A Recipe from Clean-up Day

Posted by on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 4:17 PM

Once a year, we have a company-wide clean-up* — a day that feeds into my hoarder side.

I'm not the only hoarder in the building. A coworker showed me a collection of hard discs (and if he ever needs them, he's still got his Mac Classic). And someone just could not part with a whole box of circa-1995 subscription premiums for Memphis magazine.

As a thank-you for subscribing to the magazine you got a "kitchen garden" — with cilantro, dill, marigold, and pansy seeds plus recipes for dilled meatballs, cilantro shrimp, and marigold cheese muffins.

The muffin recipe follows ...

Not sure of the source of the recipe, and I couldn't find anything too similar online. The dilled meatballs are a take on Swedish meatballs, and the cilantro shrimp is an interesting-sounding dish with a salsa made with tomato paste, which I've never seen before, though I'm no expert.

*Clean-up Day also reminds me of TV reporter Richard Ransom and those old segments on restaurant inspections and how he'd snarl, "Clean-up!" And the pink slime in the ice machine. (I rented no fewer than two apartments in Midtown with those mini-fridges with the always-frozen-solid freezers, one of which had purple slime because I was that hardcore.)
