Caprese kabobs! Always a huge hit and so easy. Just half cherry tomatoes and cherry-sized mozzarella, then put them on a toothpick with some fresh basil. Drizzle with olive oil and some salt and pepper. I also like to put balsamic vinegar on there!
I prefer to bring my favorite flavorful hummus with raw veggies. Since I am vegan, I always know there will be something good and healthy that I can eat.
I have a great baked bean recipe that people love!
PASTA SALAD EXTRAVAGANZA............ITS GOT SO MANY FRESH VEGGIES IN IT ONE COULD ALMOST CALL IT A VEGETARIAN DISH. IN THE WINTER ITS "WHITE CHICKEN CHILLI".
leaning towards the veggie lifestyle-lettie
A simple fresh fruit salad (mixed berry with pineapple, for example), complete with the juice from one or more oranges or limes.
Ham Roll ups made with Flour Tortillas- easy and delish
my go to is any baked cheese dip with reduced or fat-free cream cheese. served with veggies, pita chips, or multigrain crackers.
I like to bring cole slaw
I like to bring one of my favorite Eating Well Recipe:
Spiced lentil/eggplant salad with mangos
What I like to bring is a nice can of tomatoe soup
Lasagna (my mother's recipe) is always a hit!
Chopped Chicken Liver (Saltine with crackers) and/or a Turkey.
Even if you dont eat liver no one can resist my Chopped Chicken Liver. I believe it's all in the chopping done with athletic stance and love. And of course, no one even takes a bite of anything 'til the turkey is on the table. Frankly, I haven't ever eaten a better one than the one I make. Just ask all the women who attend groups I'm involved with. I do enjoy cooking. My secret to Turkey(?) - baste inside and out with butter (oleo is ok), line pan with foil and cover bird with foil. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder (inside and outside), a couple of onion strips on top of breast and bake at 375 degrees for about 3 hours (using a 15 lb. bird). Around 20 minutes before you remove from oven take foil off top of bird and continue to cook until skin is golden brown. During the baking process (about every 30 minutes) baste with juices. After you've initially started baking turn on TV and tune in to channel TCM or other movie channel and watch a flick. You know, "go to the movies". By the time our bird is cooked the movie has ended and you've got a few hot meals, left-over turkey sandwiches and turkey soup.
I'm so hungry I think I'll buy a bird today.
