Egg, Cucumber, and Tomato Salad

Not my favorite salad, but I’m not a fan of eggs.

Shaker Style Turkey Cutlets with Croquette Potatoes, Roasted Spaghetti Squash, and Sauteed Green Beans

So I worked on the Turkey Cutlets and the Croquette Potatoes. I was terrified the entire time I made the cutlets. Chef even came over and watched me do most of it. I am not a meat person, I always over cook it. But these turned out really well! They were really good to! For those who have never had Croquette Potatoes you are missing out! They are mashed potatoes dipped in breadcrumbs and deep fried. AKA heaven in your mouth. I’ve never had Spaghetti Squash before, but this was really good. So sweet and tasty.

So word of warning, plastic melts. Yes we all know this empirically, but what you don’t realize, when you’re stressing over the turkey cooking, is that when you put the cutting board near the stove, it’s getting hot. There was plastic ALLLLLLL over the stove. It was really embarrassing.

Vichyssoise

Vichyssoise

Also known as Cold Potato and Leek Soup. I love this soup, but my group wasn’t a big fan.  It can be served warm, but you have to re-adjust the seasoning.

Waldorf Salad

Waldorf Salad

This is an iconic dish. It’s covered in mayo. It was not my favorite salad, but it was worth trying once.

Braised Short Ribs with Rice Pilaf, Glazed Carrots, and Sauteed Spinach and Red Swiss Chard

I made the Short Ribs. I am not a meat person, but these were really easy.  They were so tender they fell of the bone. The Spinach and Chard dish was interesting. I’ve never had Swiss Chard before, but it was really good for a spinach dish. The Glazed Carrots and Rice Pilaf were good, normal dishes.
