One week to Christmas and we thought it was time to start planning the menu, but first a glance around the net to reprise some nostalgic oldies.
A friend of ours recently opined that there is room at the table for everyone, he was speaking of the recently concluded US elections and aftermath but I took it to apply as well to the literal table.
This year why not try a joint venture culinaire; meat-eaters and vegetarians at the same table, something for everybody (it may become a learning experience after all), and make sure you put something outside on the tree for the critters to eat.
A few of our favorite sweet suggestions from both sides of the table.
Put clean snow in a bowl, add a little milk (soy milk for vegans) to desired thickness, sugar to taste and there ya have it! You can also add chocolate or strawberry syrup for flavored snow cream. If you want something really different, add a little Kool-Aid powder (skip the Kool-Aid if you're vegetarian)
Spread with Jam, roll up and coat with sugar. Slice into small rounds. This are wonderful served warm with Snow Cream.
