Kids love desserts and they should enjoy them. Of course, desserts should be beneficial to health as well as kid friendly. I think I’ll make my healthy ice cream cake, fruit salad with my Creme Anglaise, my healthy chocolate brownies and also carob brownies. I have already prepared mini banana muffins (made with whole grains, no butter, margarine or egg yolks). They are in my freezer.
Am having company that loves real Jewish delicacies. Chopped liver, made with whole eggs, extra egg yolks and chicken fats is one of their favorites. Not heart healthy. I’ll let you know if they can tell if my chopped liver is real. It is actually parve but it does not taste like nuts, beans or mushrooms like the usual vegetarian chopped livers. I don’t make it with nuts, beans or mushrooms.
I will slice the turkey in strips to complement the green beans and I will add sliced peeled and cooked red peppers. This will be pretty with the seaweed casserole (white sticky rice, seasoning and seaweed strips).
I decided to make a fresh fruit salad for first course. So the menu will be Fresh Fruit Salad served in pretty glass dishes, turkey breast and green beans, Seaweed Tofu Casserole (without the tofu). For dessert, Carob Brownies and green tea. Should be great.
Cassie, On Air Talent at LynnCAM TV, is coming to dinner as a friend and for a planning session for my new series of “Something Healthy to Eat – Cassie Cooks Kosher”. I’m serving Seaweed Tofu Salad Casserole (without the tofu), Turkey and green beans and carob brownies for dessert. I don’t know what the first course will be yet. The show will most likely be filmed at the new LynnCAM TV studios and not in my kitchen as the previous shows were. Stay tuned. It will be on You Tube.
Now that the weather is getting warmer Hank and I had a desire for Seaweed Tofu Salad (pg. 56). My friend’s son lived on that all of last summer. If you like sushi you will love this and it’s much easier to make.
My friend Cassie (on air talent from LynnCam TV) loves lox. We will be making homemade lox together (pg. 19) - no nitrites and not smoked. We will be doing this for one of our new shows, “Something Healthy to Eat – Cassie Cooks Kosher”.
Love eggplant. Made two versions for lunch. Fried eggplant and caponata. We ate them both. Delicious!
Tomorrow will be Italian night: Garlic Bread (homemade refrigerator bread to go into next cookbook), Green Salad, Russian Dressing (pg. 61), Chicken Cacciatore (Traditional) (pg.74), Semolina and Whole Wheat Pasta, Sorbet (pg. 222). Colleagues from LynnCam TV will be my guests.
Before Pesach (Passover) I found Turkey Jerky. It’s fat free and I thought I could substitute it for salami to make “salami and eggs”. For lunch, I made my omelet (pg. 21) with Turkey Jerky. It did not taste like salami and eggs but it was a very good dish, one which I will repeat. Hank liked it and that’s what counts. Keep him healthy and happy.
