Joel fired up the grill for our first BBQ of the season…..look what he made for me! It was so good! Salmon marinated in ginger sesame dressing, cheese filled peppers, grilled veggies and orzo. It made my heart happy…. all of the love….and the omega 3.
Hi Mennonite foodie people,
This is Joel, Holly’s boyfriend. I came across the best picture ever of a kitchen implement today and I had to get to post it. Check it out!
Personally, I think it should be the 7 Sweets and 7 Sours mascot, but that’s just me…
As Joel walked out the door on Sunday to get some last minute groceries, he yelled “Do you need anything else?” Without hesitation and for no apparent reason, I called back “Yes, a large cabbage!”
I think I had a case of the Mennonite “I might not have enough food to feed everyone” jitters. When the dust settled and everyone had gone home, the cabbage had not been touched. Not very surprising.
However, this mishap has led to two wonderful discoveries. 1) I need to stop worrying that one of my guests will go hungry…. It has never actually happened. 2) I love cabbage! I have been putting it on and in everything. Salads and sandwiches have an added crunch and nice bite with a bit of the green stuff thrown in. Make a BCT instead of a BLT. Yum! And one head lasts forever…..I should know.
I’m super excited about my first Sunday cooking day. On the menu is;
– “Baked Sausage Pie” (pg 77), a recipe submitted by Mrs. Roy Huber, of East Petersburg, PA
– “Hot Slaw #1” (pg 146), a recipe submitted by Anna Miller, of Denbigh, VA
-“Dampf Knepp” or “Caramel Dumplings” (pg 318), a recipe submitted by Mrs. Edgar Strite of Hagerstown, Md and Mrs. Betty Beck of Archbold, Ohio
The guest list for the evening’s event includes, my darling boyfriend, Joel. My brother Shawn, and his wife Abbey (and their two babies!) and two, very lucky, yet to be determined guests.
I can’t wait to let you know how it goes!
