I had an awesome weekend with my in-laws! I miss them already. :-(
Happy holidays from us!
My wonderful Club kids! Above is a pic of some of my Torch Club members serving Green Eggs and Ham to the younger kids at the Club. These kids are AMAZING.
Torch Club members are responsible for planning and implementing Club and Community service projects and events. The first project for 2008 was a Green Eggs and Ham day for the little kids at the Club. Torch Club members read Dr. Seusse's famous book, colored pictures of Sam I Am with the little ones, prepared and served Green Eggs and Ham, and played pin the green egg on the plate.
Green Eggs and Ham are easy to make! Just follow this recipe on seussville.com!
"Say!I like green eggs and ham!I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!And I would eat them in a boat.And I would eat them with a goat...And I will eat them in the rain.And in the dark. And on a train.And in a car. And in a tree.They are so good, so good, you see!"
The pot stickers were flavorful but something went wrong in the cooking part of it. They were a bit gooey. I had made pot stickers once before these and I really enjoyed them--I don't know what I did differently this time. I don't think I browned them enough before adding the water.
Asian Noodle Salad:
1 packages linguine noodles, cooked, rinsed, and cooled -- I used 1/2 package
1/2 to 1 head sliced Napa cabbage -- I used half
1/2 to 1 head sliced purple cabbage -- I used half
1/2 to 1 bag baby spinach -- I used half
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 orange bell pepper, sliced thin -- I omitted this
1 small bag bean sprouts (also called “mung bean sprouts”) --- I omitted this
3 sliced scallions
LOTS of chopped cilantro—up to one bunch
1 can whole cashews, lightly toasted in skillet -- didn't have any so I used almonds instead
DRESSING:--THIS IS AMAZING!!!
Juice of 1 lime
8 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
6 tablespoons soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped
2 cloves chopped
2 hot peppers or jalapenos, chopped
More chopped cilantro—LOTS
Mix together salad ingredients. Whisk together dressing ingredients and pour over salad. Mix with tongs or hands and serve on platter.
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 cup napa cabbage, chopped
3 scallion, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
Freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon seasame oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
15-20 wonton wrappers
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
Mix pork, cabbage, scallions, cilantro, ginger, seasame oil, sugar, salt, and soy sauce together. Lay out wonton wrapper and place 1 tablespoon (or a bit less) in the middle of the wrapper. Fold wrap in half over mixture and seal together with water; repeat until meat mixture is done.
Heat vegetable oil in deep fry pan. Place pot stickers into heated oil and brown both sides (approximately 30-45 seconds per side) Add water and bring to gentle boil for 8 minutes. Remove from water and serve.
The recipe called for any type of pre-processed green salsa. We selected the Pace Salsa Verde (pictured at right) and it's the only kind I've ever used with this recipe. I had never been impressed with a Pace product until I tried this. Don't feel obligated to use this in your soup, it's merely a suggestion--you could be super natural and make your own, but I'm lazy on weeknights.
1 small white onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 jar salsa verde
1 can northern white beans (or any type of white bean you like)
2 cups chicken broth
Drizzle bottom of saucepan with oil, heat. Add chopped onions and garlic, sautee until transluscent. Add ground turkey to sauce pan and throughly cook. Add cilantro, salsa verde, beans, and chicken broth to saucepan;stir. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
