Mother's Day Lunch May 16, 2009

Cubanelle Pepper Sandwich

Cubanelle Pepper Sandwich

Jamie says: I was at Publix and I thought of how my mom makes delicious cubanelle pepper sandwiches…so I bought the ingredients and a nice loaf of multigrain bread from the bakery.  K and I made them a little differently than mom.  We sauteed the cubanelle peppers, mushrooms, and onions in olive oil, added the tomato sauce and tomato paste, added this to the bread, and sprinkled mozzerella cheese on top.  Mom (and everyone) enjoyed the lunch; mom said she was thinking earlier how she really wanted those sandwiches…like mother, like daughter.

Mother’s Day Breakfast May 15, 2009

Chestnut Crepes with Fruit

Chestnut Crepes with Fruit

Kathryn says: I think it’s quite appropriate to start this blog with a meal we cooked for our mother this Mother’s Day.  After all, she taught us how to cook.  She always let us “help out” in the kitchen, even if it meant us spilling flour everywhere and wanting a spoon of the butter-sugar mixture.

Now we can cook some delicious meals for her with the skills she taught us.  But we’re still always learning more from her in the kitchen.
For breakfast, we made crepes.  We used a chestnut flour batter Mom bought from a health food store.  Jamie was much better at making the crepes than I was because she made them thick so they wouldn’t rip. 
Then, we added sliced bananas, strawberries and blackberries.  We sprinkled cinnamon on top.  Dad thought to add a dollop of sour cream to the top, which I absolutely loved.  We used toothpicks to hold the crepes together because they were so stuffed we couldn’t roll them. 
We ate them with forks and used fine China for the special morning.  Everyone loved it!
