Mesquite Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges with Tofu and Corn

Mesquite Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges with Tofu and Corn

This post is in partnership with McCormick Grill Mates. #WalmartGrillMates #AvailableAtWalmart

These days more than ever, it’s simple pleasures like grilling on the patio with my family that bring me the most happiness. I’ve been playing around with different ways to grill veggie foods, but my very favorite meal right now is sweet potato wedges, corn on the cob, and tofu steaks. I grill all of this with McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning. The grilled mesquite sweet potatoes are especially a hit in our house, and they’re incredibly easy to make, so today I thought I’d share the recipe with you all.

MESQUITE GRILLED SWEET POTATO WEDGES
Serves 4

Ingredients
2 sweet potatoes
McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning
3 tablespoons olive oil

Light grill to preheat. Wash sweet potatoes well, dry, and cut lengthwise into wedges. Toss wedges with the olive oil, then sprinkle McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning on each side, and place on grill. Grill the sweet potatoes, turning once or twice, until grill marks appear on each side and each sweet potato is soft, about 15 minutes. I like to sprinkle some more of the McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning on each side during the grilling process as well. Once done, transfer to plates and serve immediately. I love to serve with grilled mesquite tofu steaks, grilled mesquite corn on the cob, and fresh greens. They’re also fantastic on their own as a snack. So good!

(Note: The tofu steaks and corn on the cob are super easy too. For the tofu steaks, cut extra firm tofu into rectangles, remove excess water, and marinade with McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Marinade, following the directions on the packet. Then grill for 6-8 minutes, turning twice. For the corn, baste with melted butter and grill until heated. Top both with McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning.)

The key ingredient to my beloved mesquite grilled sweet potatoes (and the tofu and corn!) is the McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning. This seasoning is genuinely next level you guys. Its bold flavor (smoky, barbecue goodness) and spicy crunch make everything in the meal taste more exciting. It also makes prep and cooking simple (I just shake a little on each side of the sweet potato wedges, tofu, and corn), so I can spend more time hanging with the people I love, just enjoying the bold flavors together. You can find McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning, along with the McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Marinade I use for the tofu, and the other mouthwatering seasonings in the Grill Mates line in the spices aisle at Walmart or through Walmart Online Grocery: https://bit.ly/WalmartGrillMates.

I’m hungry just thinking about it.

Hot Pavement

Tomorrow I plan on turning on the A/C for the first time, so it’s time for a reminder about hot pavement. Remember, if you can’t comfortably walk on it barefoot, they can’t either. Until next time, Good day, and good dog!

Red Curry with Broccoli and Tofu

Easy Vegetarian Thai Red Curry

The first meal I ever made for my now husband was red curry. (I also made way too many vodka and sodas, but that’s another story.) We made it often for years, then kind of forgot about it. It reemerged during quarantine though, and now it’s basically a staple. Here is how we make it!

Easy Vegetarian Thai Red Curry

Red Curry with Broccoli and Tofu

Serves 2-4

INGREDIENTS
package extra firm tofu, cubed*
1 can coconut milk
3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
2 cups broccoli florets
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 cups cooked jasmine rice
lime
basil
salt

Use paper towel to press as much water out of the tofu as possible, and cut into cubes. (Or, if you really want to save time, buy it already cubed like I do.) Heat about a tablespoon of coconut oil (or olive oil) in a large skillet, and pan fry the tofu over medium high heat until brown on all sides. While tofus is cooking, bring coconut milk to a low simmer in a saucepan. Add red curry paste, brown sugar, and garlic powder and stir until combined. Add broccoli florets and tofu and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Serve over rice with lime juice and basil or Thai basil. Serve immediately.

My Good Boy

good boy

The May sun really brings out that German red coloration. He’s not as dark red as some of them are.

He has the perfect German shepherd temperament. Trainable, smart, very affectionate, and very stable.

Made of Star Stuff

sagan made of star stuff

My birthday present this year is something wonderful.  A friend of mine from graduate school alerted me to a well-bred West German showline German shepherd that was available in Southern West Virginia.

We were looking for another male to add to our breeding program, and although I am fully aware of how closely related all German shepherds are to each other, we needed another line that was health-tested to mix into ours.

We have named him Sagan, WRF Made of Star Stuff for Darqueside, and his sire is Ajaks od Slankamena, a top winner in Serbia.

His mother was bred in Serbia and then imported while pregnant to West Virginia.  He was well-socialized and trained in West Virginia, because his owners, who run a boarding and training business, were going to keep him as one of their personal dogs.

