Today's Recipes for the Potluck

Today's a big day in the Gender-role-free Contra Dance world. We are having the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of this twice a month dance series in Jamaica Plain. We have an afternoon dance for experienced dancers and an evening dance for everyone with potluck snacks, supper, and dessert at appropriate times. Six callers and three bands. And commemorative t-shirts for sale.

We're bringing a cranberry bread (made last fall) for snacks and I just made a stirfry for supper.

Spiced chicken sausage
red peppers
carrots - juilienned
okra! (usually found only in crossword puzzles)
snow peas
thyme, oregano, pepper, and vegetable bouillon

I made this up as I went along using stuff I found at WholeFoods yesterday plus stuff in the house. I sautéed the veggies in appropriate order in olive oil adding the bouillon near the end and covered it so the steam would stay in. I sautéed the sliced chicken sausage separately so it would get browned. (I did the okra first to see what it tasted like).

Cranberry bread
2 tbsp butter
1 cup sugar (1/2 white , 1/2 brown)
2 eggs
1 orange cut up removing pips
mix into this
2 cups whole wheat flour
Why no wheat germ? **
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 /12 cup cranberries

bake 30-35 minutes @375
We usually double the recipe and use 3 loaf pans

** all the recipes in this series (from Adele Davis, but probably modified by my ex-wife of many years ago) have wheat germ. I've been making this recipe for 40 years - usually around thanksgiving time. Sometimes we add wheat germ ~1/2 cup

chicken sausage! you've made bubblebabble happy :)

As it happens there was nothing "meatier" than chicken at the potluck.

bread that is several months old? won't it be stale by now?

That's what the freezer is for.
