Breakfast for Dinner – high protein and almost healthy

Menu: Sausage’n’Sweet Potato Frittata; cheesy scones; UTI GF English Muffin; fresh bell pepper strips; reduced salt chips; Snowballs TM

Creator of deliciousness: CTG

This week it was announced we were having breakfast for dinner. After checking with NP, CTG decided to go ahead with finely diced onions, disguised with shredded sweet potato. This is a frittata recipe I approve of, because you add the eggs and start them cooking on the stove top, then once the edges are looking cooked, into the oven for a nice golden top and to finish the centre. I’m the person at the diner ordering my eggs “cooked over-hard and by hard I mean dead.” So I like the extra cooking time.

CTG cooked the sausage meat, onions and sweet potato earlier in the day and let the flavours mellow in the fridge for a few hours. I recommend this if you have the time. It cut cooking time at dinner and allowed the  flavours to blend really well with a certain sweetness.

The cheesy scones and GF emglish muffin were oven toasted and served hot w/softened butter. The bell pepper strips were raw and made sure we really all got our veggies.

GF brought the Snowballs (a British/Newfie treat). We lucked out ’cause they didn’t fit in the shipment of a care package for family members that love them. A Snowball is marshmellow fluff, encased in chocolate “flavoured” coating, rolled in coconut. This makes them low fat, but don’t be fooled, lots of calories and sugar in these treats.

New Person tries New Things with Success!

Menu: Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/coleslaw

Creator of deliciousness: NP

This week we had stormy stormy weather. NP was gracious enough to allow our island stranded friend Sailor J to join us for dinner. Sailor J provided us with a bottle of white wine since we didn’t know what was on the menu. It arrived chilled and I’m told was good with dinner.

GF brought her own gluten free buns, we gluten eaters, had wonderful soft grocery store bakery rolls. Now some people know the key to a great pulled pork sandwich is to put the coleslaw in it. Others prefer it on the side. When it came to my plate I did both.

Pulled pork was of the slow-cooker variety and everything a good pulled pork should be; saucy; tender and delicious.

I’m pretty sure the coleslaw was the out of the bag kind but I believe the dressing was out of a bottle with salt and pepper added201211 pulled pork.
