 I think tomorrow's dinner is being planned right now...

I have become fortunate in that my husband is having some "at home" time. And as it turns out, he is a good cook! It is wonderful to come home and have dinner ready, the table set and a glass of wine waiting for me........

You know this girl would like to could get used to this, but I digress, let's get on to the recipe!

Fruit and Veggie Breakfast Squares

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…

These little squares of goodness are a breakfast on your plate! Filled with whole grains, dried fruit, berries, and spinach, they are sweetened with maple syrup and take very kindly to rewarming and a smear of butter on the leftovers! What drew me to this recipe was the opportunity to use up the large packages of spinach we purchase to use in our sandwiches, and it is a stroke of genius that we not only remain frugal but have something delicious to enjoy!

I hope you give them a try, these squares are also perfect as a snack, when you are feeling a bit peckish from a long day, of doing exactly what you wish...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pudding Cake, a slow cooker recipe

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…

This dessert is one of those treats that you read about, and make, and upon first taste think, "it could be better". But because you hate food waste, you don't throw it out. And in the end, you are glad, because this is delicious when cool. and it goes without saying, a little bit of whipped cream is quite nice.

I have learned that I am not a fan of the flavor of hot peanut butter, not in cookies or this delightful dessert. But when cool, heaven help me! Peanut butter is always a good choice in desserts, sauces and sandwiches, and always present in my pantry.

Also having another slow cooker dessert is never a bad thing!

I do have to apologize, I have lost the source of the recipe. So if you developed this jewel, please let me know so I can give you your due credit!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pudding Cake

1 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 t baking powder

Spray the cooker insert with Pam and spoon the batter into the bottom. Smooth the top.

Roasted Garlic Soup

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…

Yesterday was a stock-making day. I had a bag of bones in the freezer and a crockpot at the ready to work hard for me all day, while I was off busy doing other things. The ending result was a gallon of delicious chicken stock. Once the stock was completed, I decided upon this simple yet utterly delicious soup. 


Roasted Garlic soup, delicious and so good for you with lots of garlic.
Roasted Garlic Soup.


Roasted Garlic Soup
adapted from:  Take This Dish and Twist It
by:  George Duran

2-3 heads of garlic (full bulbs)
2-3 t olive oil
2 T butter
1/2 c finely chopped onion
2 t paprika
1/2 t ground cumin
4 c rich chicken stock
sea salt
snipped fresh parsley
Garlic Croutons - see below, you can make these while the garlic roasts.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the top off garlic, wrap in foil leaving the cut edge exposed. Bathe the top with olive oil. Roast 30 minutes, set aside to cool.

Gently squeeze garlic cloves from the head, separating the head if needed to make it possible for the garlic to slip free of the skins. Slice the garlic, if desired.





While the garlic is roasting, you can make the Garlic Croutons.




Assemble the soup:

Melt the butter in a large pan, over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook slowly for 5-8 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent, do not brown. Add stock, paprika and cumin. Bring to a boil, add garlic, reduce heat to simmer, simmer for 15 minutes. When using homemade stock, check for/and adjust salt.


Serve with snipped parsley and the croutons.

Makes 4 servings

Croutons

4 slices sandwich bread, crusts trimmed
1 T olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed with the back of a knife.


Warm oil over medium heat, add garlic and cook until garlic is brown, remove and discard. Add bread, increase heat to high, gently cook and stir until bread is coated with the garlic oil and golden brown. Remove to cool to paper toweling.


Enjoy!