Sagan stacked

He was initially named “Edward,” but I always wanted to give a German shepherd a science nerd name.  And since it was my turn to name the dog, this one became Sagan.

I have had him a few weeks, and I have to say this is the best dog I’ve ever had. He is biddable and smart. He is gentle and kind.  He loves kids.  He loves me. I know that he will eventually mature into something more serious and loyal, but right now he is the happy, goofy puppy who fears nothing.

The way he looks at me is the way a smart dog looks at person. He has become my office dog, and he lies by the door while I’m teaching my remote students. He knows that if I rise, the next thing will be a walk or a chance to play with the jolly ball.

He knows no evil. He knows only the joy of his lion paws tearing through the green grass.

I have never had one of this type before.  He is a sound moving dog, though not as flashy as our American dogs, but he possesses a profoundly good temperament. He is very similar to Quest, our 100 percent American male.

He is the best birthday present I have received in a long time, and he’s a very special dog.

I am absolutely certain that this is the breed of dog I was always supposed to have. I know there are lots of crappy German shepherds out there, but a good one is an awesome dog to have.

Bohemian Bedrooms

10 Beautiful Bohemian Bedrooms
1  |   2   |   3   |   4   |   5   |    6    |   7   |   8  |   9   |   10   

Truth be told, we need to be focusing on the freaking kitchen and kitchen only right now, not our master bedroom. But I came across these images I saved a couple of years ago and wanted to share. Even after all this time, I’m still in love with every single one of these spaces. I don’t care if the boho “trend” is played out, I’ll always love it. (You can take the hippie girl out of the mountains and plant her in the Chicago burbs, or however it goes…) I actually like the way our bedroom has slowly come together, but it needs some finishing touches, and these spaces are inspiring me to bring them to life.

品川美容外科クリニックの安全対策からわかる告訴・訴訟問題

 

ひと昔前は、人間は自然なままがいいといった意見が多く、

美容外科クリニックを利用しているというと、

軽蔑を受けることもあって、多くの人が美容外科の利用を隠していたものです。

 

かくいう私も品川美容外科クリニックを利用していますが、

利用を始めたころは、おっかなびっくり、

こそこそした気持ちで利用していた記憶があります。

 

しかし最近はプチ整形といって、

気になる部分だけ整形することで

施術時間も短く体の負担も少なくできることから

気軽にプチ整形を行う人も多くなってきており、

わたしも美容外科の利用をとりたてて隠さなくなっています。

何より品川美容外科クリニックを利用してコンプレックスを解消したせいでしょう。

ずいぶん気持ちが楽になって感謝しているくらいです。

 

しかし、美容外科クリニックの利用者が増える一方で、

裁判になったトラブルも聞かれるようになったため、

美容外科クリニックの利用については、クリニック選びのため、

インターネット上で情報を収集したり、判例を読んだりしたものです。

 

大手クリニックではたくさんの施術が行われる分、

小さなクリニックに比べて告訴・訴訟問題が起きやすい現実があります。

そのため、美容外科を利用する側のわたしたちは、

情報収集がかかせません。

 

わたしが利用している品川美容外科クリニックでは

施術前のヒアリングや不安な点の解消、

そして、施術後のアフターケアが充実しているという話を聞いたことが、

わたしが品川美容外科クリニックを選んだきっかけです。

 

聞いた情報があっても、はじめての利用の時は

もちろん不安がありました。

ただ、クリニックに行ってみて、

しっかりとわたしの抱える不安にも耳を傾けてくれる姿勢や

丁寧な説明を聞いてみて、

品川美容外科クリニックの仕事の丁寧さを実感しました。

アフターサービスも良く、

施術後の診療は無料で利用することができますし、

施術について保障制度も設けています。

 

大手クリニックなどで聞く問題に対する安全対策を

しっかりされているのだとわかりました。

 

そもそも施術を受ける側として、

問題になるようなことは絶対いやですし、

しっかり話を聞いてくれて

実際の施術はもちろん、アフターケアもちゃんとしていることは

うれしいことです。

 

 

小規模か大手かは関係なく

品川美容外科クリニックのような安全対策やサービスを

どの美容外科でも取り組んでくれれば、

わたしたちも

安心して施術をお願いしたいと思いますし、

告訴・訴訟問題なんてかなしい出来事は

減っていくはずです。

 

調べてもなお不安を抱える、

過去のわたしのような人が

少しでも不安を緩和して

気持ちよく施術を受けられるようになることを

願うばかりです。
