Last night’s dinner
Actually, this is Wednesday night’s dinner but last night a nice chicken sandwich was eaten in the car as I raced my Mom and the baby back to Ottawa. Neither of them were thrilled to be in the car.
The pie was a BIG hit with Sue even saying that it was her favourite treat that I had made ever. Yay! How satisfying. It’s also all gone now.
My Mom’s disease is making it so that she doesn’t like to eat something that isn’t completely familar. I like to experiment and this is not a good combination. I’ve decided then to made homemade hamburgers and buns (woot to the woot! for the breadmaker) and then just a big salad.
My friend Sara gave me a quickie salad dressing recipe the other day that I am dying to make and can guarantee will be a big hit. It is equal parts; olive oil, balsamic and maple syrup. Simple and delicious.
The burgers are just; worsteshire, panko, an egg, 1 tsp dijon, chopped thyme from the garden and about a tablespoon of Epicure’s french onion dip mix to a pound of ground beef.
The buns are the good old recipe that I have already detailed but this time I’m adding flax seeds to sneak in some Omega-3’s. The arthritis doctor that we were at yesterday was rhapsodizing about Omega-3’s and has put Mom on a massive dose each day to aid her knee and hands. Fingers crossed because it is also linked to an improvement in brain function.
