Today I decided to try my hand at something I have never had or made, Eggplant Parmigiana:) This is my Grandma's Favorite meal, so I thought, why not! I also made stuffed Mushrooms and whole wheat spaghetti w/ sauce. For dessert I made another new recipe, SNOW ICE CREAM!!! Recipes to follow:)
Sammy helping me with the spaghetti and marinara sauce:)
These are the stuffed mushrooms before there cooked. For these I just took at 1/2 teaspoon and scooped them out, then added a small piece of string cheese in each of them. The I added the minced stalk of the mushroom, a few tables spoons of Italian style breadcrumbs and about 1/3 cup of cooked Italian sausage. Then I just put them in the over with the eggplant after the sauce and cheese was added for about 15-20 minutes. I would probably add a small bit of butter on top of each one and then maybe a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Still, these were yummy:)
This is the egg plant baking before the sauce. The recipe I used is HERE and I actually thought it was quite yummy. Will have to work on the rest of the family though..... there all still wondering..."where's the beef!"
added the sauce and cheese, then put it back in with the mushrooms.
All done!! YUM!
This is the finally plate:) I dig it:)
And to finish, the most wonderful yummy I never knew about till now! SNOW CREAM! Here is the recipe, cause you MUST make this!
1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk
1.When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. ( I just scooped up some in a bowl that was fresh and untouched) When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once. ( we left our bowl in the snow till after dinner)
(i used white sugar and whole milk this time, would like to try skim milk and honey next time though:)
We also added one of those small tiny packets of koolaid mixes ( the ones that are 15 cents) to give it a special flavor. Watermelon cherry. OH MY GOODNESS~! This is SO YUMMY PEOPLE!!! And just look ( if your in Kansas ), there is TONS of snow outside just screaming to be snow cream! MUST TRY!!
