- I love salmon.
- I love hummus
- I love barbecue sauce
- I love cold, non-lettuce salads
So yeah, reason enough to try it. The first time I made it 2 weekends ago, I ate the entire bowl for lunch. It was great! I actually told Jenn right then and there that “Humbecue is crack” and that I “may not be allowed to have it in the house again.” That lasted all of two weeks and I had to have it again. Adam is working late tonight, and I know that I could’ve taken advantage of it and made zucchini and mushroom something or other, but this was what I wanted.
I mixed together (for about 3 servings)
- 1 15-oz. can of salmon, drained and cleaned of nasty bits (canned salmon is gross. That must be why Jenn always uses the little packets instead of cans. Still shuddering at nastiness)
- 1/3 c. Tribe Spicy Chipotle Hummus
- About 2 Tbsp. San Francisco Original Firehouse #2 Bar-B-Que Sauce
Mix thoroughly to end up with a tuna-salad like consistency. Jenn put cucumbers in hers, and I wish I’d remembered them at the store. Plain was good, but with cucumbers, this salad is STELLAR! My bad… oh well. The flavors of the chipotle peppers in the hummus, the sweet-hot of the bbq sauce, and the salmon are just a fantastic combo. Thanks for the amazingness, Jenn!
I fixed myself a plate of favorites: Humbecue Salmon Salad, pan-roasted broccoli, and half a sweet potato (more on that in a minute). No, I didn’t eat a turquoise fingernail.
A simple and delicious meal, but there’s something HUGE about it. That was about a cup of broccoli. I only made half a sweet potato. I ate about 1/2 cup of the Humbecue salmon salad. And I’m satisfied. And I’m not going back for more. Sure, I could. There’s plenty left. I could make another half a sweet potato. But I’m not going to. I’m going to listen to my body and save the remaining room I may have for a 31-cent scoop of reduced fat ice cream at Baskin Robbins! This is major progress for me. M-A-J-O-R!
I’m pleased to have another Guest for Dinner! The fantastic Spiceaholic from One Bite at a Time offered to be my guest tonight, and I jumped at the chance! This blog is always chock full of amazingly flavorful looking recipes, and she did NOT let me down! This recipe will a) be requested in my house and b) be a huge hit in anyone else’s house! So, Spiceaholic, pull up a chair, have a seat at my table, and tell us about your meal!
Hey guys! It’s Spiceaholic from One Bite at a Time. I was very excited when Mara asked me to be a Guest for Dinner! I love this new feature and I love getting new ideas for yummy eats from everyone.
I have really been craving pizza the past few days. Usually when we get the craving for pizza we call for delivery or heat up a frozen pizza. I’m not much of a baker and haven’t attempted to make my own crust from scratch. One day that’ll happen, but not today!
Anyway, a few days ago I’d bought some individual pre-prepared pizza crusts in the hopes that I’d be inspired to make my own should a craving hit. I’m glad I did! I was playing around with some ideas this weekend and came up with a recipe for a supreme pizza-inspired sauce that would go great as a pizza topping or would make a great pasta bake. Since I’ve been wanting pizza, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try it out.
Once the sauce was made, putting the pizza together was quick.
1.5 cups Spicy Supreme Pizza Pasta Sauce
2 individual pre-prepared pizza crusts
1/2 cup finely shredded Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place pizza crusts on top. Divide the sauce among the crusts. Sprinkle cheese over pizzas. Pop into oven and bake about 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and turns golden brown.
Thanks so much Spiceaholic!! I’ll be making that sauce sometime soon for sure! Would you like to be my guest for dinner? Just send a short write-up of a favorite dinner with a photo (or 2 or 3) to email@example.com and I’ll post entries in the order they come in. Seriously. Anyone can do this! Blog or no blog! These are the guidelines:
- a short post outlining in some way what you ate for dinner. It can be a recipe, a description, a how-to, or a combination of all of those.
- a photo of the meal! Everyone loves pictures!
- What did you THINK of your meal? Would you eat it again? Does the recipe have a story?
As slow as the earlier portion of this week went, is as quick as I hope the rest of it goes… there’s been drama at work, freak-outs about strange diseases (not just swine flu), and I’ve made the decision to wear high wedges for the last 2 days. Going through the day a bit taller just makes me feel better!
Have a wonderful night all!
P.S. The gorgeous KLM is having a giveaway for Mix-My-Granola! Trust me. I ordered one tube of Mix My Granola when the buzz first started, and NEVER has a cereal product disappeared quicker in our house! It was simply FABULOUS!
