Karl’s Garlic Lemon Barbecued Corn

I am barbecuing chicken wings for this Sunday’s Dinner and I needed a vegetable side dish. While Jan like corn on the cob, much of what you find in the stores has already gone moldy—pull back the top leaves and take a sniff. My wife will not touch it when it is that state. Fortunately, there is an Summer vegetable stand near us that has really fresh corn.

Karl’s Ginger Lemon Curd

Adapted from a Fine Cooking recipe

My neighbor lemon bombed me again (~60 lemons), with a hint that he was looking forward to some more of my lemon curd. When I had processed the fruit I had 14+ cups of juice and zest. If I turned all of this into lemon curd it would get very expensive—19 cups of sugar, 15 sticks of butter and almost 5 dozen eggs, as well as all of the jars to put it in.

Karl’s Lemon Marmalade Roast Chicken

Jan invited her new half-brother to dinner so I was planning a nice meal. In the end he came down sick and didn’t come. I’m afraid he missed a really nice meal.

Karl’s Lemon Saffron Couscous

I am making Surf-and-Turf for Miriam’s birthday dinner this weekend. I am making a Tunisian salad and I thought lemon couscous would be a good compliment. I have made lemon couscous before, but I thought I could improve it.

Karl’s Avgolemono Soup II (Greek Egg and Lemon Soup)

Jan’s friend needed a soft soup after her oral surgery and Jan’s family is descending upon us. Blended soups are the order of the day. In addition to Ezo Gelin and Maafe, I will be making another soup I have made before, Avgolemono.

Karl’s Mimi’s Sick Chicken Soup

When we lived in China, Miriam acquired the nickname “Mimi.” Originally this meant “Kitty cat.” Her kindergarten teacher changed one tone, so that it meant “Riddle cat,”  because she asked so many questions.

Karl’s Barbecued Salmon with Lemon and Dill

I saw this meal as a Northwest Fusion, Northwest (US) cuisine with Asian influences. When I visit my sister, Karen, she usually makes a barbecued salmon. I thought it would go well with my wild rice and mushroom soup.

Karl’s Lemon Couscous

I am making a Moroccan feast for my birthday dinner. A tajine is frequently served over a bed of couscous. I decided that my vegetable tajine needed a lemon couscous. I looked at several recipes, but they all seemed very shy with the lemon juice.

Karl’s Meyer Lemon Curd

Adapted from a Fine Cooking recipe

Jan had a desire for lemon curd, so she bought some Meyer lemons. I decided I should make it before the lemons went bad. On-line the ingredient lists of the recipes were pretty much the same—butter, eggs, lemon juice, sugar, and lemon zest.

Karl’s Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme

I was shopping at Lucky supermarket and I noticed that they had whole salmon for $3 a pound. It may have been a weekday, but I could not pass that up. Personally I prefer to barbecue salmon, but it is a weekday and with all of the fires in California it has been constant “spare the air” days.
