Smashed Antipasto Olive Relish.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I think I got my first computer in about 1999, and if we all remember the printer paper was in a heavy box. Printers used paper that was boxed for a continuous feed and was perforated to tear easy. Tearing took place between the pages and along each side (where the little holes were punched out so that the paper could be fed over a wheel as the printing took place.) of each piece of paper.

I worked in Accounts Receivable at the time, and we were allowed to take those sheets that fed through the printer between print orders. So I did. It is this paper that I used to print off recipes from the internet. And now some 15 years after printing this recipe, I am making Smashed Antipasto Olive Relish. I can see the little print date on the lower right-hand side of the printing, which served to bring back many memories!

And now I give to you this relish...it goes without saying that this would be wonderful with cold meats, on a sandwich or with a salad. The leftover brine would also make a great marinade for chicken or pork.

Smashed Antipasto Olive Relish, chop, mix, chill, enjoy!

Smashed Antipasto Olive Relish
adapted from: Yahoo Food! - Nick Sundberg
makes 1 pint

1 16oz can black olives, drained
1 thickish slice onion, minced - we used red onion
1 rib celery, minced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/4 t sugar
1/2 oregano leaves
1/2 c vinegar - we used cider, but feel free to use white wine vinegar
1/4 c water
2 T olive oil

Crumble the olives between your thumb and forefinger. Combine with remaining ingredients, refrigerate overnight before using.

Should keep well for approximately 2 months, but my guess is, it won't last that long!

Enjoy!

Sunday Supper Suggestion, Lemon Cheesecake with Lemon Curd and Blueberry Sauce

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

For the longest time, I did not think I liked cheesecake. I understand that from a calorie point of view, not liking cheesecake might be a good thing. But my dear husband Terry is a serious cheesecake fan, having boasted a time or two that he ate 13 (yep thirteen!) pieces of cheesecake at a single sitting.

Bless his heart, just for the record, it is always the skinny ones........

But the truth is, I love cream cheese. It is creamy and tangy and rich. It seems I also love cheesecake, but not the traditional spring form pan and that particular presentation. It can also be a challenge to serve. Enter the standard 9X13 pan, coupled with the same wonderful cheesecake flavor, and an easy to serve bonus.


Lemon Cheesecake with Lemon Curd and Blueberry Sauce
by the seat of my pants
350-degree oven

Crust:
2 c crushed graham crackers
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c melted butter


Cheesecake:
3 8oz packages cream cheese
3/4 c sugar
dash salt
1 T flour
4 eggs
juice of 1 lemon


1 1/2 c lemon curd, homemade or purchased

Blueberry Sauce:
4 c blueberries - fresh or frozen (no need to thaw)
2/3 c sugar
dash of salt
1 c water - divided
1/2 t cinnamon
2 T cornstarch

To make the crust, combine all ingredients, press gently into the bottom of a prepared 9X13 pan. Set aside.

Beat cream cheese until smooth, beat in sugar, salt, and flour. Add eggs one at a time, mix in completely. Add lemon juice, mix well, scrape bottom and side of the bowl, mix again if needed.

Gently pour cream cheese mixture over crust. Bake 45-60 minutes or until done in your oven. Set aside to cool. When warm to the touch, spread with the lemon curd. Let cool completely.

To make the Blueberry Sauce, combine the berries, sugar, salt, cinnamon and 3/4 c water. Bring to a boil, simmer 5 minutes. Stir cornstarch into the remaining water, until smooth. Add to the blueberry mixture, cook until thickened and transparent.

Serve squares of cheesecake with blueberry sauce.


Enjoy!

Chicken and Onions baked with Rosemary, Toasted Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…


Sometimes when we cook, the ingredients are the recipe. I would suspect that this is exactly how all food was cooked in many kitchens for many years. Food based on what you held in your pantry or had just harvested from the garden or while out hunting. That coupled with frugal ways, led to some great dining experiences.

While this might not be considered gourmet, it is very very delicious and we shall enjoy it again when cooking from our pantry. I hope you give it a try or use it as a starting point for your own journey of cooking with what you have. Take a chance, life is delicious! PS, this dish is great served with sweet potatoes baked in their own jackets.
