This term is defined as being “almost vegetarian” and that is what I guess I have become. I do take bites of Jim’s steak or hamburger and the other day I just could not resist the pork loin ribs Jim barbecued and had more than just a bite. I’m thinking of having meat one day a week.
But last night I was good and made eggplant parmesan with pasta while Jim grilled himself a rib eye steak and baked potato.
I used Panko for the breading on the eggplant and it really made it crisp and crunchy….loved it!
I need to find recipes where I can just add meat to Jim’s version instead of making two separate meals every night. Any suggestions out there that would accomplish that?
I’ve thought of spaghetti with bunch of veggies and then add Italian sausage to Jim’s and then, of course, there is always stir-fry. What else?
It contained lettuce, cucumber, carrots, cottage cheese, beets and leftover trout. I’ve been using less and less dressing and have really enjoyed actually tasting the flavor of the vegetables.
Several people asked me for the recipe for the apple dessert from the other day so here it is.
1 pie crust (refrigerated or homemade)
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/2 - 3/4 c sugar
2 T cornstarch
1 t cinnamon
3-4 c thinly sliced apples
1 t sugar
Prepare crust and place on foil-lined pizza pan. Brush crust with some of the egg white to seal.
Mix 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Add apples; toss to coat well. Spoon into center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edges. Bring crust up over apples to form a border of about 2 inches, pleating crust as needed. Brush edge of crust with remaining egg white; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.
Bake in preheated 425* oven 20 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.
Remember, you are loved.
