There is more to today then “dye those eggs day.” Lent wears long, the hope of meat flickers on the horizon, and the busy weekend is about to arrive. Take tonight to cleanse you palate (along with your feet) for the ham, chocolate and egg salad days ahead.
Shellfish Chowder – Spicy recipe that could easily be adapted to local options as part of a list of suggested dishes from NBC’s Today Show including a cucumber margarita.
Fish Pie – Like a shepherd’s pie with white fish and cream sauce. Nice way learn how to oven poach fish. Look for a step by step post soon on this one… it’s a keeper!
Cod and Potato Fritters – Baking powder fritters from Spain traditionally served with veggie fritters.
Krautelsuppe (Green Herb Soup) – German 7 herb / 7 green soup with a flair for the local and in season. Another take incorporates cabbage and green beans. History of 7 and 9 herbs being used and a great picture of kids examining a picnic table lined with green bowels :-).
Rempah (Malay Curry) – Sweet potato with coconut milk, Chinese five spice, and ginger.
Baked Goods (you don’t really want sugar this week… do you?)
Good Friday Bread – Simple white bread with a bit of sugar and caraway seeds.
Gluten and Dairy Free Hot Cross Bun Recipe – >15 ingredients, but a good way to ensure that everyone can enjoy a sweet and flavorful tradition.
