I can’t say that four or six weeks ago when Robin said that we were going Meatless Monday, that I was all that excited. First, let’s decide on the definition of “Meatless”. so we decided that red meat – beef – would be eliminated for one day a week. Salads, stir fried vegetables, seafood and chicken would be on the menu
for Mondays. It has almost been six weeks since we have had beef. Not because we don’t like it, but just because we have found other things. Lots of seafood – salmon, halibut, shrimp, cod, talapia to name a few – have entered our menu. And always chicken and lamb. Wednesday we will have Pork Chops done some way.
So look at what we had tonight. A Crab Salad! Three different types of lettuce, Orange and Pineapple Salsa, Avocado Slices, Tomato and fresh squeezed Lime Juice. And this was really a good and refreshing salad. The Orange and Pineapple Salsa – we made it from scratch – was great. I can dream of it with Grilled Pork Steaks. And yes, I did eat my half of the avocado, not one of my more favorite vegetables.
So there is what we had tonight. And it was good. There is no real recipe. All from scratch and whatever was available. The crab was Crown Prince Lump Wild Caught White Crab Meat. The one thing that I don’t particularly like is the monosodium glutamate (MSG) that they have put in the can. But a lot of Asian foods have MSG and this product comes from Thailand. Give a salad of this type a try. Cheers!
