine but too caloric and similar to another recipe that I make for me to want to make it again.
