St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and this is a perfect meal to celebrate with.
----Everyone is Irish on St.Paddy's Day!----
*Horseradish Mustard = 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard and 1/4 cup prepared horseradish*
This seems complicated, but when you have made it once, it really isn't. This is a huge favourite and also the meal my eldest asks for every birthday. I serve it with garlic mashed potatoes and usually asparagus because that is his fave or broccoli au gratin.
These are easy, crisp and lovely to have with coffee or tea. I usually make them at Christmas.
*On a side note: this Christmas 2006, I exchanged the 3/4 cup of almonds for 3/4 cup of candied ginger, chopped fine...just yummy!
This is a fabulous accompaniment to any grilled meats...especially souvlaki pork or chicken and even lamb. It's also yummy as a dip for veggies. Heres a tip: grill some greek-style marinated pork or chicken, slather tzatziki sauce on a fresh pita bread, add meat, then top off with thinly sliced onion and some sliced tomato-a little more sauce on top and voila...Souvlaki Pita!
*You can use low-fat sour cream or plain yogurt.
This recipe was passed to me from my late mother-in-law...the VERY first time I met her AND my soon to be husband's extended family. She told me if I was going to marry her son I better learn how to make this recipe real quick...good thing I love to cook huh! It's ALL about the food!
I was home feeling out of sorts so I hauled out my food processor and started rummaging in the fridge and pantry. This soup is what I came up with and everyone just loves it. My fella called me from work and said I took soup for lunch and its fantastic--make it every week-DON'T change a thing. I laughed and said...ok, I guess I better write down what I did before I forget. HEEHEE
